I sent this article to my PT who is a certified Postural Restoration Therapist trained in Nebraska by the Institute.
"Yes, scoliosis is the result of oxidation / respiration. How people get oxygen into the asymmetrical thorax and cranium forms our structure. Which in turn affects autonomics, hormones, organ regulation, etc...
Thiamine deficiency very interesting and the thought of incorporating thiamine supplementation to aid in the "healing" of the autonomic nervous system is fascinating and may be worth investigating with chronic pain patients.
PRI (especially the Postural Restoration Institute in Nebraska) has been successfully treating patients with dysautonomia. This supplemental /nutritional potential is awesome. FYI in Nebraska they have people flying in from around the world to be evaluated and treated."
Very interesting that they are treating dysautonomia patients at the Postural Restoration Institute. It makes sense, especially for people with various forms of severe postural imbalances.
I think it is good to be skeptical of all "treatments" for anything. In our shoes I find research, research, and more research is best before deciding on anything.Why do they call it "Postural Restoration". I am skeptical you can actually restore these deep structural issues just through PT.
Amazing how our intuition is always pissed over. We know better than many doctors what is going on with us.
I only hope that this current new influx of doctors who have been hurt by long COVID in numbers start to place things together.
I know that sounds cold but I'm past caring about that really!
Thanks for sharing.
Btw, I wonder how far down the cascade of events does dysautonomia occur.
Of course it will be different in everyone but it seems like smthg is rubbing us out faster than typicals
