Fighting Seizures using health & foods

 

A seizure, or convulsion, is a sudden, uncontrollable contraction of a group of muscles. It may be mild or violent. When a child experiences a convulsion, all or part of his body may stiffen and jerk either with tiny, almost imperceptible movements, or with large, obvious movements.

Although a seizure usually lasts only a few minutes, seeing a child undergo this is a frightening experience for a parent. The child loses consciousness. His body may twitch or shake. His eyes may roll back and his teeth may clench. Breathing may be labored and heavy. The child may froth at the mouth, and may wet himself.

Seizures can have a variety of causes, including high fever, a head injury, poisoning, shock, epilepsy, brain infection, or an allergic reaction. It may be an isolated occurrence or the result of a chronic disorder.

After a seizure has run its course, the child will sleep. Upon awakening, he will feel fatigued, disoriented, and dazed.
