I do not have Grand Mall Seizures, I have Partial Complex Petite Mall. Do you think it would help me as well?
Just because the brain is controlled by multiple cells does not mean the seizures are caused by multiple cells. It only takes 1 neuron to misfire to cause a seizure- convulsive or not, also blood loss effects all cells so those numbers you gave made no sense & have no relevance.You mention the assumption does not apply to my theory. Yet consider the following, any feature in the brain is controlled by multiple cells. If my theory is true that blood loss fires the fit, then consider the following. If 100 cells were responsible for fitting. If only 10% experience blood loss, only 10 will fire causing a mild seizure, and you will not fall over. If 50% experience blood loss the seizure will be more intense, but you might still remain upright. But if 80% fire it might trigger the type of seizure which causes you to fall. So my theory still works for all seizure types.
Many things are interesting but you seem to imply that because something is interesting it proves something. Remember, it’s only interesting. You have to realize that any body function that is unbalanced may increase the likelihood of a seizure and blood flow is just one of those functions.But it is interesting to note people with poor blood flow do have seizures that are so similar to epilepsy that doctors say they can't tell the difference.
Interesting CV disease is linked to aggravated seizures, again related to blood flow.
Dead blood cells do not restrict anything. The red blood cells are filtered by the kidneys for recycling & excretion and white blood cells are only produced as they’re needed then used up. Like I said before, take an introductory biology course. Do you mind if I ask what level of education you’ve completed?But they are dead or inoperable cells, which could do as I said in my post restrict blood flow. But so I can improve my understanding of brain damage how am I wrong.
The problem is that it has been found that using the Ketogenic diet only certain types of triglycerides (medium chain) have helped children with epilepsy but they need to burn the fat the way we burn protein. You associate metabolizing fats with effects of blood flow & the two are totally different. Saying that because fat can help during ketosis does not mean that blood flow will affect seizures as you are implying.So at least in part what I said is true Triglycerides have been used in the treatment of Seizures.
So so far I made the claim that the following things could help Seizures:
- Increased Blood flow - is true for Syncope based Seizures
Only medium chain triglycerides are used in this diet & only for children. I’ve explained how that has nothing to do with your claim[*]Triglycerides - is true for treatment of children with Seizures
As I’ve said before, there is no proof that Magnesium helps and as I’ve also said before anyone can post anything. That doesn’t stand up as proof. Numerous “diseases” that never really existed have been claimed on the internet. Like I said before, something should not be considered proof just because someone said it on a forum.[*]Magnesium - as the author of this thread suggests, and others I have read helps with Seizures
http://getbetterhealth.com/debunking-fake-diseases/2010.09.20Ever heard of adrenal fatigue? Wilson’s temperature syndrome? If not, there’s a good reason: They exist only on the Internet
[*]Sodium - is the only claim that I make that has not yet been proved to help. Yet think of Sodium Valporate. It is Sodium that is used as a carrier for the Valporate component. What if it is the Sodium not Valporate component that is actually helping.
I agree all forms should be looked into but one of the reasons they are categorized as different forms is because what causes, effects or prevents one form of seizures does not affect another form.I think it is good to look into all forms of Seizure, blood related Syncope, and brain damage related, and see if there is a link.
Blood pressure does drop when sleeping but it starts to rise again a few hours before we wake http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/blood-pressure/AN00391. If low blood pressure is causing seizures then why would they not happen before it starts to rise? Also, why would it happen at the same time each night as opposed to within the low blood pressure time zone? You also have to consider that the majority of people have seizures when awake so the low blood pressure theory seems irrelevant.I have a real fascination with knowing when seizures occur most commonly in epileptics. Are there any symptoms, or situations that trigger your epilepsy. My friend has seizures around 4 am while sleeping. Which could be related to blood flow, because blood pressure drops as you enter deep sleep. But I am interested to know.
"Dead blood cells do not restrict anything."
what about - red blood cells malforming/distorting, because that is what we seen meds was doing to my Son..in short 3 years...
Now I am not saying my theory is has to be true. But in regard to intensive exercise, blood quality drops over time, as energy is drained. Also combined with irregular heart beat, causing spasmodic or wave like blood supply to the brain. Could account for fitting in this scenario.This is a very interesting thread! I am needing to point out that I am very active and have found that during intense aerobic exercise i started having temporal lobe seizures. So blood flow must increase my potential?
