Epilepsy (Seizures)

Causes and Risk Factors

Epilepsy or seizures are caused by a surge in electrical signals or energy in the brain. This can be triggered by:

  • Head trauma
  • Genetic influences
  • Medical disorders
  • Certain diseases such as meningitis, AIDS and viral encephalitis
  • Pre-natal injury
  • Developmental disorders such as Down syndrome and autism

Risk factors include:

  • Age-while epilepsy can happen at any age, it’s typically seen in younger years or at ages 65 or older
  • Gender-men are more likely to experience seizures than women
  • Head injuries
  • Hormonal changes brought on by pregnancy, menopause or taking hormone-based medication such as thyroid meds, birth control or growth hormones
  • Stroke or vascular disease
  • Brain infections
  • High childhood fevers

Symptoms

When consciousness is lost during a seizure, it is called “Grand mal seizure.” When consciousness is not lost during a seizure, it is called “Petit mal seizure.”

Seizures can display as:

  • Temporary confusion
  • Staring blankly
  • Convulsion
  • Jerking movementsLoss of awareness
  • Loss of consciousness

Healing Options

Herbs great for healing epilepsy include all herbs that increase and enhance oxygen flow throughout the body, e.g., Gotu Kola, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng, Holy/Blessed Thistle, Black Walnut Hulls, and Green Tea. Additional herbs great for healing epilepsy include Jasmine Flower, Lady’s Slipper, Irish Moss, Cayenne, Ginger, Fo Ti, Jatamansi, Scullcap, European Mistletoe, Oatstraw, and Maca Maca.

One of the best remedies for epilepsy involves the use of crystals. When you compress two pieces of crystal (especially Clear Quartz crystal) together, the friction creates a form of electricity called piezoelectricity that causes the release of negative ions throughout the entire body that travel down to the feet and up to the crown of the head electrically fine-tuning the entire body, increasing oxygen flow, and stimulating cellular regeneration.

Crystals that aid in the prevention and healing of seizures include Lepidolite, Sugilite, Jet, Selenite, Kunzite, Malachite, and Emerald. Because epilepsy affects the nervous system located in the brain, epilepsy is a Seventh or Crown chakra deficiency and therefore, for purposes of healing epilepsy, crystals that are the same color of the Seventh chakra (violet and/or white) are best for this purpose.

Essential oils that aid in prevention and healing of seizures include Marjoram and Lavender. It is best that these oils be inhaled or burned in a diffuser.

Bach flower essences that aid in prevention and healing of seizures include Heather, Impatiens, and Water Violet.

Avoid stress, since this can create a change in body chemistry that could lead to a seizure.

Get plenty of sleep.

Do not drink alcohol, take drugs or smoke.

Dietary Intervention

Meat and dairy foods are bound to clog the arteries and obstruct oxygen and blood flow and thus a switch to a vegan and/or raw foods diet would be appropriate and beneficial in healing from epilepsy. Natural foods (fruits and vegetables) will automatically bring more oxygen into the body and unlike meat and dairy products will not clog the arteries due to arterial plaque and mucus buildup.

Water, fruit and/or vegetable juice, and herbal teas should be the drink of choice for purposes of healing from epilepsy.

A ketogenic diet may be beneficial. This type of diet forces the body to burn fat rather than carbohydrates. It is based in high-fat, adequate protein and low carbohydrate foods.

    Q: I have a 17 years old daughter that is taking the brain toner for her epileptic seizures for about a month now. I wanted to know how long with the effects take place to allow sufficient oxygen to her brain, and will the seizures eventually cease? My daughter is on a herbal, and conscious diet, but I am still working on her eating out to restaurants every now and then. Working on her getting the proper rest each day, since she is a junior in high school. Please let me know if there is anything else I need to do, since she did have a small seizure today, which is better than the ones she has had in the past. I know it will take some time for the brain toner to work.

