From Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers (a.k.a. my current favorite book, and a Mother's Day gift from Elayna and Adam):

"If you could at all help it, it was extremely advisable, historically, to avoid being epileptic. Treatments for it have included distilled human skull, dried human heart, bolus of human mummy, boy's urine, excrement of mouse, goose, and horse, warm gladiator blood, arsenic, strychnine, cod liver oil, and borax."
