Screenshot (4)At least 30% of the population that experiences seizures do not respond to medications or alternative practices. I know, my son was one of them. He responded to the functional approach to health and I’m confident you can too.

My mission is to offer help for seizures: diet, nutrition and biochemical interventions to promote healing in adults or children so that they can live more fully functional lives.

Many of my clients come to me experiencing seizures, of all types, and want them to stop. The problem is, no one has taken the time to identify their underlying nutritional deficiencies, how the detoxification pathways are performing, the health of the digestive system (referred to as their second brain) or to investigate potential underlying infections and food sensitivities which are often issues too. I do all of that test and leave no stone unturned. That’s why many of my clients quickly start to feel a lot better with improved energy which is often depleted, not to mention an immediate reduction or even elimination of seizures.

Be sure to read my Ebooks, join me in live webinars and join the Nutrition for Seizures Facebook community.  Other resources that are available to you are recorded webinars that are loaded with information on how to identify healing opportunities.  I also offer a 30 minute free consult and look forward to meeting you.

(Have you seen improvements?) “Less seizures.  Highly recommend Lynn’s services for anyone who is suffering from epilepsy.” – D. Hitchcock

“No more seizures!” “Along with Lynn’s thoroughness and knowledge of the subject matter, I appreciate her willingness to not be an authority, but rather a guide. I found it really helpful to have the responsibility for health rest with me and know that Lynn was there as my advocate.”- Soibian

…I wanted to thank you for everything. It has now been 4 months since my last seizure and I am feeling very good!
Again I can not thank you enough and I really hope I can stay seizure free because of you!


My son started having seizures at 11 and after trying 3 different meds I had to do something different. I changed him to eating paleo in hopes of stopping his seizures. He was doing pretty well but I knew there was still a piece missing. I found Lynn and did the initial consultation and felt she could help us. We got started and did the testing. She came up with a plan for him to help to further heal him. It has been so nice to have the support from Lynn that we didn’t get from his neurologist. She is there to answer any questions I have and to cheer you on when it seems like no one else is. It has been so helpful to not have to figure it out all on my own


My son´s health was declining non-stop. He has seizures as a baby but then had a normal life until age eleven. At that point seizures returned and antiepileptic drugs were added in all sort of combinations, up to four different medications at a time. Every change in medication meant a change in the type of seizures he experienced. After living a nightmare for four years, my son is now fifteen, I heard about Lynn and her integrative approach. We learnt that with AEDs we are treating the symptoms but not the root cause. Lynn is helping us to correct unwanted unbalances and restore health to its best. Although full of doubts about this approach at the beginning, I now feel very grateful to Lynn and really appreciate all the work she is doing identifying and addressing any healing opportunity and pointing us in the right direction.


“Since I visited Lynn the first time I have no longer had a seizure. Over the past 5 to 6 years I had been having at least one to two seizure every six months. The treatment from Lynn was great! She listened to me and worked on my terms, with her methods to get the results we needed…”


“Thank you Lynne for the recommendations. My son is now 2 1/2 months free of seizures! He was struggling with seizures every three days for months. Praying for continued success”


“I will be eternally grateful to Lynn Alteri-Need for helping my 16 year old daughter S. to regain her health…”

“It’s better to be an optimist who is sometimes wrong than a pessimist who is always right.”

I love this quote! When my son was experiencing multiple seizures per day, I would hear phrases (from who I would consider close friends) "at least you can say you tried something". It was these phrases that made me fight harder, dig deeper and explore resolve for him.

It's exhausting and relentless, when physically coping with seizure disorders. The mental anguish, frustration and feelings of hopelessness (at times) were worse for me!. I remained an optimist and I encourage you to do the same while surrounding yourself with those that support you and turning off (the News, Family members, etc) that don't know how to support you.

Thinking of each and every one of you. Lynn
