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.
Exercise has been clearly shown to improve the control of seizures in a number of studies, from institutions and outpatient clinics. A mean 40 reduction in seizures was observed in one study of aerobic dancing. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat epilepsy. There is some published animal experimental evidence of efficacy, and anecdotal accounts of long-term reduction of seizures and even status epilepticus. One study showed improvement in 89 of 98 cases treated with courses of scalp electro-acupuncture (30 minutes of electrical stimulation to the scalp at 2-3.5 Hz given daily for 15 days and repeated with a week-long break between courses). Well-conducted controlled studies, however, have failed to show benefit. There are case reports of chiropractic therapy reporting huge improvements in individual patients. Correcting 'upper cervical malalignment' in a 6-year-old, for instance, was reported to reduced the frequency of absence seizures from 25 per day to less...
