Stop Epilepsy Seizures During Sleep: Breathing Remedy
more you breathe (deeper and/or faster), the less oxygen and blood are delivered to your
brain. (This fact has been confirmed by dozens of medical studies - see the
links below.) Clinical experience of nearly 200 Russian medical doctors with hundreds of
epileptics (including children) suggests that one can have seizures during sleep, if and
only if he or she has an irregular, ineffective or/and heavy automatic respiratory pattern (i.e.,
if one has hyperventilation),
mouth breathing and/or chest breathing.
Furthermore, numerous medical studies have confirmed the link between low CO2
levels in the arterial blood (due to hyperventilation) and chances of seizures
while sleeping (see the links on dozens of studies below). Hence, when you overbreathe, you have less oxygen and CO2 in the
in most people becomes more irregular and abnormal
during night sleep and especially early
morning hours. Hence, it is a known medical fact that early morning hours
have the highest rates of seizures during sleep. Russian
MDs also found that people with normal breathing never
develop any sleep seizures. Hence, the goal is to normalize one's automatic or
unconscious breathing or to breathe normally 24/7.
An additional, recently discovered factor for sleep seizures and low body
oxygenation is electrical charge of the human body. When the body is connected
with Earth (due to barefoot walking, sleeping on ground or skins of animals, and
so on), the body has a slight negative charge (an excess of electrons). Modern
people have a very high positive charge (due to static electricity) that often
achieves hundreds or many thousands of Volts (as during electrical discharge from
the body to surrounding metal objects). Therefore, grounding alone often stops
all sleep seizures in children and adults.
Here is a program developed by Russian physicians (slightly
modified with the addition of electrical grounding) and tested on
hundreds of people with epilepsy and seizures while sleeping.
It involves correction of lifestyle risk factors in order
to increase body oxygenation by making our breathing lighter
(slower) and more regular during sleep.
Lifestyle changes to prevent seizures during sleep
1. You need to ground
yourself for sleep so as to be electrically connected with the negative charge of
Earth (see Earthing for more detail)
2. If you find that your
mouth is often dry in the morning, use this Manual "How
to maintain nasal breathing 24/7"
3. If you sleep on your back at least 2-3 nights per week, use
How to Prevent Sleeping on
Back. (If you are uncertain about effects of sleeping positions, study
tens of medical studies from Best
Sleep Positions Medical Research Summary.) Ideally, try to alternate between
sleeping on your chest (the prone sleeping position) and the left side. (Sleeping
sitting is an even better option to avoid sleep seizures.)
4. Make sure that you have good air quality (positive and negative ions
or windows open, no carpets on the floor, etc.).
5. Do not overheat yourself by using too warm blankets.
6. Have your supper earlier (4-5 pm) and eat only a small snack later, if
you get hungry at 8-10 pm.
7. Do more physical exercise during the day with strictly nose
8. Increase your evening body oxygen level or CP (when you go to sleep) as much as possible.
Use the belt technique for
diaphragmatic breathing during your night sleep to prevent chest breathing and
hyperventilation causing seizures during sleep
10. Most importantly, you need to increase body oxygenation (the morning result for the DIY body oxygen test) in the morning up to X+ seconds. The number X is provided in the next paragraph as your bonus content.

more than 35 s for the body-oxygen test, you will be free from all
types of sleep seizures.
