One of Aletheia’s unique services is a comprehensive assessment, analysis and care package for those with Connective Tissue Spectrum Disorders – including hypermobility, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS – all types) plus the comorbidities of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) and Mast Cell Activation Disorder/Syndrome (MCAD/MCAS).
We do this because we can.
The entire Aletheia Philosophy arose out of our founder, Victoria’s, experiences with these very conditions. It is in learning how to manage these complex, body-wide, systemic health ‘challenges’ that Victoria honed her comprehension of body biochemistry and how health issues ‘work’. This is why our work is focused on nervous system integration and optimisation.
It is through the nervous system that all processes are governed: from internal communication between organs, systems and glands – to internal interpretation of, and responses to, external cues and triggers.
This is true, irrespective of your current health status (hence the Aletheia approach extends to all conditions, including health optimisation).
However, it was through having EDS that the importance of the nervous system was demonstrated to our founder. It is in working with everything that affects nervous system stress that Victoria is now largely symptom-free from POTS and MCAS, and has exceptional ways to manage hypermobility, hyper-reactivity, immune responses and psychology.
To understand how our Connective Tissue Spectrum Disorders Packages work – review the process in our checkboxes on this page.
Victoria rewrites the script on managing EDS, POTS, MCAS and any other connective tissue ‘diagnosis’. Her work is about comprehending not just the connective tissue elements – but everything that goes along with having a condition which affects connective tissue.
Victoria also – unashamedly – works to support patients NOT to identify with whatever their diagnosis might be.
What this truly means is that Victoria and our team will fight for you to get the labels that are required for you to access the health services that might benefit you and the psychological ‘a-hah’ moment which allows you to retell your story with the right understanding. We love a good revisionist history!
And yet – AFTER that – we care about your mindset and how you view yourself, your body and your potential. Limiting yourself to a label, or a set of symptoms, is not what we do.
Because Victoria takes a completely different, nervous system and neurological, view of hypermobility and the entire connective tissue spectrum – freedom from most of the most challenging symptoms of EDS and its comorbidities can be achieved.
Follow Victoria’s social media (linked below) to see what she gets up to: everything from running businesses to kickboxing and strength training. All of this from someone who was told she was going to die on five separate occasions due to gastrointestinal complications and tissue rupture from Classic EDS.
This is why we do what we do.
At Aletheia everything is about un-concealing Ultimate Potential.
We don’t think this should be reserved for the elite or the biohacker.
We know that ‘Ultimate Potential’ is for everyone – and you can define it however you like.
Aletheia exists to support and facilitate the expression of Ultimate Potential in every single one of our patients, all over the world.
And for those with EDS, we hope to start with transforming your idea of what your Ultimate Potential could be.
