Default Is there natural cure for seizure? TBI (traumatic brain injury)

Hi,
What if some one had TBI of severe level (was in comma for 4 days after the accident)
And now needs to take drug called Phenytoin regularly to stop oneself from getting seizures. There seems to be no cure…but I hear stories of seizures being cured with many different methods.

I do not know how Phenytoin exactly works
But it reduces the activity of the brain to avoid seizures
Personally, I do not like this drug. I’d rather find an alternative and natural medicine or cure.
The side effect of Phenytoin includes
Decreased coordination
Shaking of hands
Slowed thinking and movement
Memory problems
Poor concentration

This drug sounds like turning a human being into a plant slowly to avoid seizures…

I have done my homework, a little, and it seems the type of seizure is partial seizure,
I have read articles of doses of vitamins and minerals (I don’t exactly know what kind of minerals) curing or reducing the occurrence of the seizure.

If there is cure for Cancer… I believe some where there is cure for seizure, or at least natural way to reduce the occurrence of the seizure.
I m looking at Miracle Mineral supplement as possible resource to reduce seizures
I am also looking at hemp to be also worthy element to reduce the illness.
However I am not a health science student.

Any information, resource or names of some of trust worthy doctors will be helpful

Thank You

Another name for Phenytoin is Dilantin - it is for epilepsy to stop seizures. The problem is is someone has a seizure they can actually die from them depending on where they are and what they are doing and if anyone is around to help them or not. Please remember this before discarding the medication. You could try a chinese herbalist doctor or someone, but as I said remember the above.

I'm not optimistic about cures for epileptic seizures. It might be that as time progresses after the accident they subside. But I am afraid you're stuck with it. It's neurological damage, not a psychological trauma.

Other than that here is a yahoo question asking the exact same question.
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...2011147AANOsY8
Someone even suggests meditation. Maybe you will find something there..

I would however recommend that you discuss every thing you might want to try out with your doctor first. Anti epileptic medication is not something you should just mess around with. There are some alternative medications that you could try. Each person responds differently to medication so it might be that you have no side effects from another medication.

I'm not sure of the situation here but I do know my Dad was able to lower his medicated drugs to zero with Boswellia in High Doses. Please find a good nutrition specialist or homepath to discuss these things. I'm not a specialist.

There is a brain Specialist in America I think here name was Janice Wallis but I can't find any information on her now.

My thoughts are with you finding a natural solution.

The old-school cure for seizure was an exorcism... this is one of those cases where modern medicine has some viable solutions, but generally this involves a whole cocktail of anti-convulsant chemicals. If the brain area that triggers seizure can be identified, sometimes it can be removed for a permenant reduction in seizures or even for a cure.

The specific system that causes a seizure tends to be quite different from person to person, so I would be wary about anyone saying that they have a 'universal antidote'. Today, doctors medicate seizures basically by trial-and-error pill regimens. Good luck in finding what you seek!

Don't most seizure medications have some bella donna in them? I'm not positive about the actual effects of this ingredient, but it is natural.

how about using Hemi-Sync (by the monroe institute)...
"support stroke recovery" might be a useful programme..
but better ask the institute in Faber Virginia first.

Hey this week someone accidentally cured aids. Don't stop looking and don't stop trying. We're going into the period where many things will change. Visualize the change. But until then make the best of a difficult situation. You cannot change something you do not accept to be true now.

Hi,
i've researched more, but what do you think of "Andrews-Reiter" 's seizure controling program, it doesn't "cure" it but it makes u control ur seizure to such a state that u no longer need medication or minimize the medication.

check these links
Andrews-Reiter's home page
http://www.andrewsreiter.com/

one story related to it
http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=58204

Thank You, also, i dont plan to give up lol, I think it's harder to give up...

Default Re: Is there natural cure for seizure? TBI (traumatic brain injury)

Hello NKA,

I don't know if this will help you or not, but I thought I would mention it anyways.

A few years ago I started having episodes that resembled seizures, but that's not really what it was. One doc said it was, and another said I was fainting, but I came to find out on my own that I was having strokes of some sort. Not the normal kind caused by blood clots, but rather they came about because I had a couple IPL treatments done for hair removal. Really stupid idea...

In essence, this therapy totally shocked my body and upset my electrical balance. It caused me to have these strange episodes where I would black out (similar to fainting) but when I would come to, I couldn't move or speak for several minutes afterward. It was certainly not simply fainting spells, but it wasn't seizures either. {I had many many other neurological problems as well, like pressure in my spinal fluid, intense headaches and dizziness, among other things.} I came to find out thru muscle testing and also a diagnosis on a QXCI biofeedback machine that I was having strokes. They got so bad that by June of this year I was having about 2 a week and they were lasting longer each time. I thought I was going to die at any time. In desperation, I begged for an answer.

