I recommend this book as a place to get started in learning about epilepsy. Although it is not very scientific, there are no outlandish claims. It presents a realistic picture of epilepsy and a reasonable approach to dealing with it.
On page 9 the author states that she believes that a combination of methods (neuro-feedback, positive thinking, increasing self esteem, yoga, correct nutrition, stress management, spirituality, music and regular exercise) helped her overcome her seizures.
The details are spelled out in chapters 2-9. Chapter 10 is a nice outline summary of her thoughts. It can serve nicely as a guide for people searching for ways to better deal with their epilepsy.
The comments about traditional medical treatment are honest and respectful. The chapter on medication and side effects is unfortunately quite out of date considering that the book is copyright 2004. In fact, none of the newer and very popular medications (felbamate, gabapentin, lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, tiagabine, topiramate and zonisamide) are even mentioned. In spite of that glaring omission, I recommend it as a great place to start.
