Meditation Could Help Epileptics

0 Comments

Epilepsy – a condition that causes repeated seizures – affects over 500,000 people in the UK, typically beginning in childhood, although it can manifest itself at any point in someone’s life. While medication can be taken in order to control the condition, there are other complementary therapies that people can consider, such as meditation.

Learning to relax by meditating and focusing on your breathing can do a lot to help lower stress levels, which can go a long way to reducing the seizures that some people may experience. Over time, the practice can really help you to clear your mind and cope with mental tiredness and overall fatigue, while lessening the effects of headaches and promoting your overall sense of wellbeing.

If you haven’t done it before, just set aside 20 to 30 minutes twice a day to sit down and meditate. The benefits may not be immediately obvious so don’t become disheartened – you should be able to feel the effects within a week or so, so don’t give up straight away. Just begin with a simple technique and then gradually build your way up.

While you can teach yourself, it makes sense to seek out an experienced instructor who has in-depth knowledge of the different techniques to really feel the benefits, particularly if you have a serious condition like epilepsy.

Those of you who do experience seizures also need to make sure that you stay healthy in other areas of your life by taking regular exercise, avoiding excessive drinking and eating a well-balanced diet. If you have just been diagnosed, chat to your GP or visit a support group to find out more about living with the condition.
