Question. I am 10 years post AVM/currently on seizure meds and recently decided to explore my health a little more.
Im really interested in natural herbs and products. I have been vegetarian for 7 years and really enjoy it! Recently, I started trying herbs (not really related to the improvement of AVMs/seizures) but just the overall healthy herbs. I checked with my neurologist about possible drug interactions with anticonvulsants however he seems to be no help.
Lately I have learned evening primrose(an herb that helps with menstrual pain) is not good for individuals with seizures. I became interested and attempted to try sea moss gel (algae product from the ocean containing 92 minerals found in our bodies) however I was consistently feeling dizzy so I stopped. I’m alittle annoyed because this is something Im really interested in however I feel like there’s no assistance in finding out what interacts with seizure meds. Again, my doctor states that he cannot help me and directed me to a seizure specialist who also was no help due to “no updated research” which I completely understand. Google was also no help.
Any information/comments/experiences you have would be helpful. I am aware any comment/post here should not be taken as medical advice. I’m just curious.
Here are some herbs I was looking into:
SeaMoss- 92 minerals, good for boosting energy, removing mucus from the body
Maca root- great source of iron, contains lots of antioxidants
