Treatment with our amino-acid preparations effectively supplements classic medicamentous anti-epileptic therapy. In many cases it brings a reduction of the frequency of epileptic seizures by up to 50-75%, and in some cases epileptic seizures are eliminated completely. It also produces a change in the character of epileptic seizures – from generalised seizures they become partial and/or are only short-term.
Treatment with amino-acid preparations is also effective for children in whom epilepsy is accompanied by disorders of psychomotor development. Amino-acids directly stimulate intellectual development, speech development, significantly improve gross and fine motor skills, as well as balance and co-ordination of movements. Improvement of speech development, cognitive functions and motor development takes place also in children with resistant forms of epilepsy, in which the patient does not respond or responds only minimally to treatment with anti-epileptic drugs.
In younger and older with epilepsy the overall psychological condition improves upon treatment with our amino-acid preparations, as well as concentration and memory, and the intensity of complaints after the subsidence of an epileptic seizure is reduced – drowsiness, fatigue, headache. The overall adjustment of the organism is improved – dysphoria recedes, as do states of asthenia, physical condition and overall strength improve, intellectual activity, ability to inter-react and concentrate are increased.
Children with West's syndrome, who mostly do not respond to treatment with anti-epileptic drugs, are “revived” upon treatment with our amino-acid preparations. It is hard to imagine the relief of parents when instead of for example 65-70 seizures (infantile spasms) per day their children have only 5-7 seizures.
Children become awakened, more lively, alert and begin to familiarise themselves with the world around them. The parents of our patients often say that they see their child smile for the first time.
Amino-acid preparations help harmonise excitation and inhibition processes in neurons in patients with epilepsy, thus bringing about a reduction of the epileptic activity of the brain. They also support neurogenesis, thus producing a positive effect also in children with disorders of psychomotor development.
