|Wakeup Diet & Exercise Program||
For the Naysayers
Drugs aren't helping. Recently, two narcoleptics admitted to me that they’d quit the medication because of problems. For one of these people, a narcolepsy prescription had caused heart damage. Yet both people seek “better medication.” (There is none.) I suggested the Wakeup Diet™. Not only could the program help, but it could improve a patient’s general health. The second person claimed that “drugs are easier and involve less thought than changing my routine.” Yet this person admits that the drugs aren’t helping!
No calorie-counting. You'll be happy to hear this: The Wakeup Diet™ program involves no calorie counting and no weight loss. Instead, this is a weight-neutral system. The purpose of the Wakeup Diet™ is daytime alertness and nighttime sleep quality. Although someone could lose weight by adjusting the program, consider my own weight. It's been stable for decades. I wear the same size bathing suit as in high school.
Drugs are a different matter. If you expect Cloud 9 from a drug, then you're dreaming. This isn't a perfect world
and never will be, despite what pharmaceutical ads might promise. Don't let Cloud 9 obscure the reality of your life.
True, every change to one’s routine carries a risk. Yet we’d guess that a balanced and timed diet, plus daily exercise
are safer than stimulants and depressants. Drugs depend on and deplete one’s resources. They simply can’t nourish the
system. Yet food and exercise can and do provide nourishment.

What Your Doctor Didn't Tell You
Think stimulants are safe for narcoleptics?
Stimulants have a powerful impact on the functioning of the brain and mind. They can lead to addiction and abuse.7
...All stimulant drugs can produce lasting abnormalities in the brain. The most extensive animal research has been conducted using amphetamines (Dexedrine, Adderall), which have been shown to cause permanent biochemical imbalances and cell death, even in short-term moderate doses.13
See Footnotes below.
A different study showed that people who reported using the amphetamines benzedrine and dexedrine were nearly 60 percent more likely to develop PD [Parkinson's Disease] than those who did not use these drugs. Benzedrine and Dexedrine are often prescribed to treat attention deficit disorder, narcolepsy, and traumatic brain injuries—and are also drugs of abuse.14
The body will always pay a price for consuming medicines, which usually have toxic effects. The 'side' / effects are not the only toxic effect of medications. Doctors learn in their introductory pharmacology course in medical school that all medications are toxic to varying degrees, whether side effects are experienced or not. Pharmacology professors stress never to forget that. You cannot escape the immutable biological laws of cause and effect through ingesting medicinal substances.15
