When we restore health back to the nervous system, one of the spots that improves is our cardiovascular health.
A common ‘syndrome’ that people experience when their autonomic nervous system is in dysregulation is postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) … which is a technical medical term for:
‘Poor blood pressure regulation when you change your body position abruptly – usually from sitting or lying down to standing – which causes your heart rate to spike and feels like a panic attack.’
My team and I get a lot of questions these days asking if this nervous system-related disorder that is known as ‘POTS’ can be healed with my online programs, and also, via somatic work via a trained practitioner, and the answer is yes, it definitely can be.
I would say that some of the most interesting demonstrations I saw Peter Levine, founder of Somatic Experiencing (SE) do when I was assisting at various master classes, was when he’d work with someone who was living with syndromes such as POTS.
To work with a person at these levels requires a somatic and nervous system-informed approach.
