My Modern Ayurveda Review

Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of blog have asked me about this manual, which is being advertised quite widely across the Internet. So I decided to buy a copy myself to find out what all the publicity was about.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

Herbal medicine and homoeopathy

Herbal medicine is widely used in epilepsy in many parts of the world. In a recent review, 150 plants were said to be recorded as used in traditional medicines, and 10 were thought to warrant further investigation. The Chinese mixture Saiko-Keishi-To is made up of nine plants. In one recent open study, when given to 24 patients with frequent seizures, six became seizure-free and 13 improved in the frequency or severity of seizures, and in another study there was a reduction in seizures of at least 25 in 33 of patients. There are no controlled studies of homoeopathic remedies in epilepsy, but open-case series demonstrate some improvements. However, homoeopathic clinics, in the UK at least, do not on the whole make many claims for efficacious remedies in epilepsy.

Selecting Your Doctor12

When you have compiled a list of prospective doctors, call each of their offices. First, ask if the doctor accepts your health insurance plan and if he or she is taking new patients. if the doctor is not covered by your plan, ask yourself if you are prepared to pay the extra costs. The next step is to schedule a visit with your chosen physician. During the first visit you will have the opportunity to evaluate your doctor and to find out if you feel comfortable with him or her. Ask yourself, did the doctor

Fever and general ill health

Many patients consider that seizures are more likely to occur at times of general ill health, lowered mood or when feeling 'run down'. For these reasons taking vitamins or herbal remedies, regular exercise, adopting healthy lifestyles, and measures to improve general health are frequently advised. At an anecdotal level these can greatly improve epilepsy, although rigorous scientific evidence of effectiveness is lacking. Complementary and alternative therapies for epilepsy are outlined on pp. 110-112.

Treatment Seeking Behavior

Usually with an indigenous healer and alternative medicine.39 A supernatural belief combined with family decision is associated with this choice. Relatives, friends and neighbors have a marked influence on the treatment-seeking behavior. In Nigeria,73 86 of the patients are influenced to use alternative medicine, while in Turkey 65 have visited religious figures at onset or during the course of the disease.74 Alternative treatment includes traditional healers, herbal medicine, spiritual healing, faith healing, cautery, aryuveda and homeopathy.27,41,43,45,73 In India, in spite of being well informed of this disorder, alternative treatment methods are often sought.70 The proportion of patients treated by traditional healers and herbal remedies was 70 in Mauritania44 and 11.5 in Pakistan.3 Mystical beliefs about this disorder make many patients and families to visit a community spiritual healer, a holy person or a shrine while receiving allopathic medical care.74 Involvement of multiple...

Complementary Therapy For Epilepsy

Complementary therapy is increasingly popular with patients, who may use this in addition to conventional medication.156-157 The term covers a wide variety of treatments such as acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal medicine, homeopathy, osteopathy and yoga. There is no evidence that these improve seizure control.158-159 Patients should be asked if they are using any complementary medicines and warned about the possibility of adverse effects. Problems may arise with the use of some herbal medicines because of interaction with prescribed medication. The potential reduction of the plasma concentrations of carbamazepine, phenobarbital and phenytoin should be noted if St John's Wort is used concomitantly.160The British National Formulary advises against this. Caution is also advised in the use of evening primrose oil but the evidence for this is less robust.

Complementary And Alternative Therapy In Epilepsy

Common whole, by satisfying a demand not met by orthodoxy, or by diversifying the conceptual frameworks of medicine'. One survey of 230 neurological outpatients found that 30 had used a non-conventional treatment in the previous year, and there is no doubt that many patients feel dissatisfied by conventional therapy and seek what they consider more natural and more gentle treatments. In epilepsy, a wide variety of techniques and therapies have been tried, although it has to be said that few have a scientific basis or have clearly established effectiveness by contemporary scientific standards. Whitmarsh has provided a comprehensive and critical review, and this text borrows heavily from this. He has divided complementary therapies into psychological behavioural therapies, exercise, herbal medicine, dietary measures, music therapy, exercise, homoeopathy, acupuncture, transcranial magnetic stimulation and chiropractic therapy.

