All these work for my frontal lobe seizures : Valerian. Also Yogi Caramel bedtime tea and Celestial Seasons tea with valerian.


I need to find a Dr in South Bend, In. or Chicago downtown, that treats frontal lobe epilepsy. I will refuse all medications unless they are natural. I take valerian for my seizures, it works fine. I was harshly criticized by a Neurologist for this, but I DO NOT CARE.

Dear Deborah,

When taking coconut oil for medicinal purposes, I use extra virgin and have taken it any number of ways - in coffee, off the spoon, mixed into oatmeal, added to cooked vegetables etc. While I do cook with it some, I am suspecting that some of the nutrients (enzymes, perhaps) would be lost in cooking, so don't count that as part of my daily dose of coconut oil, if I am taking it for medicinal purposes.

Frankincense Essential Oil

After struggling with signs of stroke for 2 weeks after 4 vaccinations in one office visit, my 2-year old granddaughter has been left with a seizure disorder. Since her pediatrician refused to help us heal her, we looked for natural cures while searching for another doctor. Frankincense essential oil has been a lifesaver. She is seizure free unless she contracts a cold, but even then only has a few while asleep and not the hundreds each day that she was having initially. We are waiting to be seen by a Functional Medical practitioner for some testing to see if we're dealing with heavy metals poisoning or gut dysbiosis, but being able to mitigate as much brain damage as possible and provide her some quality of life in the interim is priceless. Since she's so small, we dilute the Frankincense - 3 drops per 1 tsp of carrier oil which, for us, is typically fractionated coconut oil.

EC: Dear Melanie, thank you for your feedback on frankincense oil.

Can you please give us more information (in both of your posts) on where you applied the frankincense oil on the body? Also, did you spend time massaging it in? Thank you very much!

It's not legally banned everywhere. Im in Canada and epileptic and after 19 yrs of uncontrolled seizures I was able to get my drivers license from being seizure free completely for 6 months. I went vegan and all my seizures stopped. After 19yrs of "drug resistant epilepsy" I'm still on pills put finally can drive.

T.He most common trigger for seizures is the neurotoxic substances used as favor enhancers in food.. msg, aspartame and the worst, modified food starch are all neurotoxins which excite the neurons in the brain literally to death. Dr Russel Blaylock has studied these substances and labels them excitotoxins. He has found that aside from giving seizures, many forms of cancer and migraine from hell that these neurotoxic substances literally kill neurons in the brain.

Cancer researchers are astounded at the speed of growth and ferocity exhibited by cancer cells when exposed to these neurotoxic chemicals.

Msg, modified food starch and aspartame cause cancer cells to grow pseudopodia octopus like tentacles which they use to invade nearby tissue when they wish to become more aggressive and metastatic..

Brain tumor has a potential of inducing seizures and these chemicals encourage cancer growth and development..

These same chemicals help to induce seizures therefore restricting the diet of all forms of free glutamic acid is the best starting point to control seizures Read the writings of Dr Russel Blaylock about these dangerous neurotoxins.

Here is another good article for you about diet and how to control seizures naturally

How much Epsom salt should be added to the bath? My son has had seizures since he was 12 or 13, we have only tried medication (Tegretol) and at one point he would be seizure free for close to a year he is now 24 and they are more frequent, maybe 3 times a month, I'm going to try most of what I've read from others on this site. Can't be any worse than what we are already experiencing.

Thanks everyone, God Bless you all.

Ketogenic Diet

Hi Osiris,

We all wish you the best of luck helping your child with the Ketogenic diet. John's Hopkins hospital in Baltimore was the birthplace of the diet, and it is described in Julia Schopick's best seller book, "Honest Medicine." Another resource is The Charlie Foundation, created by a man in Hollywood after researching and finding success using it with his son Charlie. He made a movie about it starting Meryl Strep called "First Do No Harm" or something similar. Here is a resource to that foundation:

Best wishes and please let us know how it works out for your son. The diet is also effective for adults.

Hi, just in regard to your article about the use of 'meditation' ... I have temporal lobe epilepsy and was advised by my Neurologist that meditation could be more harmful to someone with this condition due to our hyper active minds, it could be hard to silence our mind? He suggested using repetitive tasks, like walking, writing etc or any task that involves using methods which assist the body, to become more 'grounded' Long story, but finding a 'meditation with movement' seems to work for me ... ex: I study a lot of philosophy and I have read that 'Einstein recommended that (for a man) ~ early morning shaving was a great way to focus the mind at the beginning of the day ...

