7. Exercise


Regular physical exercise improves fitness, energy and mood, which in turn helps reduce seizures and the impact of epilepsy on one’s life. Moreover, exercise releases feel-good hormones into the brain and increases oxygen flow to the brain.

  • Do warm up and stretching exercises daily to feel more relaxed.
  • Walking is one of the easiest and safest exercises that people with epilepsy should do. Walk for 45 minutes, at least 4 times a week.
  • Swimming and other water sports can be great exercise.
  • Gardening and other relaxing activities like tai chi are also great exercises.

Note: Drink water before and after exercise to prevent dehydration. In addition, stop and rest if you are feeling tired.


8. Yoga


Yoga is an age-old practice that alleviates stress, induces relaxation and provides multiple health benefits for people with epilepsy. The combination of controlled deep breathing, physical postures and meditation helps control seizures and reduce other epilepsy symptoms. The top yoga poses for epilepsy are:

  • Balasana (Child’s Pose)
  • Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breathing)
  • Kapotasana (Pigeon Pose)
  • Sirsasana (Headstand)
  • Camatkarasana (Wild Thing)

As it is very important to do yoga poses in the correct manner to reap the benefits, learn them from an expert only.

I had an epileptic fit for the first time 5 years ago in the middle of supermarket on my birthday of all days, wasn’t fun for my kids to see it, it still haunts, I’ve tried many anticonvulsants and had never been able to stop the seizures. Surgery was not an option. I was still an epileptic patient, who have completely lose hope. As the problem is always embarrassing and disturbing. While surfing the internet one fateful day, I learned about Doctor on the internet called Lawson.

  5. I have epilepsy and I am trying to get natural treatments. This is great info for me. I would like to know where to get winter melon in Georgia. Please let me know.

  6. There’s absolutely no cure for epilepsy, except for God. I’m just saying. My daughter is 30 with 2 children, ages 7 & 2. My daughter has hearing disability as well. She’s the most horrible person ever when dealing with her seizures. She smokes weed and God only knows what else, daily and swears it keeps the seizures away, and believe me she’s still having them ! It’s hard on all of us to deal with her verbal abuse, negative demeanor, out burst like some severely crazed maniac. She busts holes in the walls, screams and yells to the top of her lungs, looking like the devil himself. I believe she’s also bipolar. She refuses medical and professional help. She’s not supposed to live alone with her babies. So what’s a mother to do in a situation as this ?
