Classification and Types of Epilepsy Apasmara

Ayurveda classifies epilepsy into four types, individually originating in the disordered states of the three dosas (humors): Vatika Apasmara, Paittika Apasmara, and Slaismika Apasmara, or all combined. The fourth type, the Sannipatika form of the disease, is caused by the simultaneous vitiation of all three dosas and is incurable; however, it is open to palliative measures. An unusual feature of all four types of epilepsy is the sudden manifestation of violent symptoms without any warning and also the sudden disappearance of symptoms without treatment (2,4).
