Complete control of Myoclonic epilepsy, and helps reduce all seizures without any toxic medication.

Epilepsy is a autoimmune disease, triggered by vitamin deficiency, the most common cause is celiac disease associated deficiency causing epilepsy. So first read our celiac section and neurological diseases caused by celiac and then return here to read more

Introduction
  The word epilepsy is derived from the Greek word for "attack." People once thought that those with epilepsy were being visited by demons or gods.

Epilepsy is the most common brain disorder affecting 1% of the population. Only memory problems will surpass epilepsy in this centaury.

Few experiences match the drama of a convulsive seizure. A person having a severe seizure may cry out, fall to the floor unconscious, twitch or move uncontrollably, drool, or even lose bladder control. Within minutes, the attack is over, and the person regains consciousness but is exhausted and dazed. This is the image most people have when they hear the word epilepsy. However, this type of seizure -- a generalized tonic-clonic seizure -- is only one kind of epilepsy. There are many other kinds, each with a different set of symptoms.

What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a brain disorder in which nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain signal abnormally, causing strange sensations, emotions, and behavior, or sometimes convulsions , muscle spasms, and loss of consciousness. During a seizure, neurons may fire as many as 500 times a second, much faster than normal. In some people, this happens only occasionally; for others, it may happen up to hundreds of times a day.

More than 2 million people in the United States -- about 1 in 100 -- have experienced an unprovoked seizure or been diagnosed with epilepsy. For about 80 percent of those diagnosed with epilepsy, seizures can be controlled with modern medicines and surgical techniques.

In Pakistan the highest incidence of Epilepsy is seen in Kasur a distant suburb of Lahore. CIDPUSA did a evaluation and considers the highly contaminated ground water as a cause of epilepsy.

Epilepsy is not contagious and is not caused by mental illness or mental retardation. Some people with mental retardation may experience seizures, but seizures do not necessarily mean the person has or will develop mental impairment. Many people with epilepsy have normal or above-average intelligence. Famous people who are known to have epilepsy, the philosopher Socrates, the military general Napoleon, and the inventor of dynamite, Alfred Nobel, who established the Nobel Prize. Several Olympic medalists and other athletes also have had epilepsy.

Today epilepsy can be currently  cured! for some people it  eventually  naturally goes away. One study found that children with idiopathic epilepsy, or epilepsy with an unknown cause, had a 68 to 92 percent chance of becoming seizure-free by 20 years after their diagnosis.

What Causes Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a autoimmune disorder

. A Phenomenon, called kindling, occur in humans and is autoimmune. Means epilepsy in one are of the brain spreads to other similar areas due to inflammation.

In some cases, epilepsy may result from changes in non-neuronal brain cells called glia. These cells regulate concentrations of chemicals in the brain that can affect neuronal signaling.

Genetic Factors

Genes can be reversed to normal by Vitamin-D levels.

Other Disorders

In many cases, epilepsy develops as a result of brain damage from other disorders. For example, brain tumors, alcoholism, and Alzheimer's disease frequently lead to epilepsy because they alter the normal workings of the brain. Strokes, heart attacks, and other conditions that deprive the brain of oxygen also can cause epilepsy in some cases. About 32 percent of all cases of newly developed epilepsy in elderly people appears to be due to stroke, which reduces the supply of oxygen to brain cells. Meningitis, AIDS, viral encephalitis, and other infectious diseases can lead to epilepsy, as can hydrocephalus -- a condition in which excess fluid builds up in the brain. Epilepsy also can result from intolerance to wheat gluten (also known as celiac disease), or from a parasitic infection of the brain called neurocysticercosis.

Head Injury

In some cases, head injury can lead to seizures or epilepsy. Safety measures such as wearing seat belts in cars and using helmets when riding a motorcycle or playing competitive sports can protect people from epilepsy and other problems that result from head injury.
