Rita was an actress/dancer when POTS crept in and changed her life. She could no longer continue the physicality, and channeled her creative energy into writing. She credits the CHOP exercise protocol with improving her quality of life.
You can find the CHOP exercise protocol at the bottom of this page, and her articles on POTS.
