Bella Soul

Bella Soul is trying to take a holistic view on health and disease by social networking young adults to share their experiences on what works and does not work for mental and physical well-being. The ultimate purpose for this organization is to help young adults feel in control of their body and situation no matter what circumstances they may find themselves in.

Mortality rates among people with epilepsy are three times the rate of the general population, and sudden death rates are more than twenty times higher.
