Is there a natural remedy that could reduce or eliminate seizures?
I take grandmal seizures I have tried many synthetic meds all I got was all kinds of side effects one of which was feeling like a zombie. I have become interested in taking the natural remedy approach to ailments.
According to Dr. Ray Sahelian there are several natural options for seizure control. It appears none of them totally eliminate the problem, but several of them either reduce the frequency or the severity of the actual convulsions. Some of the recommended products and therapies for seizures include: a ketogenic diet, improved sleep patterns, a high-fat-low-carb diet, fish oil, melatonin, passionflower supplement, Bacopa, Omega3-rich diet.
There absolutely is--and it has been known since the 1800's. The problem is, it is only a legal medicinal herb in some states. That is cannabis sativa, commonly known as marijuana. It is non-addictive, non-toxic, and far safer than any drug made by big pharmaceutical companies.
You do not "get high" using it medicinally, and even if you did, it is not harmful. No one has ever died from using it--and that is scientifically documented.
Here is a link to an actual person's experience:
As a registered nurse, I recommend you look into alternative therapies but be very careful. I am not aware of any scientifically proven treatment for tonic-clonic seizures that does not involve medication.
It is also important to have blood levels of your anti-seizure medications checked to make sure they are at a therapeutic level. Make sure you tell your doctor about any other medications you are taking in case there might be an interaction.
I also suggest you look into getting a seizure response dog. These dogs are trained to respond to seizures by doing whatever it is the client wants the dog to do, for example, go get VNS magnet, meds, phone, another person, or just stay with the person. After living with the person with seizures for a while they start to sense them coming on and may alert you prior to the seizures; having a dog also tends to result in a decreased number of seizures, probably because the client feels safer and more comfortable having the dog around. Contact Paws With a Cause: www.pawswithacause.org if interested to get an application.
Check out the VNS magnet - I have seen this used in severe seizures and it helped. Also check out this implanted EEG device: http://neurogadget.com/2011/12/06/impla … safe/3342. I would recommend you get a second opinion on management of your seizures from a board-certified neurologist.
When I first came across this question it sparked interest in me. I am one who believes more in natural cures as opposed to the medical practice [DR.] , I am not saying that they are not needed but the remedies of days gone by have a lot to be desired.
Reishi mushrooms which have been in use for over 2000 years [some say 4000] have been known to reduce or cure the effects of seizures, convulsions, cancer, HIV.......it is worth investagating. Your question has inspired my next Hub, ...Be Well
