Looking after yourself
Information for people with epilepsy on complementary therapies, diet, exercise and support networks.
How complementary therapies can help to promote your wellbeing and underlying health as well as reduce your stress levels.
A balanced diet from different food groups helps the body and brain to function, helping us to stay healthy. This may help reduce the risk of seizures for some people with epilepsy.
How exercise can help your overall health and wellbeing, and how this may also help your epilepsy.
Epilepsy and seizures can affect people in different ways. Support can mean finding understanding, ways to cope, or to feel more in control about living with epilepsy. Here are various ways that you can find support if you need it.
Having epilepsy can have a huge impact on a person's wellbeing including their mood, sleep and relationships.
Epilepsy affects everyone differently. Some people with epilepsy may find that problems with their mood can affect their epilepsy and how it is managed. How you feel may be different and your view of epilepsy may also change over time.
