Your Madcap Miss (a.k.a. Gina Dennis)

Let me be totally up front here…I AM NOT A DOCTOR, nor am I a nutritionist, I only have a tiny amount of formal training in such things as a Health Coach.  But I am a person with narcolepsy who uses dietary and lifestyle changes to mitigate my narcolepsy symptoms.  I’ve been experimenting with these changes since July 2011 and have successfully maintained a high level of narcolepsy symptom management since that date.  And so has my family with narcolepsy.   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.

      • It’s easy for me to talk about myself but man! It’s rough when I talk about my son. Hug your baby boy and know that by getting out there and gathering information for his health is a strong act and one that will bring you closer to him.

    1. Please about the book writing as soon as you can as I just found out my 12-year-old son has narcolepsy and I want to help him as fast as I can and BE knowledgeable as much as I can so he can have a wonderful future.

      • Charlene, I won’t be writing a book but will be publishing the information shared at the Sleep Talk here on the website within the next 2 months. Please stay tuned and we’ll get you some more knowledge so you can assist your son.

    2. SO… Where’s the diet? I don’t happen to live near the hotel at which you are speaking. I thought at LEAST you talk carbs, sugar, energy foods, time to eat what, maintaining a schedule. Maybe all that is on here SOMEWHERE, but, Lord, at least write a Book for those of us who can’t afford to attend out of state lectures!

      • Oh Keith! I’m working on it, fast as I can. Madcap Narcolepsy is a part time gig as I already have a full time job. So I do this in the between spaces so to speak.

        So… no book in the works BUT, I am putting a post on the website in late September/early October that is basically what I will be presenting at the conferences. AND in late October I will have a deep dive, step by step, online course available as well.

        I hope you can stick with me till then. If you really really need immediate information check out the Diet Doctor website at There is a TON of information there for a newbie. There’s a book called Keto Clarity that is an easy read if you would prefer a book format.

        IF YOU ARE TAKING XYREM, please email me. The diet can mimic xyrem to a certain degree so some precautions need to be in place.
