Today I want to share some important information for those of you who experience seizures.

Common triggers of seizures:
• Fever
• Head injury
• Brain infection
• Choking
• Alcohol
• Drug withdrawal
• Extremely low blood sugar
• Drugs
• Toxins
• Stress
• High blood pressure

Data shows that keto is effective in eliminating seizures by a factor of 50 to 70 percent. But it's important to be on the healthy version of the ketogenic diet. The keto diet for epilepsy also includes more fat than protein.

Ketones are a byproduct of fat. Fat and ketones are the primary fuel source that our bodies should run on—not glucose. It's also the preferred fuel source of the brain.

Top potential benefits of ketones for seizures:
• They have anticonvulsant properties
• They stabilize the excitability of the neurons
• They modulate neurotransmitters
• They support the brain, including the hippocampus
• They increase the hippocampus's mitochondrial biogenesis
• They protect the brain and neurons against oxidative stress
• They increase the ATP in the neurons to allow them to function better

In my opinion, one of the best natural alternative options for seizures is to get on the Healthy Keto® diet.

Natural ways to potentially help prevent seizures:
1. Get on the Healthy Keto diet
2. Start intermittent fasting
3. Take ketones
4. Consume foods higher in fat with moderate protein
5. Consume cod liver oil
6. Consume nutritional yeast
7. Exercise

  1. Good Morning , Dr.Berg 🌈
    Thank you so much for Saving people lives around the World !
    Have a good day, God bless you !

  2. Dr Berg, thank you. Would be extremely grateful if you could discuss ketogenic diet for vegans, trying to stop eating food from animal sources for ethical reasons but would still like the benefits of keto. Thank you 🙏

    • Remember that vegan foods do almost NOT contain the amino acids taurine, creatine, , carnitine, and other amino acids….. and remember to inntake at least 500 mg choline daily by foods or supplements…… I was vegan for 5 years and suffered psychosis because my brain was lacking the amino acid taurine…….

  3. I had my last and only seizure 9 years ago. I am still on meds and will hopefully get rid of epilepsy this year. My only first seizure was bad enough to make me forget the name of two of the subjects that I was studying. (edit – It has also to do with the intervention of Jinns) My reports came normal after Imam recited Quranic verses on me. I stopped taking medicines and again I experienced some abnormalities so I started taking medicines again. These jinns have ways of causing trouble in ways humans can never think of).

    • If you really believe epilepsy is tide in with jinns, you are saddle mistaking and I advise you to stay on your meds

    • @Rising Kingdom of course but if racial people like me accept that we are mere mortal and very grounded towards science then should you be anxious?????🤣

    • @Rising Kingdom racial hindu like me is saying you belong to higher realm.
      Is it problem for you?????
      Racial hindu “agreed” with you is not digestible to you??????

  4. Thank you for this vid Dr Berg. Is this as affective for someone who’s epilepsy is caused by a brain tumor? I had 90% of my left temporal lobe removed over 5 years ago because of what was thought to be an Oligodendroglioma. I was told after the op that it was…???? I’m sure you understand that. I’m in my late 50’s and have started low carb, I’ve lost weight and feel heaps better than I did at Christmas time. Thanks again for your enthusiasm to help….. YOU MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE!!!!!

  5. Cured my dog seizures by giving him extra virgin coconut oil. For real, he’s still on bromide but that didn’t help really. Stumbled upon this as tried giving him coconut oil for allergies and realized seizures stopped. Then ran out and wasn’t working for allergies and his seizures came back. Started giving him it again and seizures stopped. Been 2 years now. Also, he’s on a strict diet. Kibble is zignature low ingredient salmon and I give him grass fed meat. This really helped with allergies. Also give him our fish oil that my wife and I take. It’s very powerful anti inflammatory great for joints. Really works.

    • @Jen D 100 pound Lab, give him a tablespoon in am and at night. Dunno, just worked. There’s info out there that it helps humans.

    • MCT oil is made from Coconuts. There’s about 7% MCT in coconut oil. MCTs bypass the digestion and go straight to the liver where they are converted directly to ketones. It’s an easy way to get your ketones up when just adapting to the Ketogenic diet/lifestyle. Remember that Dog’s natural food source is meat based. Feed your cats and dogs lots of raw meat and fat, never ever grain based “pet food”.

  6. 5 stars Eric, keep ’em coming!! 😄

    The heart, after 72 hours of being in a fasted state, is burning 75% ketones, little known fact! If the body is providing even a small amount of ketones, the brain and heart will hog it. As fasting man continues further into the fast, the brain will consume 72% and as high as 85% ketones depending on the health and condition of the mitochondria. All of our muscles can run on up to 100% ketones, including the heart. Kidneys, in the high 70’s, but basically the same consumption as the brain. The rest I’m not sure of. Getting these numbers from George Cahill Jr., by the way.

    Excellent video, Eric 😉

    • @Lawdog Wales Reset’s your hormones, lowers insulin resistance, reverses pre diabetes and puts you on the path to reversing diabetes and a long host of non communicable diseases, allows the body to heal in the catabolic phase breaking down old, damaged, sentient cells and scarring that is taking up space and not contributing, to make room for new growth, new stem cells.

      What’s not to like? 😀

  7. My daughter’s dog started getting seizures at the age of 2 years old and she immediately put him on a grain free kibble and high fat meat and veggie cookup diet. So this keto diet works in dogs as well.

    • I have been giving my dog only free pasture whole chicken meat and broth, papaya, a few vegetables, and flax seed oil. She’s a 15 years old Scottish terrier and hasn’t had a seizure yet. The broth is like a gel, since I cook the chicken whole and the gelatin from the bones is also consumed. She hasn’t had commercial dry dog food in 5-7 years.

