Homeopathic Remedies for Epilepsy

Homeopathic Remedies for Seizures Epilepsy is a disorder of the nervous system which is characterized by the tendency of a person to have seizures. Seizure refers to the appearance of symptoms (depending upon the type of seizure) in a person due to abnormal and excessive nerve cell activity in the brain. The result is abnormal behavior and sensations, including loss of consciousness. There are a variety of seizures with different symptoms depending on the part of the brain involved. Homeopathy provides treatment for Seizures in the natural way. The completely natural homeopathic remedies for epilepsy are completely safe and have no side effects. These remedies are of great help in the treatment of Epilepsy.

Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Epilepsy

Epilepsy can be treated with homeopathy which helps treat acute fits as well as eliminates the tendency to have seizures. An inquiry is to be made regarding the type of seizure, aura, triggering factors, finding other causes and individual dominant symptoms in each and every case. The results of the Homeopathy vary in every case depending upon the duration and type of seizure.

1. Cicuta: Where there are Distortions of Body

Cicuta is one of the best medicines for Epilepsy where the attacks of convulsion are marked by violent, distorted body shape. The distortions are most frightful. There is present a marked Opisthotonus — which refers to the condition where the spine bends backward with the head and heels touching the ground. The person is totally unconscious. The face may be blue and the jaw appears locked. Cicuta is also one of the best herbal remedies for epilepsy following head injury. Cicuta can be used for convulsions occurring in children during dentition (development of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth), in women during and after delivery and also for convulsions due to worms. But the condition to be fulfilled for using this remedy in these situations is the presence of violent body distortions. The triggering factors for using Cicuta are touch and noise. An auditory aura may show its presence.

2. Artemisia Vulgaris: For Epilepsy with Petit Mal Seizure

Artemisia Vulgaris is the best natural medicine to tackle cases of Petit Mal Epilepsy. This remedy is of great help for children with Petit Mal seizures. The main symptom is frequent brief episodes of seizures in a short time period. The triggering factor for the seizure is strong emotions, including fear. Any subjective feeling predictive of the onset of a seizure prior to an attack is absent (absence of aura).

3. Stramonium: For Epileptic Convulsions Triggered by Bright Light

Stramonium is the most suitable natural medicine where the convulsion arises after exposure to bright light or shining objects. The consciousness is preserved and jerking of muscles of the upper body part is experienced by the patient.

4. Cuprum Met: When Aura for Seizure Attack is felt in Knees

Cuprum Met is the top medicine when the seizure attack is preceded by an aura in the knee.  The symptoms marked during the attack are clonic spasm that usually begins in finger or toes and soon covers the entire body. Jerking of muscles is also noticed. The triggering factors for the attack include fright and anger. In females, Cuprum Met is used for the treatment of convulsion during pregnancy, after delivery and around the menstrual period.

5. Bufo Rana: For Epileptic Fit during Sleep

Bufo Rana is a natural medicine of great help in providing a cure for Epilepsy seizures where the attacks are present during sleep. The aura is felt in the genital area. It also works well for females who have attacks of seizures during menses.

6. Hyoscyamus: For Deep Sleep following Epileptic Attack

The best natural medicine when deep sleep follows an epileptic fit is Hyoscyamus. The other symptoms include picking at bedclothes and playing with hands and muscular twitching.

Other Important Medicines

1. For epileptic fits during fever (Febrile seizures)

Belladonna and Nux Vomica are natural medicines that are very beneficial in cases of Febrile seizures. Belladonna is the ideal mode of treatment when there is fever with marked heat. The head is extremely hot with jerking of muscles. Nux Vomica is of great help when extreme chilliness is present with seizures.

2. For Epileptic fits as per the Triggering Factor

Chamomilla and Nux Vomica are the natural medicines that are of great help for the treatment of epileptic fits triggered due to anger outbursts. For fits after a fright, Opium, Aconite are ideal remedies. In cases where alcoholic drinks trigger the attack, the most appropriate medicines are Ran Bulb and Nux Vomica.

