Seizure-free Thanks to a Special Diet

With seeming non-stop energy Evan Kristal, a rosycheeked six-year-old, runs in place in his family’s living room. “I’m doing my exercise right now,” he says without slowing down or skipping a step. Moments later he and his younger sister Emma drag in the dining room chairs and arrange them in rows. Then they invite their parents to a make-believe movie theater. Evan’s parents, Jynell and Jeff Kristal, owners of the Crocker House Inn in Vineyard Haven, look on, smiling appreciatively. Not too long ago their son wasn’t able to play like this. In fact, Evan couldn’t do much on his own.
