Resumo


A epilepsia é considerada uma doença neurológica enigmática pela forma de manifestação de seus sinais e sintomas. É importante notar que a prática da espiritualidade/religiosidade pode impactar positivamente na qualidade de vida de pacientes com doenças neurológicas, em particular a epilepsia, sendo considerada uma forma de enfrentamento e tratamento complementar da doença. Dessa forma, o objetivo deste trabalho foi apresentar informações referentes aos possíveis benefícios da prática da espiritualidade/religiosidade como forma de tratamento alternativo de pacientes com essa condição. Esta pesquisa consistiu de ampla revisão de literatura realizada na base de dados PubMed. Para a seleção dos artigos, dentro da temática de interesse (27 no total), foram utilizados os descritores “epilepsy”, “spirituality”, “religiosity”, “quality of life” e “religion” bem como seus cruzamentos. Além disso, foram utilizados outros artigos que apontavam as definições, a classificação, os aspectos históricos e epidemiológicos e as diretrizes do manejo da epilepsia. Foi possível concluir que a prática da espiritualidade/religiosidade somada ao tratamento convencional pode ser uma alternativa a ser recomendada pelos profissionais da saúde, pois impacta positivamente na qualidade de vida de pacientes com epilepsia.
