Referred to as `Apasmara' in Ayurveda, epilepsy, more popularly known
as the falling disease, is a serious
disorder of the central nervous system that affects both children and
adults alike. Afflicting infants and early
teenagers the most, it is categorised into two main types - Petit Mal
& Grand Mal. Depending on the
dominance of the three doshas and their combined effect it can come in
four types - a fifth type, called
Yoshapasmara, denotes hysteria which is more prevalent among women.
Petit Mal results from a strained nervous condition.
Grand Mal is due to hereditary influences, serious shock or injury to
brain or nervous system and
diseases like meningitis and typhoid.
Allergic reaction to certain food substances.
Use of cocaine.
Deficient mineral assimilation.
In case of petit mal, there is momentary loss of consciousness with no
convulsions except a
slight rigidity. In this case, the attack stops within a few seconds.
Grand mal, on the other hand, has a dramatic effect. Violent
convulsions accompanied by a
sudden loss of consciousness, twitching of the muscles, biting of the
fixation of limbs, rotation of the head and deviation of the eyes
continues for much longer.
