Show Notes

Dr. Svetlana Blitshteyn, one of the top POTS physicians and researchers in the world, presents her recently published theory that POTS affects the central nervous system as well as the peripheral (autonomic) nervous system. A neurologist, she has studied the literature and observed trends in POTS patients in her own practice at the Dysautonomia Clinic to develop this theory. We hope that you will check out her paper discussed in this episode: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC7936931/pdf/415_2021_Article_10502.pdf
