POTS, Autoimmunity & Decreasing Inflammation

Updated: May 30, 2022

A growing body of evidence suggests that POTS may be an autoimmune disorder.

Some researchers have even labeled the coronavirus as the “autoimmune virus” as Long Haulers have now developed serious autoimmune diseases.

Inflammation is one of the body’s natural ways of protecting itself. But there can be too much of a good thing.

The rates of autoimmune disorders have doubled in the past three decades and continue to rise. Factors in the rise of autoimmune disease include changing environment, lifestyle, and constant stressors.

In the past three decades, we’ve had more than 80,000 chemicals approved for use in the US. Climate change. Our diet now includes more processed foods, additives, and fast foods. We are also more sedentary and isolated from other people than ever before.

Can anything be done?

The good news is that research has shown that our lifestyle choices can decrease inflammation. Adopting a healthy diet and other healthy lifestyle behaviors dramatically affects our inflammation levels.

What do we need to decrease inflammation?

A lifestyle comprised of:

  • An anti-inflammatory diet

  • Quality sleep

  • Relaxation

  • Stress reduction

  • Movement

  • Relationships

When you read the above, what comes to mind? How would you feel if you had incorporated all of these?

These all sound so basic because they are. In the early days, our lifestyles used to be more like this. We ate proper food, rested appropriately, had close relationships, and had time for relaxation.

We were not constantly wired, but modern society has changed us.

Yet, imagine how good it would feel to go back to a life filled with more joy, energy, ease, and creativity.

In my program, these are exactly the fundamental pillars that we work on.
