Epilepsy is a disorder related to the central nervous system which leads to abnormalities in the activities performed by the brain. It further leads to seizures or occasions when an individual suffers from unusual sensations and loss of awareness. Both males and females, of any age or ethnic background, remain at the risk of suffering from epilepsy.
Epilepsy is also referred to as a seizure disorder by many. If an individual suffers from two unprovoked seizures, they will be said to be diagnosed with epilepsy. By ‘unprovoked’, we mean that the seizures would not be caused by a general medical condition like low blood sugar or alcohol withdrawal. While brain injury leads to an unprovoked seizure at times, most of the time its cause remains unknown or undiscovered.
To promote awareness around this epilepsy, government authorities in different countries have taken several effective past in the last several years. International Epilepsy Day, for instance, is an event that has been designed to promote awareness of this medical disorder in more than 120 countries. As a part of this initiative, a large number of people from different backgrounds come together on the second Monday of February every year and work towards highlighting the issues faced by those who suffer from this disorder.
Neeraj Epilepsy Clinic is one institution in India that has been at the forefront when it comes to raising awareness around epilepsy and how it affects people’s lives. Neeraj Epilepsy Clinic, notably, is one of the top institutions that have received approval from the Government of India for Ayurveda treatment of epilepsy. This year, Neeraj Epilepsy Clinic will be launching a free check-up camp for two weeks on the occasion of International Epilepsy Day 2022 – Awareness Days.
Talking about this initiative, Dr. Gupta, Director of Neeraj Clinic, says, “If epilepsy is detected in the early days of an individual suffering from it, there is a high chance of it being treated successfully. Many a time, people discover the fact that they are suffering from epilepsy very late as they don’t undergo regular medical check-ups. Through this two-week-long camp, people can get their Nadi Pariksha (Pulse Diagnosis) check-up done by Ayurvedic Doctors for free.”
Neeraj Clinic has taken several important initiatives in the recent past that have greatly helped epilepsy patients heal and recover from this ailment. Last year, Neeraj Clinic had launched a week-long yoga and holistic treatment program that was attended by a large number of people. For 47 years, Neeraj Clinic has been using this knowledge of Combination Therapy to successfully treat epilepsy patients. Till now Neeraj Clinic has successfully treated more than 157000 patients worldwide.
“In Ayurveda, epilepsy is referred to as ‘apasmara’. This term roughly translates to ‘loss of consciousness. Those who practice Holistic Lifestyle on a regular basis, witness a massive improvement in their blood circulation, concentration, breathing and physical endurance. It also provides great relief to the nervous system. Through Ayurveda and Yoga, we have successfully been able to treat several individuals who were suffering from epilepsy”, he says.
With the way things have been planned, the two-week free check-up camp organized by Neeraj Epilepsy Clinic should add great value to International Epilepsy Day 2022 – Awareness Days this year. Dr. Gupta has been working towards realizing his dream of an Epilepsy Free India for years and this free medical check-up camp is a solid step in that direction.
