Conditions that irritate the brain—such as injuries, certain drugs, sleep deprivation, infections, fever—or that deprive the brain of oxygen or fuel—such as abnormal heart rhythms, a low level of oxygen in the blood, or a very low level of sugar in the blood—can trigger a single seizure whether a person has a seizure disorder or not.
Some people and certain belief systems regard seizures as a result of demonic activity. In my spiritual view and knowledge, I don’t that there is any demonic activities causing seizures. From my point of view, the spirit world is peaceful and there are no demons out there.
“Where I live there is a large immigrant community for the Pacific Islands, mostly Tonga and Samoa. They are nearly all very religious and the church plays a major role in their lives. Nothing wrong with that of course, but unfortunately epilepsy still seems to be the work of the devil/possession by a lot of the reverends and the older members of the community.” – Kay
