Rachel Aubry is a 21-year-old artist, poet, and overall creative person. She received her narcolepsy diagnosis during her junior year of high school. Symptoms Rachel experiences include daytime sleepiness, vivid dreaming, and mild cataplexy. Due to her narcolepsy, she is currently unable to drive. Rachel attributes a lot of her success in life to targeted amino acids, her loving support system, God, and taking a psychological and spiritual approach to narcolepsy, in addition to a holistic and medical approach.
Currently, Rachel is focusing on expanding her life through meeting people, learning new hobbies, and following her dreams. Her philosophy in life is that we all need to be our most authentic self to create a better world. We all have unique gifts to bring to the world through our most self-expressed being. Rachel believes in past lives, and that part of her experience with narcolepsy has been tied to past life trauma. To be successful with narcolepsy, she recommends a multi-layered approach, plus chewing gum has really helped her.
