A young woman is described who reacts to beef with grand mal seizures. The authors report a "double-blind placebo-controlled" test using capsules of beef and chicken (placebo). "This patient has had only one seizure in the past 6 months on a regimen stressing dietary avoidance of specific food allergens and without anticonvulsant medication. In the 6 months prior to this program, she had 31 seizures despite therapeutic doses of anticonvulsant medication." Doctors Crayton and Stone of NOHA’s Professional Advisory Board are the senior authors of this article, which appeared in Clinical Electroencephalography, 1981, Vol. 12, no. 4, pp. 192-198.
