Epilepsy (Seizures/Convulsions)

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent epilectic seizures.In which brain activity becomes abnormal, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations, and sometimes loss of awareness.Seizure symptoms can vary widely. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others repeatedly twitch their arms or legs. Having a single seizure doesn’t mean you have epilepsy. At least two unprovoked seizures are generally required for an epilepsy diagnosis.

  • Short blackouts
  • Confused memory
  • Temporary unresponsivness to instructions and questions
  • Uncontrollable jerking movements of the arms and legs
  • Loss of consciousness or awareness,sudden falling for no apparent reason,sudden stiffness
  • Psychic symptoms such as fear, anxiety ,anger
  • Jerking of body ,legs ,arms
  • Repetitive movements that seem involuntary

Symptoms vary depending on the type of seizure. In most cases, a person with epilepsy will tend to have the same type of seizure each time, so the symptoms will be similar from episode to episode.

Focal seizures

Focal onset of epilepsy involves focal seizures ,or seizures that begin on one side of brain.

These seizures fall into two categories:

  • Simple focal seizures: You stay conscious and aware about your surroundings but sometimes unable to fully respond during seizure. They may alter emotions or change the way things look, smell, feel, taste or sound. They may also result in involuntary jerking of a body part, such as an arm or leg, and spontaneous sensory symptoms such as tingling, dizziness and flashing lights, hallucinations etc.
  • Complex focal seizures: A complex focal seizure causes altered consciousness but not complete loss of consciousness. During a complex partial seizure, you may stare into space and not respond normally to your environment or perform repetitive movements like blinking or gulping, such as , chewing, swallowing or walking in circles.

Seizures that appear to involve all areas of the brain are called generalized seizures. Six types of generalized seizures exist.

  • Absence seizures: Absence seizures, previously known as petit mal seizures, often occur in children and are characterized by lack of awareness and lack of responsiveness while appearing conscious staring into space or subtle body movements such as eye blinking or lip smacking,confusion,appearance of day dreaming.
  • Tonic seizures: Tonic seizures cause stiffening of your muscles. These seizures usually affect muscles in your back, arms and legs and may cause you to fall to the ground.
  • Atonic seizures: Atonic seizures, also known as drop attacks, cause a sudden loss of muscle control, which may cause you to head dropping,slumping, suddenly collapse or fall down.
  • Clonic seizures: Clonic seizures are associated with muscles spasms, jerking muscle movements. These seizures usually affect the neck, face and arms.You may lose awareness
  • Myoclonic seizures: Myoclonic seizures usually appear as sudden brief jerks or twitches of your arms and legs.Staying fully or partially concious
  • Tonic-clonic seizures: Tonic-clonic seizures, previously known as grand mal seizures, are the most dramatic type of epileptic seizure and can cause an abrupt loss of consciousness, crying out  body stiffening and shaking, and sometimes loss of bladder control or biting your tongue.

Epilepsy has no identifiable cause in about half the people with the condition. The known causes of seizure involve some injury to the brain.

Genetic influence-That results in brain injury such as tuberous sclerosis

  • Low oxygen during birth.
  • Head trauma.
  • Brain Tumours
  • Stroke any other type of damage to brain.
  • Infectious diseases: Infectious diseases, such as meningitis, AIDS and viral encephalitis
  • Prenatal injury: Before birth, babies are sensitive to brain damage that could be caused by several factors, such as an infection in the mother, poor nutrition or oxygen deficiencies. This brain damage can result in epilepsy or cerebral palsy.
  • Developmental disorders: such as autism and neurofibromatosis.
  • Status epilepticus: This condition occurs if you’re in a state of continuous seizure activity lasting more than five minutes or if you have frequent recurrent seizures without regaining full consciousness in between them.
  • Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP): People with epilepsy also have a small risk of sudden unexpected death
Homeopathy Invention:

As per latest research Epilepsy may be caused by,

  • “A MOTOR CONFLICT ” which means feeling stuck of not able to move

A fetus might endure the conflict of “not being able to escape” when the mother is in danger or because of threatening noises in the immediate environment (jackhammers, chainsaws, lawn mowers, grass trimmers), loud kitchen equipment such as blenders held close to the womb, or screaming and yelling (fights between parents, mother yelling at her children)

  • FALLING CONFLICT Any fall (accidental fall in sports, at work, falling down the stairs, slipping on a wet or icy surface, a fall from a ladder, tripping over a cable) could trigger the conflict. The conflict also relates to seeing someone else fall or collapse (witnessing someone having a stroke or a heart attack) or hearing that a loved one fell or “dropped dead”.
Homeopathy Approach:

Epilepsy can be treated with homeopathy which helps treat acute fits as well as eliminates the tendency to have seizures. An inquiry is to be made regarding the type of seizure, aura, triggering factors, finding other causes and individual dominant symptoms in each and every case. The results of the Homeopathy vary in every case depending upon the duration and type of seizure.

Homeopathy Medicines:
  • Cicuta:  Is a very effective homeopathic medicine when used to treat cases of epilepsy where convulsions are marked by violent, body distortionsThe distortions are most frightful.The person is totally unconscious. Cicuta is also one of the best remedies for epilepsy following head injury. Cicuta can be used for convulsions occurring in children during dentition, in women during and after delivery .This homeopathy medicine uses to treat epilepsy cases triggered by head injuries and worms.The triggering factors for using Cicuta are touch and noise.
  • Artemisia Vulgaris: Epilepsy which are characterized by staring into space, leaning forwards or backward, and stopping a sentence abruptly. Artemisia Vulgaris is the best medicine to solve cases of Petit Mal Epilepsy. This remedy is of great help for children with Petit Mal seizures. The main symptom is frequent brief episodes of seizures in a short time period. The triggering factor for the seizure is strong emotions, including fear.
  • Stramonium: Convulsions triggered by exposure to bright lights or shiny objects can be treated with this homeopathic remedy. In such cases, the patient may not lose consciousness but experiences jerks in the muscles of the upper body.
  • Cuprum Met: This homeopathic remedy is used to treat seizures that are preceded by experiencing an aura in the knees . spasms that begin in the fingers and toes and gradually spread to the rest of the body and jerking of muscles. this can also be used to treat convulsions that accompany menstruation and follow the delivery of a baby. the triggering factors for the attack include fright and anger.

  •  bufo Rana: Not all epileptic attacks occur you are awake. Attacks that occur in your sleep can be treated with homeopathic medicine bufo Rana. The aura is felt in the genital area. It also works well for females who have attacks of seizures during menses.
