I have epilepsy, and I enjoy my food, being a qualified chef. I was told my cholesterol was too high, so was prescribed medication for this condition. I then began to suffer from muscle weakness, which I was prescribed physiotherapy treatment, I became breathless, so had to exercise more, which did not help with my two new other conditions. Plus I still gained weight, my blood pressure also increased. I even started having nightmares, less sleep?? I suggested to my GP that I should come off these 'pills', which I really thought he would say 'No!', but he threw my medication into his bin then asked "Anything else?" I was able to move around easier, more exercise a combination of coming off these things plus no muscle pain. Blood pressure improved, cholesterol dramatically decreased. Even the relief of this has 'calmed' myself down and I have had less seizures. Oh, and no more nightmares!
