Oily fish and seizure control- a miracle treatment for my daughter

Last time I posted to this forum I was in despair over the seizures my daughter was suffering. My teenage daughter started having complex partial and simple partial seizures last year- she was having many a day. Now- just months later- she is so well I no longer regard her as epileptic and our lives have turned around completely. The miracle cure for her? Oily fish and presumably the omega 3 oils it contains.

We had tried all the usual medications on our daughter- nothing worked. Many of them made her worse. After months of trialling different medications we gave up on the drugs. She was in a very poor physical state by then. The medications took a huge toll on her.

To help get her back to physical health I started giving her fish every day- mostly for the good quality protein. She likes tuna so that was the fish I gave her.

Within a week of starting her on daily tuna I had my daughter back. The seiures had greatly diminished in quantity and the sparkle was back in her eye. Now three months after starting the fish regime she is back living a normal life. It has been like a miracle for us. However if she goes a number of days without a tuna meal the seizures come back. She seems to need to eat tuna every second day to maintain her seizure free status. She doesn't eat a big portion of tuna- about 60 grams seems to be enough.

I have since searched the net to see if other people had found fish to have anti-convulsant properties. I found that there is quite a lot of interest in the place omega 3 oils (the kind found in oily fish) have in treating epilepsy. There is research being done on it. I stumbled on the benefits of oily fish and omega 3 by accident- I wish I had known sooner.

I would highly recommend giving tuna a try. You don't need to alter or stop medications to try it- and there is nothing lost if it doesn't work for you or your child. I haven't tried the fish oil capsules on my daughter so I don't know if they would work as well. I did come across some research on the net that suggests that omega 3 is much better absorbed from fish than from fish oil capsules. Luckily my daughter is happy to eat tuna and is not allergic to it.

Good luck!

I like salmon a lot esp a salmon salad thing that makes great sandwich I think tommrow I will pick up a couple cans of it and give it a try as i know all about tuna and meucry eating tuna frightens me but think the salmon is worth a shot if it helps i'll be grateful and happy if not no lose will report what happens after try it.

For Omega 3 I eat a small portion of oly fish each day, Mackerel, Salmon, Sardines, Pilchards... Any member of the Herring Family, but if Tuna is working then I would stick to that.  I do use fish oil capsules but I perfer to obtain my Omega 3 from oily fish.

unfornly fish oils didnt work at all for me  as matter of fact i got smacked in face sorta speak after attempting the fish deal just once within the hr so i decided to stay away from that plan

Do you just give your daughter the tuna straight or do you add any miracle whip? My son likes tuna but with miracle whip mixed with it. Please email wyboemail@yahoo.com

Thanks for your post! I have pretty good seizure control except for this one muscle spasm on my forehead that is more annoying than anything but adding fish to my diet (which I did after reading this post) really helps it go away.

 

How much Tuna did you give your daughter daily? Was it wild or farm raised? Does anyone know how much Omega 3 capsules should one take to help with seizure control?

 

 

This is the first time I have read this topic and all of the positive replies about Omega 3. I have a Lamictal script to pick up and will pick up a bottle of Omega 3 and give it a try. I like fish, and where I'm living right now, the person I'm living with hates it. I opened a can of Tuna once and he opened all the windows and left them open for a week to "air the place out."

Edit to add:

I live in NW PA, and Perch is the fish of the area and I can always get it fresh from Lake Erie. I like to cook, and can prepare it any way I prefer. I like Perch breaded and deep fried.      

REally Omega 3 capsules are too good for health. Omega 3 Capsule  helps to reduces symptoms like inflammation, stiff and Joint Inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis patients. - http://www.shreyomega.com/Omega-3-Capsule.php

After reading your post, I have decided to give the tuna a try. I like tuna, well really all fish, but canned tuna would be more conveniant on a daily basis. I know Lisa (angel_its) has repeatedly told us the good of omega3 regarding seizures.
You said oily fish...does that mean that the tuna has to be packed in oil or can it be packed in water? The tuna packed in water still has oiliness to it but I want to be sure to use the same as you used.

I am so glad to hear of the improvement regarding your daughter..it is truly wonderful! Smiles to you both!

Hi Spiz,

My daughter eats any brand of tuna- she likes the canned/pouched flavoured tuna best. I have read that tuna canned in oil has less omega 3 because the omega 3 in the fish dissolves in the oil which is then lost when the tuna is drained. According to what I have read albacore tuna has the most omega 3 but the tuna we buy seems to be yellowfin. Also albacore has more mercury.

