Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will live on earth before the year runs out. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HIV) for the past 3 years now; I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this blessed day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR Camala helped someone in curing his HIV disease, quickly I copied his email which is dr.camalahivaidscure@yahoo.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( dr.camalahivaidscure@yahoo.com ) PHONE/WHATS APP : +2349055637784

there are close to 200 diseases and conditions that cause seizurs and multiple types of seizure. some are curable most are only manageable. first find out teh actual cause of the seizure before trying to find out if there is a cure/treatment. if it truely epilepsy then no there is no cure. true epileptics require dily medication for life to control the frequency of the seizures for life. my sister is epileptic as is my mother

I AGREE WITH WHAT KX SAID.I DONT BELIEVE IN URINE THERAPY,I HAVE READ SOMEWHERE THAT IT HAS A SPIRITUAL UNDERTONE.THERE IS NO MEDICAL BASIS FOR IT.

ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST ANYWAY.

WHAT I WANT TO SUGGEST TO U MIGHT LOOK TOO SIMPLE,JUST AS BATHING IN SILOAM POOL BUT I KNOW IT HAS HELPED A LOT OF CONDITIONS.

LET YOUR SISTER TAKE ENOUGH WATER AND FRUITS AND WATER RICH FOODS YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT THE RESULTS OF THIS SIMPLE SOLUTION.

ALL THESE DRUGS MIGHT NOT HELP EVENTUALLY.I DONT WANT TO START CONFINCING YOU ABOUT THE EFFICACY OF THIS SOLUTION . A WORD IS ENOUGH.ALL THE BEST.

Being a chronic illness, seizures could be effectively managed medically with medications such as Vigabatrin, Clobazam, Clonazepam and EPILIM 100/200mg about 300mg daily.  Your GP could help in reviewing these medications for you.  However, in severe cases,  measures such as neuro-surgery could also be considered but, this could be quite life threatening so think hard before you take such an option.  Good luck!

Try all the suggestions given to you, especially the urine therapy, my Gradma (late) once told me about its power.

Finally, I do believe in the power of Prayer, God is the Omniscience.

No,although theres ongoing research,stimulating certain

parts of the brain so to cease seizures.For the moment

I think drug therapy is the best way to go,your neurologist

or family physician would be the one to ask.

And try going to www.epilepsy.com. That community would be a big help.

pls let a specialist investigate the origin(brain scans) and pinpoint the triggers that set off the seizures.nutrition goes a long way too.

Knowing the triggers is very important as it helps reduce the occurrence and manage it better.the drugs do work and the sufferer will be gradually weaned from the drug depending on the investigation carried out abt the causes of the seizures.

Somebody says it cannot be cured, that is a total lie cos i have a cuz that have not had a seizure in almost 10 yrs now.yeah its unbelievable bt i guess God has a hand in it.

Treatment Overview

Treatment can reduce or prevent seizures in most people who have epilepsy, which can improve the quality of your life. Controlling your epilepsy also lowers the risk of falling and other complications that can happen when you have a seizure.

First your doctor will determine what type of epilepsy and what kinds of seizures you have. Treatment that controls one kind of seizure may have no effect on other kinds. Your doctor will also consider your age, health, and lifestyle when planning your treatment.

It may take time for you and your doctor to find the right combination, schedule, and dosage of medicines to manage your epilepsy. The goal is to prevent seizures while causing as few unwanted side effects as possible. With the help of your doctor, you can weigh the benefits of a particular treatment against its drawbacks, including side effects, health risks, and cost.

After you and your doctor figure out the most effective treatment for you, it is important that you follow your treatment exactly as prescribed.

Initial treatment

Initial treatment for epilepsy depends on the severity, frequency, and type of seizures and whether a cause for your condition has been identified. Medicine is the first and most common approach. Antiepileptic medicines do not cure epilepsy, but they help prevent seizures in well over half of the people who take them. 1

Medicines that may be used first to treat epileptic seizures include:

Carbamazepine (Tegretol, Carbatrol).

