    Update on Tasya – Seizures, Health, Behavior and Mood

    By Mark Schauss | February 12, 2008

    It’s about time I updated everyone on my soon to be 12-year old daughter, Tasya. As anyone who has read my book knows, she has a rare and as of yet, uncatergorized form of epilepsy that was so severe at one time, we thought that either she would die of it or become severely retarded by the age of 11 or 12. I am very happy to report that despite the doom and gloom that seemed to follow her 3 years ago, she is now doing better now than she has at anytime since her seizures began back in 1999.

    So what have we been doing to help her so much? Well, aside for the diet and avoiding crappy foods, aspartame, MSG and the foods on her LEAP test that cause inflammatory responses, we added two key nutrients from our previous regimen. The first was Glycerophosphocholine also known as GPC and PS Omega Synergy, both from the company I now work for, Crayhon Research. GPC is a great phospholipid that has been shown in numerous clinical trials to be beneficial to people who have suffered strokes as well as restoring memory and concentration in both young and older individuals. Concentration issues were a major problem for Tasya so we asked Dr. Kidd what the dosage should be and his suggestion was 300 mg per day, always in the morning. I can honestly report that her concentration has markedly since starting on a regular regimen of GPC.

    The second nutrient PS Omega Synergy which is a combination of Phosphatidylserine and two Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), has made a truly profound change in her mood, social skills and helped to lower the number of seizures she has to almost nothing. This is the best seizure control that she has had ever since they started in October of 1999. Her classmates have noticed a difference, her teachers have and we have. She is less likely to lose her temper, she has exhibited a wider range of emotions than ever before and has started to get excited about things that normally wouldn’t have moved her off the couch. PS Omega Synergy was the right nutrient at the right time for Tasya.

    Is this the answer for others? I can’t say that honestly. Did it make that much of a difference with Tasya? That and more. We have a  predominantly seizure free child for the first time in years. Even her neurologist had a smile on his face yesterday when Tasya and my wife Hillary visited him. He decided that instead of the every four month visit, we could extend it to every six months.

      Do you know of a Dr here in Canada,beter still Toronto that would order the LEAP MRT test.
      I have tried to contact Carbon BasedCorp with no response.
      Can I go directly to Signet? I’m sure I can get my son’s Epileptologist to facilitate it as long as I provide him with sufficient information.
      I hope you can help my son’s seizures have always been linked to food.
