Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder, affecting around 1% of the world’s population. For many, drugs are available that can prevent their seizures. However, for close to one third of those who suffer from epilepsy, current medicines simply do not work. Surprisingly, a change in diet can dramatically stop seizures when medications cannot. This diet, known as the ketogenic diet, involves switching from a typical western diet of high carbohydrate content to one of almost entirely fats, which… CONTINUE READING
