In this blog post, we will explore epilepsy from an Ayurvedic perspective and discuss how Ayushakti Ayurved can help you find relief from this condition.
National Epilepsy Day serves as a reminder to raise awareness about this condition and the holistic approach to its management in Ayurveda.
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. It affects millions of people worldwide, causing significant physical and emotional distress. While modern medicine offers various treatment options, Ayurveda provides a holistic approach to managing epilepsy.
If you or a loved one are struggling with epilepsy, we encourage you to consider Ayurvedic treatments at Ayushakti Ayurved to find relief and improve your quality of life.
Symptoms of Epilepsy:
The most recognizable symptom of epilepsy is seizures. Seizures can vary in intensity and duration, and they may manifest differently in each individual. Some common symptoms of seizures include:
- Uncontrolled jerking movements of the limbs or the entire body.
- Loss of consciousness or awareness.
- Staring blankly into space.
- Temporary confusion or disorientation.
- Sensations such as tingling, dizziness, or unusual smells or tastes.
- Sudden emotional changes or intense feelings of fear or anxiety.
It is important to note that experiencing a single seizure does not necessarily mean a person has epilepsy. Epilepsy is typically diagnosed when a person has had at least two unprovoked seizures.
Causes of Epilepsy:
The exact cause of epilepsy is often unknown, but several factors can contribute to its development. Some common causes include:
- Certain genetic mutations or inherited traits can increase the risk of epilepsy.
- Structural abnormalities in the brain, such as tumours, strokes, or infections, can lead to epilepsy.
- Traumatic brain injuries resulting from accidents or falls can trigger epilepsy.
- Conditions like autism or neurofibromatosis can be associated with epilepsy.
- Certain infections, such as meningitis or encephalitis, can cause epilepsy.
- Exposure to toxins, infections, or lack of oxygen during pregnancy can increase the risk of epilepsy in the child.
Understanding Epilepsy from an Ayurveda Perspective
According to Ayurveda, epilepsy is known as “Apasmara.” It is believed to result from an imbalance in the three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. When these doshas are disturbed, they affect the functioning of the nervous system, leading to seizures.
Ayurvedic Causes of Epilepsy:
- Vata Imbalance: Excessive Vata dosha in the body can cause nerve impulses to become erratic, leading to seizures.
- Pitta Imbalance: Pitta dosha imbalances can result in the accumulation of heat in the body, affecting the brain’s functioning and triggering seizures.
- Kapha Imbalance: Kapha dosha imbalances can lead to the accumulation of mucus in the body, obstructing the flow of energy and causing seizures.

Ayurveda aims to restore the balance of doshas and improve overall health to manage epilepsy effectively. Here are some common Ayurvedic treatment approaches:
1. Herbal Remedies: Ayurvedic herbs like Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri), Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), and Shankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis) are known for their neuroprotective and anticonvulsant properties. These herbs help calm the nervous system and reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures.
2. Panchakarma Therapy: Panchakarma is a detoxification therapy that aims to eliminate toxins from the body. It involves various procedures like Virechana (purgation) and Nasya (nasal administration of medicated oils). Panchakarma helps balance the doshas and improves overall well-being, reducing the frequency of seizures. Email us for any inquiry regarding Panchakarma therapy at firstname.lastname@example.org

- Avoiding triggers like excessive stress, inadequate sleep, and certain foods can significantly reduce the frequency of seizures.
- Including foods that have a calming effect on the nervous system, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, is also recommended.
4. Yoga and Meditation: Regular practice of yoga asanas and meditation can help calm the mind, reduce stress, and improve overall mental well-being. Specific asanas like Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand) and Shavasana (Corpse Pose) are beneficial in managing epilepsy.
