Any thoughts on how to manage this condition? This woman would like to decrease her reliance on medication. One woman with an 11-year-old epileptic daughter agrees that you should avoid medication - she's witnessed the side effects. Instead, she takes her daughter to a chiropractor, a naturopath and a kinesiologist who work together regarding her treatments. So far she has not had a seizure and reports feeling particularly good after seeing the kinesiologist. Another reader recommends testing for Pyroluria, a common condition requiring vitamin B supplementation that can cause seizures. Also get your nutritional status checked as lack of certain minerals can make it worse. Test for food intolerances and chemical sensitivities, both of which can cause seizures (MSG is particularly bad).