If You Dont Succeed Investigate

A woman first came to the epilepsy center at the age of 28 years for management of uncontrolled seizures. Her seizures had begun at the age of 7, immediately after a bout of measles with high fever. She had previously been in good health and had no antecedent risk factors for epilepsy. The seizures were characterized by staring and unresponsiveness that started without warning and lasted for less than 1 minute. At the age of 12 she began to experience tonic-clonic seizures, which began with a feeling of restlessness and the urge to defecate. Next, she lost her ability to speak, blinked her eyes and paced back and forth for half a minute, and her head would then turn to the left. This was followed by generalized tonic-clonic activity. She was confused for several hours after each seizure and was sleepy for the remainder of the day.

Treatment and outcome

Second, the patient had a number of expectations of the surgery, the most important being that he would become more independent as a result of being rendered seizure-free. At the time of the operation he was heavily reliant on his mother, who was in her late 70s and not in good health. He had two siblings who lived away from the family home. His family was naturally concerned about his future, particularly if his mother's health deteriorated further.

Other Drugs Used In The Treatment Of Epilepsy

In 1861 Sir Edward Sieveking closed the treatment chapter in his book on epilepsy with the words 'there is scarcely a substance in the world capable of passing through the gullet of man that has not at one time or other enjoyed the reputation of being an antiepileptic'. Things have changed, but still unsubstantiated claims are made about numerous medicinal and non-medicinal products, with varying degrees of hope or cynicism. Among prescribed medicines there are a number whose claims are based on highly unsatisfactory open studies, often in small numbers of patients and for short periods of time. Some of these are listed in Table 3.29, and some are still occasionally encountered in clinical practice. Some carry significant risks of severe side-effects and in others the evidence of any antiepileptic efficacy is extremely slight this is therapeutic nihilism familiar to Sieveking. There are also many different herbal remedies for epilepsy, at least 30 of which have some evidence of...

Contraindications and Interactions Hidden Dangers

Be sure to read the label every time you use a nonprescription or prescription drug, and take the time to learn about drug interactions. These precautions may be critical to your health. You can reduce the risk of potentially harmful drug interactions and side effects with a little bit of knowledge and common sense.

What Are the Domains of Alternative Medicine44

Traditional oriental medicine emphasizes the balance or disturbances of qi (pronounced chi) or vital energy in health and disease, respectively. Traditional oriental medicine consists of a group of techniques and methods including acupuncture, herbal medicine, oriental massage, and qi gong (a form of energy therapy). Acupuncture involves stimulating specific anatomic points in the body for therapeutic purposes, usually by puncturing the skin with a thin needle. Ayurveda is India's traditional system of medicine. Ayurvedic medicine (meaning science of life ) is a comprehensive system of medicine that places equal emphasis on body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda strives to restore the innate harmony of the individual. Some of the primary Ayurvedic treatments include diet, exercise, meditation, herbs, massage, exposure to sunlight, and controlled breathing. Naturopathic medicine is based on the theory that disease is a manifestation of alterations in the processes by which the body naturally...

Biological Based Therapies

Herbal therapy employs an individual herb or a mixture of herbs for healing purposes. An herb is a plant or plant part that produces and contains chemical substances that act upon the body. Special diet therapies, such as those proposed by Drs. Atkins, Ornish, Pritikin, and Weil, are believed to prevent and or control illness as well as promote health. Orthomolecular therapies aim to treat disease with varying concentrations of chemicals such as magnesium, melatonin, and mega-doses of vitamins. Biological therapies include, for example, the use of laetrile and shark cartilage to treat cancer and the use of bee pollen to treat autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.

Use of Nonpsychiatric Hospital Services

An interesting issue raised by the above study is the confounding impact of institutionalized care on health service utilization. The association of severity of disability with the presence of epilepsy inevitably leads to a higher prevalence of epilepsy among patients within institutions than among those resident in the community. It is possible that staff within the institution, particularly those with medical training, may provide an acute medical role. As such, the threshold of severity for seizures and any resulting injures, for accessing accident and emergency services, may be higher within institutions than in the community. Other studies have demonstrated reduced admission rates for institutionalized patients in general despite their perceived greater health needs.

