Jaseja H. Meditation may predispose to epilepsy : an insight into alteration in brain environment induced by meditation. Med Hypotheses, 2005;64(3):464-7. *[PubMed]

“Neuro-imaging and in-depth studies during the course and attainment of meditational state have revealed alteration in neuro-chemistry and neuro-physiology of brain environment that could favor epileptogenesis.” “Based on these changes in brain, this paper raises a grave possibility and risk of meditation in developing epilepsy or increasing the severity and frequency of attacks in an already epileptic state, contrary to the popular belief of its remedial role in alleviating epilepsy.”
