I don't know if I am posting my topic in the right category or not. do let me know please.
my very near and loved one is sufering from seizure problems, or to say doctors feel that he has seizures. about two months back he fainted and was hospitalized. MRI's, CatScan, ECG, EEG every thing available was done and with God's grace everything came out fine. doctors could not find anything serious in the brain. Blood Pressure and cholestrol levels were perfect too. now he is on medication(keppra 500mg) a day. in last month he has fainted twice luckily at home though. Don't know what is the reason behind this, doctors can't diagnose anything, but it is very dangerous that he faints. they have put him on medication just on symptoms. Some times while talking he just comes still for few moments and then he is normal. Can any one please help me in this case. I am sorry if I have made no sense in my concern.

Dear Sehaj Kaur Ji,

You have come to the best place to get some help on natural solutions for this problem. However, before beginning, it is important to understand that what is being provided is not alternative medicine, but complementary therapies to enhance the health of the individual at hand. One can not go against medical advice, and should continue with normal therapy as needed. However, that is not to say that medics will tell you about 'other' therapies that may assist you. There is real scientific evidence that suggests one can enhance their health with the right approach to diet, and using techniques such as meditation, yoga, and exercise to enhance health.

Where would you like to go from here?

Regards

Thank you so much for replying. yesterday only doctors told him that the recent report of EEG says that there is a little bit of abnormal activity behind the brain. which means is that for some reason sometimes the oxygen supply is temporarily cut in the brain and he falls unconscious. his right eye pupil is also swollen for some reason. even eye specialist can't find the reason for this. I would like to go with any good options you have for improvement on his health as you mentioned along with his medicine and tests.
Doctors have told him to cut down on his diet by half. if he is hungry then he should take fruits more.
Just to give you more details about him, he is a non-vegetarian and very impossible to convince for complete vegetarian diet and I on the hand am completely vegetarian.
Thank You once again,
Sehaj Kaur

Gurfateh,

Please continue with your doctor's recommendations, as at this particular juncture it is important to get discharged safely. Significant dietary changes aren't necessary, but it would be recommended to avoid foods that are particularly high in metals such as fish and their oils, as well as tap water. I will give a hint as to this recommendation, millions of thermometers are thrown into the trash each year, and the mercury from them leak into our water systems. It is important to begin by realizing that all food items should be realistically free of as many contaminants as possible. For water, it should be at this particular juncture as pure as possible. Foods should be considered also for the temperature they are cooked at. Toxic substances in our environments kill our brain cells, tobacco directly contributes as a risk factor to stroke and other neurological brain problems. Avoid second hand smoke, and other contaminants as well. Furthermore, if this individual is having seizures, research shows that a low carbohydrate may help. However, this means primarily reducing any and all white or processed carbs. Carbohydrates from fruits and vegetables is okay. I can not say with certainty that Organic is better than non-organic, but regardless wash your vegetables and fruit thoroughly. With non-tap water if possible. Specific vitamins and minerals can improve blood flow to the brain, but this would not be appropriate at this particular juncture. Brain healing can occur with specific meditations and exercises, but until the condition is discharged from acute care these may not be advisable at this time.

If you wish to continue, as this may need to be made private I can create a separate section for you, or discuss by message. If you wish all these messages be made private, please tell.

Thank you so much for your help. I would really appreciate if you can talk to me privately about this matter. Moreover he is not in the hospital any more. he was discharged from hospital after 3 days of his first incident of seizure which was 2 months back.
Thank you,
Sehaj Kaur
