The most suitable foods to support your health as you manage Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological irregularity in which a person loses mindfulness due to extreme electric secretion of cerebral neurons. Epileptic outbreaks can last from several seconds to some minutes. 

 

While there are no particular foods to consume or dodge if you have epilepsy, it's crucial to maintain your health while you control the condition by consuming a well-balanced diet. 

 

A balanced diet from various food combinations supports the body and brain to function, serving us to stay strong and healthy. This may help lessen the jeopardy of seizures for some people with epilepsy. Making your own meals gives more power over what you consume, and some things can help make preparing food safer and more reliable if you have illnesses. There are no specific foods that usually trigger illnesses, as epilepsy is very individual.

 

A well-balanced diet is commonly made up of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, and drinking loads of fluids. Investigation continues into what makes a healthy diet, and dietary guidelines are also impacted by where we live, our well-being needs, and our lifestyle.

 

Ayushakti brings you the most suitable foods to support your health as you manage Epilepsy:

 

Unrefined Carbohydrates

Unrefined Carbohydrates

Unrefined carbs provide strength and energy and are obtained in foods such as potatoes, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, and brown rice. These wholegrain variants of the food items provide additional vitamins, minerals, and fiber (which benefits to eliminate waste from the body).

 

Lean Protein

 Lean Protein

Proteins strengthen and support our tissues, enzymes, muscles, hormones, RBC (red blood cells), and immune system. Protein is in dairy foods such as milk and cheese, and also in red meat, fish, poultry, tofu, beans, lentils, unsalted nuts and seeds, and eggs.

 

Healthy Fat

 Healthy Fat

Fats can be found in vegetable oils, avocados, oily fish, nuts and nut butter, coconuts, eggs, and seeds. Fats support us to incorporate nutrients including some essential vitamins and keep us warm. They further keep our cells strong and give us strength.

 

Fluids

Fluids

Drinking water and a lot of fluids benefits us to function and focus and lessens the hazard of illnesses triggered by dehydration.

 

Vegetables and Fruits

Vegetables and Fruits

Vegetables and fruit of multiple colors render needed vitamins and minerals. They also help guard us against infection, destruction to our cells, and viruses. Currently, it is advised that we strive to eat at least 5 servings of vegetables or fruit per day (one serving is approximately a handful).

 

Foods to restrict or avoid with Epilepsy:

  • Saturated and trans fats like butter, processed foods like packaged cakes, cookies, or frozen pizza.
  • Caffeine like coffee, tea, and drinks with caffeine.
  • Food additives like soda, candies, canned foods, jams, and jellies.
  • Bread and pasta.
