homeopathic cure for epilepsy

I am having grandmal epilepsy and contolled with Phenytion/ Epitoin.I would be thankful if somebody can help me to get homeopathic cure

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I appologise for not being able to answer your question but I also suffer from epilepsy. My fits are not as severe during the day but I do have tonic-clonic seizures in my sleep. I took carbamezapine for a number of years and like you became interested in an alternative. I now have monthly homeopathy and accupuncture treatments which have definately improved things but they are still not perfect(every 3 months). What I would like to know is whether it is unrealistic to expect a seizure-free existence and whether the fits that I am having in my sleep are as dangerous as my neurologist suggests.

Homeopathy cures epilepsy-and I know this for a fact.

It is a very individualized medicine and each person is a different "case" even if allopathic diagnosis is the same. However it is not the case for on-line treatment but requires close management AFTER taking the remedy.
You nedd to go to a professional (and possibly experienced) homeopath.

I have witnessed myself seeing Epilepsy patients cured. There can't be a quick fix for the problem. You can start with Stramonium-30 in the evening and Belladonna-30 in the morning. This is the begining point.

Please do not go for the on-line treatment. Which remedy should be used depends not on the disease as diagnosed but YOUR reaction to it and that can be assessed only after the lenghty interview. Otherwise it's just a guessing game...
Astra2012 last decade
Either way it is a guessing game. You round up symptoms and few remedies and try the best suitable one first. And exactly this is going on this website also.

Homeopathy is the art of guessing.
pw3000 last decade
Right (in a way).

But there is something like "educated gueess" which increases your chances of getting it right.
Astra2012 last decade
The fact is if you go to 10 Educated Homeopaths you get 10 different Educated Diagonosed.

The about two medicines I recommended are the most probable medicines and I also mentioned that this is just the begining point to observe the patient.
pw3000 last decade
I know these remedies and I know they might be right (as the educated guess might be wrong)-I was talking only of "probability". YOUR chance.
(homeopathy depends very much on homeopath-it could be that "educated" professionals aren't that good in selecting the remedy and on-line guess is much better --but they would (should) provide close monitoring after admiistering the remedy-which is not that close on-line).

I witnessed the cure of epilepsy with a single dose of Bothrops 10M-which unlike str and bell is not listed in any reps or MM for it-it has been selected after long interview. After you know your patients better YOUR chance increase.

There is one thing though-both ssua74 and kateB might not go to the profesional homeopath after all (from various reasons) and on-line is the ONLY chance for them to use homeopathy.

Our discussion seems to scare them away.

This is from Boericke's repertory-all these remedies cured someone who (among other symptoms) had epilepsy (probably only one witll cure, the rest will have either no or insignificant effect). Besides these remedies there are others, not yet included, like bothrops.

Prof Kent lists Calc Sil as suitable for the cure of epilepsy . But it should be used high 10m or CM .

You have done nothing but restore my faith in homeopathy. Its a huge relieve to know that there are other people out there with epilpsy that have treated it alternatively. I was beginning to feel like I was the only one so thank you all.x

My memory doesn't work smoothly and i failed in my exam. I am so sick of it, what shall i do, u r my last hope of being cured. Thank you.

I have a rabbit that suffers from epilepsy. Do you think it would be best for her to take homeopathy, rather than other medication?
Her fits are not so dramatic as human fits, but she is extremely distressed while having them... and I don't belive in putting her down because of them.
Her fits last around 20-30 seconds, she doesn't stiffen or fall down..
She has what can only be described as a 'panic attack'..
Screeching.. drooling.. loss control of her bladder, very hard, harsh running around in her cage, hitting the side of the walls, her eyes twitch, and her eye muscle pops out(Known as a cherry eye), she calms within a few seconds..
If someone could post any tips or advice, Id be very grateful, Thanks.

Hi, I just joined this site and I really need help. My nephew is 6 years old and he has constant seizures. Sometimes they are staring seizures, twice he's fallen and he barely speaks. The doctors say its not localized, they are all over. I believe the medication is causing a lot of symptoms and they dont work. Can anyone help me with alternative cures for him. My email is floydjj2 at hot mail dot com. Please email me with any advice, thank you!
jjjrfj last decade
Can you please give the following information in respect of your nephew.

1.Whether he prefers warm surroundings i.e. whether he likes to be covered or he prefers cold surroundings and open air.

2.whether he has a mild disposition or an irritable disposition. How is his attitude towards his friends and relatives?

3.What physical problems, if any does he have.

4.At what time he feels better and at what time does he feel worse like in the morning, evening, late night etc.

