That is the message Autumn is proclaiming about the Ketogenic Diet, for one of her 4-H projects this year.
In an effort to create awareness of using the Ketogenic diet as a treatment option for seizures, Autumn has created a brochure that she can hand out to people at our local county fair. She has also distributed the brochures to local doctors in our area to help inform them on this treatment option.
Once the fair is over, we will be moving on to our next project of organizing our website with a few updates. One being a “Read Me First” page to let people know what to expect the first few weeks of the diet. We have found that most people who contact us have the same initial struggles and it would be helpful for them to have a quick “HELP!” reference page. Secondly, we need to put the recipes in an easier-to -find format. We want to do whatever we can to help people know that although the diet may be hard….it is not TOO hard! Because life without seizures is certainly a lot easier that life with them!