Finally, I came across a website that does work with your DNA. The founder, Sol, was quite sick when he finally cured himself by using different tones from the Solfeggio scale to heal himself. He and his partner now offer this service long distance for people. There are 3 parts to it, but I only purchased and had done the first part (potentiation). Namely because at the time, I didn't know if it would work and I didn't know if I would still be alive long enough to have the other two parts done. I was taking a shot in the dark. I had nothing left to lose though, other than my money. Either it would work, or it wouldn't and I would be dead in a couple weeks from the 'ultimate' stroke, since small TIA's lead up to a big stroke eventually.

Maybe you could contact these people to see if they can help you. I know that they saved my life. Since the time that I had my session done, I have not had another stroke. I have had a few things that felt weird, but I think it was my body adjusting to the tones or something. As of right now I feel pretty good. The sealing of the fragmentary body takes 5 months, but all told it takes 9 months to complete, though the session itself is just a one time thing. It's a long-distance thing, so you don't have to travel anywhere.

Might I also suggest that you find someone locally who has a QXCI machine. It may be of help to you, as well, or instead of the dna thing. They hook you up to their computer and find out what's wrong with you thru the software. It works through your subconscious mind. It essentially tells the computer what's wrong with you. The biofeedback part can correct many things, but I'm unsure whether it can help with epilepsy. It's worth researching, though. It's approximately the same price as the dna regeneration. I must say, however, that the biofeedback did not make the episodes stop.

Here's the link to the people who saved my life. I wouldn't be here now if it weren't for them. Again, I don't know if they can help with your problem, but it's worth asking at least. http://www.phoenixregenetics.org/

Best of luck to you. I hope that you feel better soon and find the answers you need.

Default Re: Is there natural cure for seizure? TBI (traumatic brain injury)

I am a nurse and medic, Reike certified, so here's my two cents. The problem with TBI seizures is the brain is physically damaged. An injured or irritable section of the brain can fire irregularly due to the damage. These seizures usually present and are different than epilepsy seizures. They are different in origin than nontrauma induced seizures, although controlled the same due to lack of anything better in Western medicine. Dilantin helps because it slows the neurons, or calms the damaged part of the brain. Unfortunately it calms all the brain down, hence side effects. I have a friend who was told by his medical doctor to smoke marijuana when he gets his 'feeling' that a seizure is coming on. Pot slows neuron firing also. Can't say I recommend that, but it is a natural method. Probably safer than dilantin! Most drugs today are poison in my book. If you can find an alternative, give it a try. Maybe you can tolerate a low level dilantin dose without side efffects and be just as well off. Some people with frequent severe seizures have that bad piece of their brain electrically fried by a surgeon. Little radical, but these people are so bad they can not function in normal life. Good luck either way. Sorry, but I know of no other method.

According to Hulda Clark's book "The Cure for all diseases" page 230

" Seizures are always caused by tiny Ascaris larvae in the brain."

Use a frequency generator set to 408 KHz, or use a Hulda Clark
zapper to kill the buggers. MMS will kill this larvae too.

My advice? not a single person here on Avalon should give any advice to you about home help for such a severe brain injury.

You are taking a potent, patient specific dosed medication for a reason - and stopping your medication to try some thing else on a whim could kill you or cause a seizure of such severity that you may not recover.

I am advising you to go to your Dr, sit down and get reffered to a neuro specialist and talk it over with them - they may even try other medications if you present the side effects you are having.

Default Re: Is there natural cure for seizure? TBI (traumatic brain injury)

Yes, I'd be very cautious about any home remedies. But there is nothing wrong with asking others for help finding options doctors available to you may not know about. You could then insist that your doctor conference with a one of kind doctor in another part of the world.

I'd be even more cautious about only seeking care from the PharmaCartel controlled western allopathic medical system that has very little to offer other than pharma drugs and surgergy. I'm a Medical Technologist who bugged outta working for that system.

Now I spend a lot of time researching under keywords such as "alternative."

It helps to know your location and if can afford to travel, or if you are stuck with whatever care you can find locally. I could find a dozen or more referrals such as this one.-

http://handle.org/ - Offices in London, Israel, and Washington state, USA, and you can pay for a therapist to come to your location. Not stated in the description below - they do also deal with traumatic brain injury cases.

"The HANDLE Institute provides an effective, non-drug alternative for identifying and treating most neurodevelopmental disorders across the lifespan including Autism, ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia and Tourette's Syndrome. HANDLE incorporates research and techniques from many disciplines. It includes principles and perspectives from medicine, rehabilitation, psychology, education and nutrition. It is founded on an interactive, developmental model of human functioning. The HANDLE Institute International, LLC offers clinical services, community information, and professional training programs."

