Get yourself on 10,000 IU Daily of Vitamin D3 !
A lack of D3 is the root cause of a wide range of diseases, and neurologic disease including epilepsy is included.
Please see full details is my Vitamin D3 report below the line.

Captain Vitamin D To the Rescue!
After you have been around this board for a while you will see that this same poster jumps on with this exact same message on every thread about every malady from toenail fungus to cancer.
I agree that getting adequate vitamin D is important but I think that our bodies do a fine job of that on their own if we just get outside more often in the sunshine. I think the levels of D we supposedly "need" are vastly overstated mostly by people who want to sell you vitamin D supplements. But note how they keep referring to the doctors as the ones with the profit motive.
Also notice how the "evidence" that D cures everything is that people with all these various conditions such as kidney failure and advanced heart problems and diabetes also test low on D. Of course they are low on D. They are sick and therefore stay inside all the time. Correlation does not equal causation.
Vitamin D is great but it is not a "cure" for epilepsy. I wish it were that easy.

The MD gave me Vit D.
I have not had a seizure in 35 years so i dont have a dog in this fight, but i do suspect that vit D supplementation has validity and apparantly so does my MD.... even though i really dont trust MD's
Because of the protective pigmentation in skin on people of African heritage, you would need to stay out in the sun longer than I would in order to get the same amount of vit D. As I said, D is great but natural D is better than a pill, IMO. But, take it any way you can get it.
