President of Republican Atheists shares experience with epilepsy

Lauren Ell, president of Republican Atheists, shared her experience of living with epilepsy in a recent interview with International Maternity & Parenting Institute.

In the interview Ell explains how she began having seizures at 21 years old and navigated her way to finding a solution.

According to EndEpilepsy.org..

Seizures are symptoms of epilepsy. Epilepsy is the underlying tendency of the brain to produce sudden abnormal bursts of electrical energy that disrupt other brain functions.

Seizures and epilepsies are far more common than most people realize. Over the span of a lifetime, 1 in 10 people will have a seizure, and 1 in 26 will be diagnosed with epilepsy. About 1% of the population currently has epilepsy — that’s about 160,000 in our region and about 65 million in the world.