    A:

    Patience is required in healing, Beloved! Let nature take her natural course! Also, there may be underlying metaphysical causative factors for the seizures. I would suggest adding Ethereal Bliss with Brain Tuner, and she should also drink the Brain Tuner Tea along with taking the capsules. These are optional, but I do recommend them, at least to experiment with in hopes of facilitating elimination of the seizures. Have her perform deep breathing exercises on a daily basis too! A raw foods/vegan diet is BEST for her too! Undoubtedly so! Those restaurants are using some very dangerous chemicals. Drive this point home to her!

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: My daughter continues to take 2 capsules of Cardio-Vascular Formula at night, 2 capsules of Brain Tuner in the morning, and 1 at night. Also, using the Children Detox Oxy-Drops. However, she still experiences palpitation, every morning when she wakes up from her sleep. She will get a severe epilepsy attack every 10 days, or forthnightly. The cycle seems to repeat itself. What else should I do, to reduce her morning palpitation, and improve on her epilepsy attack? Will Ginkgo biloba help or any other herbs help?

    A:

    Give her Gingko Biloba, and Gotu Kola, preferably in tea, or liquid extract form. Also consider our Magical Alchemical Elixir. Give her our Heart Heart tea too! Clearly there's a problem with her heart, so target the heart!

    Q: My daughter aged 10 having the symptom mention below whenever she wakes up from her sleep. Can you please let me know what causes these palpitations? Are there any herbs to cure this palpitations fast heartbeat? She also has epilepsy. I have read your article on epilepsy and bought the BRAIN TUNER and OXY-DROPSand waiting for my brother to bring it back from New Zealand as the Malaysian government do not allow us to purchase herbs directly from overseas through the internet. I will be receiving them next week. Please advise what and how to have her palpitations solve. It may last for 40 minutes to an hour especially during the morning and that always causes her to be late to school.

    A:

    I would need some information about the child's diet and lifestyle to really determine what the cause of the palpitations is. Since the heart is involved, I would suggest the child takes 2-3 capsules of the CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA each night before bedtime. The child can also drink 1-cup of our HEARTY HEART TEAdaily as well.

    Q: I have a question, my daughter (who is 2 yrs old) has had fevers which went up to 101-104. She has had 3 febrile seizures due to the fevers. Her doctor explained to me that it is not actually how high her temp is, but how quickly it went up that sent her into the seizure. So, what do I do in that case. I don't want the fever to go up so quickly that she begins to seize, and I obviously can't wait until it goes up to 104 for fear of her having a seizure. What do you suggest? I do have the ginger extract from you. Thank goodness she has not had any fevers at all recently. I pray that she has grown out of it but, just in case....what do you suggest?

    A:

    Keep the child cool (cool bath, cold towel on head, etc.)! But more importantly, have the child to cleanse periodically with the Children's Full Body Detox. Fever's occur when one is toxic. Fever causes sweat of toxins via the skin.

    Q: I gave my daughter 1 capsule of BRAIN TUNER every morning for about two weeks now. She now has a mild to average seizure every day instead of twice or three times a week. And since taken this Brain Tuner two weeks ago she has had two bad attacked. Normally she will get a bad attack every 2 - 3 weeks once. Most of her attack come during her sleep or during an afternoon nap, i.e. she will wake up from this sleep/nap and stay still for 30 sec - 1 minutes and the attack will come and her entire palms and feet will turn cold and heart starting to beat very fast. And once in a while if she does not get enough sleep she will get a hard attack out of the blue during the day otherwise most of the seizure attack during her sleep. Does this Brain Tuner stimulate her brain and causes the attack? What other remedy should I take to cut down this seizure?

    A:

    Sounds like the body (brain) is being greatly regulated, but if the BRAIN TUNER is speeding up the attack of seizures, abstain from using it and just give OXY-DROPS in glass or cup or water (20 drops per cup/glass). Normally a thing increases before it decreases but if this causes concern then abstain and try something else.

