In this episode, I’m talking with Marc Isaacson, who shares his family’s fascinating personal story around epilepsy. At age 8, his daughter Tess suddenly had a frightening Grand Mal seizure. Then, she continued experiencing seizures regularly, mostly at night.
As the owner of an integrative pharmacy, Marc vowed to find out why the seizures had come on so suddenly. It took several years, and exhaustive exploration, but his family ultimately did discover what triggered Tess’s seizures and found solutions for managing them naturally.
In my conversation with Marc, you’ll hear…
- What their daughter’s seizure pattern looked like
- The conventional/allopathic treatment for epilepsy that they tried initially
- Why a ketogenic diet for epilepsy didn’t work for their daughter
- The role of genetic, biochemical and food sensitivity testing
- The superfoods that actually worsened Tess’s seizures
- How her genetics may be linked to epilepsy
- The natural protocol that stopped her seizures
- Tess’s maintenance regimen to stay seizure-free
What I love about my interview with Marc is that it points to how critical a personalized approach is to healthcare. What worked for other children with epilepsy did not work for Tess. And what worked for Tess may not work for other children.
Besides his role as a father, Marc has started and led successful entrepreneurial ventures for over 20 years. He has always been passionate about functional nutrition and wellness which led to his first venture, an all-natural beverage company (Glacier Ridge) well ahead of the natural and organic food trends of today. In 2002, Marc acquired Village Green Apothecary (VGA), which was founded in 1965 and is currently an industry-leading integrative pharmacy located next to the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the Washington D.C. area. VGA has since expanded into a suite of personalized health offerings including a custom compounding lab and one of the largest selections of health products found anywhere, with over 10,000 products and 500 brands including the company’s Pathway and Sinus Survival brands. With chemists, pharmacists, nutritionists and knowledgeable full-service staff of over 50, VGA offers personalized solutions for its customer base. Six years ago, Marc began to seek out the most influential and highly respected minds, partnering with Dr. Joseph Pizzorno, the Founder of Bastyr University and highly regarded as “the father of evidence-based natural medicine”. The journey to launch IQYOU Health began and today they have recently launched the beta version of the platform, working with top functional health practitioners to help get to the root cause of their patients’ chronic conditions.
If you are someone you know is struggling with epilepsy, or seizures, I know you’ll take away a lot of insights from our talk.
