I am 48 year old woman who is working in the govt. I feel like I have been deserted by all my relatives, including my brothers, sisters and parents. I am married and I have a 18 year old girl studying in her 12th std. 4 years before there was a problem in the family. From that day on which I have been prevented in talking to my relatives. As long as I am in my workplace I feel comfortable, but when I come home my mind gets disturbed, as this makes me to feel deserted and therefore intend to fight with my husband and sometimes yell at my daughter too. I am not visited by anybody from my relatives side for the past 5 years and if they intend to come and when I discuss about this like people are likely to come to see me that we end end in a fight. This disturbs my daughter too in her studies. His humiliation and abusive language makes me tense but I am undergoing this pain mainly for the sake of my daughter. I do not know what and how to handle? Today also I felt like crying therefore I closed the door and cried loudly without the knowledge of my daughter as she would be upset.

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.
Above 65 years
Men are affected more
Family History of epilepsy
Fall on head, injury, accident
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:
Chemical imbalance such as low blood sugar or sodium
Certain toxic chemicals or drugs of abuse
Stroke including hemorrhage
Developmental Disorders: Epilepsy can be associated with other developmental disorders, such as autism and Down syndrome.
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
The doctor uses neurological tests and other investigations to diagnose epilepsy.
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.

Teenage is a critical period in a person's life when the body goes through a sea of changes, both physically as well as mentally. For most teenagers, it is a period to explore new terrains. But the teenage period can also be associated with what people dread the most. Teenage depression, stress, and anxiety are on a mercurial rise. The World Health Organization shares a disturbing statistics whereby 1 in every 4 Indian teenagers (between 13-15 years of age) suffers from depression and the associated complications. Heart-wrenching is the fact that in many cases, the depression ends in suicides. Efforts should be made to nip the problem at the earliest.
What causes depression among teenagers?
The teenage depression can stem from the factors below mentioned:
- As you step into adolescence, your body goes through hormonal changes. The mood swings, stress, and depression can be an outcome of the hormonal changes.
- Teenagers subjected to bullying and harassment (schools, society, friends) can also suffer from depression.
- A failed relationship can also act as a trigger driving the person into depression.
- Increased and repeated pressure to excel both academically as well as in extra curricular activities can also take a toll, resulting in depression.
- Depression can be a hereditary trait. Thus, teenagers who have a family history of depression (immediate relatives) are more susceptible to suffer from the condition.
- At times, teenagers under peer pressure can go astray, taking to smoking, drinking or substance abuse. All these unhealthy lifestyle habits can play a pivotal role triggering depression among teenagers.
Signs and symptoms indicating depression among teenagers
Teenagers suffering from depression may exhibit one or more of the following visible signs and symptoms.
- A sudden change in behavior. The teenager may get agitated and short tempered at small instances.
- Their self-confidence goes for a toss.
- Many teenagers with depression cut themselves off from the outside world. They start avoiding interacting with people as much as they can.
- They get overcome with extreme emotions (cries even at small instances).
- There may be changes in eating as well as sleeping habits.
- Lack of concentration.
- In extreme cases, the person may even exhibit suicidal tendencies.
How to deal with teenage depression:
Do not neglect the situation if the teenager is suddenly exhibiting a changed behavior. Talk to them. Try to find out the cause of discomfort and anguish.
- Parents should not pressurise their children. Appreciate their achievements, no matter how small. Never demoralize or compare your kids with others.
- If your child is avoiding people, try to find out the reason behind their behavior.
- If the child shows suicidal tendencies or is into unhealthy lifestyle habits, seek an expert help immediately. Your timely intervention can save your child from taking any drastic step.
- Meditation and exercise can go a long way to lift up the mood and spirits of your child.
- Treat your child with love and affection. This is what they need the most.
