Seizures can come in many forms, from something as simple as the perception of an odor that is not present, to the significant grand mal type seizures most of us are familiar with that have loss of consciousness and significant movements of the body. These neurological disorders are indicators of serious problems with the health and function of the brain. There are many factors that lead to a Seizure disorder, but at its most fundamental level there is a spontaneous activation of nerve cells which result in the symptoms of a seizure. This spontaneous activity indicates a level of instability in nerve cells and signals serious impairment to the health of the cells and the brain as a whole. What can be done to help or fix these problems? Functional Neurology may have some of the answers that a person with seizures is looking for. In cases of problems with a Seizure Disorder, a skilled Functional Neurologist is well trained in evaluating the overall function of the brain. Based on this information, an appropriate treatment program can be developed to help with Seizure disorders. In addition, any other factors that might be affecting these conditions such as diabetes, anemia, inflammation etc. will be addressed as the neurological systems are dependent on an appropriately functioning biochemical system to operate properly.
