Anonymous asked: I've just been diagnosed with narcolepsy I hear diet change helped you? Any tips to start off gradual I'm a reasonable healthy eater have been on weightwatchers for few years but am new to the raw concept and have a partner that will need to eat similar to me for this to work.
Oh I’m sorry to hear that! They key things for me are eating clean and meditation and yoga. I can use both these things to manage my narcolepsy. And for sure sometimes I have bad days. I think plenty of green juices and vegetables, and other living foods will help. The things I find make me feel slower and more tired are grains, and dairy and meat. I also find my moods have a huge impact on my narcolepsy, if I’m sad or angry just having a bad day I start to feel myself becoming tired. So managing your moods with yoga and meditation will help you a lot! Try to do mediation in the morning and before you go to bed, or when ever you can feel yourself getting tired! It sure beats being on medication for life. And the medication isn’t cheap either! Also the dose will only go up as you get older :( So start making changes now that will help you in the long run, best of luck <3

The Benefits of Sprouting
Sprouts are super easy to grow and incredibly nutritious. Buying sprouts from shops can be up to ten times more expensive than growing your own. Sprouts are one of nature’s true living superfoods - they are enzyme-rich, high in amino acid (protein) content, bursting with minerals and trace minerals, and are packed with chlorophyll. Sprouts are also healing and therapeutic, cleansing and alkalizing, and filled with antiaging antioxidants. Because they are so high in minerals and enzymes, they facilitate digestion, detoxification, and weight loss. What’s more, they taste fantastic. There is a wide selection of different types of seeds that one can sprout, so the variety and flavors available are virtually endless.
The Glass Jar Method
There are many different sprouting kit options, ranging from stackable plastic rings to glass jars, sprouting bags, and automatic sprouters. My favorite is the glass jar method. Sprouting with this simple system involves soaking your chosen seeds overnight and covering the jar with a mesh screen and rubber band. In the morning drain the soak water and rinse the seeds twice daily, placing them on a rack to drain during the day. Harvest them within three to seven days. Some of the easiest sprouts to grow are alfalfa, fenugreek, radish, broccoli, mung beans, onion, cabbage, mustard seeds, chickpeas, quinoa, lentils, pea sprouts, and wheat seeds. For most sprouts, continue to sprout them until they have developed a long tail or their first leaves have begun to go green. In the case of chickpeas, quinoa, pea sprouts, mung beans, and lentils, they are ready to eat as soon as their tails begin to unfurl or emerge from the seed.
