Question
I was recently diagnosed with epilepsy, I have grand mal seizures, is there any vitamins, supplements, oils, herbs, teas, or special foods i could use to decrease my amount of seizures?

Answer
Hi Nikki,,
An analogy I can give you about seizures is that they are usually caused  by a short circuit of neurons in the brain. Medications help manage how the neurotransmitters fire and interact with the receptors. I  am sorry to say that there are no supplements, natural remedies, alternative medicines that will be as effective as regular medications in preventing seizures.
Thank you for using Allexperts,
Sincerely,
