Epilepsy Treatement With Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, and Aromatherapy,Quantum Brain Healing often addresses addition disorders along with seizures and other diseases. There are very high levels of alcoholism in families of epilepsy patients. There is clear evidence that even one drink of alcohol can trigger an epileptic seizure for some people. There is also a high incidence of constipation for many people with epilepsy. This allows toxins to build up in the colon which may trigger epileptic seizures. A colon cleanse, enema, high fiber diet, and fiber supplement can reduce the likelihood of this event.
The use organic products and organic food is very important. Other areas of importance include minimizing toxic household cleaning items and improving air quality with an ionizing household air filter. Focus on avoiding commonly encountered pesticides such as dieldrin, lindane and the pyrethroids which interfere with the brain's electrical activity of the brain.
Heavy metal toxins such as lead, mercury, cadmium, titanium, and aluminum interfere with proper nerve function and can cause seizures or convulsions. Dental amalgam contains mercury which crosses the blood brain barrier. This alters brain activity and neurotransmitters levels. Research studies show that epilepsy can improve after removal of dental amalgam.
Quantum Brain Healing utilizes vagal nerve stimulation, acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, and electro-acupuncture to treat brain inflammation.
Dr Tim Betts at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England researched using aromatherapy to help to control epilepsy. People with seizures that begin with a warning may be able to breathe in the scent of the aromatic oils at the start of the warning and reduce the likelihood or severity of an epileptic seizure. This should be carefully done under the guidance of a professional due to the fact that some essential oils can trigger seizures. The essential oils to be avoided by those with epilepsy include wormwood, sage, rosemary, hyssop, and fennel.
