Brief Answer:
No cure for epilepsy

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Neurology, working with an experienced Neurologist. I answer on his behalf.

I am sorry to say that there is no cure for epilepsy as it occurs due to electrical disturbance in the brain.

Sometimes certain conditions like tumor, structural defects etc can lead to electrical disturbance. In that case removing the tumor or such defect may reduce the frequency of seizures.

Hope, I answered your query.
