Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain sometimes signal abnormally. Neurons normally generate electrochemical impulses that act on other neurons, glands, and muscles to produce human thoughts, feelings, and actions. In epilepsy, the normal pattern of neuronal activity becomes disturbed, causing strange sensations, emotions, and behavior, or sometimes convulsions, muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. During a seizure, neurons may fire as many as 500 times a second, much faster than normal. In some people, this happens only occasionally; for others, it may happen up to hundreds of times a day.
It should be noted that Omega-3s – totally necessary for counteracting inflammation – are also found in high amounts in these vegetarian sources: chia seeds and flax seed.
From my own experience, I know that cod liver oil can be rough on a struggling liver even though it helps the liver (and brain, nervous system, heart – pretty much everything!). So, you can use the vegetarian versions which offer a lot, or grassfed butter. Gentle detoxing and the use of whey protein (Standard Protocol – mix in orange juice, it tastes awful but really helps) can coax the liver into accepting fish oils later if that is a problem.
Flax oil becomes rancid super quick! It is so beneficial to grind your seeds either in a separate mini coffee grinder or the grinder blade that comes with a Nutribullet.
Low doses might be helpful in epilepsy that …
The relative efficacy of low-dose fish oil compared to high-dose fish oil has also been reported in clinical trials of patients with major depressive disorder. In these studies, subjects experienced significant improvements in mood following supplementation with low doses of omega-3 fatty acids, but no improvement with higher doses.
