Researchers and physicians have tested and used a low carb high fat diet type of diet for years in treating epilepsy.
In fact, it has been studied for the treatment of epilepsy since the 1920’s.
One study found that 75.8% of epileptic children on a low carb high fat type of diet had fewer seizures after only one month of treatment!
Moreover, after 6 months, half of the patients had at least a 90% decrease in seizure frequency, while 50% of these patients reported a complete remission.
This is a promising study for you if you or anyone you know has epileptic seizures.
An important note about the study.
In the start of the study, almost all of subjects were malnourished and were below a healthy weight.
Amazingly though, at the end of the study, everyone had reached a healthy weight and improved their nutritional health.
A year after the diet, 5 of the 29 participants remained seizure-free!
Some of the participants reduced or completely stopped their anti-seizure medication.
The summary is this; a low carb high fat diet can help reduce the frequency of seizures in epileptic children. In some cases eliminating the seizures altogether.
If you have seizures or other health problems, maybe it is time to make a diet that will help you to improve your health.
