In the 22 March 2015 edition of THE STAR Online, a news source in Adelaide, South Australia, Prof Datuk Tan Chong Tin (senior consultant in neurology, University Malaya Medical Centre) posits that culture has a major influence on how epilepsy is viewed and understood. He writes,
In many cultures, epilepsy is regarded negatively as a form of demon possession, or reflection of sin committed by ancestors. For example, in many Asian societies, it is perceived as a form of madness, reflected in the terms used for epilepsy. For example, both the two words used in Chinese for epilepsy, “Dian Xian” mean “madness”. Similarly “gila babi” in Malay. In Laos, the saliva of epilepsy patients is thought to be able to transmit the disease, so patients are often not encouraged to eat together at the same table with other family members. It is easy to understand why epilepsy patients who live in these cultures would face discrimination because of the disease (http://www.thestar.com.my/Lifestyle/Health/2015/03/22/How-epilepsy-is-perceived-in-different-cultures/).
Throughout the world the epilepsies are fraught with unfound truth. While the knowledge base about the epilepsies has grown exponentially in recent decades, a profoundly clear understanding has yet to be achieved, even in the most advanced societies. For instance, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the cause of epilepsy is unknown for about 70% of the people diagnosed with the Neurological Disorder. Before thinking poorly about such a huge failing percentage, a look at the history of epilepsy demonstrates the quantum leap the knowledge base has grown in the last century. Here is an extremely cursory look at how epilepsy knowledge has changed over time:
1800 B.C. Assyria, Akkadia, and Babylonia recognize epilepsy.
1760 B.C. The famous Code of Hammurabi issues regulations regarding the right of return for those who have purchased a “diseased slave”. The world-view of epilepsy at this time attributed epilepsy to supernatural causes calling it “what has fallen from heaven” (Sumarian).
400 B.C. Hippocrates authors, On the Sacred Disease, suggesting epilepsy is the result of natural causes and not of sacred origin.
1487 Malleus Maleficarum (The Hammer of Witches) is published in Germany. A dissertation on witch-hunting, the author posits epilepsy to be both the result of a spell cast by a witch and proof-positive that epilepsy is a sign of being a witch.
1757 People living with epilepsy in Sweden are forbidden by law to marry.
1857 Sir Charles Locock introduces Bromides as medicinal treatment for epilepsy, a treatment considered as best treatment practice over the next 50 years.
1895 United States House Bill 681 forbid people living with epilepsy from marrying or co-habitating. This Bill would not be overturned until 1953.
1896 Modeled after a colony in Bielefeld, Germany, “Craig Colony for Epileptics” opens its doors in Sonyea, NY.
1904 “Having been in practice for years and dedicating his services to people with epilepsy as the Medical Superintendent at Craig Colony for Epileptics, William P. Spratling is often considered to be the first epileptologist. In fact, he coined the term in 1904 to describe himself and other neurologists who specialized in the treatment of epilepsy. All epileptologists are neurologists, but not all neurologists are epileptologists.”
1907 “People with epilepsy have been denied many rights throughout the ages including education and work training. In 1907, legislation denying immigrants with epilepsy (as well as tuberculosis and physical disabilities) was passed. Indiana was the first state to officially pass a eugenics law in relation to sterilization of individuals, including idiots and imbeciles, in state custody. People with epilepsy were not specifically mentioned; however, in the early 1900s, terms such as idiots, imbeciles and feebleminded were used interchangeably when referring to people with epilepsy. Many other states followed suit with sterilization laws, many of which specifically targeted people with epilepsy. The last of Indiana’s mandatory sterilization laws were removed on February 13, 1974. The eugenics laws of the United States influenced Nazi eugenics during the Holocaust.”
1907 Immigrants arriving at Ellis Island with epilepsy were denied entrance to the United States.
1935 The Electroencephalogram (EEG) was introduced and brain waves could be monitored during seizures.
1936 The American Epilepsy Society was born.
1968 The Epilepsy Foundation of America was born.
This history was obtained from Epilepsy Education Everywhere (http://epilepsyed.org/history-of-epilepsy/).
Today despite major progress in our understanding of how the brain works and why it causes people have seizures, the epilepsies remain the most common and most mysterious neurological issues. Gaining a clear understanding of the epilepsies is extremely important to American veterans who have sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (Concussion) because of the proven causal relationship between brain injuries and post traumatic epilepsy. If you are a military service member or a veteran and suspect you may have had a brain injury, seek help because you may be having seizures and not know it. Don’t allow yourself to be ignorant by choice or by laziness. When it comes to epilepsy, ignorance is in no way, shape, form, or fashion blissful. Ignorance of the epilepsies harm our American veterans.
