I was at a marketing event this week and ended up having a conversation about a teenage girl who had epilepsy. Natural remedies for seizures came up in conversation.
The seizures had begun about a year ago right around the time that her menstrual cycles started, and her seizures were tied to her menstrual cycles (the term for this type of seizure is “catamenial”). The answer from the “specialists” was to put her on anti-seizure meds as well as the birth control pill. Sounds great on the surface, but when you look a little deeper, you’ll see that this is not the best approach.
