Default There IS a cure for Epilepsy.

Epsom Salts!!

After a lot of research I came across this recommendation years ago......
half a teaspoon of Epsom Salts in a little orange juice every morning...........epileptic fits GONE!!!



I recommended it to a friend who had grand mal fits EVERY day........from the first dose she didn't fit again, but three weeks later her doctor said he would strike her off his books if she continued with "this nonsense".

I used to visit parents with epileptic children and it always worked.

On the basisof this I contacted the epilepsy society and said I would visit to give a talk....they didn't want to know!!

I was invited to give a talk at a clinic locally, and the result was amazing. The results porove that it works.

Friends and family have tried it, and it doesn't fail.

WORTH CHECKING OUT?

Very interesting, Jualsy.

Extra magnesium can work wonders.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Yes, Interesting. Anyone know what type of magnesium is in epsom salts?

I would really like to know that this is true. It's a hard one to recommend to anyone with a seizure disorder who is on medication. Do you have any studies or other evidence?

O.K. I know how you feel. I read Adelle Davis's books and got the original information, then recommended it to a friend who was in a bad way daily with fits. It worked from the first dose....she didn't fit again! I tried it all over and every time it worked with babies, little children, teenagers, elderly, and finally my own grand daughter (24) agreed to take it after years of trying to persuade her.....and it worked. I have heard of nothing but the fact that it works, so I don't feel it's risky any more.

Whoever you are thinking of can carry on taking the medication if they want to, but that alone will be leading to other deficiencies re side effects etc. Its all personal choice.

Epsom Salts can be boutght on line...I believe its the best source of the magnesium required.

Well, it certainly isn't a protocol that is dangerous to add, even if someone is on seizure meds. But it might be scary for them to start reducing the meds and trust that it will work. But if someone has breakthrough seizures while on meds guess it would be pretty self evident in a short while. I don't know anyone with seizures right now, but this of course means that someone might be coming along pretty soon! Thanks for the tip. I have stored it.

Adelle Davis was pretty amazing.

It has never failed in my experience and is harmless. The children it worked on all had stunned comments from teachers who said they had improved considerably in the class and were learning much better etc......my friend went from having three grand mal fits a day to having none at all from the first dose!....Impressive!!

Reading Adelle Davis 35 years ago changed my life....I was always ill, and since then I think I have been to the doctor twice. I deal with all health problems via vitamins, and herbal treatments. Fantastic.

What is the reason for using the orange juice?? Can it be other juice or water? Also, is the 1/2 teaspoon for all weights and ages, or do you increase for more weight???

I was diagnosed quite recently and have some quite alarming seizures - certainly the full tonic clonic for around 12 minutes whilst being fully aware of what's happening was a good one..... Public transport's always fun!

I have recognised the benefits of orange juice, both as a way to avoid, or at least decrease the severity of, seizures (if you're lucky enough to get warning) and to assist in the recovery process. I've not heard of the epsom salts thing, but can certainly vouch for the benefits of orange juice in my circumstances. At work I tend to keep some nearby.

I have heard on other forums that orange or apple juice can reduce the efficacy of meds, but certainly don't have that problem with mine (Lamotrigine). Not sure if this is because of the med itself, me, or if it simply doesn't affect meds.

Having spoken to a doctor (ID, not Neurology), he wasn't aware of any studies into this, although I do know that OJ is the only way to bring someone down from an acid trip if they are having difficulties (I worked on the clubbing scene for 7 years) To me, this would indicate a neurological, or at least a mood stabilising effect, which would affect both conditions.

I'm going to bring it up at my next hospital session, so will let you know if my Neuro gives me good news on this or tells me I'm talking balls.

Orange juice is such a common food to so many people you would think that this would be common knowledge, its effect on seizures. I wonder if your seizures have anything to do with your blood sugar. Maybe there is enough magnesium in it to make a difference for some people.

Low magnesium levels have been found in epilepsy patients for many years but the medical professions insistence on drug use only has pushed it into the background.

Have you been to your next hospital session yet? I'm curious as to how your Neuro responds.....

Im 36, and epileptic, have been for 6/7 years .... i was put on Keppra 750 twice a day ... for 5/6 years I was able to drink and pretty much my only fits were me missing meals/tablets. That all changed around 11 months ago when it seems Keppra is not keeping me as seizure free as before. I fit in my sleep

Recentely I asked my "Epilepsy Nurse" re Magnesium after reading about it on the net. She denied all knowledge. Then contradicted herself 10 mins later admitting she had heard reports??? Most strange!!

Ive heard that as no company can patent Magnesium and make billions selling it for x years to the NHS no company is interested in clinical trials? Who knows?

Anyway after much net reading I have purchased some Pharma Nord Magnesium tablets and have commenced my clinical trial of one (me). I keep taking the Keppra, Ill take the magnesium

Maybe again Ill be able to drink a few glasses of wine, drink a few beers on Fri without thinking of whether ill fit 1 or 2 nights later in my sleep ? We shall see ...

Neurologist said "Dont Drink" but that to me is not a cure. Its a solution, however one which leaves me with no social life ... maybe Magnesium is the answer ?
