Epilepsy is a chronic disorder which is characterized by recurrent, unprovoked seizures. It’s the fourth most common neurological disorder that affects people of all ages and walks of life. What’s worse is the prescription drugs used to “treat” epilepsy are one of the top-selling drugs in the world, which in my book means the pharmaceutical industry have no intentions of finding a cure and will probably suppress a cure if found.
This is a humongous issue. Over the last 15 years or so dozens of approved anti-epileptic drugs were put on the market. The newer ones appear to work with fewer side effects, but the percentage of patients who are on the drugs and still have seizures hasn’t changed meaningfully in decades. Approximately a third of the nearly 3 million epilepsy sufferers in the United States have drug-resistant seizures, and doctors estimate that at least 250,000 of those drug-resistant patients are children.
I have this mantra that I created and I believe in wholeheartedly, it goes like this,” What they tell us is incurable is easier to cure than what they tell us is curable”.
So one day I met a girl who worked in the checkout line at a local health food store. Every time I would pass by to pick up a thing or two I would always strike up a convo with her. Then one day while we were talking about health, she expressed to me that she suffers from epilepsy.
So I told her I could have sworn when doing research on magnesium that I had read a few medical research documents that stated literally all epilepsy sufferers had a magnesium deficiency.
You would be surprised how many diseases and ailments are caused and linked to mineral deficiency.
So after scouring the internet, I found a few scientific medical research documents stating what I had read beforehand. Typically Tics, muscle spasms and cramps, seizures, anxiety, and irregular heart rhythms are among the classic signs and symptoms of low magnesium.
According to the book “Magnesium, The Nutrient That Could Change Your Life” : Dr. Lewis B. Barnett, head of the Hereford Clinic and Deaf Smith Research Foundation in Hereford, Texas, began a series of experiments. The boy became a subject. He was given, in addition to a normal diet, 450 mg. of magnesium gluconate and a thyroid extract. Within two weeks all signs of epilepsy vanished, and within the past three years, there have been no signs of the illness.
I also found a blog post where an individual said she stopped her friends seizures using Epson salts. So I then recommended to my friend that she try Dr’s Best Elemental Magnesium.
I suggest reading my blog post Magnesium: The Miracle Mineral! which explains the different types and bio-availability of magnesium.
My friend was willingly to try just about anything just to escape the horrors of the side effects of the epileptic prescription drug she was taking. So she started taking 400 mg a day and she said after 90 days of taking the magnesium she was going to attempt to stop taking her prescription meds.
Now what makes this situation so interesting is she told me that the prescription drugs she was taking were not only very expensive, but they also caused her horrible side-effects. She also added that she had to take the drugs twice a day and if she missed one dosage she would start to convulse.
Well the first day she stopped taking the prescription drugs she didn’t convulse and she said she felt great. Four months later she hadn’t experienced any seizures. Twelve months later she still hadn’t experienced any seizures.
So is magnesium the cure for epilepsy? Only individual experience and time will tell. But one thing is for sure if magnesium is the cure the pharmaceutical industry will never tell you!
Good luck on your health journey! Nothing is incurable!