Oily fish is just the label for fish with a high natural oil content - sorry about any confusion!- oily fish include tuna, salmon and sardines. The experts say that canned pink salmon has a much higher level of omega 3 than canned tuna- may be well worth a try if you like salmon- my daughter doesn't so I have no experience with salmon.

All the very best- I so hope you get some benefit from the fish and omega 3! I would recommend eating as much fish as you can- my daughter was eating a generous portion of tuna every day for weeks. Also I forgot to mention that my daughter experienced a useful lift in her mood when she started on the tuna- it seems to have some antidepressant properties as well.

My son likes tuna but mixed with miracle whip. Does your daughter eat it straight? Please email me wyboemail@yahoo.com

Thank you! I am going to start right away. And thank you Lisa for the added info on Omega3. I love salmon as well. Not everyday but enough to alternate once in a while with it. Thanks again!

I have been taking omega three for years now. I have got rid of nine seizures and 234 auras a month.
Tuna can have mercury in it so you have to be careful how much you use.
But omega is in canola oil, salmon and different fish, walnuts, green leafy vegetables. I eat alot of different nuts.
I take flax seeds and grind a small amount in a smoothie in the morning. Flax and fish oil I have had the same results.
You can take the oils and mix with yogurt or cottage cheese.

I use coconut oil too a good fat. We need fat for the brain. And it sounds like your daughter needs fat, just as I do.

Check out my group I keep info about omega and natural approaches and medical approaches too in my group.

You are absolutely right Lisa. The most recent research showed that fatty acid preparation (one that includes both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids) was as effective as carbamazepine in a chemical convulsant model, and the fatty acids had fewer negative behavioral effects.

just a quick mail to let everyone know - I suffered a grand mal nocturnal seizure last week fer the first time in about 6 years, and had been suffering 3 or 4 petit mal staring seizures a day for the past while - after reading this thread i started taking omega 3 capsules every morning and a tin of sardines for lunch, the petit mal staring seizures have stopped completly, nothing for 5 days now since i started doing this. I am not on meds and have an eeg scheduled for friday morning because of the grand mal i suffered, the results of this will be passed onto a neuroligist and he will make a decision after that but i now feel there maybe no point in this - not ruling it out altogether but i would like to give the omega 3 option a go and see what happens - only for this thread i would never have known and would like to thank jennifer 65 for opening my eyes to this option. I was on meds as a kid for my petit mal and didnt like the side affects so i much prefer this option - I'm not saying its a miracle cure or that it will work for everyone but it has worked for me so far fingures crossed - I mean to go from 3 or 4 a day to none and teh only change in my diet was to add omega 3 supplements and a tin of sardines and nothing else - something has to be said for this - does anyone know if any real properly funded reseaerch has been done into this - if not it need to be - like all the typical meds a different type works for different people but if the omega 3 option works for 1 or 2 people only then it should be seen as a success - heres hoping that it can help more, so many more people than 1 or 2 - - - tell everyone you know to give it a go - it cant hurt and even if it doesnt work for u or others u know omega 3's are good for u anyway

Hi,

 I have been reading the info on omega 3 and epilepsy with great interest.  My son (20 years) suffers absences and is on medication.  He has had a couple of major seizures after drinking alcohol, so he's now knows not to do that.  I have suggested that he takes omega 3 capsules, but am unsure of the dosage and there are so many different brands with different quantities.  Does anyone have any idea of the kind og dosage he should take?   Can you overdose on this stuff.   We live in the UK.  I would be interested to hear from anyone with any information.

 

Many thanks

Jane

Hi please can you tell me which omega 3 capsules are you using, or can any advise wihich is the best to take, it would be greatly appeciated.

thankyou Diane

I have been taking Omega 3 Cod Liver Oil Capsules for the past three months because I was hearing so much on the television that it is an essential brain food, lowers high chlorestolol and also helps other medical ailments. I also make sure that my diet consists of fresh tuna steaks, salmon and vegetables. I have noticed that it has dramatically helped my aching joints which I don't get anymore and I haven't had anymore seizures yet since the Christmas period. Since taking these oils my appetite for sugary foods has nearly disappeared which is now helping me lose weight (so far 28lbs).

Maybe it is the Omega 3 Cod Liver Oils helping!!!

Actually there have been a few studies looking at the effect of omega fatty acids on seizure control. Here is a link to one of the articles on epilepsy.com:

Thank you for the link Jennamay. Unfortunately, I have had seizures over the past four days. So I am unsure with the connection now between Cod Liver Oil Capsules helping Epilepsy. It has definatly helped with my aching joints though and sugar cravings.

