Narcolepsy Network recognizes that some people feel more comfortable with non-traditional approaches to treatment of medical problems. Alternative therapies including herbal remedies, prayer, meditation, imagery, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, manipulation and related treatments can have positive effects on some disorders or their symptoms.

Just because a treatment is natural does not mean that it does not have some risk. We want you to take the same care, caution and common sense as someone should take when they are using manufactured medicines. If you are using natural substances with or without modern medicine make sure that your treating physician, pharmacist, herbal practitioner and herbal dispenser all know the things are that you are taking. This can help prevent over-medication and dangerous interactions.
