Avocados have (almost) cured 5-year-old of epilepsy


According to a report by the New York Post, Australian girl named Leafy Liu has been nearly cured of her epilepsy — thanks to avocados.

Leafy was diagnosed with epilepsy after a 45-minute seizure. Shortly thereafter, she was having up to 60 seizures a day.

To combat their daughter’s seizures, Leafy’s parents, Justin and Claire, tried everything. Not much worked — until they tried dietary measures.

Leafy has been eating four avocados a day for the last year and now only suffers four seizures a year.

“Almost as soon as she started on the diet, she felt fit, happier, healthier, [and] more relaxed,” Claire says. “Everything you’d want for your little girl.”
