POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) is a form of dysautonomia. It is characterized by orthostatic intolerance that is associated with the presence of excessive tachycardia, abnormally rapid heart rate upon standing. Because this disorder affect the regulation of the autonomic nervous system patients wtih POTS experience many other symptoms than just orthostatic intolerance. Regulation of blood flow throughout the body is an essential function of the ANS that gets disrupted causing a multitude of life altering symptoms such as: 

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Blurred vision

  • Lightheadedness, dizziness or fainting

  • Heart palpitations

  • Headache

  • Poor concentration

  • Tiredness

  • Gastrointestinal symptoms (for example, nausea, cramps, bloating, constipation, diarrhea)

  • Shortness of breath

  • Head, neck or chest discomfort

  • Weakness

  • Sleep disorders

  • Difficulty exercising

  • Anxiety

  • Coldness or pain in the extremities

Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Some patients can even be bedridden or hospitalized, but you don't have to live this way. There are zero approved medications for the regulation of POTS symptoms, but, new and exciting clinical research is showing the effectiveness of exercise and other brain based therapies in symptom reduction and improvement in quality of life for patients with POTS. The ANS starts in the brain. It is pivotal that we address the underlying issues at the source in order to improve the integrity of the ANS throughout the brain and body. There are treatment options out there that DO NOT include drugs or surgery.
