I receive a lot of messages from fellow chronic fatigue syndrome, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and anxiety sufferers asking ‘what have you found helpful’ and ‘is there anything you can recommend to help me get better.’ So today I thought I would give a quick overview on what I have found helpful. I have tried countless doctors, treatments and therapies over the last few years. But the ones I have found the most helpful are:
- The lightning process (Works retraining on )
- Graded exercise therapy
- Finding the right medications for POTS
- Restorative yoga
- Diet – eating protein at every meal for lasting energy, low sugar, wheat and dairy.
So I say to you, yes outside things have helped in my recovery. However, our mind and body are connected and we should take advantage of that in the best way which is to never give up and never let things get to us. Being sick has helped me realise there’s so much more to life than what’s on the surface and we have to remain strong mentally even if we can’t physically. If we lose hope we lose ourselves. We’ve just got to make the most of what we have.
