Epileptic Seizures

Epileptic Seizures

When I was 13 years old, I started fainting. I would experience several seconds of deja vu and then would pass out and remain unconscientous for several seconds. My parents took me to a doctor, who after an EEG and CAT scan, said that he found no cause for my problem and sent me on my way. So we tried a chiropractor, who found inverted vertebrae in my neck, but adjusting them didn’t stop the fainting. As I got older I would pass out more frequently, until it would occur every four to eight weeks.

Finally after 12 years, the problem was diagnosed by a neurologist as Petit Mal Epileptic Seizures. Again, EEG and MRI did not indicate that there was a problem, but the doctor put me on a medication called Tegretol and said that it would probably control the problem. Initially it did. However one day, I forgot to take my morning dose and as I was driving home from work on the freeway, I passed out. My car went off the freeway and crashed into an empty parked car. It was a miracle that I was the only person involved and that I only received minor injuries. After that I was more careful about taking my medication and did okay for 10 more years.

Then almost 4 years ago, all of a sudden I started having seizures again. My doctor increased my dose, and then changed the medication twice. The seizures continued, occurring every one to two months. After eight months, I was very frustrated with the help I was receiving I decided it was time to try something different. I could not drive (for the third time in my adult life) and I decided, I might as well take a risk in hopes of being able to be completely free of the problem and not have to depend on medication for the rest of my life.

My sister-in-law had told me about Neuromodulation. She had a different problem but had been greatly helped by Neuromodulation, so I thought I would give it a try. Healing came gradually, as I continued to have deja vu over the next 22 months but, with one exception, the seizures were not strong enough for me to loose conscientiousness. And they would occur further apart, generally every four months. Then they stopped altogether. It’s been nine months, and considering my history I feel safe to say that the problem is gone. After almost three years, I’m driving again and am so grateful!

Although it’s impossible to say that Neuromodulation was the sole reason why my seizures have stopped, I do believe that it was a key factor in the process that freed me of this problem. The idea that the body can heal itself when directed to do so makes sense to me and I believe that in my case, because of the directions it received, it was able to do just that.
