The word encephalic means affecting or involving the brain; ‘ids’ on the end of any word means inflammation. Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain, which is an extremely serious condition and is not one to be dealt with at home. This can occur at any age.

Severe headache and any neurological symptoms such as visual disturbance, numbness, tingling, unsteadiness, dizziness or feeling faint, may all represent an encephalitis and any such symptoms that persist or are associated with drowsiness, loss of consciousness or even coma must be considered.


Any unexplained neurological symptoms should be assessed by a doctor immediately, especially if loss of consciousness or pain is associated.

Use Aconite 30 every 15min on the way to the physician.
