How To Get Started
Johns Hopkins Studies
If you are following a low carb diet, the Modified Atkins Diet for Seizures, the Ketogenic Diet for Seizures, or have Epilepsy here are some additional resources that may be of interest to you:
We start with two things recommended by Dr. Kossoff in his lecture to neurologists and dieticians in Canada about the Modified Atkins Diet:
(You can watch his entire presentation here)
- Recommended book “Calorie King Fat & Carbohydrate Counter”
- Recommended for first month, one case of “KetoCal”

Recommended Reading for the Modified Atkins Diet and Keto Diets.
Ariana and Jack– A picture book about Epilepsy that helps improve the quality of life for children living with epilepsy. This sensitively told story aims to help children and families to realise that epilepsy is only one part of their lives.
Ben’s Buddies– This appealing book aims to help children, families, teachers and friends to understand epilepsy, demystify the condition and break down barriers.
Email Dr. Kossoff for a referral or information on any current studies at Johns Hopkins.
Charities for Epileptics
Each of these organizations offers some type of assistance. They have differing standards and procedures for applying for help. Please visit them for more information.
- The Epilepsy Foundation
- Cure Epilepsy The organization was founded by Susan Axelrod and a small group of parents of children with epilepsy who were frustrated with their inability to protect their children from seizures and the side effects of medications. Unwilling to sit back, they joined forces to spearhead the search for a cure.
- Both CURE and PACE are very large charitable organizations that are not Epilepsy specific. Cure’s mission is to find a cure for epilepsy, by promoting and funding patient-focused research. Contact your local Chamber of Commerce or Business organizations to find a local branch. Sometimes local businesses have additional charities that they will sponsor for people in their community needing assistance.
Many airlines run programs where their frequent flyers will donate mileage for the benefit of children that need to travel for healthcare. Both American Airlines and Northwest gave us free tickets from Colorado to Baltimore, Maryland so that we could participate in the Johns Hopkins study. Getting this assistance requires some organization and diligence in finding and applying for the benefits. Of extreme value to us was a helpful and sympathetic nurse in the public health department in our county.

Hi, I’m so sorry you’ve dealt with seizures for so long. We are not doctors, so we can not give you medical direction. We can however share experiences of others. We have received many good reports about using frankincense. We would advise spending a little more for a quality product and easing into use, recording feelings and results. I don’t know if you read this article: https://atkinsforseizures.com/aromatherapy-can-help-epilepsy/ you might find it helpful. Another resource you can look into for other peoples experience with aromatherapy is our facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/353691905370250/. Hopefully, you find something that gives you relief!
I feel like I found my twin. I’m also an RN and found my passing out episodes we truly seizures in 2014 – Left Temporal Lobe to be exact. I had these episodes in my teens and finally was diagnosed in 2014. I’ve been on the MAD Diet for three years now…. I have just finished my Keto Coaching Certification through Dr. Berg’s program…. and now I’m flailing… still working full time as a case manager for disabled and elderly…. but my heart is with Keto coaching….how did you take the step after certification to an awesome job teaching this diet… helping others like us?
