Alternative Therapies

Narcolepsy Network recognizes that some people feel more comfortable with non-traditional approaches to the 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. The same care, caution, and common sense should be taken as when a person uses 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.