    • @Verohb79 I’ve always had my doubts about kibble. There are some shockers out there. My 14 year old corgi x German Sheppard is starting to turn her nose up to kibble now so I’m going to give your recipe a go. She literally picks out the fresh meat and veggies and leaves the kibble. Can you tell me which veggies you use?

    • When I was a 10-18yrs somewhere in the African savana, my parents gave us meat and water as lunch for school, I remember we boiled meat for dogs bcause we needed them for protecting our herds of cattle and goats.

  8. Always love when Dr. Berg reminds us that the human body was designed. Something designs requires a Designer. Dr. Berg and our Designer saved me from asthma, sinusitis, nose polyps and COPD. My Designer guide me to Dr. Berg through prayer. Dr Berg gave me the tools and diets necessary to heal myself.

  9. Acidosis is a big one to address! When I fast, I juice (with no coffee!) to avoid the degrees of acidosis that come with trying to fast on straight water. When I’m in Ketosis I’ll try to stay in Ketosis as long as I can on a diet, so veggies are on the menu. We can do straight water when we long fast, but there ‘s more danger to it both on and coming off a fast specific to minerals (potassium, salt). The safest way by far to fast is juicing.

    As for the meat advice Eric, if you are reading this, caution readers about the added sugars in most meats. Added sugars are in 85 to 90% of the meats, all the hot dogs and sausages, and cold cuts, hams, bacon, it’s in most meats. I think the jury is still out on the body preferring to be in Ketosis the majority of the time, as well?

    We may be looking at periodical long fasting to get down to normal weight, then maintaining Ketosis for deep autophagy as well as intermittent fasting to keep our bodies good at switching fuels (keep our mitochondria fusion at peak levels with both fuels) and then a normal weight maintenance diet from there with occasional long fasts to kick start the cycle but we simply cannot ignore the Catabolic phase. The North American diet is high processed, high carb and highly available, keeping everyone stuck in the anabolic phase. Of course, the Catabolic phase is detox, break down and repair and we aren’t allowing our bodies to do it.

    I hope if you read this Eric, that you do a video on the Anabolic/Catabolic phases of metabolism & the fuels they run on to drill it home.

  10. What the hell is going on with you Dr. You produce content exactly when I need it. The last few videos were exactly what I needed! I was diagnosed with epilepsy but I think I’ve controlled it naturally

  11. Dr. Berg, You are amazing!!! Thank you so much for your ongoing teaching and guidance. I continually learn soooo much from you and incorporate what I learn. Love you! 😇

  12. Thank you, I didn’t watch the last few days, but you are brilliant, thousands thanks. I will catch on to the missed out videos during the next week. I am trying to understand trauma, and things around, so this is what kept me busy the last few days. Stuff like Vitamin A, D and blood brain buries, still trying to understand my issue with the vaccine, the aluminium in the vaccine plus the citrus acid as example( it could have ended up in my brain). I am trying to understand trauma and acidity, histamine shock, and even the Asian shape of eyes( the wind and the sun protection. sun also a histamine issue). Also Physic of vitamin A plus the water( our body is made of) further histidin. Ok. I am sorry not watching I will catch I am missing out, you are very smart. Thank you.

  13. I used to have a 3 to 9 seizures a day after a very traumatic accident. I had my liver, kidney and intestines ripped out of my body. I flatline for over an hour and a half I was in a two month coma I’ve had over 20 surgeries, two strokes and over 400 seizures, I haven’t had a seizure in over four years. September will be five years and everything you mentioned on his list for all things that I practiced naturally. at first they had me on medication my hair started falling out I became depressed with very dark thoughts started peeing blood and the list goes on. I luckily quit those medication’s about 22 months ago, and I am still seizure free for years and going strong stress management, especially with the key to my cure. Thank you so much for everything you share the content you provide all the knowledge keep it coming please I listen every day. 🙏🏼

    • ‘they had me on medication my hair started falling out’ One of the biggest reasons I changed things around..I overworked myself, barely slept and pounded day I just collapsed at work and banged my head on concrete..recovered but seizure after seizure after that.. Lot less stress, Proper sleep, Nutrition, Vitamins, Meditation and exercise changed that for me..going 1 yr strong no problems..You sound like you been through hell, Glad you’re OK. take care. We get 1 life.

  14. Thanks to ur educating the world about keto, my 6 year old grandson, who has a drug resistant type of epilepsy, was able to go seizure free for almost a year with keto and lions mane mushrooms. He has been on strick keto for almost 4 years now.

  15. I started having seizures after being hit by a car. I was put on anti-seizure medicine and my entire personality changed into a flaming unrepentant jerk. I weaned myself off of it, and now I shout from the rooftops for people to avoid prescriptions. Every time there’s a shooting I want to know what prescriptions they were on. Those warnings are for real. Do everything you can to get off your prescriptions. In my opinion

  16. This is great info for all especially people like me who suffer from petit mal seizures.I thank you so so much Dr.Berg been fasting doing OMAD for over two weeks love this new way of life feel so so good at 62.

    • Welcome to the club!!! 7 months for me now and thought I was listening to my body before having type 2 diabetes. All the while getting bad advice from the medical community. Increase electrolytes at the first signs of dizziness when standing up. My salt intake went up to but blood tests show normal so…

  17. I’ve had seizures for 47 years , I was on seizure medication for 41 years with breakthrough seizures daily , I took my health into my own hands and started taking CBD oil (medical grade) , my Dr supervised titrating off my seizure drug , since 2017 I have had zero seizures 🙏🏻

    • Excellent. We hope that you’ll be able to help a lot of patients. Stay safe and healthy.
