6 natural herbs to treat epileptic seizures


By On 14/09/2020 1


Epilepsy or better known as epileptic disease is a chronic disorder, characterized by recurrent seizures that are not triggered. A person is diagnosed with epilepsy if they experience seizures for no reason. Seizures in epilepsy may be related to brain injury or familial predispositions, but often the cause is completely unknown. Many people with epilepsy have more than one type of seizure and may have other symptoms of neurological problems. Although the seizure symptoms can affect any part of the body, the electrical events that produce these symptoms occur in the brain. Seizures due to epilepsy can affect safety, relationships, work, driving, and more. Public perception and treatment of people with epilepsy is often a bigger problem than seizures themselves, writes the Epilepsy Foundation. To overcome this, some people with epilepsy turn to natural treatments and alternative therapies to help relieve their symptoms or complement their treatments. Here are some natural ways to treat epilepsy according to Healthline.




natural remedy for epilepsy

Herbal treatments have become more and more popular in recent years, with nature being extremely beneficial when it comes to cures for a multitude of ailments and conditions (herbal extracts are the basis for over 30% modern pills). The herbs most commonly used as an adjunct treatment for epilepsy are: ash / "fire plan", cross, lizards, vase, Pepin, peony, wolf's mouth.

After 25 years of extensive research,  Dawasante experts have discovered the best natural herbs to cure epilepsy. This natural remedy is active in all epileptic seizures. Thus, it is suitable for children as well as adults. Modern medicine offers drugs for epilepsy. Unfortunately, these drugs often have many disastrous side effects and are not always effective. They inhibit seizures but are not curative. Trust us! Our natural treatment is the secret to preventing epileptic seizures from herbs.

At present, there is no sufficient scientific evidence to prove that these herbal remedies are successful in treating epileptic seizures. Most of the evidence is anecdotal.

Some people believe that the sedative properties of linden bark help relax the nervous system.

Likewise, an investigation carried out by several students from a University of Mexico showed that linden helped to control hypertension, which would help in epilepsy episodes.

However, for safe consumption, it is only recommended taking it every 3 days.

Orange flower water is a classic flavouring for pastry preparations and creams. It is calming and antispasmodic (epilepsy).


Peony (Peonia officinalis). 

Peony - health benefits and therapeutic value

Medicinal peonies (Paeonia officinalis) are more than just beautiful spring flowers, they also boast many properties that help care for health and live better. The decoction of the root of this plant is indicated in all diseases of the nerves. 20 grams of the root are boiled in a liter of water for 15 minutes. It is indicated in epilepsy, chorea, tremors and convulsive coughs.


Valerian (Valeriana officinalis, L.). 

What is Valerian? - Simply Catnip

Valerian is an herb. It is native to Europe and parts of Asia but also grows in North America. Medicine is made from the root​. It is prescribed for epilepsy, eclampsia, hysteria, hot flashes, neurosis, chorea, and nervous disorders of the heart and digestive system.  A handful of valerian, previously soaked in a liter of boiling water, which is then poured into the water, has the same effect as when taken orally.



According to having epilepsy can make it feel like you are not in complete control of your life. You can do your best to take back control by following these three steps: Work in partnership with your doctor. Keep track of information, such as when you have the seizures and the side effects of your medications. Ask questions. There are many resources available to help you manage your epilepsy and live a happy, healthy, productive life.




Lifestyle changes and complementary or alternative treatments for epileptic seizures

This topic is too often neglected but can have a major, positive impact on seizure control. Though there is little evidence for the effectiveness of most complementary and alternative medications, healthy lifestyle changes can go a long way toward reducing the risk of having a seizure.

Your neurologist should address these questions with you before developing a treatment plan:

● How is your sleep quality?

● Do you have chronic anxiety, depression, or excessive stress?

● Do you take other medications that may affect your epilepsy medication or directly increase the risk you will have a seizure?

● Does your use of alcohol, caffeine, or herbal remedies affect your seizure control?

The complementary and alternative therapies below can be added to your treatment plan. Because there is not a lot of medical research on their effectiveness for epilepsy, it’s important to discuss each treatment with your neurologist:   

● Acupuncture

● Aerobic exercise

● Biofeedback (training to voluntarily control seizures)

● Meditation

● Yoga

I don’t hesitate to recommend aerobic exercise and meditation for all my patients — both usually are win-win treatments! It’s rare that doctors would recommend only lifestyle changes or complementary/alternative treatments for epilepsy; however, these might work sometimes. 

I recently had a patient who, after experiencing a single seizure, was diagnosed with a genetic form of epilepsy. She was a student whose seizure occurred after several nights of staying up late studying and drinking alcohol excessively. It was clear that her risk of having a seizure was higher than normal. However, it was possible that in the setting of a healthier lifestyle this might not occur. After discussing options, she and her parents decided to delay taking medication and first try to make lifestyle changes, including getting more sleep and minimizing or avoiding alcohol. 

There is not much evidence that herbal remedies help with epilepsy. But medical marijuana, which is number four on this list, proves that plants have chemicals that can stop epileptic seizures (see below). At this time, we know of no other natural herb that helps with seizures. In fact, some herbs, such as the Chinese herb ma huang, can trigger or worsen seizures. Ma huang is a natural ephedra, which is similar to a stimulant hormone in our bodies. Stimulants tend to worsen seizures, so doctors are hesitant to recommend any herbal remedies at this time.




For many years, a special diet has been used to control certain types of epilepsy. One in particular – the ketogenic diet – gained public attention with the 1997 movie “First Do No Harm.” In this film, which is based on a true story, Meryl Streep plays the mother of a son whose epilepsy fails to respond to conventional treatments, including epilepsy surgery. She takes him to Johns Hopkins Medical Center, which pioneered the use of the ketogenic diet and demonstrated its effectiveness. Her son responded wonderfully to the diet and became seizure-free.

The ketogenic diet is strict. It severely limits carbohydrates and maximizes fats and proteins. This low-carbohydrate diet triggers ketosis, an alternate metabolic pathway in the body that somehow works against seizures. Variations in the amount of fats and proteins relative to the amount of carbohydrates is allowed. One such variation is the Modified Atkins Diet.

The ketogenic diet is challenging and is used mostly for children. A few studies have shown its effectiveness in adults, but, as one might expect, it’s difficult for most adults to maintain such a strict diet. Choosing this type of therapy requires support from experienced nurses, dietitians, and physicians who can help guide food and drink choices.
