Re: [AlternativeAnswers] The role of inflammation in epilepsy


The 'clue' offered by the Nature Reviews folks, takes up PART of the way,
with epilepsy. What's missing is information on how to MODERATE the

My research shows that high-pH therapy is about THE BEST WAY to REDUCE the
suspected inflammation.

ANY interested individuals are invited to message me, for more information.

Thanks, and God Bless,
