Turmeric & Epilepsy



I have spoken before on the health benefits of Turmeric for dogs. Today I want to share some information about how turmeric can help those who live with epilepsy. Turmeric contains an ingredient called curcumin. Scientific studies have shown evidence that curcumin has anti-seizure properties & can aid in the treatment of status epilepticus ( multiple seizures back to back).

Curcumin can increases the level of antioxidant enzymes & reduces oxidative damage in the brain; this indirectly might reduces the frequency of seizures. Turmeric oil also possesses anti-convulsant properties.

Curcumin works in combination with anti-epileptic medications. It increases the therapeutic effect of the drugs which may allow a reduction in the dosage required.
Curcumin also can protect the brain from side effects of anti-epileptic drugs which can be rather toxic.

It is also very good at keeping the internal organs such as the kidneys & the liver from becoming too toxic from anti seizure medications. To sum up, turmeric can serve as complementary therapy by virtue of its anti-epileptic & anti-seizure property.


Always consult your vet before making any dietary changes.
