Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   Avoid steroids such as dehydroepiandrosterone.

•   Check for hormonal imbalances; low progesterone can be trigger for seizures.

•   Practice good sleep habits; get between 8-9 hours of sleep every night.

•   Participate in a regular balanced exercise program that includes wearing a pedometer or FitBit tracker to encourage          more movement and calculate steps taken, distance walked, and calories burned. High intensity short bursts (20-60          seconds) of activity during the day is recommended to enhance growth hormone release. Also engage in resistance          training that works all major muscle groups (work each group at least 2 times a week).

•   Work towards self-care; try therapeutic body-based methods such as chiropractic and massage; consider Epsom salt         baths.

•   Avoid or limit caffeine, alcohol and other potentially neurotoxic compounds like aspartame, nicotine and MSG.

•   Avoid exposure to chemicals; use organic and natural personal health care products and household cleaning                       products.

•   Consider testing for blood sugar levels, hormonesheavy metals, and toxins, nutrient levels, oxidative stress, and food    sensitivities such as IgGs or ALCAT.

•   The levels of certain anti-seizure medication can be altered by hormonal changes, as some medications and                         hormones both effect liver glucoronidation. Certain medications, such as phenobarbital, can contribute to specific             nutrient deficiencies (folate, carnitine).

•   Rule out any head trauma; consider neurofeedback.

Dietary Tips and Caveats:

•   Consider a ketogenic diet; it has been shown to be successful in children with chronic seizures.

•   Emphasize omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna) and omega-9 fats (olive oil, olives, almonds,                       hazelnuts, avocados, macadamia oil and coconut oil).

•   Choose lean, clean, quality protein at each meal such as chicken breast, turkey breast, lean beef, fish (especially                 salmon and tuna), eggs and whey protein.

•   Avoid genetically modified foods, food additives and colorings.

•   Limit or avoid trans fatty acids (hydrogenated vegetable oil, margarine  and shortening). Cook with olive oil at low heat     or coconut or avocado oil if using high heat.

•   Drink at least 64 ounces of filtered, bottled or non-chlorinated water every day.

•   Avoid gluten and dairy if sensitivity exists, as these can modulate brain health if not effectively digested due to the            casomorphins and gliadorphin.

•   Strive to keep blood sugar optimal; snack on healthy fats such as coconut, nuts, seeds, avocados, and PaleoBars™            as needed to avoid hypoglycemia.
