Epilepsy Treatment and its Various Cures
Epilepsy is a disorder of the nervous system. It occurs when the proper functioning of the neurons or nerve cells inside the brain is effected. The disorder can cause seizures in the patients, which are sometime referred to as fits and convulsions. Seizure is a situation in which the patient looses his consciousness repeatedly. You need to take medical treatment if you are suffering from Epilepsy. There are a number of ways to treat Epilepsy. Some among these are:
Epilepsy cannot be treated completely but there are some medicines that are helpful in controlling the seizures. Most of the Epilepsy patients respond well to these medicines. You need to consult a doctor before taking theses medicines as there are some side effects of these medicines. Drowsiness is one such side effect. If you have not experienced a seizure attack for more than two years then your doctor will advice you to lower down the doses of these medicines. The types of medicines given to the patients depend on the type of Epilepsy a person is suffering from.
Stress is considered as the biggest cause of Epilepsy. Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Acupuncture are some therapies that are helpful in reducing stress thereby reducing the chances of Epilepsy. Ask your therapist which type of therapy will serve you best.
St. John's Wort is an herbal medicine that is helpful in the treatment of Epilepsy. But one thing should be kept in mind while taking this medicine is to always take this medicine alone; if you take this medicine with other Allopathic medicines then it can produce some serious side effects.
People suffering from this disorder are advised to take Ketogenic diet. It is a diet which is high in fat contents and low in carbohydrate contents. This diet will help in generating Ketone bodies; these are helpful in suppression of seizures.
If your disorder is severe then your neurologist can suggest you surgical cure. But it is suggested only to those people who are not responding to the forms of cure. There are a number of risks associated with this type of treatment.
