1st person to use neurofeedback for epilepsy.  

Neurofeedback works! we deal directly with the brain!

The most common cause of seizures is epilepsy. But not every person who has a seizure has epilepsy.  Sometimes seizures may be caused or triggered by:

  • High fever, Lack of sleep, stroke, brain tumor,
  • Flashing lights, moving patterns or other visual stimulants
  • Low blood sodium (hyponatremia), which can happen with diuretic therapy
  • Medications, such as certain pain relievers, antidepressants or smoking cessation therapies, that lower the seizure threshold
  • Head trauma that causes an area of bleeding in the brain
  • Abnormalities of the blood vessels in the brain
  • Autoimmune disorders, including systemic lupus erythematosus and multiple sclerosis
  • Use of illegal or recreational drugs, such as amphetamines or cocaine
  • Alcohol misuse, during times of withdrawal or extreme intoxication
  • COVID-19 virus infection

Medication for Seizures

In cases where medications do control the seizures, they typically have side effects. They can cause disruptions in mood, sleep and cognition and increased anxiety (note.  neurofeedback corrects theses disruptions).  Invasive surgery is an option for some people, but that’s typically a treatment of last resort. https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/epilepsy-surgery/about/pac-20393981

If INVASIVE surgery is not preferred or impossible due to other complications.  Your best option is Neurofeedback, non invasive and the best non invasive therapy available.   This study shows how 76% got better:  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19044219/

60 sessions was required in this case above (about 30weeks)

Seizures duration are normally less than 2minutes.  If it lasts more than 5 minutes, consult a Doctor.  Seizures twice in 24 hours, see a Doctor

Few stroke survivors may suffer from chronic and recurring seizures but many do not develop epilepsy.  The increase in frequency of seizures a month is an indication of higher risk for epilepsy.  Note, even their frequency of migraine reduced and they felt lesser pain if it occurred.  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21309444/   

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which recurrent seizures occur that cannot be associated with other specific causes. Seizures, as well as the onset of epilepsy, can occur after a stroke. Having one seizure after a stroke does not necessarily mean a person has epilepsy; however, if chronic and recurring seizures are a result of a stroke, then a stroke survivor is likely to have epilepsy.  A seizure that occurs first, may indicate that a person had a stroke, especially in children and infants.
