Transcript of Epilepsy

Epilepsy What is ? Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes continued impulsive convulsions known as seizures that range in severity. Stephen My brother Stephen was diagnosed with Epilepsy when he was 3 years old. At his worst, Stephen was having more than 400 seizures a day.
Being on three different medications brought it down to about 100 a day. The doctors told my parents if they didn't do something quick,
he would be a vegetable in a
wheelchair by the time he was 15. The doctors recommended brain surgery after trying many medications. They seemed reluctant to mention other treatments. Other Treatments Doctors are Reluctant To share with their patients -The Ketogenic Diet
-Yoga
-Aerobic Exercise
-Music Therapy
-Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
-Acupuncture

by too many neurons being
released, resulting in a seizure. Epilepsy can affect
anyone at any age. Some people who suffer from

strict diet for 3.5 years until he
was eventually weaned off it. Stephen is now 15 and
still completely seizure-free
