Epilepsy and seasonal sickness

Every year there are seasonal sicknesses that we may experience for example, flu and colds. During this period have you noticed an increase in seizures? Well here’s some advice to help the situation.

Exercise and healthy eating are linked to the immune system. When we maintain a good level of fitness we will also become sick less often, and when we do become sick we will likely experience less symptoms than when we’re unfit, this will lower seizures during this period.

Sickness puts huge stress on the body, which is a cause of seizures, so our immune systems are key.

There are many examples of healthy eating diets and exercise online and on apps such as youtube. You can also get advice from your fitness trainers and your GP.
