One in five children with epilepsy has seizures resistant to medications. The ketogenic diet offers a good chance for these children's seizures to be controlled, and helps many children to become completely seizure-free and drug-free. The Epilepsy Diet Treatment is the only book devoted exclusively to the ketogenic diet, a treatment proven to improve seizure control in nearly three-quarters of the children who try it. The Epilepsy Diet Treatment gives you all the facts about the ketogenic diet, plus quotes from parents showing what the experience is really like, and thirty sample recipes. Every doctor and dietician who treats epileptic children, and every parent of an epileptic child, should read this book.

Praise for the Fourth Edition:
"While this is a profoundly rigorous diet, with potentially serious side effects, Freeman, Kossoff, et al. discuss every facet of the process with clarity and professionally restrained optimism. Under proper guidance and with real dedication, this diet may be the path to recovery for children with difficult-to-control seizures." Kirkus Reports
"A 'must'...Very highly recommended as a top alternative to medication for kids with epilepsy." The Midwest Book Review
