My Narcaplexy Treatments: Chiropractic Care

Since narcolepsy is a lifelong 'illness' with only a few medications that help narcaplectics fight off their symptoms, we are always finding other ways other than pill-popping to make us feel better. One thing I found fascinating when I attended the Narcolepsy Network 2011 Conference this October was the huge interest everyone took in each other's treatment. The first questions out of anyone's mouth after "Do you have narcolepsy? Cataplexy??" was "What kind of medication do you take?"

The main form of healthcare that I use that helps me is regular visits to my chiropractor, Dr. Nickalis Dumas. Without Dr. Nick, I have no idea where I would be today. 

Dr. Nick was featured in Toledo City Paper's 2009 and 2010 lists of the city's best doctors, and as a runner-up in 2011.
I owe so much to him and his staff for taking care of me and treating me like I'm family (and for my family for convincing me to go for that first visit despite my doubts!). Check out his practice, Rapid Relief Chiropractic Center in Toledo, OH:

Happy Holidays!

I'm a little late here, but Happy Holidays to everyone who celebrates something this month! Truly that qualifies pretty much everybody, even atheists (since pretty everyone rings in the New Year one way or another), but to any who don't, I hope you still enjoy your break from work and school :) I myself celebrated both Christmas and Chanukah with my family, and I had a very wonderful holiday(s)!
