Pediatrics/5 year old "zones out"


Gramma Jane wrote at 2014-07-02 23:01:35
At the age of 3 my daughter also had a high fever and after it was over she started zoning out, while she was "zoning out" she would often repeat her last few words.  She was diagnosed with petit mal epilepsy.  A close friend suggested I try calcium/magnesium and I started to give her some (I forget the dosage,this was 36 yrs ago) and it absolutely worked, I didn't have to give her any medication, the calcium/magnesium was all she took.  She is a healthy 39 yr old mother of 2.