Hi Jennifer!
My name is Sandy and my daughter Zoe has E. Zoe is 14. She was 12 1/2 when she started seizs. She started meds when she was 2 months into seizs. The meds never really controled her E. She was having them more and more often. She was having one per month and then one per week. She is a clever kid and her school work started to suffer. She has beautiful long thick strawberry blonde hair which started to fall out with the meds and on top of that, she started to put on a little bit of weight. Hard enough for any person but twice as hard when your a teenager! Her meds wern't really doing their job . Then a few months ago Zoe had her first seizure at school! I bought her home to rest and she had another! The ambulance was called and after hours at the hospital, she was sent home at 12:30am. She had her 3rd seiz waiting for her Dad to bring the car around to pick her up!! Long story cut short, we decided there must be something else we could do. That was when we got Zoe to see a naturopath. It was about 11 or so weeks ago that I spotted your comment and read it out to Zoe and her Dad. We all agreed it was a great idea to try something that would not harm her but at the same time be great brain food for her. It would help her with her studies too! Well the next day I got her the best ones in the health food store! On her next visit to the naturopath, I told her about your comment and that we had started Zoe on the omega-3 capsules. She couldn't have been more thrilled! Well I just wanted to thankyou for your input because Zoe has been on the omega-3 for 10 weeks now and she hasn't had a seizure for 10 WEEKS!!!! What a difference!! Along with the help of her naturopath and the omega-3's, Zoe is much brighter and happier! The whites of her eyes is so white it's amazing!! She feels better and not having a seiz for 10 weeks has made her feel more alive than ever!! It's such a big THANKYOU to people like you who put your opinions out there as a sounding board to other people who can try or not try different things. I was so taken with how your own daughter felt that I wanted to go out that very night I read your story and buy the omega-3's. (Only the shope were closed!!) I feel like I have my daughter back, we don't think in the negative anymore and instead of counting how many seizs she has had we are COUNTING HOW MANY WEEKS SINCE SHE HASN'T HAD ONE! I would have posted a reply comment to you earlier, but we wanted to wait and see how she would go so we report on her progress. Again thankyou for your comment and story. I hope your daughter is going really, really well and is still seiz free! I feel like we have our lifes back on track a bit and hope (fingers crossed) that Zoe just gets better and stronger and we are going to keep her omega-3's going forever! Good luck with everything! By the way, we live in Australia, so your help came a long way!! Best wishes, Sandy and Zoe!!

Concerned Mom

Hi, I just wanted to comment on the threads about Omega 3. I have been giving the capsules to my son for about four years now and have noticed an improvement in his seizures (he has them every day). He is also diabetic, so the Omega 3 brought down his triglycerides and cholesterol as well. He can't take many of the long-acting insulins because they cause low blood sugar, which induces seizures. So while he isn't seizure-free, his situation improved greatly from the omega 3.

I also work with a homeopath, who gave us a remedy called "Cuprum Metallicum." For almost two years, I gave him one dose before bed and he was virtually seizure-free. This was after medications had failed and he had had a corpus callosotomy. Now we're evaluating the VNS, although it has turned into a lot of red tape.

Andrew's problem is that he might respond favorably to a treatment initially, but after a certain amount of time the seizures become bad again. He was hospitalized last month for a few days for observation after an entire night of partial seizures, and he hadn't been in the hospital for seizures for 15 years. We're not sure what occurred to set off the string of seizures, and it was unlike anything I had ever seen. He is 27.5 years old and I have cared for him his whole life.

I still believe in natural remedies and use many of them myself. I found probiotics very helpful for Andrew for weight loss and energy level (good for everyone!) as well as a boost for his immune system. He didn't catch a cold all winter, which of course reduced his seizures.

I've also tried acupuncture, which helped initially and then didn't seem to work, but at the time, he was taking a long-acting insulin which was sparking many of the seizures. Once we stopped that, his seizures dropped down to 2 small ones a day, which is the best it's been for years.

Hi ive been reading this site over and over, searching for answers, I have a 7 yrs old daugther who during the eveing time is having a few staring spells, she is a bright girl and so far has not been noticed or affected her school work. We have recently been for an EEG and during the hyperventilation she did have a breif staring spell, Im so worrired that when the results come back they might say it is poss abesent seizures, I do not want to give her drugs after reading about them, so ive been researching my self, I too have looked on a website for natural remedies, and come accross a product called Epi - Still which contains cuprum mattalicum, I will try anything once, and if omega 3 oil works then it has to be a start. just wondered ir there was any one out there with any more thoughts

from a very worried mum.

