Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

Divya Medha Vati is commonly used for conditions pertaining to the mind or brain. It contains brahmi, sankapuspi, jatamamsi, vaca, jyostismati, saunf, jahar mohar pisti, moti pisti and pravala pisti which helps to improve the function of the brain. It can be taken while your wife is trying to get pregnant along with the Allopathy medicine. But it is better to stop it after getting pregnant and to continue with the prescribed Allopathy medicine with regular checkups.

Divya Fal ghrit can be given to stabilise the pregnancy, improve the immunity and for general health while she is pregnant.

Include red bananas, garlic, pepper, curry leaf, jaggery, papaya, black gram and grapes. Avoid canned foods, oil, sugar, salt and refined flour. It is always better to keep the weight under control. Yogasanas like Bhujangasana, Gomukhasana, Janushirasana, Matsyasana, Dhanurasana and Uthithapadasana are beneficial.

Hello, Clinical management of women with epilepsy during pregnancy is very important task as there are many risk factors involved. To assess neural tube defects, at first semester and rest of the semesters your wife should be under strict supervision of specialist obstetrician. So, my suggestion is to avoid all possible risk factors, it is better to put her under allopath care completely and see that she is responding well with all medications. She needs special counseling too on how to be in her day-to-day activities.

In Ayurveda, it is better to avoid medications without prescription, but there are some safe medications which are helpful in promoting good health and acts as supplements too. They are helpful in preventing seizure attacks in pregnancy. You can ask her to avoid using Divya Medohar Vati and meanwhile you can give her Bramhi Ghrit one teaspoon as a therapeutic dosage which is good for her. The reason for avoiding Divya Medohar Vati](https://www.lovenaturalremedies.com/Divya-Yog-Mandir-Trust-Swami-Ramdev/Ayurvedic-Medicines/Vati-/-Tablets/Divya-Medohar-vati-50gm.html?keyword=medo) is to prevent risk factors as this medicine is having scrapping property and it is not having any significant role during pregnancy until unless it is indicated in special conditions but not in epilepsy condition.