Choosing an Insurance Plan

There are a number of official government agencies that help consumers understand their healthcare insurance choices.56 The U.S. Department of Labor, in particular, recommends ten ways to make your health benefits choices work best for you.57 1. Your options are important. There are many different types of health benefit plans. Find out which one your employer offers, then check out the plan, or plans, offered. Your employer's human resource office, the health plan administrator, or your union can provide information to help you match your needs and preferences with the available plans. The more information you have, the better your healthcare decisions will be. 3. Look for quality. The quality of healthcare services varies, but quality can be measured. You should consider the quality of healthcare in deciding among the healthcare plans or options available to you. Not all health plans, doctors, hospitals and other providers give the highest quality care. Fortunately, there is quality...

Health Care Provision for People with Intellectual Disabilities

A wealth of published literature discusses obstacles to good health for people with ID and the need to support generic services in order to employ good philosophy of shared practice.28-30 These documents advocate for social inclusion of people with ID however, this does not just mean the use of generic services, it also implies providing the proper support to them to access the services they need. As a result, nurses within community ID teams are responding to this inclusive health agenda on a wide range of health needs for people with ID.31

Epilepsy Management in Primary Care

There is little evidence as to the appropriate care provision for people with epilepsy and ID. The delivery of an appropriate standard of care to those people with epilepsy and ID should be guided primarily by an aim to achieve health gain, increase life span, and improve quality of life.59,60 People with ID and epilepsy have different needs than does the general population. These can be specific to the cause of the ID or to the frequent presence of coexistent behavioral, sensory, or other physical problems. The response to antiepileptic drugs may be less than optimal and less effective than in the non-ID population. Within the clinical setting, difficulties with communication may also require working through a third person, either family or a paid caregiver, and this is a further potential source of difficulty.61,62 Studies have found rates ofbehavior disturbance and psychiatric disorder to be significantly higher in people with ID and epilepsy.63 It is not clear...

Epidemiological assessment of the global burden of epilepsy

From the epidemiological perspective, epilepsy is a significant cause of disability and disease burden in the world. Using a metric called disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), in which a DALY can be thought of as one lost year of healthy life, WHO has calculated the global burden of disease and injury that is attributable to different causes or risk factors. This measure of burden assesses the gap between current health status and an ideal situation where everyone lives into old age free of disease and disability. Overall, epilepsy contributed more than 7 million DALYs (0.5 ) to the global burden of disease in 2000 (118, 119). Figure 29.1 shows the distribution of DALYs or lost years of healthy life attributable to epilepsy, both by age group and by level of economic development. It is apparent that close to 90 of the worldwide burden of epilepsy is to be found in developing regions, with more than half occurring in the 39 of the global population living in countries with the...

Druginduced seizures

Almost any psychotropic drug carries a risk of inducing seizures. The risk is highest with the aliphatic pheno-thiazines (e.g. chlorpromazine 1-9 risk , promazine, trifluoperazine). The use of clozapine is associated with a 1-4 risk of seizures and with interictal epileptiform abnormalities. The piperazine phenothiazines (acetophenazine, fluphenazine, perphenazine, prochlorperazine, trifluoper-azine), haloperidol, sulpiride, pimozide, thioridazine and risperidone are thought to have the lowest epileptogenic potential, although firm data are lacking. The risk of seizures with antidepressant drugs ranges between less than 1 and 4 , and varies with the drug category. Agents accompanied by a high risk of seizures include clomipramine and second-generation antidepressants, amoxapine, maproti-line and amfebutamone. The risk of seizures with tricyclic antidepressants (other than clomipramine), citalopram, moclobemide and nefazodone is thought to be lower. The seizure risk with the selective...

Nimal Senanayake

The Indian medical system, however, began to leave the dim borderland of the supernatural to find a rational habitation. Vedas (veda knowledge), the ancient Indian texts written in the period c1500 to c800 BC, include the Atharveda and Rigveda which specifically mention the healing arts, Athavale.5 Ayurveda ('the science of life'), designated epilepsy Apasmara apa meaning negation or loss of, and smara meaning recollection or consciousness. Atreya, the father of Indian Medicine, defined Apasmara as a 'paroxysmal loss of consciousness due to disturbance of memory and (of) understanding of mind attended with convulsive seizures'. This places on record the origin of epilepsy in the mind, about 500 years before Hippocrates (460-355 BC), the father of Greek medicine, placed the 'sacred disease' in the mind.5 The seizure itself was thought by Atreya to be set off by the 'morbific humours', which normally lay dormant above the heart, but could be aroused by a sudden overwhelming emotion....
