Neurological Rock Stars 3 – Epilepsy Therapy Project

Whether or not you are new to epilepsy The Epilepsy Therapy Project is a great resource which provides an all round look at epilepsy, medication, mind, body and diet (even spirit 🙂 although possibly not the alcoholic type which will interfere with medications ).

In terms of information resources the latest newsletter focuses heavily on epilepsy diet and so I have posted the article by Patricia Osborne Shafer RN, MN Resource Specialist, epilepsy.com. It is a very good article about Modified Atkins Diet for epilepsy as a successful story of an alternative to drug based treatment or in conjunction with medication.

Additionally, in the same Newsletter is an equally valid an interesting post on Modified Atkins Diet in Children:

Similar therapies are the Ketogenic diet resources to be found at these links:

You can sign up for the Epilepsy Therapy Project newsletter to be sent straight to your email account.

The information on diet for epilepsy may shed light on why if you like me are epileptic you may have difficulty going to straight vegetarian or vegan diet (although if you have experience of success with either of these and epilepsy I would love to hear from you).
