We recently held a Dysautonomia group visit led by Dr. Cheng Ruan, where members came together to share their experiences and strategies for managing symptoms. The session was enlightening and provided valuable insights into various techniques that can help alleviate the challenges associated with Dysautonomia.
Sharing Experiences and Strategies: During the group visit, Dr. Ruan shared his recent experience with altitude sickness, highlighting its parallels with Dysautonomia. He discussed the techniques he used to manage his symptoms, including hydration with salt water, fascia release, and acupuncture. These methods proved effective not only at high altitudes but also in managing Dysautonomia symptoms regardless of elevation.
Understanding the Role of Fascia: Dr. Ruan emphasized the importance of fascia, or connective tissue, in contributing to Dysautonomia symptoms. Tight fascia can exacerbate pain and discomfort, making fascia release a crucial aspect of symptom management. He...
Today, during the illuminating Brain Train Group Visit Session at the Texas Center for Lifestyle Medicine, Dr. Ruan delved into a captivating topic: the Trigeminocardiac Reflex (TCR). This fascinating neurological phenomenon, also known as TCR, sheds light on the intricate relationship between the trigeminal nerves and our mental well-being. In this article, we'll explore the insights shared during the session and understand the implications of TCR on anxiety and panic.

The trigeminal nerve, responsible for transmitting sensory information from the face and head, has a profound impact on our emotional responses. This connection between traumatic head injuries and PTSD opens a window to understanding how the trigeminal nerve might influence our mental health.

Pain is a complex phenomenon, and for those suffering from chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, finding effective relief can be a challenging journey. In recent years, the scientific community has been increasingly intrigued by the role of fascia and its potential in pain management. This blog post delves into the science behind fascia release and its potential benefits for individuals dealing with fibromyalgia and TMJ pain, drawing insights from medical research.
Fascia is a connective tissue that wraps around muscles, bones, and organs, providing support, stability, and protection. It consists of collagen and elastin fibers that create a complex network throughout the body. In addition to its mechanical functions, fascia plays a crucial role in transmitting forces, regulating blood flow, and facilitating the communication between different body systems.
