I've had seizures since I was 13 years old, now I'm 53. Went through lots of experimental drug tests and all the other testings.They have never found where there coming from.I seen an article about coconut oil, started taking it and went from 3 seizures a month to seizure free for 5 months now.
I take 1 heaping teaspoon ever morning with 3 other prescriptions plus I have a VNS box that is suppose to help my seizures. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
First seizure in high school/Dr.s believe it is caused by meningitis when I was a baby - myelin sheaths which insulate nerves were damaged and burned with high fever. Now 40 years later am beginning to understand amino acids and vitamins can help so heard about ketogenic diet - I figured I make it easy by taking 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil - 1 in morning and another in evening.
I started in April and haven't had a seizure in four months. Reading 'Rosie's' mention of coconut oil found out I should take more and I WILL. Haven't told Dr. what I've been doing but will when I build up a little more then he'll know not just the Vagus Nerve Stimulator works. Leon
I have had epilepsy since about 17 yrs old. Now am 34. Because I had partial temporal lobe type, I never took meds (scary side effects!!! ). But last year I started having seizures more frequently and I wanted to do something about. Did ketogenic diet (strictly) for about 3 weeks, then switched to low-carb. Still had seizures. By the way, seizures seemed directly linked to my protein/fat intake. Ate lots of almonds, etc. Not as many seizures, but not cured. About 8 months later, I started drinking teas on a regular basis, teas that aid in kidney and liver function. Still had seizures.
Then I got organic good coconut oil and started using as lotion every day 2x or more. 2 months into the coconut ritual, I had allergies/cold so I took massive amounts of Vit. C, zinc, echinacia, etc. I This was in dec and january of 2012. I realized about 3 weeks ago that I have not had a seizure in about 1-2 mnths.
I think it is the coconut. That is the only thing I do every day without fail. And I have only been putting it on my skin!!! I plan on eating a little bit every day.
Of course, my Dr. has no interest in my "cure."
All along, I have noticed a direct relation between my seizures and food intake, and in particular protein/fat. It's not protein, though, it's fat that I need.
Also, my seizures started when I was in high school and started skipping lunch and eating candy and drinking Cokes.
