    Wonder if it's the ketosis that 'cures' the epilepsy...or simply the removal of some unknown carb source trigger agent (a lectin?) from the food supply?

    A similar diet is/has been recommended for kids with ASDs (Google 'autism diet').

    Sadly, It was I who found this type of diet and was willing to give it a try. I saw two different neurologists and both were completely against it. Like most doctors, they just wanted me to keep taking the pills and deal with the side effects (+60 lb. weight gain in one year!). I really had to push them to help me with it. Its now been almost 4 months since my last dosage and I haven't had any seizures yet.
