Epilepsy Affects Millions of People Worldwide, With More Than Two Million People in the United States Suffering from the Disorder
It will begin with inspirational letters written by epileptics discussing how they have overcome their epilepsy and gone on to live healthy and productive lives. Subsequent chapters will deal with the mind, body and spirit connection, and the role of motivation, self-esteem and faith. In order to help readers reduce stress and learn how to incorporate epilepsy in their life so they can live with the disorder feeling good about them. I show how they can create their own "personal journal" that combines use of positive imagery, relaxation, meditation and exercise.
The book will include my own personal experience growing up with epilepsy and how I overcame the disorder. The end of the book will include a section discussing how to keep you in good health emotionally, physically and spiritually. I help readers learn that to keep their seizures under control, they cannot just take medicine. They need to keep themselves healthy by eating right, exercising and sleeping properly. This chapter will introduce readers to "techniques and exercises" that will enable them to put the advice of the chapter into immediate practice. The last chapter of the book will include what medical technology has in store for epileptics, discussing new medicines, treatments and surgical procedures.
In addition, the appendix will include a health section to help you gain a nutritious diet, centers and organizations that help epileptics and a glossary to help understand medical terms in the book that are unfamiliar to the reader.
Through example and encouragement Epilepsy You’re Not Alone will offer readers a variety of strategies for coping with epilepsy. Epilepsy You’re Not Alone will present readers with a workable program for coping with their disorder and forming a healthy relationship with their mind, body and spirit enabling readers to overcome their disorder and get on with their lives.
