Episode 19: Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Recovery Story Part 2 – Deep Dive into Brain Training with Julia
This is part 2 of Julia’s Multiple Chemical Sensitvity (MCS) recovery story where we explore her brain training approach for her recovery.
Episode 18: Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Recovery Story Part 1 – Deep Dive into MCS Diet with Julia
Julia shares her Multiple Chemical Sensitivities Recovery story (MCS recovery story) in this wonderful interview.
In part 1 here, we explore how her illness came on in childhood and how she struggled with doctors and the label of having a psychosomatic illness. Then, her MCS suddenly went into remission following a change in environment (makes sense given that MCS is often referred to as environmental illness)
Episode 17: Snippet 7 Steps To End Overwhelm Regarding ME/CFS, Fibro, POTS, MCS Treatments & Recovery Strategies
It’s easy to get overwhelmed with Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, POTS, MCS, and similar invisible illnesses.
People feel overwhelmed trying to do new diets, lifestyle changes, medical treatments, brain training, and just about any other helpful strategy to recovery from Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, POTS, or MCS.
Understanding how this affects your recovery and how to change your approach may be the biggest breakthrough in your recovery.
Rachel tells her story of Fibromyalgia Remission – it’s interesting to hear her say that despite being healthy again and symptom free, she still says “I have fibromyalgia”.
Episode 15: Snippet – What is the most important thing towards healing from me/cfs, fibromyalgia and pots?
Sometimes we are overwhelmed by what is the most important thing to do for recovery from Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), POTS or MCS. So I share my thoughts and experience around this in this short recovery snippet.
In this episode Dr Jacob Teitelbaum shares his experience and insights on sleep restoration in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS and peel back the layers of strategies that people can build up to move forward.
Episode 13: Snippet – Should you change program, coach or practitioner to help you recover from CFS/Fibromyalgia/POTS/MCS?
In this short snippet podcast, we discuss the options and seek to understand the reasons why different approaches fail so that we can decide whether to persist or not.
Episode 12: Fascinating videos capture Shannon’s recovery from 7 years of MECFS Fibromyalgia and POTS
It’s one thing seeing interviews with people that recovered, and another thing seeing them tell their stories in real-time. In this interview, Shannon tells how she recovered from fibromyalgia, ME/CFS and POTS after 7 years of illness.
Her 2½ year journey was bumpy, with her actually worsening before she got better. This interview captures her journey, and when you check out the show notes you will see a collection of her video journals that captured her story which makes for a fascinating watch.
Episode 11: How important is diet for brain health and recovery from chronic illness with Dr Delia McCabe
Dr Delia McCabe is a neuroscientist specialising in stress resilience and the impact of nutrition on brain health and mental well-being. We discuss the importance of specific nutrients for recovery from chronic illness like ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, POTS & MCS and restrictive diets such as vegan or vegetarian diets.
We all think we are different and why we can’t recover. Alexandra shares her recovery story from mould illness and chronic fatigue syndrome using the ANS REWIRE program and how another brain-training program didn’t work for her.
In this episode Claudia and Dan talk about that moment in her recovery where she “chose her world”. We discuss practical and psychological aspects of where we place our focus whilst chronically ill and some of the fascinating neuroscience behind the practice of visualisation.
Kristin shares her CFS recovery story in this wonderful detailed interview and talks about the treatments she tried, the ups and downs, her relapses and the constant expansion of diagnoses and symptoms. We delve into how she changed her approach to recover from ME/CFS, POTS, MCS, Bulimia and PTSD.
Episode 7: Top Scientist shares Chronic Pain Insights & discovery of New Effective Fibromyalgia Treatment
In this episode, world-renowned fibromyalgia researcher Professor Dr. Kati Thieme shares her research and understanding of the root cause of fibromyalgia. She tells of how her theoretical research accidentally led to the discovery of an effective treatment for fibromyalgia called Systolic Extinction Training (SET), which when combined with psychological brain-training strategies, is very effective in resolving chronic pain in fibromyalgia and other conditions.
Episode 6: What we learned from 100s of conversations with people who recovered from MECFS Fibromyalgia & POTS
After speaking with 100s of people that have found a way to cure their Fibromyalgia, POTS, ME/CFS and MCS, there are many learnings to be shared.
Raelan Agle who also shares recovery interviews on her YouTube channel was the ideal person to join me for a conversation about recovery.
After so many years I still get emails about how CFS Unravelled has changed people’s life in their quest for recovery from ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, POTS, MCS and related syndromes. We discuss how the hypothesis was born and how it explains the many “mysteries” of the illness.
Episode 4: Dr Jacob Teitelbaum, world leading MECFS Fibromyalgia POTS physician, shares his research and experience
Dr Jacob Teitelbaum is one of the world’s leading ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and POTS physicians and shares his experience and insights in this episode of the Wisdom from the Other Side Podcast.
Dan answers questions about neuroplasticity and why it matters for recovery from Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, POTS & MCS as well as well as how it and central sensitisation occur.
Dan Neuffer answers the questions he regularly gets about the ANS REWIRE program for Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, POTS & MCS.
Episode 1: How to cope and deal with the injustice of invisible illness including chronic illness like Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, POTS and MCS
What prompted Dan Neuffer to start this new podcast for people experiencing ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, POTS and MCS? What are some of the worst injustices we experience with invisible illness, and what can you do about it?