3. For Epileptic fit arising from Head Injury

For Epilepsy cases that mark their origin to head injury, Hypericum, Nat Sulph and Cicuta are the natural medicines that offer the best mode of treatment.

4. For Epileptic fit arising from Brain Tumours

Medicines that are of help in the treatment of fits due to tumors in the brain are Plumbum, Cicuta and Conium.

5. For Epilepsy during Dentition

Chamomilla, Kali Bromatum and Aethusa have proved their worth in treatment of epileptic fits during dentition (development of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth). Chamomilla is best suited when anger triggers a fit during dentition. Kali Bromatum is the ideal remedy when there is a jerking of muscles. Aethusa is selected when the symptoms are clenched thumbs, fixed pupils and a locked jaw. Eyes are turned downwards.

6. For Epileptic fits due to Suppressed Eruptions

Zincum, Agaricus and Cicuta are natural remedies that work well when the history of suppressing eruptions is ruled out prior to the onset of convulsion history.

7. Medicines as per type of Seizure in Epilepsy

The selection of natural medicines can be ruled out only after taking a complete case history of the patient.

Petit Mal Seizures: The natural medicines for treating Petit Mal Seizures are Artemisia, Belladonna, Zincum, and Hyoscyamus.

Clonic Seizures: Agaricus and Cuprum are the best natural medicines for Clonic Seizures. Agaricus is a great nervous remedy. It is a beneficial remedy when there is a jerking of a single muscle group or the whole body. Cuprum is ideal when the problem starts in toes or fingers and spreads to the entire body.

Tonic Seizures: Cicuta and Plumbum are the best medicines for Tonic Seizures. Cicuta and Plumbum bring about a marked rigidity in the body during tonic convulsions.

Types of Seizures with Symptoms

Focal (Partial Seizure): When the seizures occur due to the involvement of one area of the brain, they are known as Focal Seizures. These are of two types: Simple Partial and Complex Partial. In Simple Partial cases, the person remains conscious, has a sudden emotional experience (feeling of joy, sadness, fear, sexual arousal), has hallucinations of hearing, taste, smell or vision, and there may also be an involuntary jerking of body parts. In Complex Partial Seizure, the person’s consciousness is altered or lost. The symptoms include staring, automatism (repeated rhythmic, purposeless movements) like eye blinking, hand rubbing, walking in a circle, mouth movements, smacking movement of lips, picking at bedclothes. After a few minutes, consciousness is regained and the drowsy feeling may remain.[toc]

Generalized Seizure: When all areas of the brain are involved, then generalized seizures occur. These are of the following types:

Tonic-Clonic (Grand Mal Seizures): The symptoms are a loss of consciousness and stiffness or rigidity of body with falling down. Respiration arrest and blueness of body also occur. This is followed by relaxation resulting in jerking of the body. The jerking is followed by regaining of consciousness but confusion, impaired memory, headache, and sleepiness. Loss of bladder control and tongue biting are common in these types of seizures. Aura precedes the attack. Aura is a subjective feeling experienced by a patient whereby he or she becomes aware that an attack is about to begin.

Tonic seizures: In these seizures, muscle stiffness mainly of back, arms and legs occur.

Clonic seizures: These seizures cause muscle jerking.

Absence (Petit Mal/Minor Seizure): The symptoms are minor like mainly staring or just a slight tilt in the head, and brief alteration of consciousness usually for seconds. There is no fall or muscle contraction. A person may have more than 20 episodes per day. It is common in childhood. The person gets normal without any confusion when the seizure is over.

Causes And Triggering Factors Of Epilepsy Seizures

The main causes of Epilepsy and resultant seizures include Meningitis, head injury or trauma, stroke, brain tumor, high fever (Febrile Seizure), and parasite infection Neuro-cysticercosis. The main triggering factors include light, noise, sleep loss, alcohol intake, and cigarette smoking.

