In brief: Ketogenic diet

The ketogenic diet helps people with medication resistant seizures by changing the acid-base balance of the bloood and brain tissue.
This in turn will alter the action of nerve cell membranes as as electrolytes move through the membranes in and out of the cells. This will stabilize the cell membranes.
