Dear All,

I am suffering through the epilepsy syndrome "Grand mal seizure, generalised tonic clonic seizure" for the past 14yrs. I am taking the following medications: 1000mg KEPPRA (Morning), 1000mg Keppra (evening). my MRI was normal and i had spent 5 Days in the swiss epi-clinic in zurich to get my check ups done in 2010. My last EEG in August 2012 had the usual signs of this syndromes. Blood tests is situated rather in the upper range


I have all the reports which i get every year but they are in german. Is it possible for me to send u the reports in german if needed?

After my last attacks 1 month ago (I had 3 attacks within 45mins) since then i have a electric shock waves on my forhead after having a injury through falling on the woodfloor trice. I got my check up done but the doctors didnt find anything again.

I myself can not figure out why i have these attacks and what i can do.

Is it possible to heal this attacks through your medications? if yes, what do i have to take and how?

Thank you in advance for your soon reply.

Kind regards,

Reshma

11. This fungus contains several toxic compounds, the best known of which is Muscarin. The symptoms of poisoning do not develop at once, usually twelve to fourteen hours elapse before the initial attack. There is no antidote, treatment, entirely symptomatic (Schneider). Agaricus acts as an intoxicant to the brain, producing more vertigo and delirium than alcohol, followed by profound sopor with lowered reflexes.
Jerking, twitching, trembling, and itching are strong indications. Incipient phthisis; is related to the tubercular diathesis, anæmia, chorea, twitching ceases during sleep. Various forms of neuralgia and spasmodic affections, and neurotic skin troubles are pictured in the symptomatology of this remedy. It corresponds to various forms of cerebral excitement rather than congestion. Thus, in delirium of fevers, alcoholism, etc. General paralysis. Sensation as if pierced by needles of ice.

The provings bring out four phases of cerebral excitement.
1. Slight stimulation-shown by increased cheerfulness, courage, loquacity, exalted fancy.
2. More decided intoxication-great mental excitement and incoherent talking, immoderate gaity alternates with melancholy. Perception of relative size of objects is lost, takes long steps and jumps over small objects as if they were trunks of trees-a small hole appears as a frightful chasm, a spoonful of water an immense lake. Physical strength is increased, can lift heavy loads. With it much twitching.
3. Third stage produces a condition of furious or raging delirium, screaming, raving, wants to injure himself, etc.
4. Fourth stage-mental depression, languor, indifference, confusion, disinclination to work, etc. We do not get the active cerebral congestion of Belladonna, but a general nervous excitement such as is found in delirium tremens, delirium of fevers, etc.

Dull headache from prolonged desk-work. Icy coldness, like icy needles, or splinters. Neuralgia with icy cold head. Desire to cover head warmly (Silica). Headache with nose-bleed or thick mucous discharge.

12. On inhaling this drug, it rapidly dilates all arterioles an capillaries, producing flushings of face, heat, and throbbing in the head.--Superficial arterial hyperæmia.

Often relieves temporarily epileptic convulsions. Seasickness.

Its chief action is centered in the vegetative sphere, impaired nutrition being the keynote of its action, the glands, skin, and bones, being instrumental in the changes wrought.

Symptoms disposed to appear periodically and in groups. Complaints begin in left side (Laches). Tape worm (colloidal Cuprum 3x).
