Paralysis occurs due to some problem in brain like blood clot/hemorrhage in a supplying artery of brain. Apparently it happened in your case due to some type brain insult. It will take many years to recover from this illness. You must have recovered a little till the time. You should try doing something with the help of other hand. Ideally you should regularly go to a physiotherapy center for exercise. Gradually you will be able to do many things and can also walk. I wish you all the best.

During Parkinson's disease, there is tremor, walking problems and all. But this won't happen. From my side, I would suggest you to go for Homeopathic treatment. As it will help both, your father as well as grandfather. But for that atleast you need to give me few details. It can be reduced within 6 months itself and the allopathic medicines for that can be reduced too. If possible, just give me his details. Take care. :)

Seizures are a condition wherein the nerves are very excitable. Triggered by certain factors. Medication include those that decrease excitability. But in the process general neural function is also suppressed, leading to dullness, memory weakness, and social behavioral changes. Consider homeopathy to correct the underlying cause of seizure in the child - as you can be tapered and stopped of seizure medicines and return to normal functioning.
