Robin heals from epilepsy, seizures, and joint pain on a carnivore diet

Share This Post

Robin is delighted to share her results with fellow carnivores or those who might be “carnivore curious.” This 57-year-old carnivore from San Diego notes that her story is not just about “looking cute in a bikini and losing weight,” although she did lose 35 pounds and 5 inches off her waist. For Robin, those improvements were just “pleasant side effects of going carnivore!”

Overcoming Epilepsy and Seizures

Robin’s motivation to change her diet stemmed from a desire to treat her epilepsy and seizure disorders, conditions she had battled since she was 22 years old. “I have tried multiple ways to control these disorders, using multiple medications or no medication, with varying degrees of success.”

Since 2008, Robin followed a ketogenic diet to help control her seizures, which she notes was partially successful. The ketogenic diet has been used since the 1920s to treat epilepsy and seizure disorders, an approach that has gained more widespread recognition in the last two decades.

“My seizure disorder did partially improve with keto. However, since I’ve gone carnivore, my seizures are completely gone! Not just improved or gotten marginally better, but they are GONE! That, to me, is like having a whole new life. It is amazing!”

Reducing Medication and Improving Metabolism

While hesitant to officially pronounce herself “cured” of her seizure disorder, Robin notes that she is only taking a fifth of the medications she used to take on a daily basis. “Reducing my medications is a major load off my metabolism! The anti-epileptic medications have multiple side effects, including things like osteoporosis that I would rather not get!” The Epilepsy Foundation warns that “people with epilepsy are at higher risk than others for developing osteoporosis and fractures from antiseizure medications.”

Loving the Carnivore Life

While working her way off the last bit of medication, Robin’s health continues to improve. “I feel awesome! I am back to my high school weight and muscularity, and I have no pains in my knee joints, which used to creak!” As with any reduction in medication, Robin works closely with her doctor to monitor her bloodwork and results.

A Pleasant Surprise

Robin also noticed “something strange happened,” as her skin tone and appearance have improved since switching to carnivore. People keep asking her about my skincare routine. “People tell me my skin is just glowing and luminescent! I am not using ANY skincare products at all at the age of 57. I don’t need them.”

Robin tells people she is simply “moisturizing from the inside out.”She believes this is another amazing thing a carnivore diet can do.

Sharing Her Secret to Aging Well

“I hope as many people as possible will try the carnivore diet!” Robin says. “What do you have to lose except your eczema, your IBS, your creaky joints, and all those other things that are wrong that we simply attribute to normal aging? That is NOT normal aging!”

For Robin, “normal aging” means “feeling awesome at 57!” Two years into her journey, Robin hopes to share her success with as many people as possible. “Carnivore on!”
