Epilepsy is one of the most afflictive diseases of our time. It is a chronic brain disorder with seizures being the characteristic symptom. It is most prevalent in developing countries and people in these regions who are distressed by the grave symptoms of this disease, rarely have access to the proper medication or treatment. Epileptics have faced discrimination and social stigmatization ever since the disease was first identified.


Although medical treatments for epilepsy exist, such as anti-epileptic drugs, few epileptics are relieved by them. In developing countries, it is estimated that only about 4 to 10 people from 1000 epileptics will receive the proper treatment. However, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, an ancient and powerful technique for the treatment of some of the world’s most severe diseases, including epilepsy, is practiced at a medical centre known as The Tole.

Dato' Master Tole and The Tole

Dato' Master Tole is a neuro-acupuncturist and physician. He comes from a line of Chinese medical practitioners, who have passed down their secret knowledge of herbal remedies and acupuncture to him. He has received the honourable title of ‘Master’ because presently, he alone holds his family’s knowledge.

Dato' Master Tole founded The Tole Acupuncture Herbal Medication Centre in 1992 and since then, the centre has given solace and therapyto the hundreds of people who come to it, suffering from life threatening diseases such as cancer, hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver.

Epilepsy cure with Thetole

In acupuncture, epilepsy is known as ‘xianzhen’ which means ‘epilepsy syndrome’. A patient who has had at least two or more seizures is said to be epileptic. The cause of the seizures is a rapid and abrupt electrical discharge in the brain.

Thetole's Neuro Acupuncture involves inserting needles into strategic points on the body to stimulate the nerves and enhance neuro-electric activity in the body. Using Thetole's Neuro Acupuncture, and his own prescription of herbal medicine, Dato' Master Tole will treat patients with epilepsy. He inserts four needles into the brain, which stimulate proper ‘Qi’ (energy) flow, and counter the cause of epilepsy.

Dato' Master Tole’s technique has been shown to have healing effects on his patients. His herbal treatment methods have enjoyed success for over 145 years now, but the Master remains as humble as he was when The Tole was first opened. His belief in his methods isfirm and he talks about his treatment in wise words:

“Needles don’t really hurt. The sensation is like an ant bite — it’s either a big one or small one. But it’s not only about acupuncture, I also recommend herbs to complement the therapy and advise them (patients) on lifestyle changes.”

The Tole treatment for epilepsy normally takes between 1 and 6 months. Furthermore, The Tole can also ship the appropriate herbal medication to different parts of the world, for those in need of it. Dato' Master Tole’s reputation has grown over the years and today, The Tole helps people from all parts of the world who feel that traditional medication and drugs have failed them.
