Scope of Homoeopathic in treating Epilepsy

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Chennai
Epilepsy is a disorder that results from the generation of electrical signals inside the brain, causing recurring seizures. Seizure symptoms vary. Some people with epilepsy simply stare blankly for a few seconds during a seizure, while others have regular convulsions.

A seizure is a abnormal, disorderly discharging of the brain's nerve cells, resulting in a temporary disturbance of motor, sensory, or mental function. There are many types of seizures, depending primarily on the part of the brain involved.

Every person suffering from epilepsy has different experience. Hence homoeopathy offers many remedies to treat epilepsy, depending on the sign and symptoms. Homoeopathy can treat epilepsy very successfully.

Risk Factors
Early childhood
Above 65 years
Men are affected more
Family History of epilepsy
Fall on head, injury, accident
Brain Infections

Causes
Healthy people may have seizures under certain circumstances. If the seizures have a known cause, the condition is referred to as secondary or symptomatic epilepsy. Some of the more common causes include the following:
Tumour
Chemical imbalance such as low blood sugar or sodium
Head injuries
Certain toxic chemicals or drugs of abuse
Alcohol withdrawal
Stroke including hemorrhage
Birth injuries
Developmental Disorders: Epilepsy can be associated with other developmental disorders, such as autism and Down syndrome.

Symptoms
Almost any type of behavior that happens repetitively may represent a seizure. Types are:

Generalized seizures: All areas of the brain (cortex) are involved in a generalized seizure. Sometimes these are referred to as grand mal seizures.
To the observer, the person experiencing such a seizure may cry out or make some sound, stiffen for some seconds, then have rhythmic movements of the arms and legs. Often the rhythmic movements slow before stopping.
Eyes are generally open.
The person may not appear to be breathing. The person is often breathing deeply after an episode.
The return to consciousness is gradual and should occur within a few moments.
Loss of urine is common.
Often people will be confused briefly after a generalized seizure.

Partial or focal seizures: Only part of the brain is involved, so only part of the body is affected. Depending on the part of the brain having abnormal electrical activity, symptoms may vary.
If the part of the brain controlling movement of the hand is involved, for example, then perhaps only the hand may show rhythmic movements or jerking.
If other areas of the brain are involved, symptoms might include strange sensations or small repetitive movements such as picking at clothes or lip smacking.
Sometimes the person with a partial seizure appears dazed or confused. This may represent a partial complex seizure. The term complex is used by doctors to describe a person who is between being fully alert and unconscious.

Absence or Petit mal seizures: These are most common in childhood. Symptoms include
Impairment of consciousness is present with the person often staring blankly.
Repetitive blinking or other small movements may be present.
Typically, these seizures are brief, lasting only seconds. Some people may have many of these in a day.
Other types of seizure are particularly found in small children

Investigations
Neurological Examination
Blood Tests
EEG
MRI Scan
CT Scan

Diagnosis
The doctor uses neurological tests and other investigations to diagnose epilepsy.

Complications
Falling: If you fall during a seizure, you can have severe head injury.
Status Epilepticus: This condition occurs if you're in a state of continuous seizure activity lasting more than five minutes or you have frequent recurrent seizures without regaining consciousness in between them. People with status epilepticus have an increased risk of permanent brain damage and death.

Role of Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a form of healing based upon the principle of ‘Similia similibus curentur’ or ‘like cures like’. It was founded by a German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1810. Homoeopathy offers vast scope in the treatment of various illnesses, both acute and chronic including epilepsy.

Homeopathy takes into account the entire person like the patients family history, past history, etc. Homoeopathic doctors study each case thoroughly, analyze and evaluate the symptoms and then prescribe the medicine.

Homeopaths treat the patient’s mental, emotional and physical make-up i.e. the constitution. This is known as ’constitutional treatment’. Constitutional treatment treats the disease and removes it from its roots. The Constitutional method is employed in the treatment of epilepsy in Homoeopathy. This method is gives amazing results in many cases.

Homeopathy has immense scope in the treatment of Epilepsy. In fresh cases, where the child is new to epileptic treatment, homoeopathy can relieve complaints by giving ‘constitutional treatment’.

In other cases where the child is already taking treatment, homoeopathy can taper off the doses gradually and thus treat the patient effectively. Thus, in both the cases, homoeopathic treatment is beneficial in treating epilepsy.

In either of the cases, a constitutional medicine is given to treat epilepsy. Constitutional treatment relieves the patient from seizures, convulsions, etc. Thus the child can attend school daily and concentrate on his studies. In about 1/3 cases of epilepsy, a surgery known as ‘seizure surgery’ is performed. Regular constitutional treatment is very useful in such cases.

Homeopathic medicines are completely side-effect free and are not habit-forming. They can be taken by children, adults and even by pregnant women. They must be taken only after consultation from a homoeopathic practitioner.

Our team at Newlife Speciality Centre is completely dedicated to serve the patients and relieve them from illnesses. The doctors have skill and knowledge to handle different cases effectively. They strive for the well being of their clients.

I am suffering from shaking of hands since six months what is the problem behind this.
The cause of shaking of hands are * muscular weakness in hands * Improper neurological functions of hand nerves * Restlessness of body * Deficiency of nutrition in body. To get relief from shaking of hands * Give a balanced diet with vegetables, cereals, milk, fruits. Sit in the sun rays for atleast 8-10 minutes daily. * Do BHRAMARI PRANAYAM twice a day. Practice SARWANGASAN and Sit with the GYAN MUDRA in Hands. These asans & mudra calm down your brain & relieve from nervousness & restlessness. * Take Rogan Badam (almond oil) and put it 1/2 tea spoon in a glass of milk and drink it in the morning. * Take 2 teaspoon of ASHVAGANDHARISTHA added in a glass of water once a day You can consult me for your doubts and detailed treatment.

My father is suffering from parkinson disease what to do he is suffering from 4-5 years but still not cured.
Hello, parkinsons is a progressive disease of the nervous system marked by tremor, muscular rigidity, and slow, imprecise movement, chiefly affecting middle-aged and elderly people. It is associated with degeneration of the basal ganglia of the brain and a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Consult a good homoeopath for the proper treatment. He will take a complete case history of your father and then accordingly give him a perfect suitable medication. Thanks.

My father whole leg jerk sometimes in a week. When he sees leg or has his mind towards leg, jerk frequency increases. And if we indulge his mind towards other things Like in talking etc. Jerk become slower and gradually goes. He is also suffering from depression. Can this jerking be associated to parkinson disease? Why or why not. Help.

First consult a neurologist to rule out any neurological cause. In some movement disorders, the symptoms reduce on distraction. Hence that factor cannot be used to diagnose. For a patient to have Parkinson's disease, other features like tremors, rigidity, bradykinesia, etc also need to be present. Once it is ruled out, consult a psychiatrist. In some patients, depression and anxiety often manifests as a physical symptom. If he is on medication, ensure it is in supervised capacity.

This I bit awkward. I had suffered an accident when my head (neck) got too much turned and I heard a cracking sound. Although it did not cause any pain it made me believe I have broken a bone or two. I have consulted with a psychiatrist but he found no problem in me then. It's been 8 years since then but that thought still sometimes gives me trouble. I have learnt to live with it. But I would rather want a better solution to cope with it. please tell me how do I deal with it and how do I stop to bother?