5.What do you think is the causative factor for starting his problems.

6.How is his thirst for cold drinks, hot drinks and water?

7.How is the bowel movement? Normal, constipated or loose.

8.Whether the child prefers to move around or prefers to keep still.

9. What are his favorite food items and what are his aversions.

10. Please describe the sequence of events from the point he starts getting the seizure attack up to the point at which his attack is over.
kadwa last decade
Thank you for replying!

1.) He prefers cool surroundings

2.) He used to have a very active and mild disposition, now he can be very irritable and mean toward family and friends.

3.) None that are known

4.) He feels better in the morning

5.) I really can't say, they happen all through out the day as far as I know. I have been told by his mother that he refuses to drink water, milk and juice which is a problem in itself

6.) He loves cold drinks, but not water he only drinks fruit punch. I can't get the mother to understand the importance of nutrition.

7.) Normal

8.) He prefers to move around, he loves to play when he can

9.) Chicken nuggets and fries. He doesnt like anything vegetable or fruit related really.

10.) Staring seizures he just stares off in space for a maximum of 30 seconds, sometimes shorter. There is another type of seizure he gets where he pulls his chin to his chest for a maximum of 30 seconds. And twice he has fallen during a seizure but no convulsions. When the seizure is over he goes back to normal, whatever he was doing before he resumes it as if nothing happened.

Please take three doses of Belladonna 200 as follows and report back after 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 20 minutes before or after taking medicine.
kadwa last decade
Thank you so much for your help! Will he be able to stay on his meds while trying this because I fear his mom will not stop the pills unless she sees a change. And if it works after the 3 doses do we continue with it?
jjjrfj last decade
He should continue with his meds as it is not good to withdraw meds suddenly.

You should not continue on your own, please report back.

Single mother of a beautiful daughter was diagnosed with EP 3 months ago at age 4 (she turned 5 9/21/11).She entered K12 home school/public school online this year at age 4 and was advanced to 1st grade material in a week!

I treat her with completely natural supplements and home remedies.She is taking the following once daily:
1/2 cap of Calms Forte
Super EPA-360EPA/240 DHA
Magnesium Citrate 200mg

Besides those we use:
Hylands Migraine Headache Relief-1 dissolving tablet after her complex partials (rapid eye blinking/unresponsive/pale and she get severe headaches after these.

Also Melatonin 5mg (started with 2.5mg) with the bigger ones and before bed at night.She will also ask for them during the day if she's feeling overwhelmed.

She also takes benadryl as needed bc she has severe allergies.

These alt. meds. are working VERY well for her.The weird thing I have noticed with her is her motion sickness brings on seizures and I tried 1/2 a childs dose of dramamine on the 1st visit to her new nuro. and she went nuts!She was super aggressive and violent.She actually bit her car-seat seat belt and was completely un-consolable.I will NEVER give her that again.Has anyone else noticed and problems with otc meds. complicating EP or causing out of character behavior??

I hope the list I've given that's working for her can help others.

Goodnight and Good Luck to All.
God Bless

Hi kkennard,

Many thanks for your fruitful post. Please describe her convulsions frequency and the duration? What other EP symptoms are there?

What homoeopathy remedies are you using on daily basis?

She has been extremely aggressive for the last week bc I had to stop her daily meds due to a car accident had the 25th.I have post-concussion syndrome and memory problems.We restarted meds last night.
Her complex partial sz symptoms are rapid eye blinking,with sudden stop in motion.She gets migraines afterward and will usually cry/scream and become very clingy.I give her the hylands migraine tablet after the bigger ones and she sleeps for about an hour.In a typical week (while medicated) she has 0-2 complex partials and very few absences.Before the meds she was having over 20 absences a day and 5-10 comp/parts a week.She is very motion sick and we noticed car travel and motion including photosensitivity bring on the complex partials within 60 seconds.So I usually give her a whole calms forte tablet before travel that will last longer than 15mins and a migraine tablet 15mins into the trip.I've had to stop many times and lay her on a blanket outside during and after the CP's to stop them and allow her to recover.I also noticed dramamine makes her VERY aggressive and out of control.I tried a half childrens dose of dramamine once and won't ever do it again!She is not an aggressive child at all.She was biting the car seat straps,hitting,kicking and screaming inconsolably for an hour.It was awful!I actually heard from another mother dramamine did the same thing to her EP son.After the first day and a half off of her meds her behavior and sz activity increased dramatically and was an amazing response.So glad I am capable of regaining her daily meds!! Hope this helps.