A very common trigger for seizures is the ever increasing amount of excitotoxins in our food. Certain substances have the ability to stimulate neurons to the point of killing brain cells by over stimulation. Free glutamic acid is a really bad thing for causing dangerous neuronal stimulation. When the amino acid bonds are broken that link glutamate to other amino acids the result is glutamate can readily bond with glutamate receptors on brain cells (same with cancer cells). It is kinda like having a car with the gas pedal stuck going wide open fast as it can go. What are the usual sources for free glutamic acid? Aspartame, modified food starch and msg.

Dr Russel Blaylock might soon be your best friend. Read his articles and books to understand the problem in depth. You need to avoid all forms of free glutamic acid like the plague. That is not an easy chore since modified food starch is deliberately put in almost everything you eat these days.

Aside from excitotoxins, food allergies can also trigger seizures. Damage to the intestines can result in intestinal permeability. Candida can do that as it grows roots called hyphae through the intestinal wall and into the blood stream. An example, cancer patients invariably have tons of cellular debris in their blood from candida hyphae and foreign proteins entering through damaged intestinal lining. Serrapeptase, a systemic enzyme, quickly acts to digest all this cellular debris cleansing the blood and thereby reducing autoimmune reactions to foreign proteins. Serrapeptase also acts as a very powerful anti-inflammatory, reducing brain swelling. Often doctors give steroidal anti-inflammatories which certain organisms feed off of such as mycoplasma. End result is the patient often gets worse after treatment instead of better.

A host of many different types of virus and mycoplasma can initiate seizures as a result of brain swelling and inflammation. Its a good idea to get tested for viral types associated with causing seizures. If found then you are one step closer to a cure.

High dose vitamin c has helped quite a few to remain seizure free..

Boswellia herb has kept seizures under control for many as well. It is a powerful antiinflammatory that crosses the blood brain barrier. Works to control brain tumor too

Here is a cool article on a glutamate restricted diet that seems to greatly reduce seizures.

Omg, I was reading your post just like I would read what I do and what happens to me. I had an eating disorder for many years and some alcohol usage, but I'm not quite sure if only insulin and sugar balance is the reason. My seizures (CPS-space and language related) started about 4 years ago, when I was still binging, and got more often and more and then finally I got grand Mal and it got serious. This was over 1,5 years ago (I'm 37 now) I'm also natural and don't believe in drugs. I have noticed very close correlation between my food intake and seizures. Almost every time I have food, I have a seizureal now. But I remember eating good a lot of fats and having some relief, but I don't want to eat so much...I also was getting some results with intermittent fasting. When I did maybe 3-4 days of eating less, I could have even a week seizure free! But now they back :/ I do the coconut oil but not regularly. I will try to be consistent with it and see how it works. Thank you so much for sharing. Sending love...

People with Epilepsy have to have a year seizure free before they can drive. My husband went just over a year without a seizure, he then had one as he was about to do his theory and hasn't been able to drive since as he is having frequent seizures. I don't think Epileptics are banned from driving, they are just have to be under control for a certain length of time before considering it.

HI U ANDIMAY, , , , , , , , , , yep, I used Dilantin for 10 years some 30 years ago and got osteoporosis of the pelvis as a result. A fall two years ago resulted in a crushed T 12 vertabre. Your lymph system exits there and goes down both legs. My feet now stay swollen so I have to buy a size larger shoes. With swollen feet you have lost most of your balance, thus, I go up and down stairs like an infant. Life is just a bowl of cherries.

First seizure in high school/Dr.s believe it is caused by meningitis when I was a baby - myelin sheaths which insulate nerves were damaged and burned with high fever. Now 40 years later am beginning to understand amino acids and vitamins can help so heard about ketogenic diet - I figured I make it easy by taking 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil - 1 in morning and another in evening.

I started in April and haven't had a seizure in four months. Reading 'Rosie's' mention of coconut oil found out I should take more and I WILL. Haven't told Dr. what I've been doing but will when I build up a little more then he'll know not just the Vagus Nerve Stimulator works. Leon

Glutamic and Aspartic Acid
Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn) on 09/23/2015

HI U ANGELLA, , , , , , , , been down that black out trail from age 30 to about age 45. Went to all the biggies, Temple White, UBA, Mayo's and others. All said I was hyperventilating and I knew better. But I now think they were right and I was wrong. You can hyperventilate without deep breathing.

Stress will cause you to breath shallow and fast and not have time for your CO2 to build up. A Little Rock doctor put me on Dilantion, which is for epileptics and that drug wasted my bones away and now I have osteoporosis. I finally grew out of that condition and no longer have the black out problem, but I now have problems from the drugs that were prescribed for me.

