Epilepsy is due to the neurological deficit in the brain causing unprovoked seizures. As mentioned, it is seen in some children due to the trauma during the birth. There is a risk of speech problem in kids as the symptoms depend on the location of the area that causes seizures. So the seizures which starts in the temporal and frontal lobe of the left hemisphere increases the risk of speech problems.

Ayurvedic medicines like Sarasvata aristam and Kalyanaka ghrtam - 1tsp before food twice daily can be given for a month along with the Allopathy medicines and then reviewed. Pancha karma treatments like shirodhara, shiro vasti and nasyam are also effective.

Include complex carbohydrates, berries, pomegranates, celery, ginger and garlic. Reduce excess oil, sugar, canned foods, salt and cold refrigerated foods. Avoid skipping meals and advise him to eat at regular intervals. Enrolling in yoga classes will also be beneficial.
