With Leafy sometimes having as many as 60 fits per day, her parents tried giving her prescription medication to no avail. They moved from their home in England to Perth, Australia in hopes that the warmer weather would help her condition; but that did not work either.
Finally, after doing some online research, Claire and Justin found some studies claiming that high-fat and low-carb diets can prevent the body from triggering epileptic fits. The Lius decided to give it a shot and start incorporating foods with higher fat content – such as avocados – into their daughter’s diet
Leafy is now 5 years old and she has eaten roughly 3,000 avocados over the course of her life, amounting to about 2 per day – and she now only suffers through about 4 seizures per year.
