Description Epileptic seizure is a neurological condition in which brief to long episodes of vigorous shaking, convulsions, blackouts, fainting, unresponsiveness, jerks, etc. occur in the patients. Current treatment approaches are anti-seizure medicines, which patients are bound to take throughout life. These medications are mostly not able to reverse or eradicate the condition. Vedic literature recommends Yagya as a therapy for mental conditions similar to mania, seizure, etc. Yagya-Therapy provides pulmonary inhalation of medicinal-smoke of multiple herbs (generated through oblation in fire along with chanting of Vedic hymns), which have the potential for seizure treatment. A case study is being reported wherein Yagya-Therapy was prescribed to an epileptic seizure patient. Before the start of Yagya-Therapy, the patient (Male/65 years) had been suffering from epileptic seizures (~8-10 episodes annually) since ~3 years (pre-observation). Subsequently, the patient has been doing Yagya-Therapy since past ~3.5 years, wherein only 2-3 episodes occurred during the first year, that too during sleep only, and after that no seizures have been experienced. All this time, the patient continued to take the allopathic medication that he was taking earlier. Thus, Yagya-Therapy can be an effective treatment option for epileptic seizure patients.
