  • I personally have a mirena coil, it stops my periods which consequently keeps things on an even keel through each month. It’s best this way for me, as I have uncontrolled epilepsy.

  • I’m so happy today because my son is now cured and free from epilepsy. My 16 years old son was epileptic autistic, it was actually discovered on him when he was just 2 and 6 years old respectively and ever since he had lived with the both worse disorders. I tried my best to pay attention to him because i was so concerned and did’t want to loose my only son to Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). When my doctor first confirmed to me that my son’s epileptic case could result to SUDEP anytime sooner i was so afraid and i needed something that will permanently cure both epilepsy and autism from him and this was when my own medical doctor advised me to go for local natural herbs medications. I immediately heeded to the advice and was directed to one herbal Dr. Bude whose email is [email protected] gmail com. I contacted him and after a while i ordered some herbs cure from him which he shipped to my address and in just 4 days i got them in Cincinnati. I gave my son the herbs for only weeks and that was the end of my son’s epilepsy and serous autism. For almost 4 years now my son had not experienced Epileptic disorder neither has he developed signs of Autism again. Thanks to Dr. Bude for helping me and my son, his life has been brighter since knowing that he’s free and won’t experience autism and epilepsy again, now my son communicates more fluently and better. If you or your family member is having epileptic or autistic disorder, then you can simply email Dr. Bude on [email protected] gmail com or call and whatsapp text him directly on +2348100663964.

  • Very informative. Thanks dr. My daughter age 31 has epilepsy. She was 19 years when she got viral encephalitis. Since then she has siezure. And she also has hormonal imbalance.
