'Epilepsy: A Cleveland Clinic Guide' by Elaine Wyllie, M.D.

CLEVELAND, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Epilepsy doesn't have to run or ruin your life. Here is required reading for anyone who has epilepsy or a loved one with the disease. "Epilepsy: A Cleveland Clinic Guide" from http://www.clevelandclinicpress.org/ [Cleveland Clinic Press] is an enlightening consumer health book that demystifies epilepsy and empowers patients to help control their seizures and their lives.

Written by Dr. Elaine Wyllie, a world-renowned pediatric neurologist and epilepsy specialist at http://www.clevelandclinic.org/ [Cleveland Clinic], this epilepsy book tells readers the truth about the definition of seizures, their underlying causes, and ways to treat epilepsy with medicine, surgery, and alternative therapies.

"Over the years, I have frequently noticed that while patients and their loved ones have been informed of various aspects of the epileptic condition they're dealing with, they're left alone when it comes to knowing what to expect and how to handle the disease as it evolves," writes Dr. Wyllie in her book about epilepsy. "In this book, I've attempted to close that gap by linking information directly with the appropriate action steps."

Based on dozens of case studies from the nationally recognized Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Center, this comprehensive medical guide explains in simple terms the physical, emotional, and psychological components of epilepsy. Dr. Wyllie's epilepsy book also addresses how the disease affects women, children, and seniors.

Most of all, Dr. Wyllie illustrates that there's plenty of hope for the millions of people who have some form of epilepsy.
