Seizures

Posted by Lerxst [190.1399] on March 07, 2005 at 02:02:53:

Hello

Late in 2004 i wrote a post about my 9 year old daughter who began having seizures,i will quickly update what happened to her!Last August while we were on a camping trip
my daughter had a what we believed to be a seizure...i knew right away that something was wrong with her because she was in a zombie state her mouth was droopy and she couldn't answer our questions we brought her to the local emergency and was told that she was alright maybe just a bit of heat stroke.She had a few more seizures in the following weeks that led me to write a post.....your answer was to get an MRI,blood work and see a neurologist!
We also had an EEG and an EKG done as well....Anyway the neurologist has said that she is not suffering from epilepsy(which was in a few doctors minds)and that she is suffering from migraines,all the tests that were conducted on our daughter found nothing wrong.Even though the diagnosis of Migraines was given my wife doesn't buy it and she seems to think that migraines is only part of it..One doctor told her that even though the tests show nothing epilepsy could manifest itself...She asked me to write you a post and hear what you have to say!What else can we do?Would you be satisfied with the diagnosis of Migraines if this was your child?We were told that this neurologist is one of the best.My wife also had migraines as a child but they didn't manifest itself with the same symtoms as what my daughter is having?The recomendation that the neurologist said was to try to catch the migraine well before it happens...he didn't believe her migraine trigger was food related!Sorry for the long post!

It could possibly be sensitivies. Years ago "doc" tested out a youngster who would write his name on a large piece of paper, and when specific substances were brought near, he could only write a wriggley line. These helpful people test allergies using your pulse reaction and it is non invasive, but allergies can make simple peoblems become very severe for some people. If you can find some connection, it might take a while. This is just a shot in the dark. Good luck to you and your daughter. How is she the rest of the time? Have there been vaccinations in the last year? Has metal toxicity been tested for?

you don't need an accurate label to treat with whole foods diet, no vaccines, and blood testing for food sensitivities-she can get better whether they come up with a correct name for it or not.
DO keep a food diary for her, so you can look for what might have triggered an episode when it occurs, looking for things in common before each episode.

Thanks, Lerxst, for the update.

I would not be satisfied with the migraine diagnosis. The average neurologist would know nothing about intracellular hypersensitivities. With the EEG not showing any traces of epilepsy, hypersensitivities are the most likely cause, in my opinion.

See Dr Philpott's classic "Brain Allergies" to get you started in that direction. In the meantime, go to the MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities) archives to get on the trail of the closest Clinical Ecologist who would be the next most likely kind of specialsit who could help you unravel this.

Listen to Ann & lmd.

Let us know what you learn.

Dr. Stoll, I just saw a docudrama called "First Do No Harm" (with Meryl Streep) about a boy who had a major case of eplilepsy. To make a long story short, his doctor was killing him, the mother was able to get him away from that doctor and to a center that administered a ketogenic diet for three years and the boy was cured. In fact, he stopped having seizures during a two day fast that was required before even starting the ketogenic diet.

My question is: have you ever read anything or heard anything that eplilepsy can be caused by intracellular sensitivities? Why would someone stop having seizures during a fast after almost dying from them?

Thanks, Lorna.

There are many diferent causes that can precipitate the symptoms Lerxst is describing. Unfortunately the allpathic tradition is so hidebound that if those causes do not fit the allpathic tradition, they cannot be considered even though they work! In my opinion this is an example of the Tolstoy Effect in full bloom!

The solution, in my opinion, is to TRY different solutions that are not harmful and find out if any of them work for that individual.
