Imagine you’re working at your desk one second and then the next you’re surrounded by people asking you if you’re okay. That’s what can happen when someone is suffering from epilepsy, the communication is distrubed between your brain and body causing you to become unconscious while your body reacts beyond your control.
Seizures can take a toll on your body and mind, the unpredictability of them can affect your lifestyle, and lead to falls, injuries, car accidents, and worse.
Read on to find out how our tinctures can help to reduce the frequency and intensity of epileptic seizures.
Seizures and Epilepsy, what’s the difference?
Seizures can be caused as the result of trauma to your brain, from a medical condition such as low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), low blood sodium, high fever, or from alcohol or drug abuse. But when you have more than one unprovoked seizure (meaning, you don’t have any of the above conditions) you may be diagnosed with epilepsy.
What causes epileptic seizures?
Our brain communicates with our body by sending out electrical signals but when you have epilepsy it causes random lightning storms in your brain where signals get misfired and communication stops and that’s when you can have a seizure.
How can Hemp Heal tinctures help?
The active ingredient in our tinctures has an anticonvulsant property which can help to reduce the intensity and frequency of seizures.
Our tinctures can help to restore the communication between your brain and body by blocking NMDA receptors (an ion-channel receptor), enhancing GABA receptors (a neurotransmitter that sends chemical messages through the brain and the nervous system) and stabilizing ion channels (abnormalities in the ion channels plays a role in seizures).
A recent third-party study by the NCBI has found that our active ingredient’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties can help to reduce the brain thunderstorms and bring balance back to your life.
