I’m so ecstatic to share Sleep Review Journal’s article “Food as Therapy for Narcolepsy Patients” that was published yesterday. This article highlights the journey my family and I have taken to find non-traditional ways of managing our narcolepsy symptoms.
Sleep Review is a journal for sleep specialists so when the author Yoona Ha interviewed me for the article several weeks ago I felt this dream to share how my family and I mitigate our narcolepsy symptoms via diet was finally being recognized on a larger scale. What began as a teeny tiny dream and a blog six years ago has now become a full on, professional platform from which I’m able to help others with narcolepsy.
Since founding Madcap Narcolepsy, LLC last April, I’ve been honored to speak at the 2016 Narcolepsy Network Conference, be the keynote speaker at Ireland’s Suddenly Sleepy Saturday event this past March, and now to have been interviewed for this article in a journal for sleep specialists. Truly, the word “honored” really can’t come close to how I’m feeling. And the year is nowhere near done…there’s so much more in the works so stay tuned as I begin to lay out a path for making the dietary changes I speak of AND some really exciting news that I’ll share soon.
Please join me in spreading the word about using diet to mitigate narcolepsy symptoms by sharing this Sleep Review article with friends and family.
Thank you so much for your support!
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.
