Drug-Free Dysautonomia Recovery
In this blog, we will highlight our natural, drug free approach to Dysautonomia. Learn the basics about dysautonomia, what your healing options are, and how neuroplasticity might be the answer to a full recovery.
Dysautonomia refers to a number of medical conditions that cause injury, impairment, or problems with the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS serves many functions in the body, including involuntary control and regulation of blood flow, heart rate, digestion, breathing rate, and pupil size. Symptoms and presentation can vary widely from person to person. The most common symptoms include heart rate spikes, dizziness/fainting, significant fatigue/weakness, inability to exercise, and brain fog.
The traditional medical approach includes medication (common examples include fludrocortisone, midodrine, and beta blockers), salt tablets, compression socks, increased water intake, and cardiac rehab.
While the above therapies can aid in minimizing symptoms, many times they do not fully resolve the autonomic system injury and symptoms can persist. Our approach is to get to the root cause of the autonomic system injury and non-invasively heal the brain from within. Through breakthroughs in research of neuroplasticity, we implement a natural, drug-free approach to healing these conditions. For more on neuroplasticity, check out our previous blogs. Our dysautonomia treatment program revolves around two paradigms: #1 utilizing technology to pinpoint areas of the brain and nervous system dysfunction to understand exactly where the injury is and #2 creating a personalized treatment plan to stimulate and heal those areas through neuroplasticity. Additionally, we look at other lifestyle factors including sleep, diet, and stress that may help in the healing process.
