Our team led by world-leading expert Dr Dani Gordon specialise in treating multi symptom chronic conditions including EDS through personalised holistic treatment programs combining:
Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) are a group of inherited genetic conditions that cause hypermobility as well as many other symptoms. They are often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed for many years.
Although the exact biomarkers and poorly understood, hEDS is thought to involve mitochondrial dysfunction (how our cells make energy) and may also involve endocannabinoid system dysfunction, an overarching neuroregulatory system in the brain and body which would explain the symptoms of fatigue most people with EDS experience.
How Holistic Treatment Helps EDS
While there is no cure for hEDS, a holistic approach is key to reducing pain and fatigue and brainfog that can be extremely debilitating, since hEDS does not simply make you ‘more flexible.’ Digestive issues and bladder problems can also be problematic and many people have been diagnosed with IBS but actually have hEDS causing these symptoms.
A holistic personalized treatment plan includes novel botanical medicines to quickly improve pain, fatigue and brainfog as well as help support more restorative sleep. Nutritional and functional medicine focusing on the gut-brain axis to reduce digestive issues, food intolerances and associated symptoms like POTS can help heal and improve long term quality of life free from debilitating symptoms.
A functional restoration programme with an hEDS physiotherapist that is tailored to your body is also helpful for maintaining strength and reducing hypermobility that can cause more pain and biomechanical issues and novel botanical medicines can reduce pain and fatigue and increase exercise tolerance to allow you to add this to your treatment plan successfully.
