Partial epilepsy: It is localized in a specific area of ​​the brain, and symptoms vary from person to person according to the affected part of the brain, and sometimes it is difficult to distinguish partial epilepsy, and sometimes it turns into generalized epilepsy where the electrical signals that affect part of the brain spread to the rest of the brain and make up the proportion of those with partial epilepsy to 70% of cases of infection. Genetic causes of epilepsy: The genetic factor plays a major role in the development of epilepsy. Injury: A head injury may cause the brain to suffer epilepsy, and some studies have shown that 17% of epilepsy cases have had a head injury, and the injury may be among children, especially newborns, as they are more likely to fall, and this fall may have an impact on the brain without affecting the brain. The patient knows.

Tormeron works to regenerate and multiply stem cells, the damage of which is the main problem in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, and it also promotes the differentiation of stem and nerve cells, a key process in regenerative medicine, and prevents cell death, which is associated with dementia diseases in old age.

Previous studies had proven that turmeric eliminates cancer cells and prevents tumors from forming in the first place by activating proteins in the body, which proves the effectiveness of the turmeron element that will pull the rug out of the curcumin element, which was believed to be solely responsible for the benefits of this amazing spice.11 Advice for an epileptic before and after a seizure