Ethosuximide (Zarontin), for absence seizures only.

Topiramate (Topamax).

Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal).

Phenytoin (Dilantin, Phenytek) or fosphenytoin (Cerebyx).

Valproic acid or divalproex sodium (Depakene, Depakote).

Phenobarbital (Luminal Sodium, Solfoton). Phenobarbital is a first-lineOngoing treatment

If epileptic seizures continue even though you are being treated, additional or other antiepileptic medicines may be tried, including:

Felbamate (Felbatol).

Gabapentin (Neurontin).

Lamotrigine (Lamictal).

Levetiracetam (Keppra).

Tiagabine (Gabitril).

Topiramate (Topamax).

Zonisamide (Zonegran).

Benzodiazepines (for example, Diastat, Tranxene, Valium).

Phenobarbital (Luminal Sodium, Solfoton). Phenobarbital is a first-line medicine for newborns.

Primidone (Mysoline). The body converts primidone into phenobarbital.

Pregabalin (Lyrica). This medicine is intended to be used along with other antiseizure medicine.

Lacosamide (Vimpat). This medicine can be used along with other antiseizure medicine to treat partial seizures.

Rufinamide (Banzel). This medicine can be used along with other antiseizure medicine to treat seizures

When I first saw this thread I could nt bring myself to contribute,simply

because am in tears even as i type.

All the same,I ll give u the little info i know about dat disease.

Its the single most difficult condition i ve witnessed.

I lived with a sufferer for over 23yrs.

The whole family was in constant tears all the while.

Theres nothing we did nt try.

Some people recommend urine here.

Sis,as demeaning as taking ones unrine could be,i tell u what,it did not work for my uncle's fits.

I pray God it works for ur sis though.

I personally took my guy to huge christain gatherings,to God be d glory it was nt his opportunity to be healed.

He was on some seroius medications.Some costing over 6k,at first d fits reduced.

But shockingly,even while he was on drugs,after sometime,he experienced unprecented and hugely

nauseating fits.My verdict,the drugs,in d long run,did more harm than good.

All forms of native,just name the city and i tell u all the native docs made some cool pays

over 23yrs while my man was suffering.

My advice.

Give ur sis all d love and support.

Although i got to know of the usefulness of ground nutmeg mixed with honey (maybe it relates to the katogenic stuff dat someone mentioned here,

i dont know) but we never got to try it out with my uncle.

Ultimately,there is nothing God cannot do.While u experiment with all the help and tips u get,believe God will intervene.

The sufferers never wished to have it but,they just find demselves in it.

Like i said,show love and understanding to ur sis,

My own uncle is gone.His going was made most painful by the way he did.

I wish u and ur sis better luck in finding a cure.

Goodluck.

Hi Jodina

For you to even start seeking advise on this forum, buffles me. I really sympathise with you coz is shows you are very desperate to get some help for your sister. You need to seek help ferom professionals (specialists), not any doctor like a GP. Seizures come in different forms and the medication also differs. She needs to go for brain scans and all that for the doctor to determine whats kind of seizure she suffer from, then they take it from there. If there jis no improvement from the doc attending to her now, ypu try other doctors. Please do not look for advise from Nairaland "Doctors". All what they are telling you is hogwash. If your family can afford try coming down here in Mzansi (south Africa). We have excellent doctors. Good luck

Please do place her on URINE therapy, she should do it with water and fruits without taking in any soild food. morning, everning and night.

while doing taking the urine she should stay for at least 1 hr 30mins befor taking in fruit or water

she should consume all the urine she pass out, especially her morning urine for the period of 2months then she will be alright.

it is not easy to do but if one try doing it, it has cure for over 75 disease you can think off

for more info contact me through: senatoruwem@yahoo.com

THE PRODUCTS FOR SEIZURE/ EPILEPSY ARE AS FOLLOWS:

1) Aloe vera gel liquid drink

2) Ginkgo plus tablets

3) Garlic/Thyme tablets

4) Bee pollen tablets

5)Aloe blossom tea

All these are not drugs but food supplement (in liquid and tablet form) from FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS LTD from USA with offices in Nigeria and many countries. They are not found in supermarkets, Retail shops or pharmacy shops but you can buy directly from the company or from their distributors like me. Even if you are buying from the company, the distributor has to introduce you to them to enable the company to pay commission to the person for introducing a customer to them. The advantage to the buyer is that he will buy at the control price which is far lesser than the distributor,s price.

