Our daughter struggled with over 100 seizures every day - even while heavily medicated (and we were scared of the medicine we were giving her). We felt helpless. We took it personal. We tried everything we could find. For us, the solution was found through Johns Hopkins, Dr. Kossoff, and the Atkins Diet. In a short period of time, the Modified Atkins Diet allowed our daughter to go off all her medication - and reduced her seizures to just 15 a day. Now, a couple years later, she is seizure and medicine free. We sincerely hope our experience will help you.
