Connective Tissue Disorders
Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) are connective tissue disorders that affect a variety of systems. Symptoms may vary based on the sub-type, but commonly include joint hypermobility, skin fragility, gastrointestinal symptoms, pelvic floor issues and organ prolapse, and cardiac irregularities. There is no known cure for EDS or other connective tissue disorders, and treatment is usually aimed at managing symptoms. There is no current evidence that nutrition or diet can treat EDS; however, nutrition may help manage symptoms or comorbidities, such as gastrointestinal symptoms or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
Individuals with EDS typically schedule individual visits as needed, but may prefer packages depending on the duration or complexity of the condition and if focusing on other wellness or performance goals at the same time. This can be discussed during a free 15 minute phone consult or during the initial visit.
