Childhood epilepsy is very common, with treatment it can be controlled. Many patients have to take medicines for the whole life. But the ancient indian medicine does have a cure. The boy has to take all the alopathic medicine, but he may practice ANULOM BILOM for 30 minutes in the morning. There are also some ayrvedic medicines to be taken regularly. If things improve, he may stop all the medicine.

It would be advisable to see a neurologist with experience in child cases for your son.
