46. Epilepsy-Down Syndrome Foundation
Research into the dual diagnoses of Down syndrome and epilepsy. Emphasizes nutritional and nonmedical interventions.
Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation
A better vision The Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation (DSEF) is a part of the non-profit Center for Natural Health Research and is devoted to looking into the best, natural, methods to help those who have both Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and various forms of epilepsy (including Lennox-Gastaut syndrome). These methods include clinical nutrition, real naturopathy, manipulative techniques, exercise, and other natural methods intended to improve the quality of life for those with Down syndrome who also suffer with seizures. The Down Syndrome-Epilepsy Foundation is directed up by Robert J. Thiel, Ph.D., N.H.D. . He is not a medical doctor. He possesses a doctorate (Ph.D.) in nutrition science and a doctorate in natural health (N.H.D.). Thiel believes that DSEF has a better vision for those with both disorders. Why? Because he believes that natural is better. Because he believes that many health professionals and therapists have expectations for the disabled that are too low. Because he believes combining nutrition, exercise, and parental motivation results in better outcomes. Because he believes that science and common-sense show that the combination of natural interventions is the most logical to pursue. Because he has met with many of the so-called experts and researchers in this field and found many of their approaches lacking. He does not believe that he, nor DSEF, have all the answers, but does believe that in many respects, DSEF is at the forefront for practical research to benefit those with both Down syndrome and epilepsy.

47. What Is Epilepsy All About
What Causes epilepsy? To understand how epilepsy arises, we must briefly outline how the brain functions normally. Varieties of epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a disorder in which nerve cells of the brain from time to time release abnormal electrical impulses. These cause a temporary malfunction of the other nerve cells of the brain, resulting in alteration of, or complete loss of consciousness.
  • A common disorder... What causes epilepsy Varieties of epilepsy Partial seizures ... The causes of epilepsy
  • A Common Disorder
    The most carefully collected data from international surveys indicate that about 1 adult in 200 suffers from recurrent epilepsy. If we include infants who have suffered seizures caused by fever (usually a temporary problem) and adults who have only ever had one seizure, the figure rises to about 1 person in 80. Epilepsy is hardly rare, but despite this, it is not well understood. Back to what it's all about
    What Causes Epilepsy?
    To understand how epilepsy arises, we must briefly outline how the brain functions normally. The brain consists of millions of nerve cells, or neurones, and their supporting structure. Each neurone maintains itself in an electrically charged state. It receives electrical signals from other neurones, and passes them on to others. What actually happens is that a tiny quantity of a special neurotransmitter substance is released from the terminals of one neurone. This chemical excites an electrical response in the nuerone next in the chain, and so the signal moves onward.

    48. Epilepsy & Sleep Disorders
    Article from the neurowebforum
    This article submitted by on 10/13/95.
    Does anyone know if there is a correlation between epilepsy
    and sleep disorders (such as narcolepsy or sleep apnea).
    My 12 year old daughter has been recently diagnosed with
    "primary absence seizures". She also has a rare form of
    "sleep apnea" which is treated with bi-level nasal mask
    We have correlated her epilepsy attacks to every 90 minutes
    which suggests a REM sleep disorder.

    epilepsy is a condition of the nervous system that affects 50 million people worldwide, and seizures are a common symptom of epilepsy. What Is epilepsy?

    Picture this scenario - you're hanging out with a group of buddies at an ice-cream shop. Everybody is talking and having a good time. Suddenly, one of your friends drops his cone and tenses up. He throws his head back and his whole body stiffens up and then starts twitching and shaking. In a few seconds, the episode is over. Your friend has stopped shaking, but he's disoriented. He doesn't remember what just took place or what everybody was talking about moments ago. What happened? It could be that your friend just experienced an epileptic seizure. Epilepsy is a condition of the nervous system that affects 2.5 million Americans and an estimated 50 million people worldwide, and seizures are a common symptom of epilepsy. Read on to learn more about seizures and epilepsy. What Is Epilepsy?
    A seizure (pronounced: see -zhur) happens when the brain's electrical signals misfire. The normal electrical activity in the brain is disrupted by these overactive electrical discharges, resulting in a temporary communication problem between nerve cells. While a person is having a seizure, she may experience a change in or loss of consciousness, involuntary motions (such as jerking or thrashing one or more parts of the body), or unusual feelings or sensations (such as unexplained fear). After a seizure, she may feel tired, weak, or disoriented. A person who has repeated seizures is said to have the condition called epilepsy. Just because someone has a seizure does not necessarily mean she has epilepsy. Seizures can be triggered in anyone under extreme conditions, such as severe
