Anyone know of any members, acquaintences, anyone helped with epilepsy through the BTD?

I have a good friend who's adult teen son has this.  She has not told me her son's blood  type, but I'm guessing it's like hers, Type A.

TIA.

Our eldest (42) has epilepsy (among other things) and the BTD has helped him.
The other thing that has helped him is magnesium.
I am sure there are many other things that could assist him but learning what they are is the problem.
Medical doctors offer very little constructive help in these matters and usually hold a position of power over the helpers in the organisations where the client resides.
Our son's helpers can see the difference the BTD makes and the magnesium makes and they comply and administer it anyway at great risk to themselves too I might add. It is quite a battle.    Cheers John.

I read on the internet that giving a person 1/4 teaspoon epsom salt in one glass of OJ daily will stop and ease the number of seizures (it was called grand mal seizure)  I don't know but I would say it's worth a try .

Hi pipnjohn,

years ago epileptic seizures were minimized with the use of taurine.  It's primary function is to hold zinc onto cells' outer membranes ,,, so your son should find extra cell stability by taking 25mg - zinc + 2.5mg - copper + 1000mg - taurine (small amount) at the same time.

On the insides of cells there are specialized centers called organelles.  These too have membrane walls that are kept-apart by the action of taurine (but on cells' insides) binding magnesium to cell-organelle-membranes.  So at another meal ... try supplementing magnesium + 300mg potassium + 1000mg - taurine.  [great for the heart! ]

Hopefully by doing this much more stability will be characteristic of cells and even fewer epileptic seizures.

John

You might tell your friend to look over the material on the Carbon Based Corporation website, particularly the download section. The president of the company has a child that has epilepsy and has devoted a lot of effort to trying to understand it and deal with it.

this is my first post.

i am pleased to state that i have had no (none, zilch) bothersome seizure auras (nevermind tonic-clonic episodes) since the removal of wheat, then corn, and then, now following most of er4yt diet. i originally removed the wheat after studying the anecdotes on dogtor john's site and then i was so psyched that i took my avoids a step further and added bennies after visiting this site.  it has only been two months but i'm optimistic.  bravo for those willing to investigate wellness systems rather than fragmented disease symptoms. and bravo to the internet as an equalizer of information access.

Ne'erdowell, your screen name is adorable, but I predict after being on the BTD for a while longer, you'll want to change it, maybe to everdowell! cheers!
