Acupressure Techniques to Stop Chronic Convulsion in Small Children

This post is about acupressure techniques used to stop chronic convulsion in small children. If you have a child who is diagnosed with chronic convulsion or epilepsy and even though he or she is taking medications, and if the symptom still keeps coming back stay here and continue reading. 

It is very frustrating for parents to see their children suffer in a painful manner. That feeling when you know that this symptom will siege your child’s whole body and you have no control of stopping it is so damaging to the emotions and sometimes the spirit.

 When you look at the body of your child seizing, you see the suffering in the child’s eyes begging for help. And you cannot do anything. You can see the fear in their eyes with the first sign of a twitch. What they feel in their bodies is frightful. The seizures hurt every inch of muscle and they know it is painful when all the muscles start contracting all at once. Terrifying isn’t it? I cannot imagine my child suffer like this.

Manifestations of Infantile Convulsion

Children who had been battered with chronic convulsion will eventually become thin, with a pale complexion, weak as with lassitude, and lethargy. Eyes are open during a convulsion, with intermittent seizures, cold limbs, loose stools with undigested food, clear profuse urination, and deep week pulse.

The reason why the child can manifest the symptoms mentioned above is that a chronic illness damages the spleen and kidneys. In Chinese medicine, the spleen is the organ in which metabolism of food occurs and provides yin energy. The food is the source of yin metabolized in the spleen and the kidney is the source of yang taken from yin which balances the two energies. If the two energies the yin, and yang are balanced, the body function is harmonious and free of sickness. This may sound confusing to you because, in internal medicine, this theory does not make sense at all. But please take note that this remedy is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, not Modern Medicine. So I have to make a differentiation between the two before you will dispute this post.
