Health Coach & Nutrition Resources​

The Defeating Epilepsy Foundation® is honored to work with individuals who are battling epilepsy on a global level. We are honored to work with Dr. Kate Couchman, who despite battling epilepsy, has achieved her dream job of helping others take control of their overall well-being and not allow epilepsy to control their every move. Here is an introduction from Dr. Kate:

I’m Dr. Kate and I’m a certified health coach and nutritionist. I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was 12 years old. After trying about 10 different meds as my seizures varied, I made it to 3rd year university and was having up to 100 seizures a day. My neurologist didn’t seem to have the same urgency as I did to find a solution, but I wasn’t prepared to accept mediocracy, nor was I going to give up on myself, so I went in search of answers.

Now I am taking less than 1/4 of the meds I was on and I have been seizure free for years- living my dream life and I am passionate about helping people with epilepsy gain control of their debilitating seizures so they can be free from anxiety and live their life with energy, clarity, and confidence!”

Dr. Kate has been a guest on our series “Meet the Contributors” on our YouTube channel and is passionate about helping those battling epilepsy achieve overall wellness.
