Dr.K.Asokan creates awareness on Epilepsy

When a normal looking person starts having seizures without any reason, then it is called epilepsy. In fact, epilepsy is a tendency to have unexplained seizures, which affects about 65 million people around the world. In the medical world it is known as epilepsy. It is the fourth most common neurological disease, which can affect the life of a person of any age from children to old people. 

When an epileptic attack occurs, the victim suddenly loses the power to think and understand, his muscles start having cramps. Many times a person falls down during a seizure, gets electric shocks in his body and foam comes out of the mouth. This situation can harm not only the victim's health but also his social image. In view of the increasing cases of epilepsy, National Epilepsy Day is celebrated every year on 17 November to create awareness.

Regarding this, expert Dr K Asokan says that “A person's brain controls the entire body, hence proper treatment of this brain-related disorder is necessary. For diagnosis, first of all it is necessary to know about the type of epilepsy. “Most patients are able to control their seizures with medication, but sometimes surgical treatment is considered an option when medication is ineffective.”

According to Dr. Asokan, lifestyle changes play an important role in the management of epilepsy. Under this, untimely seizures can be controlled by including good sleep, regular meditation and freeing yourself from stress through exercises like deep breathing. Along with this, balanced diet is very important. By consuming it, the person not only remains nourished, but by staying hydrated, the functioning of the person remains stable.