 

Hi there, does giving the amount of tuna matter according to age or it any quantity can be given? My son is three years old what amount shold i give him?
Id like o give it a try and id appreciate if u can give me an idea
thanx

Because a childs brain is still developing they should avoid different fish.

I also take flax oil which helped with my seizures just as fish oil did. Omegs three is also in things like Almonds, walnuts, seeds, eggs,..

Protecting Your Heart With Fish Oil

Nutrients found in fish such as tuna may have beneficial effects on
the heart's electrical system, preventing potentially life-
threatening heart rhythm disorders.

Baked or Broiled, Not Fried

A new study analyzed electrocardiogram information from more than
5,000 adults. Those who ate more baked or broiled fish had healthier
heart rhythms. Fried fish did not offer the same benefits,
suggesting that the omega-3 fats found in baked and broiled fish
were the cause.

Direct Effect on the Circuitry

Fish intake has previously been connected with a reduced of
irregular heart beats. Animal studies suggest that fish oil directly
affects the heart's electrical circuitry.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology July 12, 2006

Yahoo News July 25, 2006

Dr. Mercola's Comment:

It is encouraging to find additional confirmation of the benefits
of omega-3 fats in respected peer reviewed cardiology journals. The
health "experts" are really starting to full appreciate the
importance of this essential nutrient in your health. It is probably
the single most important missing nutrient in the American diet
today.

However it is important to have a complete picture of omega-3 fats
to effectively implement and benefit long-term from these important
findings. Most experts have yet to understand the significance of
the toxic contamination of many omega-3 sources with mercury and
toxins like PCBs.

They are still recommending that patients should eat fish,
particularly tuna, to get them. Fish would be ideal source of omega-
3s ... if they weren't contaminated with mercury. As it is, they are
best avoided.

Omega-3s can do wonderful things for your health, from helping you
beat prostate cancer to improving your mental health. Over 2,000
scientific studies have demonstrated the wide range of problems
associated with omega-3 deficiencies, including:

Depression
Memory Problems
Weight Gain
Cancer
Heart Disease
Allergies
Arthritis
Diabetes
Omega-3s are also absolutely necessary for proper brain function.
The human brain is more than 60 percent structural fat, just as your
muscles are made of protein and your bones are made of calcium. But
it's not just any fat that our brains are made of. It has to be
certain types of fats.

Receptors for certain neurotransmitters in your brain are normally
made from an omega-3 fat called DHA. If you don't have much DHA in
your blood, your body may use man-made trans-fat molecules as a
construction material instead.

But trans-fats are shaped differently than DHA, so the receptors
become deformed and don't work very well. This can lead to problems
like depression and problems concentrating, especially in children
whose brains is still developing.

While you should certainly consume plant based omega-3 fats that
have ALA, you simply can not rely on them for your body to produce
enough healthy DHA. On the other hand you should also avoid DHA only
products as your body needs all omega-3 fats, ALA, EPA and DHA. If
you overload on anyone of them you can run into problems.

There are a number of high quality fish oils that will work just
fine for many and you are likely to find some in your local health
food store. But new research suggests that one of the best sources
of omega-3 fats maybe krill oil.

Krill oil is not only mercury-free and full of the beneficial omega-
3s, but in addition:

Krill oil is more stable than fish oil
Krill are at the bottom of the food chain and have virtually no time
to grow and acquire toxic heavy metals
The omega-3 fats in krill oil have a phosphate attached, which
allows it to work far more effectively in your brain
They are packed with cancer-preventing antioxidants as well
Just as in fish oil, you will want to make sure you are getting a
high quality brand. You can review my article high quality krill oil
for more specifics. If you are unable to find a good brand in your
local health food store we stock some in our store for your
convenience.

I am fascinated by the discussions of the benefit of Omega 3 oils, as I am hoping to manage my sons epilepsy without phamaceuticals.

I believe that there may be some coincidental"-ness" to this story, but...

About 1 1/2 years ago a friend recommended an Omega3 liquid, the studies were so impressive I started adding Omega3 to my sons yoghurt, and faithfully did so for 18 months of so. (He is 6.) In April (this year) we had a death in the family which meant going "home" to Pennsylvania for 5 weeks. We couldn't get our normal Omega3, and so we just stopped using it while away. We returned to our home away from home (England), but I struggled to get back into a routine, and Omega3 wasn't high on my list of priorities.

Several weeks after returning from the US my son had his first (known) seizure. Three days later he had his second (and last known). His seizures occurred in his sleep, (and immediately upon falling asleep). He is completely unaware during and after, that the seizure occurred. An EEG and MRI confirmed epilepsy.

