Seizures and convulsions can be partly caused by toxicity from vaccinations, aspartame and gluten. There may be deficiencies in vitamin D3, vitamin E, magnesium or manganese due to a poor diet or side effects of medication. Stress, trauma and emotional problems can also be contributing factors. This condition is also more likely to occur if someone has had a brain trauma from an infection, tumour, stroke or injury. A genetic link is possible, as epilepsy sufferers often have a relative who also has the condition. Triggers for a seizure can include tiredness, drinking alcohol, taking drugs and menstruation.
Epilepsy causes frequent bursts of electrical activity in the brain known as seizures. These can start even when a person is asleep and may only last a few seconds or minutes. Fits can involve shaking and jerky body movements that can’t be controlled and sometimes collapsing or loss of consciousness. Patients who lose consciousness may not remember what has happened when they wake up. The person may become stiff or lose awareness of what is going on around them. There may be a tingling feeling in the limbs or a strange feeling in the stomach.
- Simple partial (focal) seizures: These can be a warning of another type of seizure and may involve stiffness, twitching or tingling and strange sensations, smells and tastes.
- Complex partial (focal) seizures: This causes people to be unaware of their surroundings and randomly move parts of the body.
- Tonic-clonic seizures: In the tonic stage a person becomes unconscious and stiff; the clonic stage cause loss of bladder control and involuntary limb movements. Both of these stages can occur together or in isolation.
- Absences: An absence seizure causes a person to lose awareness of what is happening around them and they may appear to be daydreaming and make slight movements.
- Myoclonic seizures: This is where all or part of the body suddenly moves involuntarily, similar to an electric shock.
- Atonic seizures: These may cause a person to fall over as all of their muscles suddenly relax.
- Status epilepticus: This type is where a seizure lasts a long time or a person suffers a series of seizures without being conscious in-between.

Magnesium injections can quickly help to ease convulsions and analysing what deficiencies are present, and correcting them, will help to avoid future fits. Trying to avoid situations that are likely to cause a seizure will help to reduce their occurrence. Avoiding foods that are likely to trigger fits, such as wheat and sugary drinks with artificial sweeteners, is a key preventative measure. It also helps to consume a balanced diet containing both raw and fermented vegetables and beneficial fats in order to naturally get enough vitamins and minerals. Keeping well hydrated is vital and enough salt must be regularly consumed. Having a proper sleep pattern is also important. The standard conventional treatment consists of anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) which should be reviewed regularly to make sure that the treatment is effective. In some cases, a seizure-controlling electrical device may be implanted into the body or the affected portion of brain may be removed through surgery. Reducing work load and getting more exercise and relaxation may help some people to avoid seizures, especially if these tend to be triggered by stress. It is also important to take measures to reduce the damage caused by seizures by taking safety precautions around the home; these may include installing a smoke detector, using guards on heaters and eliminating trip hazards.
Experiences and case studies
A woman brought her 3-month-old son for treatment after he had been taken to hospital with infantile spasms and been put onto strong anti-epileptic drugs. Amalgam stress was treated, since the mother had many fillings. When the medication had to be reduced to a third due to a low blood count, doctors thought that the seizures would be severe. However, after having had bioresonance treatment, the convulsive attacks did not occur and two years later, the boy didn’t need to take any medication and was developing well.
