Thank you for posting that. Also, one treatment for a severe asthmatic attack is an intravenous mag drip.

Thumbs up Magnesium

Don't know about the other two but I know from personal experience that Magnesium
keeps me from getting leg cramps in the calves of my legs.

Okay, ya'll (I'm a southern gal), I've had seizures for 21 years and have tried everything except Epsom Salts, which I find very interesting and will probably give it a try. Magnesium supplements had no effect on me. Orange, grapfruit and apple juices create seizures for some people (like me) because it blocks the absorption of certain meds and increases certain hormones like estrogen in women with catamenial seizures. EVERYONE, use caution when trying anything that your doctor doesn't know about AND anything your doctor does no about!!! Live well and be careful!!!

Hi walker, welcome to the forum! Thanks for sharing that info, I'll be looking forward to hearing about your results if you do decide to try the Epsom Salts.

Hi walker. If you don't respond to magnesium, you may not respond to epsom salts either. Maybe a nice warm bath of Epsom Salts will be better.

I suppose you know to avoid diet drinks and foods using that neurotoxin aspartame.

You might find this study interesting too. Spanish sage.

http://www.life-enhancement.com/arti...ate.asp?ID=947
Quote:
In many cultures, the sage family of herbs has been used traditionally for a number of neurological problems, including depression, epilepsy, and age-related memory loss. Based on this rich history of use, the UK researchers set out to explore the benefits of Spanish sage, and they asked a tantalizing question: Could young adults with normal cognitive function actually improve their memory following ingestion of this herb?
...
Patients participating in the trial were given one 50-l capsule of Spanish sage oil in the morning for the first week; 2 capsules (morning and evening, 100 l total) for the second week; and three capsules (morning, noon, and evening, 150 l total) for the third through sixth weeks.
Dalmation sage is another sage that could be used. It is the common cooking sage.

Nobody wants to hear of these natural cures because the drug companies want their money! I guess money is more important than peoples health nowadays...

I'd bet that there is a cure like this for almost every disease. But if it gets discovered, nobody finds out because everyone goes to doctors and doctors don't prescribe natural remedies because they are under the control of the drug companies! What a sick corrupt healthcare society we live in! It's pretty obvious after reading all my opinionated posts...why I don't let a doctor touch me!.....and I'm not blaming the doctors one bit! I'm blaming everyone who is pressuring them. They are being controlled by this nonsense, much of the time against their wishes!

This is an old post. I find it interesting that none of these people have reported back saying yay or nay on the magnesium for seizures.

I wish to try Epsom Salts as a cure for my epilepsy but to date dont see any confirmation from anyone who has tried it and been cured. Is there anyone out there who has been successful with this cure?? Please do post a confirmation to this cure.

Smile Epsom salts

I have no idea if this thread is still open but I'd like to post my experience of epsom salts.
First let me give you my background-I've been epileptic since 11 with grand mal seizures (puberty) I managed to go off my tablets at pregnancy which is where I found a distinct hormonal connection.

Unfortunately that hasn't lasted, but I am on an extremely low dose of valporate (200mg twice a day now). 10 years later and a move to a warmer climate I had a nasty turn (8 hours) in status epilepticus brought on by heat stoke.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have completely recovered.

Thirdly people on this forum should understand my views which are there is no cure for epilepsy-I believe I will always be epileptic, or be prone to having epileptic fits

So, anyway after reading a couple of threads-particularly Jualsy, I decided to try epsom salts orally (1/4 teaspoon twice a day). The results have been very favourable. I have slept much better and had less twitching (better sleep=higher seizure threshold after all) and my head which was previous quite tender from my experience in hospital and I had developed an over-sensitivity to noise has now stopped being sensitive.

My concentration has improved significantly and generally I feel much better. It's a little bit too soon to tell whether this will have any long effect on my grand mal fits but it certainly has helped and I have been impressed by its results. I think if your sleep is disturbed by epilepsy or you feel depressed or irritable, this is certainly a marvellous remedy. Scientific evidence for those interested: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1471674 (increase in seizure threshold) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11599780 (protection of brain tissues).

That' s interesting, and I'm sure this plant could be put to many medicinal uses-let's face it, every drug can be abused!

the Sacred Herb is a plant - not a drug!

as for abusing things, well, we humans are experts at that - from animals to people, and much more!

when I was working in the mental health field I worked with people who were addicted to cough medicine - lets make cough medicine illegal too!

not having a go at you llanarth, although it may appear so! I am not!
