I'd like to suggest a solution that I'm very hopeful about! We have a dog who is 6 months old and has been having terrible grand mal seizures every time he starts to go to sleep. Its been going on now for three days this time almost every hour as he falls asleep about an hour after each seizure.
My wife and I could not afford $5,000 to get him the treatment he deserves and we were afraid we'd have to put him down very soon as this is hell on him as you can imagine. Like many others he stopped knowing who we were, could not eat, drink walk nor relieve himself properly. He was like a vegitable.
It has been heart rending to watch and as I told my wife I could not even IMAGINE THE PAIN AND FEAR a Parent would have for a child who suffers a similar experience. It is unbelievable to me that the KNOWN NATURAL HERBAL REMEDIES ARE NOT BEING PRESCRIBED AS THEY WORKED FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS and still work today. So forgive me for comparing an animal to your child or loved ones suffering, that was not my intention here.
My wife however, the smarter of us two, had remembered some of her meds stating they also work on dogs so she started researching and found out that in the Emergency rooms they give seizure victims VALIUM to stop the seizures......she knew VALIUM was a derivitive of Valarian root, a natural plant which you can buy at the nursery and grow at home! She ordered it yesterday on Amazon, 530mg capsules, 100 for less than $5!
Amazingly they arrived today and have miraculously stopped his seizures completely so far!!!!
We first gave him one pill and all his twitching and muscle spasms went away but he did not fall asleep (the definitive test we felt before we could say it works) so an hour and a half later we gave him his second and he has now slept, woken from sleep and still, no shakes! IT IS A TRUE NATURAL MIRACLE DRUG THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US! Why take all those poisons pharmaceutical companies make when we have nature?
Here is what we purchased http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Way-Valeri...
ALSO, JUST SO YOU KNOW SEIZURES IN DOGS ARE THE SAME AS IN HUMANS SO THIS SHOULD WORK, I PRAY IT DOES!
PLEASE RESPOND BACK AND LET EVERYONE KNOW IF IT WORKS FOR YOUR LOVED ONE!
Warmest regards to you all,

PS - Addiitonal Information:
I found this website and HIGHLY RECOMMEND KAVA, SKULLCAP AND VALERIAN EXTRACTS As ALL HAVE BEN KNOWN FOR CENTURIES TO STOP SEIZURES!
Here is what my "The Complete Guide to herbal Medicines" book says about both:
blood clots in the brain
to enhance cancer treatments/chemo
to lower cholesterol
I found a website that is the best for all of these and more, including california poppy, kava and passion flower, all of which have calming affects and could help, they certainly could not hurt to try!
The place I found grows almost everything (obviously things such as Kava have to be grown in their native Pacific Islands) on their own farm, are all certified organically grown with ZERO chemicals added or used to grow. The company is called Herb Pharm and here is their website and the section that deals with the plants I mentioned above:
If I can help just one child experiencing seizures anything close to what my animal has experienced, I will be very grateful and happy, I hope some of these may help to bring relief and happiness to some families and children of Seizures.
On a ending note, its unbelievable that almost EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE TOPICS IN THE BOOK I MENTIONED END WITH THE FOLLOWING CAVEAT " Medical Doctors and the Medical Community does NOT PRESCRIBE THIS PLANT OR HERB AS THEY FEEL MORE STUDY NEEDS TO BE PERFORMED BEFORE IT CAN BE SAFELY PRESCRIBED OR KNOWN IF IT REALLY DOES THESE THINGS, I'm paraphrasing obviously, however that's just not true.
The real reason is they MAKE NO MONEY BY ACTUALLY FIXING YOUR CHILD and therefore no one is ever going to take the time and money to prove that FREE HERBS YO COULD GROW IN YOUR GARDEN actually WORK!
MONEY AND GREED IS WHAT IS KEEPING YOUR CHILD SUFFERING, NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS and it disgusts me beyond anything I can say.
PPS - I wanted to give an update on our dogs condition! Great news, we began by giving him 1 capsule of 530mg Valerian every three hours (it calls for 3 caps for an adult before bed). As I said above it stopped all his muscle spasms and twitching almost instantly. About 6 hours later he has a very mild seizure, so mild I did not even know he was having one but just happened to look over and notice it. We then upped his dosage to two capsules every three hours and he has not had a single seizure since, slept through the whole night! and has no sign of muscle spasms or the twitching he was constantly undergoing previously.
This morning and so far today he is learning how to walk and eat and drink again and the recovery is almost miraculous (if you believe in such things, I DO).
I am going to purchase the Skullcap and KAVA as those specifically address seizures and have been used for centuries if not millennia by our ancestors whom were doing open brain surgery thousands of years before the coming of Christ, and the ONLY REASON we no longer use them today is MONEY AND GREED, pure and simple.
