Keeping good thoughts during your tweaking Karen. I wish you much success.
Actually it said that there is not very good reason to assume omega 3 oils work well. The effects on Epilepsy, Crohns Disease & uncerative Colitis were all given 2 stars. According to the site 2 stars means:I found this helpful site that sorts out the research on different beneficial aspects of Omega 3 fish oils.
It may be helping Jon in at least 3 ways:
1) Anti-convulsive and neuroprotective effects
2) Studies found it helpful with both Crohns disease and Ulcerative Colitis -- seems like it promotes good gut health.
3) AND...photosensitivity!!! There is a condition called Polymorphous Light Eruption, which is a type of allergy to the sun -- people get rashes when exposed to sunlight or other UV light -- and one study found that fish oil was helpful with this condition. So...that begs the question...it it's helpful with one type of photosensitivity, could it be helpful with seizures triggered by sunlight?
Photo sensitivity was given only 1 star. 1 star means:Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
Also the photo sensitivity this site refers to is not neurological but dermatological photo sensitivity http://www.uofmhealth.org/health-library/hn-1248007#hn-1248007-need-to-knowFor an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Eric, I realize there's a lot of pressure in epilepsy which is why I choose to cut you plenty of slack. But I will say what you've said here is insensitive and flat out wrong. Moreover, you're belittling the actual content of this discussion with meaningless tangents. Good day to you.Dogtor J has shown himself to be quite a quack.
Personally I would be careful of anyone who thinks that what works for a dog would automatically work for humans, not to mention all the other things he does.
You are right I did overstep the boundary by calling him a name & I apologise for that.Eric, I realize there's a lot of pressure in epilepsy which is why I choose to cut you plenty of slack.
