Dysautonomia is at times, very difficult to diagnose. Symptoms may range on a scale of moderate to severe, which has caused a tremendous amount of frustration in our patients with dysautonomia.
Dysautonomia is a condition that affects the autonomic nervous system, which regulates many of our body's processes, including heart rate, digestion, breathing, and temperature control. To put it simply, it is a dysfunctional relationship between the body and the brain. Dysautonomia can take many forms and affect people in different ways. Some common dysautonomia symptoms include fainting or dizziness upon standing up quickly, intermittent pain throughout the body, fatigue and weakness with minimal exertion, digestive issues such as constipation or diarrhea, trouble swallowing, fluctuating heart rates between fast and slow rhythms, difficulty regulating normal body temperature (too hot/cold), sleep issues, excessive sweating or lack thereof, and digestive issues including gastroparesis.
Because there are so many organ systems and symptoms involved, patients often have been referred to many different specialists but have failed to get to the underlying cause(s) of their dis-ease. Fortunately, there are many tools our clinic offers to help patients with dysautonomia heal. We work to address the underlying causes of this condition through a combination of dietary changes, gut health support, IV therapy, supplement regimens tailored to patient's specific needs, and stress management techniques. Our clinic delivers personalized care, as we know each individual is so unique. Because the mind is very connected to the body and nervous system, mind-body tools have been shown to significantly improve our patients' outcomes when healing dysautonomia.
Dysautonomia is such a complex disorder, that having community support with those who understand how it feels to suffer from such symptoms during the healing process has been a huge benefit to our patients. Community support is a key healing component that has been lacking in many of our patients with severe symptoms. Therefore, we provide various group opportunities to learn and apply healing tools.
By working together as a team with our patients and supporting them on their journey towards healing from dysautonomia, we have seen great success in helping them achieve better overall health and wellness. We believe that the body is capable of healing when it has the tools needed to do so. Check out our Dysautonomia Masterclass listed under "courses" to learn more information!
