I wonder if it keeps my seizures under control or stops them altogether?

Hi Chrissy,

Free radicals are known to be involved in the occurrence of epileptic seizures. And coconut oil is known to neutralize free radicals.

A study conducted by D. L. Ross of the University of Minnesota Medical School have shown coconut oil to be effective in slashing epileptic seizures in children. After 10 weeks of treating epileptic children, Ross witnessed a fifty percent drop in seizure frequency in two-thirds of all the children.

So, yes, I believe it’s possible to keep your seizures under control with coconut oil.

Hope this helps,
