Alternative Medicine/alternative treatment for seizures


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

Hello Nikki,

I am so very sorry to hear about the seizures.  Please make sure you are NOT doing any artificial sweeteners of any kind. I would also be sure to take food dyes out of your diet as well as MSG and anything else that is not REAL food that you can purchase around the edge of the grocery stores.

Here are herbals that have been traditionally used for seizures
Gaba - but can't be mixed with some medications so check with your pharmacist. This is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that calms brain activity.
Focus Attention - can affect inhibitory neurotransmitters
Distress remedy - can be used with any medications
Helichrysum essential oil applied to the temples can be beneficial in helping to prevent a seizure
Lots and lots of good fats like Super Omega 3 (pharmaceutical grade)Extra Virgin organic coconut oil, Super GLA, avocados, fish from the ocean, nuts, olives and olive oil
Vitamin B Complex
Feeding the thyroid with herbals like TSII  which are sea vegetables
Wood Bentony
