Epilepsy is a condition characterized by recurrent disturbances of the brain's electrical activity that manifest as sudden attacks of altered consciousness, involuntary and abnormal motor function and sensation, and alterations of the nervous system. Sometimes loss of consciousness can also occur.
The most common form of epilepsy is convulsive, meaning the attack starts with loss of consciousness and motor control, and then the individual has extreme jerking muscular movements.
There are four types of epilepsy: grand mal epilepsy, characterized by major episodes associated with loss of consciousness; petit mal epilepsy, characterized by milder episodes, usually without loss of consciousness; psychomotor epilepsy, characterized by different types of abnormal movements; and autonomic epilepsy, which is associated with flushing, whiteness of skin, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, abdominal symptoms, and sweating.
The cause of epilepsy is unknown.
Nutrient deficiencies, thyroid disorders, and stress can all contribute to epileptic seizures and must be screened for and addressed as part of a comprehensive treatment approach. Proper bowel movements two to three times a day are also important. If necessary, consider a bowel cleanse to restore healthy bowel function.
There are natural cures for Epilepsy that do not involve the use of pharmaceutical drugs. The alternative therapies which are used to treat Epilepsy focus on restoring the biochemical balance of the body, and making dietary and lifestyle changes designed to improve one's general health.
