What Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Treatment Works?

If you want to know what Ehlers Danlos Syndrome treatment works best then you will love the newest types, symptoms and diagnosis.  

Here is how it works:

What is EDS?

The Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) are a genetic group of connective tissue disorders.  They are caused by abnormalities in the structure, production, and processing of collagen.  The symptoms and pain levels experienced with this condition can vary greatly from person to person, ranging from mild to severe.  The most common symptoms experienced by patients with EDS are joint hypermobility (joints that stretch more than normal), skin hyperextensibility (skin that stretches more than normal and is soft/velvety) and fragile tissue that bruises easily.  

Each different subtype has a set of clinical criteria that can help physicians diagnose EDS, but, most of the time patients are misdiagnosed.  This is because EDS can resemble other connective tissue disorders, and there is so much variance when it comes to symptoms.  Every patient’s experience with EDS is different – there is no general rule for how this condition may present itself.

In our practice, we have noticed that a patient with EDS may also have other chronic pain syndromes or conditions, such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), dysautonomia, gastroperisis or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). 

We call this the chronic pain overlap. 

They are also generally very sensitive and do not tolerate toxins or medications as well as other people do.  This could be because many of these patients have the MTHFR gene mutation – a genetic cell mutation that (in short) makes it difficult for your body to detoxify itself of various toxins. 

When you learn that you have a genetic condition, it is easy to feel discouraged.  Many patients resign themselves to their fate because they believe that they will always carry the genes that they carry and that they are powerless to change that.  This is simultaneously true and false.

You may be stuck with your genetic makeup – but you’re not powerless over how it affects you. 

EDS TYPES

Causes, Symptoms, and Diagnosis

The EDS disorders are currently divided into thirteen subtypes:

These subtypes include:

  • Classic EDS
  • Classical-like EDS
  • Cardiac-valvular
  • Vascular EDS
  • Hypermobile EDS
  • Anthrochalasia EDS
  • Dermatosparaxis EDS
  • Kyphoscoliotic EDS
  • Brittle cornea syndrome
  • Spondylodysplastic EDS

How The Latest Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Treatment Centers Work

We often use the analogy of pandora’s box.  Inside the box are all of the systems that any type of genetic condition has the ability to cause – such as pain, hypermobility, sensitivity, etc.  However, if you can keep the box locked, patients tend to not be symptomatic, even though they have the genetic potential to be.  

We believe that our treatment works by locking the box again.  

“Perfectly normal genes can result in cancer or death.  Vice-versa, in the right environment, mutant genes won’t be expressed.”

-Bruce Lipton

Our treatment is focused on supporting the central nervous system and optimizing the body’s ability to heal from within.   This inside out healing approach results in a healthy body where these genetic variants are kept inside the box, unexpressed.  Locking the box takes time and must be attacked from many different angles. Over the years, we have introduced numerous tools and techniques in order to perfect our program and help our patients achieve healing. Our approach is focused on nervous system rehabilitation consisting of: 

  • Vagus nerve stimulation
  • Neuromuscular re-education with patented technology
  • Magnetic resonance technology
  • Viral and bacterial analysis and treatments
  • Liver detoxification.

These modalities are designed to enhance one another synergistically to restore balance to the central nervous system

When the nervous system is given the tools that it needs to achieve a state of balance (and keep the box locked), symptoms tend to resolve. We have had many EDS patients go from having very aggressive symptoms to being completely asymptomatic.  Your body is amazing and capable of healing!  

We know that there are many moving parts that must work together in order for you to truly heal. 

It is imperative that you receive treatment from doctors and therapists who understand your condition and truly care about you as a person.

We call this our “secret sauce” and it is what sets us apart – we genuinely love each and every one of our patients.  We operate like a big family – probably very different from any other medical experience you have had.

When you arrive here, you are surrounded by people who get it. Our waiting room is a sacred place where encouragement and understanding abounds.

You will be hugged.

You will shed tears.

You will celebrate victories.

You will make life-long friendships with people who are so fiercely fighting the same battles that you are.

You finally see and know that you are not alone.

Know that there is hope for you regardless of how long you have had EDS or what you have tried before. We know that you have not been given many options and that the ones you have tried most likely didn’t work for you.  Many of our patients have exhausted every avenue before finally finding us.

We understand that it can be easy to lose hope when you are living in agony and there seems to be no end in sight.

Please know and believe this, regardless of what anyone tells you:

You can heal.

It is possible to thrive again.

Every single patient who recovers should bring you hope.

Their bodies are no more special or capable than your own. Healing is possible for you, too. Your body was intricately and magnificently designed to recover and repair.

We highly recommend that you watch our documentary, Finding Hope.  A former EDS patient of ours, Emily, is featured and so many find her story very encouraging.  You can click the “Finding Hope” tab here, on our website, to view this short film.
