Are you heavily burdened and frustrated by Refractory (medically uncontrolled) Epilepsy (a.k.a seizure disorder)?  I have known that burden and frustration. I have come through to the other side to a life of thriving despite the diagnosis.  Are you ready to help yourself live a life feeling better, set free from such a burden?


 The Prophet Jesus speaks to all living beings who are weary and burdened. Through Positive Seizure Management, extra relief for adults weary from carrying the burden of Refractory Epilepsy. This relief, in the form of Refractory Epilepsy Self Therapy is the legacy born from a vision shared by myself and my daughter Jesyka.


Millions around the globe are affected by Epilepsy in all its forms. A growing percentage receives the diagnosis of Refractory Epilepsy either at the time of diagnosis or after testing many anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). My daughter Jesyka and I, in the year 2000, became a part of the growing percentage.


On the day we received the diagnosis of Refractory Epilepsy tonya-heathcomanifesting from the diagnosis of a genetic form of Peri-Ventricular Nodular Heterotopia, we became inspired to create a new system to help ourselves and others.

Refractory Epilepsy Self Therapy (R.E.S.T.) is the result of our shared vision, our blended legacy.  Jesus words in the following verse gave birth to the inspiration of R.E.S.T. :

tonya-heathco“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28 -30

If you or a loved one have heard from a treating medical professional the diagnosis of Refractory Epilepsy or medically uncontrolled seizures, R.E.S.T is for you.

When you have been left with a feeling of hopelessness after a life-altering diagnosis given by a medical professional unwilling to go further with therapy, R.E.S.T. is for you.

If you are looking for a quick fix, a cure, another pill, potion, powder, or financial support, R.E.S.T. is NOT for you.

Refractory Epilepsy Self Therapy is a self-regulated program for adults ready to take personal responsibility for their diagnosis and their daily actions.  R.E.S.T is not a support group or a diet, although there are support and dietary suggestions made within the program.


We will walk together to discover the essentials of R.E.S.T. with every visit.  I am pledging myself, to my daughter, and to you to offer the highest form of respect and service while delivering quality references derived from personal experiences of over 30 years living with Refractory Epilepsy.   You will find this program is unique, and when you approach it honestly and with no resistance, you may see a high quality of relief in your daily life.  During R.E.S.T. we will dig deep to find balance in the areas of:

  • Spiritual
  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Social
  • and more


A deep concern of Jesyka’s in developing R.E.S.T. is that all adults ready to learn from this program know we are all equal and understand our philosophies for life, so I will be including these in the program for your benefit and her honor.

Why have I waited so many years to publish this program?  Honestly, I had inner healing of my own to accomplish before growing the courage to bring this creation to the world. At the peak of the momentum of creating ideas for this program, around the Fall of 2012, Jesyka’s life was suddenly lost through SUDEP ( Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). After years of healing grief and repairing my own body and mind through this program, I am now ready to present our blended legacy of R.E.S.T. to adults ready to thrive while living with the diagnosis of Refractory Epilepsy.

The journey through this program is intended to be comfortable so please take your time, leave comments benefiting you and others along your journey, and be easy with yourself every step of the way.
