"Exploring ME/CFS Treatment Options at Stanmore"

Updated: May 6

So you have tried most conventional medicine and have eplored some alternative therapy, you have had some relief, but it doesn't last?

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a long-term illness with a wide range of symptoms. People who have CFS/ME often experience extreme fatigue, muscle pain, and cognitive difficulties that can seriously impact their quality of life.

Neuroscientist and Osteopath,Dr Raymond Perrin DO PhD, has been.investigating the causes of ME/CFS for the past 30 years, and he continues to share his knowledge worldwide. He is a well-known educator amongst his peers and has won multiple awards for his thesis on the involvement of cerebrospinal fluid and lymphatic drainage in ME/CFS.

The Perrin Technique is a manual method that aids the diagnosis and treatment of ME/CFS based on the theory that stress factors which can be physical, emotional, chemical, or immunological (such as allergies or infections) can cause excessive strain on the sympathetic nervous system, leading to ME/CFS.

According to Dr Perrin it is a build up of toxins & inflammatory chemicals in the brain and spinal cord leading to a dysfunction of the sympathetic nervous system, part of the autonomic nervous system of the body, which deals with the automatic function of the body. 

A final trigger usually a viral infection, leads to a breakdown of the sympathetic nervous system's control of the lymphatic drainage leading to a reversal of the flow of toxins toward the brain and the spinal cord. The further backflow of toxins results in further disruption of the central nervous system. 

If this sounds like you, perhaps why not try the Perrin Technique protocol.

The Perrin Technique focuses on the lymphatic drainage of the body, to improve proper regulation of the sympathetic system and stimulate healthy fluid dynamics around the brain and spinal cord

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a super complex condition that can make even simple daily tasks feel like climbing Mount Everest. People who have CFS/ME often experience extreme fatigue, muscle pain, and cognitive difficulties that can seriously impact their quality of life.

CFS/ME may be linked to a previous infection, like Epstein-Barr virus or Lyme disease, triggering an autoimmune response that never really shuts off. This constant state of immune activation can wreak havoc on the body's energy levels and ability to function normally. It's a tough road for those dealing with CFS/ME, as there currently isn't a one-size-fits-all treatment plan. Symptoms of ME/CFS include fatigue, sleep disturbances, gastrointestinal issues, cognitive difficulties, aches and pain in the muscles and joints. Patients can even find themselves in a bedbound or in a wheelchair,

Understanding the root cause of this mysterious illness is key to finding more effective management strategies in the future. Many patients with Covid-19 went on to develop persisting symptoms that resemble those of CFS/ME.

The Perrin Technique is a form of treatment developed by Dr. Raymond Perrin, aimed at identifying and treating the root cause of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). This technique focuses on improving the drainage of toxins from the body through manual manipulation of the lymphatic system. By targeting specific areas such as the neck and spine, we can relieve blockages in the lymphatic system, allowing for better circulation and removal of waste products that may be contributing to CFS symptoms.

Poor posture from sporting technique, sitting hunched at a desk, driving, consistant bending and twisting, applies extra forces to be applied to the throax, resticting cardaic output, preventing good lymph flow and can compress on the diaphragm limiting full inspiration, expiration.

Postural improvement is not just limited to CFS/ME, it is fundamental for everyone and should be implemented from young age.
