Treatment For Seizures Without Drugs
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many things that you can do to prevent the onset of a seizure that don't involved drugs. If you have been diagnosed with epilepsy and they did not determine the cause of the seizure, as is often the case, the doctors are going to expect that you will be on anticonvulsants for the rest of your life. This is an awful thing to do to a person. Anticonvulsants have terrible side effects and they build up in your system. You will be dealing with the side effects for years as your body works to detoxify.

What are some simple things that you can do? Start listening to Mozart. I know, it sounds simple. However the complexity of Mozart reduces seizure activity in your brain by 30 percent by putting it in a theta state. When your brain is in this alert state, the chances of a seizure decrease dramatically.

Ensure that you are getting enough sleep. Sleep deprivation for me was a seizure trigger. If I did not have enough sleep the previous night, sometimes I would ahve a seizure regardless of it I took my medication. Your body needs the proper amount of sleep in order to function well. Also, many seizures occur within the few hours of awakening when your brain waves are changing from the sleep state to the alert state.

Get the right nutrition. This is very important as some seizures may be due to nutritional deficiencies. I am not a nutritionist, but have read that vitamin E will improve the effectiveness of seizures. I also have read that seizure medications block the absorbtion of calcium. Make sure that you get enough vitamin E and supplement with a natural source of calcium like coral calcium. Proper nutrients ensure proper body function. Therefore, you will decrease your chances of having seizures if your body is in balance.

I love alternative treatments for epilepsy. Seeing an acupuncturist will help improve the blood circulation and remove any energy blockages. When you have good blood circulation, many health problems disappear. It is wonderful. Acupuncture is good for that as well as acupressure for home use. They get the blood flowing to the brain and that alone can reduce the number of seizures that you have. Studies in Germany have shown acupuncture to be effective in treating epilepsy.

I am also a fan of far infrared therapy to help heal your body. Far infrared saunas have proven to help improve my circulation and have improved my skin tone. They also eliminate cramps very quickly, so I know that they are improving the blood flow within my body. Try out some of these alternatives to medication as part of your treatment for epilepsy. You will be amazed that they work.
