Dysautonomia and POTS Program at TCLM! Hope for Healing

When walking through chronic illness or long lasting symptoms, the journey can begin to feel bleak and hopeless. When all hopes for healing disintegrate and questions are left unanswered, one can begin to define themselves by their disease rather than the beautifully complex human they are, that may be in a current state of imbalance. At TCLM we shift the focus from disease by providing compassionate care, understanding, and tools to guide patients along their healing process. We are determined to get to the root causes of symptoms, rather than simply masking or medicating them. We acknowledge that our members are a human first, and are experiencing more than just physical symptoms, but various emotional and spiritual implications that are either contributing to, or a result of lasting symptoms.

Dysautonomia is a medical condition that affects the autonomic nervous system, which is responsible for regulating vital functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and temperature control. It can be a challenging condition to diagnose and treat, but with the right approach, it is possible to manage its symptoms and improve quality of life.

One specific type of dysautonomia is called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), which is characterized by an abnormal increase in heart rate upon standing up from a seated or lying position. POTS can cause a range of symptoms, including lightheadedness, dizziness, fatigue, brain fog, and heart palpitations. It can be a debilitating condition that significantly affects a person's ability to function in daily life.

At Texas Center for Lifestyle Medicine (TCLM), we offer a comprehensive, integrative approach to managing and healing dysautonomia and POTS. Our team of healthcare professionals includes physicians, nurse practitioners, a mind-body coach, and registered dietitian. We also collaborate with experts in our community who share the same mission and vision as us, and offer lasting solutions for our Dysautonomia members.  We focus on evidence-based lifestyle interventions to prevent and treat chronic diseases through healing the whole person.
