Severe Epilepsy - How Surgery Can Help?

Severe Epilepsy - How Surgery Can Help?

The word epilepsy brings to mind visions of people frothing at the mouth and rolling on the ground. However, epilepsy affects each patient in a different way. This can make it hard to recognize at times. In the more serious cases of epilepsy, an epileptic attack can make a patient injure himself or develop other life threatening conditions. In rare cases, epilepsy can even cause death. Thus it becomes imperative to understand how to deal with epilepsy.

Treatment options for epilepsy can be categorized as medication, surgical procedures and dietary changes.

Medication
Medication for epilepsy is prescribed on the basis of the symptoms presented and the type of epilepsy the patient is suffering from. In most cases, seizures can be controlled with a single type of medication, but in others, the doctor may need to prescribe a combination of medicines to control epilepsy. These forms of medication do have side effects and hence any reactions to the medication must be immediately brought to the doctor's notice. The dosage for epilepsy medication may need to be varied with time. An epileptic patient should never discontinue medication on their own.

Surgery
Depending on the type of seizures and the area of the brain affected, a doctor may advise surgery in cases of severe epilepsy. Surgery can help reduce the number of seizures experienced or completely stop them. Surgery to treat epilepsy is of many types. Some of the common procedures are:

1. Surgery to remove tumor of any such conditions that may be triggering the epileptic attacks
2. Surgery to remove a small section of the brain from where a seizure originates. This may also be referred to as a lobectomy.
3. Multiple subpial transaction or a surgery that involves making a series of cuts in the brain to prevent the seizures from spreading to other parts of the brain.
4. Surgery to sever the neural connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain.
5. Surgery to remove half the brain's cortex or outer layer

Dietary changes
A diet rich in fats and low in carbohydrates can help reduce seizures. This is known as a ketogenic diet and aims at making the body break down fats instead of carbohydrates. It can cause a buildup of uric acid in the body and thus should be practiced only under the guidance of a dietician. In cases where epileptic attacks are triggered by malnutrition and birth defects, taking vitamin supplements can help lower the frequency of seizures.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Frozen Shoulder- Ayurvedic Treatment

A Frozen shoulder is a shoulder joint with significant loss of its range of motion in all directions, especially when we turn the arm upwards and away from the body. It is also known as Adhesive Capsulitis. According to ayurveda it is known as Avabahuk and it is caused by vitiated vata dosha. Due to faulty dietary habits and life style vata dosha is vitiated and it travels throughout the whole body. Where it finds the blockage of channels it accumulates there and in avbahuk the channels of the shoulder joint get blocked and it causes accumulation of vata dosha there. Vata dosha causes symptoms like pain, pricking sensation, stiffness and difficulty in movements.

Causes of Frozen Shoulder 

  1. Inflammation, scarring, thickening and shrinkage of the capsule surrounding shoulder joint.
  2.  Injury to the shoulder joint
  3. Tendinitis, bursitis and rotator cuff injury

Prevalence of Frozen Shoulder

It is more prevalent in patients of Diabetes and chronic inflammatory arthritis of shoulder joint, after chest or breast surgery. Long-term immobility of the shoulder joint can put the people at risk to develop frozen shoulder.

Management of Frozen Shoulder

The above mentioned drugs should be taken only after consulting a Qualified Ayurvedic Physician. We at Sukhayurveda provide various formulations of all these and many more herbs.

4) Life style and daily routine

One of my want to quit his habit of eating tobacco, but he is not able 2 do that, He has been eating this 4 around 4-5 years. What should he do, to quit it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Hi lybrate-user user Scary thoughts are a complex anxiety symptoms and it creates enormous amount of anxiety. There are some steps you can take to help break the cycle of scary thoughts-- Take a few times throughout the day where you can seat comfortably and visualize your scary thought in a less threatening way. You can use humour to downplay those thoughts to less threatening thoughts. Use self - talk that reassures you that you would never carry out the thoughts you think. Try to remind yourself that it's Okay that those thoughts are there don't resist them but try to accept them as just Thoughts, and nothing more. They can't hurt you. Daily meditation is very helpful for you. If you try and work hard you can feel comfortable again in your mind. Thanks.

Relation with level of thinking and stress, itself, indicates the possibility of ibs. Balanced life style with some physician or phychologist consultation would be sufficient.

Your memory problems seem to be stress related as far as your symptoms are concerned. Once your stress is treated memory should definitely improve with improved attention and concentration levels. Since only yoga and relaxation is not helping you consider visiting a psychiatrist and seek treatment. I am sure you will improve.

How Homeopathy Helps Prevent Epilepsy?

How Homeopathy Helps Prevent Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a disease that affects the brain's nerve cells and triggers the release of abnormal electrical signals. This can cause temporary malfunctioning of the other brain cells and result in sudden loss of consciousness. Epilepsy can affect both children and adults.

Epilepsy can be treated in a number of ways. One of the most preferred forms of treatment is Homeopathy. Homoeopathy not only controls these episodes but can also cure it. A few homeopathic remedies that can be used to treat epilepsy are:

  • Cicuta: Cicuta is very effective when used to treat cases of epilepsy where convulsions are marked by violent, body distortions. This can include the horrific backward bending of the spine. These convulsions also make the person's face turn blue and trigger a locked jaw. This can also be used to effectively treat epilepsy cases triggered by head injuries and worms.

  • Artemisia Vulgaris: This is used to often treat cases of Petit Mal Epilepsy which are characterized by staring into space, leaning forwards or backwards and stopping a sentence abruptly. It also addresses fear that triggers epileptic attacks.

  • Stramonium: Convulsions triggered by exposure to bright lights or shiny objects can be treated with this homeopathic remedy. In such cases, the patient may not lose consciousness but experiences jerks in the muscles of the upper body.

  • Cuprum Met: This homeopathic remedy is used to treat seizures that are preceded by experiencing an aura in the knees. Other symptoms that characterize this sort of an epileptic attack are spasms that begin in the fingers and toes and gradually spread to the rest of the body and jerking of muscles. This can also be used to treat convulsions that accompany menstruation and follow the delivery of a baby.

  • Bufo Rana: Not all epileptic attacks occur you are awake. Attacks that occur in your sleep can be treated with bufo rana. Such epileptic attacks are accompanied by experiencing an aura in the genital regions. This is especially helpful for women who experience seizures during menstruation.

  • Hyoscyamus: Some epileptic fits are followed by a deep sleep. This type of epileptic attacks can be treated with Hyoscyamus. Other symptoms addresses by this homeopathic medicine are fidgeting with bed clothes, fidgeting with fingers and muscular twitching.

Always remember for proper treatment consult a Homoeopathic doctor. We can take homoeopathic treatment with other medicines, and then can slowly reduce its doses.

You could need both if it' s severe. If you have mild then only counselling will be enough. But a psychiatrist will be able to diagnose this. You could also try ayurveda for depression.

This is likely to happen due your age and hormonal imbalances. The growth hormone and male sex hormone testosterone will affect drowsiness and laziness. Once they have settled down to normalcy, you will return to a stable pattern of sleep. In the meantime do regular exercise, eat a lot of protein and calcium-based products, and live an active life.

Because anxiety and depression have same serotonin pathways as the cause. Though classified as antidepressants, for anxiety, these are the medications of choice. They can be safely taken on a longer run. Pure anxiety reducing benzodiazepine group of drugs like anxit, restyl, are very harmful on a longer run, in fact the name it self on these by drug companies are misleading. Psychiatrists and neurologists, dont prescribe them on a longer run, but for short term use only. SSRI group can be safely taken for long term
