Natural Remedies For Epilepsy Awareness Day

epilepsy-awareness-day

Epilepsy is a neurological brain disorder that affects the nerve cells and their activity in the brain. The nerve cells in the brain are disrupted by abnormal electrical activities, causing seizures and other unusual behavior. Seizures can be generalized (affecting all areas of the brain) and they can also be partial or focal (affecting a certain part of the brain’s activity).

 

Some seizures are less intense and people experience a brief moment of unawareness, being conscious yet puzzled at the same time. Seizures play a major role in the condition of epilepsy, but they are two different things. Some people can experience seizures once, while others experience them repeatedly.

 

What Causes Epilepsy?

There’s no real detectible cause for epilepsy, but the condition has been linked to several factors. Epilepsy is often confused with being an autoimmune disorder, however, it is not considered to be one. In some cases autoimmune disorders can contribute to epileptic conditions. Most of the causes of epilepsy have been linked to certain physical activities, genetics, or developmental issues.

 

Epilepsy Awareness Day, also known as Purple Day, intends to raise awareness about this condition, which affects roughly 50 million people around the world. Last year, people wore purple in various countries on all of the continents, even Antarctica. In honor of this day, here are some natural remedies that may help those with epilepsy.

 

Natural Remedies

Get Your Vitamins:

Certain vitamins have been proven to help decrease the amount of seizures people with epilepsy experience. Consuming foods that are high in folate, vitamin B6, vitamin D, and vitamin E may help control the seizures.

 

Eat Your Zinc:

Zinc deficiencies have also been linked to epilepsy. The deficiency hasn’t had much support behind it, but incorporating more zinc may help, depending on the person. Natural sources of zinc include pumpkin seeds, cashews, spinach, sunflower seeds, shiitake mushrooms, Napa cabbage, and dried apricots.

 

Don’t Forget Magnesium:

Magnesium deficiencies have also been linked to being a probable cause of epilepsy, but more research needs to be conducted to support this. Increasing the amount of magnesium can help with the recovery process. You can increase magnesium levels by consuming dark leafy greens like kale, spinach and Swiss chard, sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, avocado, bananas, cashews, almonds, and more.

 

Eliminate Processed Foods:

Processed foods, sugar, and caffeine can contribute to seizures. It’s best to eliminate foods that aren’t natural and add to the cause. Keeping a diet that provides your body with the essential nutrients is best. Raw food or vegan-based diets are best.

 

Try Acupuncture:

Acupuncture has been linked to helping those who have epilepsy. It can help change the brain’s activities, ultimately helping to reduce the amount of seizures one experiences.

 

Put Yourself In Control:

Most people can detect symptoms that are associated with them having a seizure personally. Mentally taking control can help lessen how severe seizures are or calm the body into preventing them from occurring. Things like meditation, relaxation time, walking, breathing methods, smelling a strong odor, or even just telling your body “no” can help. This natural remedy is also known as Biofeedback.

    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!

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: 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.

    A:

    Give your daughter Oxy Drops (20 drops with every glass of water) and Brain Booster (1 capsule 3 times a day) for epilepsy. Seizures are caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. Therefore, increase the blood flow and oxygenation to the brain.

    Also, give our Brain Booster Tea a try. The herbs Gotu Kola and/or Gingko Biloba in tea form are also helpful for seizures.

    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 purchased the Multi vitamins and minerals because I'm trying to go all natural with majority of the products that I use. anyhow, my question is how can this formula provide every essential vitamin that most otc vitamins if the ingredients don't specify which vitamin they represent and its mg or IU (amt per serving).

    A:

    OTC minerals don't provide all 102 minerals even in oxide form let alone organic form. We use plants, various plants, considered nutritive in that they contain a FULL spectrum on nutrients. Full spectrum means encompassing all and because you use different herbs, the nutrients one herb lacks the other contains. Also, Dherbs doesn't deal in RDA levels for nutrients, i.e. mg, grams, etc.