Interestingly, not long after his two episodes I started the Omega3 again. Who knows whether there is a true correlation, but I watch him closely as he falls asleep, and stay with him for 10 to 15 minutes each night, anxiously awaiting another seizure. None to date.

I am cautiously optimistic that there is a correlation ... and probably won't ever stop the Omega3 (just in case), but I do have a few questions for anyone who can shed light ...

The Omega3 oil we use also contains a large percentage of Evening Primrose Oil. I have read that EPO should be avoided by epileptics. Is my suspension unusual to contain EPO??? Can others shed insight into the correlation between seizures and EPO??

Also, I am a bit concerned about the mercury levels in fresh fish?? We LOVE fish, and eat a fair bit of sushi and poached fish, but am concerned about eating too much because of the mercury issue.

One last question ... we definately want to prevent/limit seizures, and if Omega3 can do that YAHOO, YIPEE etc., but what impact does it have on the "pinging" on the brain? Do you know whether the brain activity remains the same, but the manifestation in seizures is different???

Any thoughts are SO greatly appreciated. AND MANY THANKS to all who have written about the correlation.

Susan

Thank you for your post! My son has just been diagnoised with E and even on meds he is still having seizures every two to three weeks. This is very scary for us and we are all on edge not knowing when his next one will be or if he will be injured from falling (he has grand mals) he's tall so he really has hurt himself. I will try anything to stop his seizures, I will try the fish oil asap. We usually eat fish once a week, mostly salmon, but I will add it to our dinner menu several times a week.

Question: Can we add the fish oil (omega 3) AND still be safe eating fish several times a week?

Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

 

I have been eating DHA supplemented foods. I  had originally got this food for my infant daughter and when she's finished with this food I had ate what was left. Since then I have noticed a change in my seizure activity. I am still on my meds but I was late for work the other day, left without taking my meds and after 10 hours didn't even feel a seizure "coming on". DO NOT stop taking your meds, but seriously look more into this. It might not be any big deal to try the DHA- fortified yogurt that's marketed for infants and kids. There's blueberry/ pomegrante juice by Minute Maid, that's fortified with DHA. It might not be a cure for E but if it might help with seizure-control what do you got to lose by trying it. Good Luck!

Please watch it with the fish especially tuna and swordfish. The mercury levels are known to be high and while you may be helping the seizures you may be doing harm with the mercury. There are Omega-3 products that don't have a fishy taste and have been purified to remove the mercury. You may want to Google what a safe amount of tuna is per week. I think some every day may go over the limit for an adult.

Nancy R

Would flax seed oil work or just the fish oil?

I just wanted to add my unscientific observation. Since reading these comments yesterday I went our and bought some Omega3 tablets. After just 1 day here is what I noticed:
1) The stomach gas and cramping I usually get after taking my Trileptal has been reduced to the point that is almost eliminated.
2) My benign prostate pain which I have had for over 20 years has also been reduced -- which may be a result of less pressure on the prostate from a lowering of stomach gas.
These two affects have also helped me to feel less stressed out, more relaxed and a little more optimitic. Maybe I am over reacting but I will continue taking 4grams a day for a while and see how it works. If it was not for this website and this discussion I would not even be aware of Omega3.

This is the answers for some of the questions that were asked in this segment.

I feel that since I have been taking fish/flax that my thinking is much more clearer. But I am still taking my meds and I would not go off of them either.

I have started with fish and moved to just flax and I had the same results from both. I now am doing both.

I have heard someone tell me they got heartburn from it and had to stop.

take care
Lisa
You can also use 3 oz. of melted unsweetened chocolate, cooled, to the Wilton Buttercream Icing. So that would be:

1 lb confectioners sugar
1 cup shortening
1 T meringue powder
1 t vanilla
2 T water
3 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate

OOPS, Sorry about that, :(

that was suppose to be this web site not a recipe. OOPS!!

Hi everyone.

I was researching medical studdies to show a friend the affects of O3s. Her teenage grandson was just diagnosed.
This link came up, too, so I decided to take a look.

I know the O3s work but needed "medical" back up to prove it to her.lol

In reading this thread I noticed the contamination factor brought up, and it's a good point. That is why I decided to respond.

I am not trying t sell anyone anything but wanted you to know there is a great "PURE" O3 that can be found. This is the same product I am trying to get her to try for her grandson. I am going to put my 3 yr old grandson on it as well. I know a number of epilepsy sufferers that have had fantastic results. And there is no worry of mercury or any other contaminent. And this isn't an OTC item that is touted to be what it is not.

Anyway, if anyone is interested I would be glad to discuss it, and point you in that dirrection.

Best to you all,
Sandahl
