    Hi Maria, Im just looking online for a friend who is struggling with epilepsy despite being medicated. I thought as there has been some evidence of the Keto diet or a modified version of it being beneficial for epilepsy, it may be worth him seeing someone for advice. Have you got any experience of Low carb, high fat diets helping that condition? Thanks

    So which carbs are good?
    Should I avoid grains still or should I eat rice, oats etc?
    I started with GAPS diet which is recommended for Pyroluria. But I also have issues with my adrenals and thyroid.
    I am eating lots of fruits, beets and carrots. So I suppose I get my carbs, but often I feel like it’s not enough. I don’t know if that’s my sugar craving screaming or just my body craving more carbs.
    I used to eat lots of brown rice and buckwheat before but stopped 6 months ago when I started GAPS diet.

      Hi Emelie, it’s not possible for me to make personal recommendations without reviewing the full health picture. The amount and type of carbs has to be personalised to your health goals and gut health,

    What about intermittent fasting?
    Can you explain more about the dairy / kefir weight gain. You didn’t necessarily explain why it was a problem.
    Thank you.

    • Maria says:

      intermittent fasting needs to be applied very individually depending on the person’s adrenal health. Dairy slows the metabolic rate due to high saturated fat content which means it will slow thyroid function. This can be determined by doing a hair mineral analysis.
