At TCLM, we understand how difficult it can be to battle the symptoms of complex, chronic conditions. Often, patients state that they have felt lost in the system, unheard, or passed around to various specialists with no real answers.

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...
