Today, we’re going to talk about epilepsy and the ketogenic diet. In 1923 Dr. Russell Wilder noticed that a low-carb diet had the potential to reduce a person’s seizures by 50%. 15% of the group completely got rid of their seizures.
This actually started the classic ketogenic diet for epilepsy. Of course, the keto diet has since evolved into different ratios of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. The higher the ratio of fat you have to protein and carbs, the more you’ll be able to get into ketosis.
It’s not really known why the keto diet may help with seizures, but there are a few theories.
Theory #1: Keto improves the stability of synapses between neurons.
Theory #2: Ketones have anticonvulsant effects.
Theory #3 Keto decreases brain inflammation.
There are a few potential side effects a person could experience after going on the classic keto diet. I think this could be because the classic ketogenic diet focuses more on macros than it does on the quality of foods the person is eating.
If someone wanted to try doing the keto diet for epilepsy, they might want to tweak it a little bit to make it healthier. I would try to do organic, grass-fed, wild-caught, pasture-raised foods.
A few more tips to make the classic keto diet healthier:
1. Add intermittent fasting
2. Avoid vegetable oils
3. Consume more vegetables and salads (with olive oil is even better)
4. Take purified bile salts
5. Take whole food vitamins
6. Take electrolytes, including potassium citrate
7. Take sea salt (1-1.5 tsp.)