    Q: While I know by experience that herbs can have a healing effect, You say that clearly, "Sarcoidosis affects the glands", the inner and outer skin, and the lymphatic system. Sarcoidosis is a degenerative disease, and is therefore due to improper diet. You don't mention at any stage that it is an auto immune disease. To say that diet alone can cause one's immune system to attack the body, and major organs (which you don't mention anywhere) seems very simplistic. I may be wrong, but I hope you are not just raising hopes for all the sufferers out there. My sister has sarcoidosis.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I want to in futile and falsely raise innocent people's hopes and create bad karma for myself? I'm not one of the unscrupulous Christian ministers who do such, Beloved. I'm a wise natural healer. I have no incentive in raising false hopes. Life is not joke nor is suffering! Sarcoidoisis is a PREVENTABLE and REVERSIBLE disease which means it is diet related. A disease is preventable because eating wrong foods can be prevented. A disease is reversible because poor diet is reversible. Research the medical term "degenerative disease" and you'll understand where I'm coming from. I'm not one to embrace auto-immune disease because when the body turns on itself that's not natural. The person did something to make their body attack itself. People invite disease, Ma'am via WRONG DIET, WRONG THOUGHTS, WRONG ACTIONS, etc. If she was born with sarcoidosis, she picked up in life, a life that she led pursuant to her own free will. I say again: YOU CAN heal from any disease! If you believe you can, you can. If you believe you can't, you can't! It IS that simple! Jesus (not that you may be a Christian, I'm just quoting) stated: If thou canst belive, all things are possible to him that believeth!

    Q: I had my stroke in 2003, as a result of brain surgery. If the stroke was from surgery, tissue was damaged. What would you suggest? Raw food diet & herbs? I have partial left side paralysis, and nerve cell damage to my right eye. Is there any hope after 6 years, for healing a hemorrhage stroke holistically?

    A:

    Yes, raw foods diet, and some vegan foods too. You don't have to go completely raw. To heal from the damage that led to your stroke, take daily Cerebral Vascular Formula, Nerves Formula, CNS Formula, Circul-Aid Formula, and Veins Formula. Take 3 capsules each daily for approximately 3 months. Add Oxy-Drops to each glass of drinking water. Give deep breathing a try! Use visualization techniques to get your mind involved in your healing. Consider reading our "Mental Science Manual." (optional). You can heal, Beloved. With God all things are possible!

    Q: Peace and Love my Dear Friend! I have been managing thorough the healing process. I had my monthly checkup last week at Kaiser, I knew the blood count reading was going to be low because of the heavy bleeding. Well as it turns out it was so low Kaiser repeatedly called me to go to the nearest emergency room for a blood transfusion. I told them that I was not interested in a blood transfusion. I was told that I was risking a stroke or heart attack. I am concerned as I am experiencing weakness, headaches, and shortness of breath. I also took a pelvic ultrasound which showed two small fibroids remaining. I passed about 10 fibroids in the last three months. When we met, you mentioned your friend who beat breast cancer. You mentioned a oxygen therapy that she utilized where she had a needle inserted into the tumor containing a form oxygen. Can you get me some information on the oxygen therapy she used. You also mentioned a oxygen machine that you sell that would oxygenize drinking water. Any information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    You don't need a blood transfusion, you need to build up your blood with herbs, i.e. NETTLE, YELLOW DOCK, BURDOCK, DANDELION, IRISH MOSS, etc. or Dherbs BLOOD & LYMPHATIC and/or IRON PHOSPHATE formula.

    Most of all DON'T WORRY because you're body will respond -- guaranteed! Doctors are always telling Black women this to get them to undergo surgery, blood transfusions, take poisonous iron pills, etc.

    In re stroke or heart attack caveat (warning), start taking herbs (drinking tea) of PERIWINKLE, HAWTHORNE BERRIES, GINGER, and CINNAMON immediately or Dherbs CARDIOVASCULAR and STROKE BUSTER formulas.

    In re headaches, herbs of WHITE WILLOW BARK, FEVERFEW, MEADOWSWEET, GINKO BILOBA or Dherbs HEADACHE formula.

    A chakra balancing may do you some good too right about now. I have a few openings for this Wednesday and Thursday if you are interested.

