Our 12 year old son had an atonic seizure about 6 weeks ago. This was his first and only (so far). It occurred while he was listening to Holosync meditation, which uses binaural beats. At the time, he was also exhausted from school activities and stressed about a solo violin recital the next day. His MRI was negative. His EEG showed some general epileptiform abnormalities after they sleep deprived him, had him hyperventilate, and strobed a light in his eyes. He saw a pediatric neurologist who recommends Keppra, which apparently has some baggage. We are reluctant to to start this medication. There does appear to be a correlation between binaural beat meditation and seizures in people with epilepsy and we don't think it gave him an abnormal EEG. He was probably at silently at risk and the meditation MAY have triggered him by synchronizing his brain waves. It was stupid to let him do this before he was 18. Our pediatric neurologist knew nothing about this association and just fired off a Rx. I am wondering if anybody here knows of a specialist in Epilepsy who has experience with the effects of meditation. Really, we a looking for someone to agree with us that he doesn't need the med...but if a person who is versed in this issue strongly recommends the med, we will do it. Thanks so much.
