In brief: Please clarify

What the other doctors who answered this didn't ask you is what YOU mean by "holistic" medicines.
While you're thinking, let me give you some vital drug wisdom: Drugs aren't like keys that fit perfectly in body locks. Any drug that has no SIDE effects, very likely has no EFFECTS either. Be skeptical. Uncritically swallowing every nonsensical notion about "holistic" this or that is for suckers.

In brief: Not for cure

Epilepsy is a clinical condition of risk for repeated seizures.
Cure is rare but good management is quite probable. Holistic methods may assist with management, but professional coordination of all treatment must be maintained by a highly experienced epilepsy expert.

The above site is a reputable site that tells you what is proven to work and what is not.
Don't pay for any potions your practitioner sells you that haven't been scientifically proven to work.
