How Can a High-Fat Diet Treat Epilepsy? Dr. Besser Reports

Here is the quote where the interview becomes real interesting:


Thiele: We've seen many children who are having hundred of seizures a day become seizure-free oftentimes within just a few weeks of being on the diet.

Besser: That's miraculous.

Thiele: It's miraculous. No, it's a miracle. And many children who go on this diet have already been on six or eight or 10 anti-convulsion medications without effective seizure control or with side effects that can't be tolerated. And they go on this diet and become seizure-free. About a third of children who go on this diet become completely seizure-free.
