What is the world coming too, people must stop ignoring that there is something seriously wrong with so many children with health problems? Many people don’t want to accept the chemicals in our processed foods could be causing the outbreak of our health problems, most people are addicted to their favorite processed foods, and so are in denial these foods could be the cause of our unhealthy society today. The majority of people consume 80% or more processed foods as their main part of their diets, we are giving up our health for the addiction of the chemicals in these foods. Many people are experiencing positive results by cutting back on processed foods, and going gluten-free, gluten contributes to the majority of people’s low energy and lack to be able to concentrate as well as they used too.
Seizures in children are much more frequently than the majority of people realize, one out of every one hundred children experiences epilepsy-recurring seizures. The most common seizure type in children is febrile seizures, these seizures occurs when a child contracts an illness such as an ear infection, cold, or even chicken pox accompanied with a fever.
Like many of the diseases and disorders today, febrile seizures are unknown my the medical profession what exactly causes it to affect a child. The medical profession does say children with a family history is at a higher risk, they are also saying children with developmentally delayed disorders are at high risk as well. It is common for children who experience this type of seizure to experience more in their future, could the chemicals in our food over time be contributing to the increase in children experiencing seizures?
This type of seizure occurs within twenty-eight days of a child’s birth, most often the children experiences this type of seizure shortly after birth. Instead of convulsions, the child’s eyes will appear to be looking in different directions. Children experiencing this seizure also may show lip smacking, it is also possible for them to stop breathing for short periods of time.
This type of seizure involves one part of the brain, and only one part of the child’s body. During this seizure the child remains awake and alert, complex partial seizures are similar except the child is not aware of what is happening around them. During this type of seizure a child often will repeat an activity over and over, hand clapping is common during this type of seizure. The child has no memory after the seizure ends, most often the child is disoriented.
This type of seizure involves a larger portion of the child’s brain, there are two types of generalized seizures children experience. Convulsive seizures and non-convulsive seizures, convulsive seizures are uncontrollable muscle jerking which usually lasts a few minutes followed by periods of drowsiness. Child recovers relatively quickly within fifteen minutes, extreme fatigue is common at this time. Sometimes a child will lose their urine or stool during this type of seizure, most of the time the child has no memory of the seizure.
Absense type of seizures are short episodes which the child stares with no apparent awareness of their surroundings, this seizure lasts a few seconds. This is often referred to as daydreaming, this begins and ends abruptly.
This seizure lasts longer than thirty minutes, sometimes a child will experience repeated seizures without returning to normal in between each seizure. This seizure is most common in children younger than two years old, by now you might be realizing seizures in children are more common than you realized?
Epilepsy In Children
Epilepsy is very common in young children, epilepsy is a pattern of chronic seizures of any type affecting a child over and over during an extended period. Many children experience epilepsy when they are young and may outgrow the seizures according to the medical professionals, I wonder if the seizures just become less severe and less frequently, and never actually disappear completely?

What Is On My Mind Today?
Do you find it interesting that the majority of children with special needs such as autism experience seizures, this would make me think whatever is causing one is causing the other? I strongly urge people to adjust their diets to less processed foods, adding more whole natural foods seems to be the key to managing many of our health problems today. Beware especially of gluten as well, gluten foods causes many physical and mental symptoms. Focus on your diet first before taking any prescriptions which are not ones you must have to live, the less prescription drugs in your body the better for your health.
