At 34 years old, Mike Dancer was stressed out, working long hours and living on cereal and milk. For the first 34 years of his life everything was pretty normal and then one day Mike experienced a devastating shock when he was sitting at his desk at work, he fell off his chair in an epileptic seizure and couldn’t remember a thing about it. From that point on his life changed drastically.
Mike was diagnosed with the ‘dis-ease’ Epilepsy and was offered medications that would ‘make him better’. They didn’t work and instead caused terrible side effects to his sleep patterns giving him insomnia and excessive fatigue. His digestive system became compromised and he couldn’t eat a lot of the foods he had grown up with at his parent’s farm, like dairy, bread, yeast and red meat. His endocrine system was strongly effected and his hormones became unbalanced. These side effects were weighing heavy on Mike and at times he couldn’t remember his own name.
Not wanting to spend his life like this Mike somehow managed to wean himself of all of the epilepsy medications (not something he recommends anyone does without medical supervision!) and used his own modified version of the Ketogenic Diet along with intense bodybuilding to regain his health and life. Mike’s advice for anyone diagnosed with Epilepsy: “You’ve got to get up and try, don’t stay down there, get up and try!”
Mike shares his uplifting story and a mountain of wisdom about diet and healing epilepsy in this short interview.

“I spent more of my time worrying about other people, than worrying about myself, in terms of the way they reacted.”
“After the first couple of weeks, which were really quite hard going, I felt miles better.”
“It took about 3 months for me to experience another seizure, please bear in mind I was having 2 or 3 a day.”
“It’s about a balance isn’t it? Looking after yourself before you try and look after anyone else. That way everybody wins.”
“Healing doesn’t work like that at all … It takes time.”
“What I would recommend is actually giving yourself a couple of weeks to rest.”
“Your body can actually look after itself pretty well without the pills and the panic.”
“Are you going to just lie down and take their way of doing things or as I said, get up and try? It’s a hard choice, it’s a very hard choice!”
“I ended up entering a bodybuilding competition myself to show that I hadn’t ballooned and become ridiculously fat and hopefully it suggests that my fitness hasn’t diminished either.”
The Cantin Ketogenic Diet: For Cancer, Type 1 Diabetes and Other Ailments
This is Elaine Cantin’s book. She is the woman who encouraged Mike to share his story about healing epilepsy and his protocol in a future book. Elaine is using her own modified version of the standard Ketogenic Diet to cure her own breast cancer and also is testing the diet for her son’s Type 1 Diabetes, with excellent results in both cases. In the meantime, while you are waiting for Mike’s book to come out, this is the same diet Mike uses for healing Epilepsy: The Cantin Ketogenic Diet for Cancer, Type 1 Diabetes and Other Ailments.
