Hello everyone! My 4 yo dau has been seizing for about 2 years now and is worsening. Can't get into the doc again until October, apparently the only other clinics in MO have stopped taking patients so they're all being funneled to her doc's office.
So since I can't talk to him about her...
I am a 61 year old male. I have had nocturnal seizures 1/week all my life. I take selected AED medication. I have been adjusting my diet over the last 20 years to eliminate those foods that seem to cause a seizure to occur or increase the intensity of the seizure. I noticed that my diet has...
I saw this movie last night. Those of you interested in the GARD diet, gut brain and other related issues should check it out. It should really add to your motivation to eliminate milk, corn and soy from your diets.
Hello. Although I am new to this forum, I started watching it on and off about a year and a half ago. I was interested at that time in magnesium therapy for my son, Uriah. I had found magnesium looking up a cure for depression. At that time, Uriah had been having uncontrolled grand mal...

Yes, there really is a group of “gluten doctors” who take the gluten\seizure connection seriously. A lot of us have figured out that the gluten free diet for celiacs may also work as a treatment for many folks with seizures, whether or not we are diagnosed with celiac disease. Today...
This quote is from an article by a gastroenterologist. He reccomends a gluten free diet for people with neurological and psychiatric symptoms. This diet is one of the major changes that put me on the path to overcoming my seizures naturally after my brain surgery for seizures failed...

I wanted to start another thread base on a correspondence that I just had with someone who stated that they were "on the GARD" and not really seeing results.
When I receive Emails of this nature, the first thing I do is ask for them to send me a complete list of the foods they...
I have read a few things online about how diets without gluten and/or dairy may completely relieve people of their seizures. Does anyone know any good articles discussing this?
Another question is whether there is a link between high protein diets and seizure activity. I just started drinking...
I've had the good fortune to know that I have an intolerance to gluten a good portion of my life. It was an accident that I discovered what was causing my health issues. I did not learn it from a Doctor.
I mention it here for a couple of reasons. I've read all I can about it. In the process I...

2 parts white rice flour
2/3 part potato starch flour
1/3 part tapioca starch.
With a teaspoon of xanthan gum per cup of flour mix, it can be used as a direct...
