Written by Dr. Diane Mueller: There are many types of dysautonomia pots (dysfunction of the nervous system). POTS is one particular way our nervous system can become dysfunctional. Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is a complex condition characterized by dysfunction of the nervous system, often leading to symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, dizziness upon standing, and an impending feeling of passing out.

While the common onset of Dysautonomia POTS is often associated with post-bacterial or viral infections, recent research suggests that it can also be triggered by factors such as Lyme disease, post-COVID vaccine, and even post-COVID illness. In this blog, we delve into the world of POTS and how our clinic specializes in uncovering the root cause behind this condition, offering hope and effective solutions to those seeking relief.
POTS, is a disorder characterized by an abnormal increase in heart rate upon assuming an upright position. Individuals with dysautonomia POTS commonly experience a range of symptoms, including brain fog, fatigue, dizziness, and a sensation of being inside a tunnel. This condition is often linked to other health issues such as migraines, gut disorders, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and more. At our clinic, we recognize the multifaceted nature of POTS and work tirelessly to unravel the intricate connections between these conditions.
Exploring Conventional Approaches and Our Unique Method: In conventional medicine, the management of POTS typically revolves around the use of medications such as beta blockers, fludrocortisone, and stimulants. While these treatments may provide temporary relief, they often fail to address the underlying cause of POTS, leaving patients seeking long-term solutions. Our clinic takes a different approach, focusing on identifying and addressing the root cause of the nervous system dysfunction that leads to dysautonomia POTS.
Common Tests for Dysautonomia POTS
During the initial assessment, healthcare professionals will carefully review the patient’s symptoms and medical records to identify any potential triggers or underlying conditions. A physical examination may include checking heart rate and blood pressure in various positions, such as lying down, sitting, and standing. Additionally, tilt-table testing can be conducted to measure changes in heart rate and blood pressure while the patient is tilted at different angles. Other diagnostic tests, such as blood tests, autonomic function tests, and heart rhythm monitoring, may also be employed to rule out other conditions and further support the dysautonomia POTS diagnosis. The process of diagnosing POTS requires expertise and a comprehensive approach to ensure accurate identification of this complex syndrome. Many times heart function tests such as an echocardiogram or EKG are done.
The problem with the diagnosis of POTS is that it does not tell you why the symptoms are occurring. To understand more of dysautonomia POTS, lets talk about getting to the root cause.
Getting to the Root Cause: At our clinic, we believe in a comprehensive and personalized approach to POTS treatment. We delve deep into each patient’s medical history, meticulously examining potential triggers, including past bacterial or viral infections, Lyme disease, and even the impact of vaccines such as the HPV vaccine. By understanding the unique factors that contribute to each individual’s condition, we can tailor our treatment plans accordingly, aiming for long-lasting results and improved quality of life.
To really recover from POTS, one needs to do the proper testing to understand the causes. As mentioned, often there can be a chronic unresolved bacterial or viral infection as the cause. Other times it can be as simple as nutrient deficiencies such as sodium deficiency. Many times, mold toxins, or other toxic materials are involved as well. Toxins can cause the nervous system to inflame leading to symptoms as with dysautonomia POTS.
The Power of Holistic Care: Our clinic stands out for its commitment to providing holistic care that encompasses not only the physical aspects but also the emotional and mental well-being of our patients. We understand that POTS can significantly impact one’s daily life and overall happiness. Therefore, our team of experts, including medical professionals, nutritionists, and therapists, work collaboratively to ensure a well-rounded treatment approach that addresses all facets of the condition.
If you or a loved one is suffering from POTS, finding a clinic that goes beyond the conventional treatment options and seeks to uncover the root cause is paramount. Our clinic specializes in identifying the triggers behind nervous system dysfunction, including post-bacterial or viral infections, Lyme disease, and the potential impact of vaccines. We are dedicated to providing personalized, holistic care that targets the underlying causes of POTS, empowering individuals to regain control over their lives.

“Dr. Mueller’s approach to medicine is refreshing! There is only so much you can do with western medicine and in my life I was needing a new approach. By addressing the whole body, nutritional diet factors, environmental factors, blood work, and incorporating ideas I had not previously known, I was able to break through with my conditions. I am not only experiencing less pain in my life, but through the process of healing guided by Dr. Diane Mueller, I am now happy to say I have more consciousness surrounding how I eat, what to eat and when things are appropriate. Living by example Dr. Mueller has a vibrancy that makes you want to learn and know more about your body and overall health. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for new answers, a new approach to health, or in need of freedom from pain and limitations.”
