Epilepsy is a disorder within the brain wherein repeated seizures occur. Seizures vary from a glassy stare for a few seconds (petit mal) to severe convulsions (grand mal). The cause of such seizures is related to unusual electrical signals generated in the brain. The causes of this unusual brain activity includes congenital defects, injury during birth, dietary deficiencies, some suggest food allergies, illnesses in later life, trauma to the brain, etc. A single seizure does not constitute epilepsy but repeated seizures are diagnosed as epilepsy. For children with epilepsy they may outgrow the episodes with age.
