Epilepsy is a neurological disorder which is characterized by transmission of irregular electrical impulses by the brain cells. This leads to temporary malfunctioning of the other cells in the brain and leads to loss of consciousness.
Homeopathic treatment of epilepsy focuses on treating the root cause of the problem instead of simply suppressing the symptoms. Compared to conventional treatments, homeopathic cures do not have any side effect as they do not contain chemicals. The various homeopathic remedies for epilepsy are –
1)Bufo Rana: If the cause of epilepsy is self-abuse or self-excess, then Bufo rana can be an effective remedy. The seizures may start from your genitals, you may also suffer from convulsions during sexual intercourse.
2)Cicuta: Cicuta can be a very effective remedy if the convulsions lead to a temporary distorted body shape. The distortions usually involve bending of the spine, a blue face and locked jaws. It is also effective if there is a head injury along with seizures.
3)Artemisia Vulgaris: This treatment is used in seizures that happen frequently in a short time span. Strong emotions such as anger and fear
may trigger these seizures. Children are usually affected the most.
4)Stramonium: Stramonium is used in the treatment of seizures that are caused due to an exposure to a sudden bright light. Symptoms of jerking of the muscles in the upper body are seen.
5)Belladona: Belladona is recommended for cases where high fever accompanies a seizure. Jerking of both the upper and lower body occurs along with a rise in the body temperature. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.
