Please join us on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 from 6:30PM – 8:00PM for our Peace of Mind Lecture

Dietary Therapies for Epilepsy

This lecture will explore the different diets available for epilepsy. We will explore the process of initiation and therapy, the similarities and differences between the diets, side effects, how effective they are, and what you can and can’t eat on each diet. The diet therapy is not limited to children; adult patients are also very successful with controlling seizures on these diets.

Please note, this lecture is not a consultation, information will be provided on how to establish care with a doctor and registered dietitian to explore if dietary therapy for epilepsy is appropriate for you or your loved ones. This diet is a medical intervention and must only be done under the close supervision of a doctor and registered dietitian.
