    • Avoid fasting for a long period of time, too pungent and astringent food articles. Avoid too much spicy food.
      Very restricted oily food intake.
      And disease-based diet restrictions as per doctor’s advice.

  1. Dr. Hebbar – Since this medication is providing nervous system support, will it help me for my epilepsy? I don’t like the way the medications that I am taking make me feel and they still don’t give me relief from my epilepsy.
