Looking after yourself

Information for people with epilepsy on complementary therapies, diet, exercise and support networks.

A balanced diet 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.

How complementary therapies can help to promote your wellbeing and underlying health as well as reduce your stress levels.

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.
