A note from your Madcap Miss:
Let me be totally up front here…I AM NOT A DOCTOR, nor am I a nutritionist, OR have any, ANY formal training in such things. I am just a person with narcolepsy and with family members with narcolepsy. I also happen to use dietary and lifestyle changes to mitigate my narcolepsy symptoms and have been experimenting with these changes since July 2011. I have successfully maintained a high level of narcolepsy symptom management since then, as have my family members. This website contains our personal stories, failures, and experiments. In this website I will share with you the information that I have found most credible and some practical ideas for mitigating narcolepsy symptoms. I beg you to check with your doctor before initiating any of the dietary changes I speak of, especially if you are taking any medications.