If your daughter is a hard charger, then that may be her problem. Let me suggest that she learn how to breath. Babies know how to breath. Adults don't . I would go down lots of trails before I got on the Big Pharma Road. You will cut off your nose to spite your face. Take her to Dr Shallenberger or Dr Robert Rowen .

These drugs will haunt her until life's end.

My daughter who is now 22 years had her first seizure at 17. At the time she was diagnosed with a panic attack, especially because it was the night before a Major exam in Physics. She later went on to college, and 2 years later was diagnosed with epilepsy and placed on Epilim. She was non compliant as so one night I was called from a gym where he had another attack, hence the conclusion. This was in 2012. My observation however is that she seem to only get an attack whenever she ovulates and sometimes when she becomes upset or anxious. She seem pretty fine otherwise but the situation stresses me as I am afraid that this may occur when there is no one there to assist her.

Thanks for your suggestions.

A long time ago, in the 1950s and 1960s Dr Abram Hoffer discovered that there was a condition that could develop which caused varying degees of schizophrenia, bipolar, depression and ADHD as well as seizures and other physical symptoms.

This condition was called Pyroluria. This problem was caused by massive self reinforcing deficiencies of both vitamin B6 and Zinc. You should also be aware that there is much contentious dispute over the Hoffer research on Pyroluria between allopathic medicine and the orthomolecular doctors who discovered this problem and the apparent cure. But allopathic medicine has absolutely no answer or cure for this problem -- whereas orthomolecular medicine, being much more honest(not just profit driven), does seem to have an explanation and a cure.

The easiest and cheapest way to find out your vitamin and mineral status is simply to get a hair analysis.

I would also advise that you switch to a doctor who is up-to-speed and knowledgeable concerning pyroluria if you want proper treatment. The treatment essentially consists of taking massive doses of zinc and B6 as well other vitamins. Therefore it is strongly advised that you also get professional help so that you can be monitored safely while taking these higher mineral/vitamin dosages.

Dr Walsh -- Pyroluria

Dr Walsh -- Low B6 and Zinc

I was diagnosed with epilepsy at 22. I was having seizures for about 2 years before getting an MRI and EEG. I was having mild seizures only lasting between 1-2 minutes. I had a poor diet and life style and if I didn't get enough sleep or had low sugar level or consumed alcohol the night before feeling stressed, I would nearly always have a seizure. I was having about one seizure every 2 weeks and was bruised nearly all of the time and my tongue was swollen most of the time. I traveled from the UK to Australia and started to see a naturopath regularly. (natural health doctor) I took all the vitamins that I got prescribed and started living alot more of a healthy, stress-free life. I've lived in Australia for two years and I've never had a seizure while living here.

I was in a house fire when I was 19, which left me with an 85% burn so the stress and high doses of painkillers I had taken contributed to my seizures, but I was still having regular seizures a year after I stopped taking any kind of pain killers, so I'm guessing something in my brain needed to neurologically heal and it did. I no longer take Lamotrigine medication and am still seizure free

I developed grand mal seizures at age 35. I would later discover that I was suffering from a little know medical condition called PDS. or Pyridoxine Deficency/Dependency Syndrome (a severe lack of vitamin B-6). Check a Merck Manual, or online for such information. And, since then, I have replaced the Dilantin I was taking, with one super high potency B vitamin tablet, along with a multivitamin tablet each day, as insurance against other known vitamin deficiency problems occurring. I have since been seizure free for 12 years now.

I'm back! We did have to act quickly as our son's epilepsy was picking up speed, and our son is on Depakote and the Ketogenic Diet (after meds "failed to control" within 6 weeks).

So, that being said we are 7 MONTHS seizure FREE, and still looking into causes/sources. After having a Epilepsy panel done, it is now known that his epilepsy is NOT genetic.

A friend and I keep circling back to the vitamin B deficiency. Seizures, poor dental, also rashes (rosy cheeks). We are looking into Biotin (vitamin B) deficiency as a possible source at this time as well.

Dear Dubby, If you have not tried the ketogenic diet I would do that. Also avoid glutamates and aspartates. That means NO MSG and in fact, no processed foods at all. The ketogenic diet limits carbohydrates and protein based on body mass. A 150 lb person may only have something like 10 grams of carbs a day. That can be entirely gained just through eating a few vegetables. So a diet high in natural fats and mostly green, mostly raw vegetables washed in distilled water. I would supplement with vitamins that have as much vitamin c as possible, and supervised body-temperature-ish baths (like 100 deg. F, NOT hot) with epsom salts. A shy person may bathe with the undergarments or a swimsuit on for privacy.

