Epilepsy or the Seizure disorder is one of the oldest recorded afflictions of mankind. "Epilepsy" is a word used to describe many illnesses with one common symptom as seizures that disrupt the normal activity of the central nervous system. There are dozens of disorders, which may cause seizures. In the language of Ayurveda, epilepsy is called "Apasmara" meaning the loss of consciousness. Seizures like physical diseases result when there are imbalances in the various physical and psychological systems (unions) of the body. Yoga is one of the oldest formal practices known whose purpose is to restore this balance.

The following yoga asanas or postures can be used for the purpose to bring about the balance back:

  • Pranayama or Deep Diaphragmatic Breathing:
    • When a person is slipping into the seizure he or she should reflexively catch and hold their breath, as if startled or frightened.
    • This causes changes in metabolism, blood flow, and oxygen levels in the brain.
    • The practice of Pranayama, i.e., controlled deep diaphragmatic breathing helps restore normal respiration, which can reduce the chances of going into a seizure or stop seizures before they become full blown.
  • Asanas or Yogic Postures:
    • The asanas in yoga aid in restoring balance to the body and its metabolic systems.
    • Practicing asanas increase physical stamina and calm the nervous system.
    • Asanas, used as a physical exercise alone, improve circulation, respiration, and concentration while decreasing the chances of having a seizure.
  • Dhyana or Meditation:
    • Stress is a well-recognized trigger of seizure activity.
    • So for this purpose Dhyana or meditation is used as it soothes the mind as also it heals the body.
    • Meditation improves blood flow to the brain and slows the production of stress hormones.
    • Meditation also increases the levels of neurotransmitters, like serotonin, which keep the body's nervous system calm.
    • Practicing relaxation techniques, such as yoga meditation, is well known as a definitive aid in seizure control.
  • Neck Exercise:
    • Exercises sitting upright or standing nod the head forward slowly and hold it a few seconds.
    • Nod to the back and hold it a few seconds. Repeat the forward and backward nodding three times.
    • Nod to the left shoulder and hold it a few seconds. Nod to the right shoulder and hold it a few seconds. Repeat the nodding to each side three times.
    • Now slowly roll the head clockwise three times, keeping the face forward and the shoulders still, and then reverse.
    • When you've completed this, make fists, tense and raise your shoulders up to your ears, make a face, tensing your facial muscles. Hold for a few seconds then release.
  • Chest Expansion:
    • From a standing position placing your legs together interlock the fingers and hands behind the back, straightening the arms, standing erect.
    • Now breathing in deeply, raise the arms up and back away from the body, drawing the shoulder blades together.
    • Go on exhaling slowly; bend forward at the hips, keeping the knees slightly bent and the spine straight.
    • Let the face roll forward, keeping the arms straight.
    • Remain in this position, breathing comfortably, then begin to come up slowly, inhaling.