    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: My question is regarding fibroids. I have been told I have had fibroids about the size of someone 3 months pregnant. I have been told there are two in clusters. They gave me the diameters, but I don't have that information at this time. My OB/GYN has told me he believes it is causing me to be slightly anemic. I have been trying some remedies on my own like more exercise and a change in diet. My primary physician does not recommend surgery she has me taking iron ferrous sulfate supplements twice per day to help with my iron count. It seems to be helping. The only problem I have with taking the iron supplements is that it sometimes causes constipation and I am normally pretty regular. I usually eliminate 2 times per day sometimes 3. My OB/GYN on the other hand keeps pushing for me to having surgery.& amp; nbsp; They had me take BC pills, however I took myself off of them because they made me sick. I took them only for 6 months. I'm 45 and have never taken BC pills ever and I don't want to start now. I've never been pregnant. I flow heavy on my 2nd and 3rd day heavy and after that it is manageable. My cycle has improved however I want to reduce the flow on those days if possible and of course dissolve the fibroid if at all possible. Doctors tell me they won't go away unless removed. I used to be on my cycle for 7 days and 4 of those days were heavy. Now I'm normally on for 4 days and only the 2nd and 3rd day are heavy. I know that as I reach menopause they may shrink in size, however I'm still aways off from that. I eat no red meat however I do eat fish and poultry. I eat a pretty good balance of vegetables and fruits, mostly raw and steamed. I drink lactaid milk. I don't eat much dairy except cheese and eggs occasionally. I do have a weakness, I love potato chips. I know this is not good. I can feel the fibroid get bigger when I eat them. When I stop for a period of time it decreases in size. At least I feel like it does. I'm not a sugar craver, however during the week before my cycle I'll crave sweets. I usually resist. I feel it's my diet that has caused the fibroids as well as every female in my family has had a hysterectomy due to fibroids. I think it is also hereditary as well. Whatever the case I'd like to know what regimen can you put me on that will help me? The goal is to reduce or dissolve the size of the fibroid so it is not affecting my iron level. I'm also starting to see my abdomen get bigger when I've always had a flat stomach. Perhaps this is me just getting older, however I think it's the fibroids. Constant low levels over time can't be good. I hope I have provided you enough information to give me your recommendation. If not please feel free to e-mail me for any additional information you need. I'm looking for a natural cure. Outside of this condition I'm in very good health. No problem with weight, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I'm pretty athletic and active as well. Please advise. I look forward to your recommendation.

    A:

    I remember just recently e-mailing you on this inquiry. Your diet MUST CHANGE! Consider full fledged RAW FOODS and VEGAN diet during your healing transition. Lactaid milk is HORRIBLE for you. Did you read our â€FIBROID TUMORS†article?????? You need to keep on performing FULL BODY DETOX followed by Fibroid Buster kit and regimen, back to back! Continuously! Detoxing must become a lifestyle for you! For iron, consider Dherbs.Com IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA and MOON CYCLE FORMULA. Also, consider a telephone consultation because time is greatly limited in writing back in response to inquiries. There is much healing for you, Beloved!

    Q: What Causes Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura? A lack of activity in the ADAMTS13 enzyme (a type of protein in the blood) causes thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TPP). The ADAMTS13 gene controls the enzyme, which is involved in blood clotting. Not having enough enzyme activity causes platelets to clump together, forming blood clots. In TTP, when blood clots form, there are fewer platelets in the blood. This can cause bleeding into the skin (purpura), drawn-out bleeding from cuts, and internal bleeding. It also causes small blood clots to form suddenly throughout the body, including in the brain and kidneys. TTP also can cause red blood cells to break apart faster than the body can replace them. This leads to hemolytic anemia. My 25 yr. old niece has this very serious, rare disease, and I wanted to know if there is any natural herbs to that can help her heal this condition?

    A:

    There is plenty that can be done. Basically her blood needs to be addressed. This disease is perhaps mostly diet-related. Have her perform the FULL BODY DETOX. After the detox, put her on: BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA , ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, VITAMIN C FORMULA, and KHEMETIAN GOLD and her situation will change for the better. She needs to change her diet too! More fruits and vegetables (and vegetable juice). Just stick with Dherbs and her situation will change. Stay positive!
