one cause of epileptic seizures is an overdose of glutamic and aspartic acid.
many foods contain these amino acids in their free state which creates a shutdown of neurotransmitter production in the brain, along with oxidizing it.
i don't mean to be 'selling' anything, I have written a book on the subject of how dangerous these free form amino acids are to the brain affecting/causing everything from bi-polar disorder, anxiety, panic, rage.. to physical symptoms such as epilepsy, stroke, parkinson's, altzheimers..
the info is too vast to write here, however the main things to avoid are msg, which is freed glutamic acid and all things high in freed glutamic acid... there is a list of food substances in my book.
also, aspartic acid in nutrasweet, fried foods.. processed foods..
the biggest culprits, cooked food, soy, oats, barley, wheat, grains, nuts, seeds, .... The obvious processed foods/foods that outright contain msg... and aspartame...
hope this helps. My book is about to be launched through a site, if you contact me through this thread (as in, let me know you read this here) I'm happy to send anyone suffering from epilepsy a copy of my book.. you can donate later if it helps.
it will be the last version before being edited for the upcoming launch.... Not the final version... the info is valuable
the book is geared toward those who suffer from emotional disorders mild to severe and raising consciousness through live food
