Simple and Natural is how we look at this. We get asked all the time if the chiropractor and Epilepsy really work well together. Now let me say that I am not a doctor and I am not in the medical profession at all….but I live with my Epileptic husband for over 30 years. With that being said…I know my husband better than any doctor. I have been asked over and over to explain things in detail to the doctor (since my hubby usually doesn’t know himself), as to what is happening in his life and with his seizures. Most times…the doctor remarks on how well I really know what is going on better than most “professionals”.
So getting back to chiropractors…..YES, YES, YES they really do work. If you are not familiar with going to one, don’t be alarmed by them. They are not doing anything against what your body was designed to do …quite the contrary. The best way to describe it is that they will get your spine back in line which works hand in hand with your immune system and all your other organs in your body.
After my husband has had a seizure…..most times if he was walking or standing he will crash-land on the floor. Then we will find that he has hit is head, twisted his body by the way he fell or what he fell into. Sometimes…it is only a day or two later that he will notice that something doesn’t seem right. For example….about a month ago he was walking in a restaurant….as he had a seizure he dropped his plate on the floor in front of him….then ended up taking a few steps backwards, and then we guess he stiffened up and fell straight back and slamming his head and entire body to the floor. What a jolt his body must have felt!
We went for our monthly visit to our chiropractor and he asked my hubby how things were going….as my hubby explained what had happened, he realized that his jaw was also bothering him in addition to some other things. The doctor had a look and said Graeme had the equivalent to whip-lash from the fall and had knocked his jaw out of alignment too. This is only one example of how it has helped him after a seizure.
The list for us goes on and on with the amount of help in getting these adjustments, and also just all in all general help and health. He seems to respond well to an adjustment immediately and right after an adjustment he tells me he feels more relaxed and clear-headed.
It has been over 20 years now we have been going this route and with a few other natural alternatives such as vitamins, herbs and oils…..this too has been a great supplement to his seizure meds.
I hope this helps shed any light to anyone else who struggles out there with seizures, epilepsy, ADHD and or Autism. Our family has been blessed to have these doctors in our life!
Comment below if this form of medical treatment has help you and or if you have found other alternatives that you can share. We would love to hear from you.
