In 2004 I then for the second time in my life had a seizure, while the first one happened 39 years earlier, way back in 1975, a year after a brain accident in the traffic; but without drugs after the seizure in 1975. And then during the years from 2004 to 2014 I bought 10 books especially about epilepsy, as seizures then started to repeat after the seizure in 2004, with many months between them. But actually, I then believed, and still believe that’s caused by stress, which I warned about to a doctor ¾ of a year before the seizure in 2004, but the doctors here in Chiang Mai don’t know about stress. Besides the epilepsy books bought since 2003, when then starting to living here in Thailand I among bought books have bought a bit more than 400 health/doctor books, as missing libraries.
But after now reading this book again, I find that it’s probably the best book I owe concerning epilepsy, this because when compares to my other books it actual covers the widest aspect about epilepsy, and by this being the most helpful first hand book about epilepsy. Besides as it’s written by a patient wanting to get most possibly knowledge about her epileptic problem.
For example, in the book there are interesting writings about the Ketogenic diets, concerning which I have nothing in the other books. And then after on the sides 176 - 177 reading about acupuncture, I now am speculating about if I should try this. Because back in 1996 I suddenly a day woke up with paint in my left knee and nearly couldn’t walk, and this without doubt caused by an ice skating accident back in 1963 which then caused 3 times in hospital. And then by an accident my new doctor probably was the first one in Denmark who also had been educated in acupuncture; in Paris. So two times to her, and never pain since then. And now living in Thailand we have many persons educated in acupuncture.
And the book of course also comes with good information about drugs used against epilepsy, but of course there have come more new drugs since when the book was printed. But concerning the drugs she tells that after her first seizure, as the result of falling of a horse 6 year earlier, the drugs which she then got made her tiered and sleepy. The same for me as the result of the 2 drugs which a doctor gave me 2 weeks ago, which destroyed my thinking and made me sleep 10 hours, so I stopped taking these drugs, and then instead getting the magnesium, zinc, and E vitamin which I had been missing a few weeks before the accident. And where she also in the book tells about the importance of these minerals and the vitamin, besides others.
In the chapter “Foods That Harm”, she among other warms against alcohol and sugar. And after a motorcycle accident in 2008 as result of seizure, and thereby destroying my right arm, I in another book found that a doctor back in 1976 came with a report telling about how alcohol increases the chance on seizures, and highest 18 -24 hours later. And I then found that all of my seizures actually had been the results of around 4 bears by parties 1 or 2 days before the seizures. But before 2004 this newer happened, so aging in the connection with stress, as I believe, but the doctors don’t understand.
But again a good book among other as it also tells about naturally treating, as we know that most doctors only have learned to use drugs or surgeries, and nothing about vitamins, minerals, and herbs, which has no side problems as all of the drugs, as they not are naturals.
Little did I know that there a number of things I can do to improve my condition on my own in addition to taking my pills. I do not have all day to list them but if you want to learn for yourself take a few hours of your life and read this book.
It can improve your condition dramatically so apply them. If you want to continue on without hope and having seizures don't bother. Just go to your doctor every 6 months and keep taking your pills so you have as few as possible.
If you don't have your health you don't have anything. If you would like to buy the supplements listed in this book (which are all safe) please go to a website by Puritan's Pride. Puritan's Pride is THE BEST and LEAST EXPENSIVE place to buy all natural supplements by far.
Go to google and type in DR BALCH EPILEPSY if you want to buy an all in one natural pill which is not as effective.
