Coconut oil is highly effective in the treatment of epilepsy. The fatty acids (medium-chain triglycerides) in coconut oil have therapeutic effects on brain cells. Moreover, they supply energy for the brain cells, which helps relieve symptoms of epilepsy.
Have 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin coconut oil 3 times a day. You can gradually increase the amount to a few tablespoons a day.
Also, use coconut oil for cooking, in salad dressings and as a spread.
Studies show that Epsom salt is also effective in reducing seizures in people with epilepsy. The magnesium sulfate in Epsom salt changes physiochemical cell relationships in the brain, which in turn lessens the frequency of seizures and convulsions.
Crush pure grade Epsom salt into a very fine powder. Add ½ teaspoon of the powder to a glass of orange juice or water and drink it each morning.
You can also enjoy relaxing and soothing Epsom salt baths 2 or 3 times a week.
A popular Ayurvedic remedy for epilepsy is limes. Limes help improve blood circulation to the brain. Moreover, they help normalize excessive calcium that may hamper brain functionality.
Mix 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice and ½ teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. Drink it daily before going to bed.
You can also apply fresh lime juice on your head and massage thoroughly for a few minutes. Do this daily before taking a shower.
The herb passionflower also helps reduce seizures. It contains a chemical known as chrysin, which helps increase the amount of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. This in turn reduces frequency of seizures as well as anxiety.