    I will contact Gennifer about the oxygen therapy procedure. I sell Ozone machines for $400 (which we don't advertise on the site). Oxygen will do you some good.

    START juicing with CELERY, APPLE, GINGER (just a little bit), BEET, and CARROT now!!!!!! This will help to build up the blood.

    Stay positive! You are releasing from the heart (emotions), but the shortness of breath denote your life force is low right now, the headache denotes resistance, the weakness denotes lack of strength (spiritually due to it being zapped by past and present life issues.

    Doctor visits may not be wise in the future. You'll only walk away with bad news that will create more worry on your mind which your body will respond to. You might as well go all herbal and natural.

    The two remaining fibroids are due to resistance, they fibroids are holding on as a sign that in some area of your life (emotionally) you're still holding on to something.

    Try to laugh! Think only of happy things. Think of things to feel good about! Lay down, listen to some good music (classical would be ideal). Go to the beach and bury your feet in the sand. Is romeo on the scene? Experience romance if he is! Love, live, laugh, lose, let go, luxuriate, etc.

    Q: I have questions about the Chakra Elixirs. Can one take all 8 drops of your chakra elixirs, (this include the Love, and Healing Elixirs for the 4th chakra) at once? If not, then what would be the recommended practice, if I wanted to utilize all 8 elixirs? Could I also take the Pineal Elixir along with your recommendation on taking the chakra elixirs?

    A:

    While you could take all the Chakra Elixirs together (and even the Pineal Glad stimulator), we'd recommend that you take them separately so each chakra can have it's necessary time to be tuned up.

    Q: First off let me say that I am a true believer in natural healing. I have had the "pleasure" of going through serious intestional complications, arthritis pain, foot issues and severe menstrual pain with no real help from conventional doctors or medicine. I am extremely grateful for this site, your wisdom, and your sincere desire to help people. In the very near future I am going to purchase your Full Body Detox Kit, but I am currently on an oxygen therapy routine involving 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide that is ingested (not by itself of course!). Will I be able to continue my oxygen therapy along with the detox?

    Q: Thought I would let you know about my experience with Dherbs FULL BODY DETOX system. I am a healthy 33 year old woman who 5'4" 170. I changed my diet back in March in an effort to lose weight and it has been working. I heard about your product on the Russ Parr Moring show and had visited your site contemplating ordering. I consulted with my mom who is HEAVY into herbs and alternative healing. She and I read your product ingredients together and she confirmed that the listed herbs are very good cleansing agents and should be safe. I ordered a few weeks ago to assist in my weight loss but actually started the detox on Monday Sept 1st. The first day went well and I saw results immediately. The second day produced results also but almost immediately after taking the 7pm pills I had a pressure that moved around in my head. I did not hurt but it was different from anything that I have ever felt. Then my face began to tighten up and twitch. These effects lasted for about 5 minutes. The next day, Sept 3rd, I did not use the pills and was fine. This morning Sept 4th I took the 7am pills within minutes I experienced the same symptoms. After consulting my doctor and my mother I decided to cease the system because it seemed that my nerves were being affected. What do you think caused it and how do I get my money back?

    A:

    I can't and won't spend a lot of time in this response because it's so common and too much information on it already exists on the site (i.e. Detox Trouble-Shooter, article "Healing Crisis" "Is This Normal?) 1. Please read the article "HEALING CRISIS". 2. Please read the article "IS THIS NORMAL?" 3. Please read "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING" ("Twitching"). 4. Please read FAQ ("FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE") near bottom of the page (which explains that there are no refunds for healing crisis symptoms). Healing crisis is POSITIVE and is a sign much needed healing and cleansing is taking place. Clearly you have damaged nerves that really needed addressing and it's taking place but your fear predicated upon ignorance is stopping the process. You experience healing crisis and panic and want to stop the healing and desire a refund. We don't refund for misunderstandings, fear, social programming, etc. Healing crisis don't last forever! Many people experience healing crisis but still stick with the program. Read some of the testimonials on the site ("TESTIMONIAL PAGE").