    My wife Asha, aged 70 is having a history of epilepsy since last 35 years. We have been taking allopathy treatment since than. Last manor seizures happened in 2014. We took treatment from a Nuro specialist , he prescribed Valprid CR-500, BDS. We continued for two years and than the doctor reduced to one tablet for one year and than he decided the dose of one tablet of CR500 to devide in to BDS. After continuing for 6 months he asked to stop it after doing EEG. Soon after , with in one month again she suffered a mild seizure. Again we consulted the doctor , he recommended to continue 1/2 tablets BDS life long. During the seizure she gets foam from mouth, she gets toung bite and body trembles. Now my question is, is their any permanent solution in homeopathy or shall we continue the same medicine life long.

    Hello Dr. Sharma,

    My 15-year-old son has been suffering from Atonic/Clusters seizures since he was 6 months old. These seizures are also called “drop attacks” or “drop seizures.” He drops his head suddenly. Seizures occur in groups or episode count sometimes up to ten head drops. Each head drops last 5-7 seconds and it occurs frequently (3-4 times daily).

    We have tried most of the available medications, but uncontrolled.

    I would appreciate if you suggest any homeopathic medicine for my son.

    Thanks.

  8. My grad daughter is suffering from epilepsy.she is on allopathic neuro drugs.can u suggest homeo medicine is it nessecery to stop allopathy drugs if she takes homeo medicine

  9. Hello Dr. Sharma,

    I am 37 years old.

    I get Grand Mal and generalized seizures, which were initially caused by alcohol and clonezapam withdrawal.

    I don’t feel any aura, but the seizure is followed by extreme fatigue, very heavy sleep, headache and loss of memory for several minutes. I cannot get up from the floor and spend a while just sleeping very heavily. I rarely get any injuries as I just collapse where I am standing.

    The allopathic medicines have helped but I can get seizures if I am not very careful and they have several side effects. So, I want to reduce my dependence.

    I take homoeopathic meds for another issue.

    My question is which medicine would be best for me, and whether I can take it with the ones I use currently.

    I will appreciate any help.

    Thank you.

    Hi Dr. Sharma,
    My 52 yr old husband had a 2nd stroke in July 2018 which now cause him to have seizures. Since then he has had several small 1-2 min seizure episodes. This past weekend he had a more severe seizure which lasted about 15-20 minutes…he could not talk or respond to us, his head jerked to the side, his body became very stiff. He ended up in the emergency room but was discharged that evening. he also suffers from lack of sleep and anxiety since his last stroke. His neurologist has tried numerous seizure meds that either leave him too tired or with no energy at all, and some have caused him insomnia an/or anxiety. he also suffers from other co-morbidities ie: heart disease(2 previous heart attacks with stents) and diabetes. I’m hoping you can help him…he does well with herbals and natural products for his sleep issues. I really want to get more info so he does not have any more seizures.

    Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide. Michelle P

  13. Hello Dr. Sharma,

    My relation has epileptic seizures. She has been suffering from Tonic-Clonic (grand mal seizures) from age 9. It stopped and started again at 11 when she started menstruation. She experiences tickling in the anal region which cease after taking worm medications. She also experiences focal (petit mal) seizures occasionally but mainly grand-mal seizures almost every week which is usually announced by a loud noise. This is worse especially before, during or after menses (mostly during sleep and once in a while when asleep).

    Please let me know how you can help in treating this condition with homeopathic remedies as allopatic medicines has failed to help and only made the condition and health worse.

  27. G.Lahiri says:

    Hello doctor, My son is probably suffering from JME. He gets sudden jerks of hand movements and gets them after inadequate sleep. Stress also causes it. He is on homeo medicine for 2 yrs now, not sure of the medicines as the doctor does not mention them but the symptoms are still present. He is 17 yrs 5 months and stays alone for studies. We are very much concerned. A neurologist had prescribed valparin chrono 300 but we have not given it due to fear of the side effects. I have the neurologist’s prescription and my son was taken through a test – EEG which did find some electrical imbalances. If you want, I can scan them and send them to you. Will be ever grateful for your kind advice.