@jodina - It is very easy to achieve a Ketogenic diet. All you have to do is restrict the intakes of any Carbohydrate or Sugars(inc Fruit sugars) to an absolute minimum, or cut out completely. Increase the consumption of Proteins and Fats in the diet to compensate for the loss of calories from the carbs, and to maintain any bodily repair functions.

It is similar to the Atkins diet, but not the same. If you can get hold of an oil called MCT Oil (Medium Chain Triglyceride), then do so. The oil contains medium chain triglycerides that have been shown be more ketogenic than normal dietary fats. If not, then dietary fats will suffice. Fasting(No food, only water), once a while , also helps, so she can try this as well

Another poster mentioned Urinotheraphy - This is basically the consumption and utilisation of your own urine to treat various ailments and illnesses. It may sound disgusting, but it has been shown to work and improve a variety of conditions and ailments. It is based on the notion that the human body contains all it need to repair, regenerate and rejuvenate itself.

Contrary to general belief, Urine is NOT a waste product, but a product of blood filtration through the kidneys. It simply consists of stuff the body has no need for at the time. Consequently it is rich in vitamin, minerals and trace elements. E.g, if you consume a lot of vitamin C in one day, the excess is removed by the kidneys from the blood, and passed into the urine, still in a viable form.

It is recommended you use the first urine of the morning, and take it mid stream, so as to clear out any bacteria that may be in the Urethra. A cup can be sipped throughout the day,or drunk at once. It is better to start with a little at a time to avoid any reaction from gut.

Your Cuz can try this for a month and see what happens. She has nothing to lose.

Thank God you have been to the hospital. we dont need to live on drugs but our body is designed to function on food nutrients. The drug is to give immediate attention to all emergency cases but is not the lasting solution to all the ailments. If we eat the right food our body can heal itself. It is unfortunate that the food we have around us are grown or produced with chemicals which render them harmful to the body or our organs.

There are some Dietary supplement products that are from Forever living products(owner of Alovera of America. USA with offices in Nigeria) that can help your sister to overcome her problem .These products have worked wonders in the life of people. They are not drugs but food/nutritional supplements which will nourish the body system from brain to function as expected. For more details and how to buy them contact me on orelusimodupe@yahoo.com or 08032451201

Hello Jodina - I do empathise with you regarding your concern at your Sisters condition. I am not a Doctor, but i will try to give you some advise regarding nutrition that may help.

Epilepsy is an incredibly complex neurological condition that has varied causes, and should not be seen as a single disorder, but rather as a group of syndromes with vastly divergent symptoms, but all involving episodes of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. It can controlled with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases. It is very rarely cured.

There are various risk factors that can bring on seizure, and its important to be aware of them -

Missed medication

Lack of sleep

Illness (both with and without fever)

Severe psychological stress

Heavy alcohol use

Medicinal contraindication regarding over-the-counter/prescription medications. These can decrease the efficiency of her of seizure medications

Nutritional deficiencies: vitamins and minerals

The menstrual cycle

From a nutritional point of view, a Ketogenic Diet has been show to help Epilepsy sufferers reduce the number of seizure they have. Basically, its a high fat, medium protein, low carb diet.

It works by stimulating the body to produce "ketones", and induces "ketosis" in the body. The effects of ketosis are similar to the metabolic effect of starvation - as there are very low carbs in the diet. The ketones in the bloodstream then serve, through a very little understood mechanism, to reduce the number of seizures.

The diet was first developed in the early 1900s, and has been successfully used for the treatment of seizures.

I hope this helps.
