Sylveen has a specialist interest in the field of ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) /CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia and is The Perrin Technique™ licensed practitioner for West Yorkshire.
CFS/ME (now known in The USA as Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease) is an example of the newly classified neuro-lymphatic diseases and is characterised by severe, disabling fatigue together with a combination of symptoms made worse by exertion.
Emotional or physical stress, an over-reaction to infections or pollution can all lead to an over-strain of the sympathetic nervous system due to a build-up of toxins in the fluid around the brain and the spinal cord. A backflow of toxins creates further damage to the brain and affecting functions such as sleep, temperature control, moods as well as pain in muscles and joints all over the body. Other symptoms include reduction in concentration, difficulty reading, sinusitis, short-term memory problems, ‘muzziness’ in the head/brain fog, headaches, increased sensitivity to light and noise, nausea, sore throat and dry eyes, but most of all it is the post-exertional malaise and fatigue that affects patients. This is due to the toxins stuck in the brain which makes most suffers feel poisoned.
The Perrin Technique™ is an osteopathic approach that manually stimulates the fluid motion around the brain and spinal cord. Manipulation of the spine further aids drainage of these toxins out of the cerebrospinal fluid. Massage of the soft tissues in the head, neck, back and chest direct all the toxins out of the lymphatic system and into the blood, where they are detoxified in the liver. Eventually, with no poisons affecting the brain, the sympathetic nervous system begins to function correctly and health is restored.
