Creating Waves of Awareness
Epilepsy (from the Greek επιληψία /epili΄psia/ ) is a common chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. These seizures are transient signs and/or symptoms of abnormal, excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. About 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, with almost 90% of these people being in developing countries. Epilepsy is more likely to occur in young children or people over the age of 65 years; however it can occur at any time. Epilepsy is usually controlled, but not cured, with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases. However, over 30% of people with epilepsy do not have seizure control even with the best available medications. Not all epilepsy syndromes are lifelong – some forms are confined to particular stages of childhood. Epilepsy should not be understood as a single disorder, but rather as a group of syndromes with vastly divergent symptoms but all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain.

During acute episode the patient should be treated by symptomatic medicine followed by anti miasmatic constitutional medicine
A.GRAND MOL AND PETITMOL:
The bick cause of the seizuse is due to inappropriate electrical activity in the brain.lack of proper functioninl or in coordinated functions of brain cells.
Manifestation of psora or psyco psora
B.COMPLEX PARTIAL SIZEURE;
syco syphillis or complex miasmatic state
C.ELEMENTARY PARTIAL JACKSONIAN OR ROLANDIC SIZEURE;
D.SEIZURE FOLLOWING AN INJURY:
Miasmatic anameresis is not necessary for such cases expecting if and when the latest state flares up due to psora
E.SEIZURE DUE TO METABOLIC DISORDER:
Psora or sycosis
F.SEIZURE DUE TO VASCULAR DISEASE:
G.SEIZURE DUE TO TUMOR:
H.SEIZURE DUE TO PARISATIC DISEASE:
Psora is the basic cause but at times
A mixed miasmatic state may be responsible .
