Science may have found the tentative causes of epilepsy – neurological disorders and abnormalities with regular functioning of the brain – but it has yet to invent a complete cure for the affliction.

Over-the-counter and prescribed medications do work wonders, though they only help temporarily stop or postpone another episode. Epilepsy is a serious issue. There are millions of people around the world who suffer from it and seizures can occur anywhere from once a year to multiple times in one day. Though some attacks are minor where the patient knows what is going on around him and can try to control it, there are other violent attacks that come without warning and can even prove to be fatal.
