Epilepsy is a disease of the nervous system characterised by sudden loss of consciousness, periods of unusual behaviour and often accompanied by convulsions or seizures. This condition can be developed by anyone, regardless of race, gender or age but there are certain causes. Read on to find out.
Nervous heredity seems to play an important part in this disease. The abuse of alcohol by parents seems to have a decided effect on their offspring. The majority of cases occur in early life, generally before the age of twenty.

Many factors and complications surround this condition. Osteopathy believes in the treatment by identifying the root cause.
