I am a man in my 50s that has seen many natural cures. I just seem to have eyes and ears open for them.
 
about epilepsy, I have known many people in my life that have had epilepsy. Three of them were very skinny. They didn't believe in eating sugar or fats, bread, anything that would put on some weight and muscle tone. Some people get epilepsy from a bump on the head, but not everyone. The people that are usually too skinny don't know they are. A middle aged woman one time said to me, "how can that teen age girl there be heavier than me? She's not near as big as me." I looked at the teenager and noticed that the teen was definitely bigger that this middle aged woman and I told her so. Size can be disceiving as we lose weight.
 
I used to work with a woman named Becky who prided herself in being lean. She had enormous will power. She hardly ever ate bread and not much meat. Usually salad for lunch. Some of that will power is good, but too much can kill you.
 
There was a special news report on Epilepsy that was done here in the Phoenix, AZ area that lasted all week long. They asked different hospitals why they stopped using a special high fat, high colesterol diet that would always cure epilepsy in two years. They would answer, "I don't know." It was a special percentage they said of fat to protein. If you can't find this old diet that was swept under the rug I wouldn't let that stop me.
 
The famous epileptic, Melissa DeHart started having seisures. I knew if she lived long enough she would with here lean diet and 60 Lb body.
 
Becky in her 40s had at least one seisure I know of. I knew she would. How did I know this? When Becky would eat lunch her facial muscles would twitch like a bunny rabbit's face does. This is normal for bunny rabbits but not humans. Becky was too nevous to the point of being unhealthy. Some of her teeth were dark. Her once toned up body had lost it's muscle tone. Her arms and legs were straight. I told her from my own experience with being an anorexic at one time that it is very important to eat enough calories. Bread is a very important part of the diet. It will put on muscle tone again after losing it.
 
Well Becky and her friend went to California to attend a comedian's show. They were so excited about watching him. At the show Becky got real excited laughing and being loud. This caused her to have a seisure. A lot of epileptic seisures take place after being excited. They took her to the hospital where she recovered. Becky was once very athletic and still quite healthy in many ways. She used to workout with weights, and at forty four many woman wanted to look like her, but I knew even though she had a pretty face and was lean at 44 she was an unhealthy lean, too lean.
 
Did you know that when people lose too much weight they often lose inches of height? Becky had lost some height. I told her that I used to be two inches taller. I showed Becky a picture I took of her just two years before with two other women at her side. She was taller then. When Becky looked at a recent picture I took in the cafeteria of her with a friend she noticed how she had lost height. This is how some people discover they are two lean. They look at a photo of themselves and can see. People lose not just muscle tone when they lose too much weight, but they lose bone mass as well. Not just in diameter, but also in length.
 
I wrote Becky a three page letter explaining the benefits of bread in the diet. She read it a listened and did something to change. about two weeks later I noticed she was eating bread at lunch. In just a couple of weeks she responded to the higher calories faster than I thought she would. I was so happy for her. Her nervousness went away. I don't think she had anymore seisure after that. She may have had to stay away from getting over exited for a long time. I quit work with her and haven't seen her in over two years so I can't say for sure if her seisures stopped or not. I believe from experience and observations that most diseases leave if you take away what ever it was that actually cause the disease and have some patience and give it time. Usually it's something we did unknowingly to ourselves.
 
I always look for the route cause of a  disease and usually find it. Doctors always want to sell you drugs, but that isn't the route cause is it? The lack of drugs in a person's diet. God didn't design us to have seisures for something to keep us from getting board. Just use some common sense. SmartCure

SmartCure,
If something has helped cure your seizures, great, but I think what you're advocating can be dangerous - especially the lack of drugs. There are many causes for seizures, and a lot of what you describe in your post sounds more like an Eating Disorder as the primary diagnosis, and certainly seizures can result from aspects of that. It doesn't necessarily mean that's epilepsy or a seizure disorder.

I think many lifestyle things can impact our seizures - diet, sleep (big one), activities, but for most of us some medication is also needed. There's no one cure and I think it's dangerous to imply there is.

The diet you're speaking of is called the ketogenic diet. The reason it isn't used much any more is that it doesn't have that high a success rate in controlling seizures, is very damaging to the circulatory system over the long-term and is extremely hard for people to follow because it's so restrictive. I was used prior to the development of medical treatments because it was the only thing that had any success. Recent studies (within the past 10 years) have not shown its benefits to equal its risks for most people.

Judy is spot on.

I have seen the Ketogenic diet crop up a number of times in the last 18 months while I have been a moderator and my advice is always the same. If you REALLY want to try it (Depsite research suggesting it has low success rates) then PLEASE consult a medical professional before doing it. It can be very dangerous and I would NEVER advocate it as a "cure" for epilepsy

Darren, I actually have worked with children on the diet, when the neuro clinic I worked in at the time was doing a study. That diet is murder to follow, and we had 3 year-old children showing up with acne and really high cholesterol levels - like in the 400's. You're right, it can be very dangerous.

Hi, I am new here yet have 3 years experience with the Ketogenic diet. If you monitor blood work on a regular basis and get good source of nutrients to supplement diet it can be quite amazing. Our daughter was put on the diet in 11/05 and it was like lifting a veil once she was in "ketosis". Her true personality emerged and we went from 100 seizures a day to just 10. Yes still daily seizures even with meds, yet a huge decrease in medication and a much happier child is what we saw from the diet. We just came off it this fall of 2009.
For kids with G-tubes for feeding; it is an amazing seizure tool that is administered easily. We went through our local children's hospital and the special Keto diet program. Our experience has been positive over all.
