For quite some time there’s been an explosion of health food products on the market, specifically advertised as either “organic foods” or “natural” foods.
Most people don’t know that there is a major difference between “organic” and “natural” foods, believing that the two are interchangeable.
But, there’s a huge difference between a food labeled “natural” and one that is labeled “organic.”
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new generator for the VNS Therapy® System.
The new generator, called AspireSR®, offers the ability to provide automatic stimulation in response to increased heart rate, in addition to its other stimulation timing.
I always thought that steroids were the kind used by athletes and bodybuilders to pump up their performance. Yes, they do exist and, yes they are quite dangerous, but those aren’t the kind of steroids this article is about.
In fact, anyone who has epilepsy should NOT take anabolic steroids because they may change the level of anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) in the blood and may make seizures more likely.
The steroids I’m talking about are naturally occurring hormones. Common oral prednisolone or less common/higher risk ACTH — which have a place in the management of severe epilepsies.
I had a concussion on Tuesday (my birthday!) and haven’t been very functional.

Everyone knows that it’s hard to get a job these days. And if you have epilepsy, it’s twice as difficult.
But here are some tips if you DO land an interview and also your legal rights.
Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) is just what it sounds like. Something to complement the AED regimen you’re already on. And perhaps take an extra step (with your doctor’s go-ahead) to alleviate seizures.
There are lots of alternatives, so I’ll touch on the most popular ones here…
Here are the types of expenses you can get help with FREE:
Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.”
And there are plenty of reasons to love it: Health, healing, immunity. Liver, kidney and bone health. Energy, weight loss, hair and skin care…and that’s just scratching the surface.
The names are probably familiar to you. But the fact that all of these people have epilepsy may surprise you. Despite that fact, they have lived their lives, becoming prominent in their fields, an inspiration to us all.
