Can you recover and manage without antiepileptic drugs by changing your diet? Ask Christer Kustvik, editor-in-chief at Swedish newspaper Corren:
I hope you can stand some rampant joy, dear readers, because this column will be written in a state of euphoria.
The past week has been one of the absolute best in my life.
As I wrote on Facebook:
“Yiiiihaaaa! For the first time in 20 years, I am OFF ALL MEDICATIONS!! Two decades of epilepsy problems are suddenly under control thanks to changing my diet (fewer carbohydrates /sugar). Absolutely amazing, I feel like I’m flying!”
That’s how it is.
Fewer carbohydrates/sugar has given me a new life. A healthy life.
Suddenly I feel strong. Energetic. Light.
To get well when you’re sick is like a dream. A feeling difficult to understand for healthy people, I think.
