Epilepsy and the MicrobiomeFor 100 years Johns Hopkins Medical Center has been treating epileptic children with a low sugar, high fat diet to stop seizures. In this post I'll unpack for you why this diet works, and why you should consider looking into the Microbiome for the root cause of Epilepsy, and experience significantly healthier brain function as a result.
Epilepsy on the riseA 2017 report from Centers for Disease Control indicates the number of Americans with epilepsy is rising as population increase is falling.
- More than 3.4 million Americans have epilepsy.
- Another 200,000 new cases of epilepsy are diagnosed each year, while population increase continues to drop year after year (meaning that new cases of epilepsy aren't due to population increase.)
- New cases of epilepsy are most common among children, especially during the first year of life.