The brain is incredibly "plastic" and moldable. This is done by laying down new neural pathways through physical exercises given to you by a specialist in the field of kinesiology.
There are many other ways, some already mentioned here - write to me at karen@projectavalon.net for more info.

Just a few days ago, I had a hard-copy in my hands that talked about a diet that helps control epilepsy in children, something about very high fat - dang I am going to have to sift through the mound of papers I've touched in the last week and see if I can find it because that is all I remember, and I really want to be able to pull that one out when people ask for help.

It's so sad - (at least in the USA) most medical care covered by insurance plans is limited to drugs and surgery from doctors who receive their training from a system devised by the PharmaCartel. All other medical systems and doctors who step outside the box are systematically destroyed. I could write an encyclopedic-sized practitioner directory to outside the box medical care - if someone could build the on-line program to make it searchable by every parameter. I could put 20 or more people to work to sort and input the information as fast as I could find it. We'd need someone good at obtaining funding. It's a grand vision ...

None of the above are traumatic brain injuries. They are neurophsyiological defects and/or chemical imbalances - not a healthy brain that has undergone a susbtantial injury and gone from healthy to damages in adulthood.

The seizures associated with TBI are not to be messed with, and if you stop taking that medication even with the best Drs in the world, you run an almost 100% risk of suffering a potential catastrophic episode.

Neuroscientists and neuro Drs would of worked long and hard to make you as well as they could - do not throw it away by chasing shadows through corn fields thinking your medicine is not good enough. Its not perfect, there may be other drugs to take if your suffering side effects, but only explore that avenue with a Dr coming along step by step with you.

As I stated above the quoted blurb, the Handle Institute does also help people with traumatic brain injury. The website is one of those where I cannot provide a direct link to that specific page.
http://handle.org/index2.html
Link to Traumatic Brain Injury is near the bottom on the left.

NKA has clearly stated they will not just willy nilly go off the medication, but will make sure to get a doctor consult.

How has HANDLE benefited others?
M. Hern, a Traumatic Brain Injury survivor, relates: “Before I was evaluated by HANDLE, I felt as though I were a square peg being put through a round hole.... As hard as I tried, I could not fit or achieve .... Typically, my difficulties were viewed as psychological in nature. It was as though I spoke a different language; and indeed that was the case. HANDLE was the ‘interpreter,’ and provided me with the key and the pathway toward becoming functional again. I am so eternally grateful to be out of the abyss, and for HANDLE’s expertise.”

There is no specific mention on seizures, but a simple contact would reveal if Handle has any non-drug resources for that or not.

Dr. Amen Clinics deal in Traumatic Brain Injury, plus are very well aware of natural treatments. Clinics are located in the USA - CA, WA, VA.

An inquiry would reveal if they could help.

http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/
You could contact Dr. Blaylock about the possibility that his Brain Repair Supplements could help you lower the medication dose. Egg is very correct, don't try anything without help from well-trained doctor.

"Dr. Blaylock was one of the first neurosurgeons to utilize high-intensity nutritional supplementation in craniocerebral trauma patients, which met with great success."

"For the past 25 years he has practiced neurosurgery in addition to having a nutritional practice. He recently retired from both practices to devote full time to nutritional studies and research. " But he could probably give you an amazing referral!

The rest is a quote from:
http://www.campaignfortruth.com/Eclu...20rebuttal.htm

I am a board-certified neurosurgeon, retired clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery, visiting professor of biology at Belhaven College and have written over 30 papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. I serve on the editorial board of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons and the Journal of the American Nutriceutical Association.

My recent papers on the connection between excitotoxicity and fluoride neurotoxiocity, and autism and the Gulf War Syndrome have received praise from leading authorities in each of these areas of research. I am the co-developer of one of the most commonly used methods for removal of intraventricular meningiomas, for which I am given credit in all major neurosurgical texts, along with my mentor Ludwig G, Kempe, one of the most famous names in neurosurgery.

I have written three chapters in three medical textbooks as well as three nutrition books for the lay public, one of which you quoted, citing me as an expert in the field. I also do extensive study in the field of excitotoxicity.

Default Re: Is there natural cure for seizure? TBI (traumatic brain injury)

Speaking of Dr. Blaylock, if you use any diet or aspartame/Nutrasweet products, that can add to the seizure potential. Every common brand of gum contains one or more chemical sweeteners that can seriously mess with your health.

If you partake of these you could work with your doctor to abstain and see if you can lower your dose of meds.

Edit:
MSG is an excitotoxin and is added to prepared foods under dozens of trick names. Eat fresh, natural, organic foods as much as possible.

Next edit:
Eat right to reduce the risk of more brain damage from degenerative changes.
