Homeopathic Remedies for Seizures

Epilepsy is a disorder of the nervous system which is characterised by the tendency of a person to have seizures. Seizure refers to appearance of symptoms (depending upon the type of seizure) in a person due to abnormal and excessive nerve cell activity in brain. The result is abnormal behaviour and sensations, including loss of consciousness.There are a variety of seizures with different symptoms depending on the part of brain involved. Homeopathy provides treatment for Seizures the natural way. The completely natural Homeopathic remedies for epilepsy are completly safe and have no side effects.These remedies are of great help in the treatment of Epilepsy.

Types of seizures with symptoms

Focal (Partial Seizure): When the seizures occur due to involvement of one area of brain, they are known as Focal Seizures. These are of two types: Simple Partial and Complex Partial. In Simple Partial cases, the person remains conscious, has a sudden emotional experience (feeling of joy, sadness, fear, sexual arousal), has hallucinations of hearing, taste, smell or vision, and there may also be an involuntary jerking of body parts. In Complex Partial Seizure, the person’s consciousness is altered or lost. The symptoms include staring, automatism (repeated rhythmic, purposeless movements) like eye blinking, hand rubbing, walking in circle, mouth movements, smacking movement of lips, picking at bed clothes. After a few minutes, consciousness is regained and the drowsy feeling may remain.[toc]

Generalised Seizure: When all areas of brain are involved, then generalised seizures occur. These are of the following types:

Tonic Clonic (Grand Mal Seizures): The symptoms are loss of consciousness, and stiffness or rigidity of body with falling down. Respiration arrest and blueness of body also occur. This is followed by relaxation resulting in jerking of body. The jerking is followed by regaining of consciousness but confusion, impaired memory, headache and sleepiness. Loss of bladder control and tongue biting are common in these types of seizures. Aura precedes the attack. Aura is a subjective feeling experienced by a patient whereby he or she becomes aware that an attack is about to begin.

Tonic seizures: In these seizures, muscle stiffness mainly of back, arms and legs occurs.

Clonic seizures: These seizures cause muscle jerking.

Absence (Petit Mal/Minor Seizure): The symptoms are minor like mainly staring or just a slight tilt in head, and brief alteration of consciousness usually for seconds. There is no fall or muscle contraction. A person may have more than 20 episodes per day. It is common in childhood. The person gets normal without any confusion when the seizure is over.

Causes And Triggering Factors Of Epilepsy Seizures

The main causes of Epilepsy and resultant seizures include Meningitis, head injury or trauma, stroke, brain tumour, high fever (Febrile Seizure), and parasite infection Neuro-cysticercosis. The main triggering factors include light, noise, sleep loss, alcohol intake and cigarette smoking.
