What is Epilepsy
Epilepsy is a spectrum of brain disorders ranging from serious, life-threatening and disabled to more benign ones. The ordinary pattern of neuronal activity is troubled in epilepsy, causing unusual sensations, feelings, and activity or sometimes convulsions, muscle pain, and loss of consciousness.
Epilepsy may evolve due to an abnormality in brain wiring, an imbalance in nerve signalling chemicals called neurotransmitters, changes in significant brain cell characteristics called channels, or some mixture of these and other factors.
How does a seizure vary from epilepsy?
A convulsion is a brief episode caused by a temporary brain disorder that affects one or more brain functions. Epilepsy is a brain disturbance associated with enhanced susceptibility to seizures. When an individual experiences a seizure, it does not show that they have epilepsy. A diagnosed patients with epilepsy show that they have had a seizure (usually 2 or more) and we consider them to have an increased risk of future seizures due to a brain-related cause
Types of Epilepsy
Two major types of seizures occur. Generalized seizures impact the brain as a whole. Focal seizures or partial seizures affect only one portion of the brain. It may be hard to acknowledge a mild seizure. It may last a couple of seconds in which you lack consciousness. Stronger convulsions can trigger unchecked muscle spasms and twitches and last for several minutes or a few seconds. Some individuals get confused or lose consciousness during a stronger seizure.
What are the symptoms of epilepsy?
Seizures are epilepsy’s primary symptoms. Symptoms vary from individual to individual and depending on the form of seizure.
Focal (partial) seizures
A simple partial seizure is not a loss of consciousness. Symptoms include changes in taste, smell, vision, hearing, or touch, dizziness, tingling, and limb twitching. Complex partial seizures require the loss of consciousness or awareness. Other symptoms include blank staring, irresponsibility, repetitive movement.
General seizures involve the entire brain. Six kinds of seizures exist, namely absence, tonic seizures cause muscle stiffness, atonic seizures lead to muscle control loss, clonic seizures, myoclonic seizures, tonic-clonic seizures. But body stiffness, shaking, tongue biting, loss of consciousness are prevalent symptoms of generalized seizures.
What are the main causes of Epilepsy?
Traumatic brain injury, brain scarring following a brain injury, severe illness or very elevated fever, stroke, absence of brain oxygen, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumour, infectious diseases such as meningitis, genetic or developmental disorders or neurological diseases are the primary causes of epilepsy.
How does Homoeopathy help to improve from epilepsy?
Homeopathy treatment aims to enhance and stimulate the body’s immune system and self-regulatory mechanisms. Homeopathy treatment focuses on both the personal symptoms of the disorder and the underlying causes of epilepsy. Homeopathy treatment for epilepsy act as muscles relaxant and helps to normalize the electric activity in the brain thus reducing convulsions.