There should be more than one bowel movement per day on average, also take 1/2 tsp of epsom salts as needed to make BMs regular. This is required to clear the body of toxins.

if this is working you should see the effects within a matter of weeks or possibly even days. You can gradually increase the carb intake as long as they are good natural carbs, I.e. carrots, nuts and rice but not breads or grains with the exception of oats and flax.

To keep enough calories in his diet you will likely need to supplement with oils that are almost all fat. Use natural coconut and olive oils but not hydrogenated oils. Meals like spinach salad with other veggies and dressing made of vinegar and olive oil and a small helping of some fatty not-processed meat are a good choice.

Best of luck to you and your son!

I suffered with mild epilepsy for 14 years, only ever had 20 seizures before being medicated. I am depending upon tegretol but never really feeling myself, I could write pages on pages on how I figured out how to fix my epilepsy and my passion behind getting off the medication that I later found out was making the epilepsy worse when I was not depending on it. Anyways I am not trying to sell anything nor am I saying it will work for everyone.

I am only posting this because I wish I had have found this out 14 years ago and if I could help anyone that is going through it that is all I want, but here it is straight up:

*Vitamin b6 200mg twice a day ( whatever your body doesn't use , you pee out)

*vitamin d3 every second day (tegretol depletes your vitamin d levels ..)

* magnesium complete 1 tab per day

* 5-htp natural amino acid 1 capsule per day

*excercise at least half hour a day to boost positive hormones

* the main thing is: meditation!

Gain control of your own mind through letting go and you will be able to control anything; this being said I understand many people won't try it as it has been portrayed to be "alternative " and "hippie " and even I laughed when I heard about it for the first time, but not a word of a lie it works for me. * I also eat a healthy natural diet and use fluoride free tooth paste, as fluoride is a neuro-toxin which can not help things .and I try to avoid things with chemicals when I can help it . Don't get lazy, be strict with it, make time to meditate. I would like to add that I have been seizure free for 4 years now with no medication. It was scary at first and I failed twice only to learn that I did need to supplement as majority of the problem is just being deficient in b6 , magnesium , serotonin , and vitamin d3. I hope this helps someone or their parents who are desperately searching for answers to something that until recently they knew nothing about, or someone looking for answers that no one will post anywhere on the net.

I have had seizures since age 3, and I have been taking medicine my entire life since. Going from one medication to the next, my seizures have never been under control. I am now 42 and I take 3 different types of meds for my seizures. Doctors always say that one will work, then I go back for a prescription for a different med. I have thought that there is some medicine out there that works, I just have not found it

Reading about the many stories where people have tried coconut oil for different conditions, I thought that there maybe coconut oil could help with my epilepsy. I have only been taking a tablespoon a day for 1 week, but I can feel a change in myself. I feel more energy, motivation and I can tell my brain is much more clear. I am still taking medicine, I feel I will most likely be taking meds for the rest of my life. I figure if is something that will help, I am going to try, if it does not do the trick, it is very good for your hair. My family does not support me, I believe that my mother would. She passed 15 years ago. Hopefully, the coconut oil will help. I know there is no cure for epilepsy, but I pray that it can help me control my seizures.

Now I have moved from America to Indoniesa, I found that all natural foods I can eat lower the time of the seizures, and staying happy and organized, making the brain operate in high levels of thinking process, because seizures cause the brain to run in high speed so use this quality for life, it causes process of info much faster then the normal human, so use it and this will lower the levels of seizures and I believe it will cause your child to stop seizures. I am 53 and my seizures have almost gone, just from increasing the amount of info I make myself process, force it to work harder and soon you will see how fast your brain will operate at high speed, much faster then normal,, it works for me < but eat much natural foods only , no processed foods, of any kind and low on sugars, force your brain and body to work much hard, and you will see it likes it, and it will love this, it's like a food for the brain, read on foods for the brain, this is how I found and what I am doing now.

there is information on LiveStrong about magnesium deficiency and seizures.... Magnesium helps salt and potassium and calcium work properly to hold water in the right places in the body and the brain, too much calcium cause the tensing and magnesium the relaxing.

Another thing that has a major effect on seizures is sleep. Lack of sleep and stress can cause epilepsy. I have a really mild case of it and that's the only time I ever get epilepsy is when I am stressed or haven't been sleeping much or going to bed late.
