Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome (MVPS), also known as "dysautonomia," is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system which controls  involuntary functions such as heart beat, pulse rate, blood pressure, breathing, digestion and the urinary system - to name only a few of the processes it regulates.  When unstable, the autonomic nervous system floods the body with stress hormones causing such symptoms as migraine headaches, spacey or dizzy feeling, vertigo, Insomnia, hyperventilation, skipped or irregular heartbeats, raised blood pressure, panic attacks, chest pain, shaking or startled feeling, cold hands and feet, numbness and tingling, bowel and bladder problems and much, much more.  


If you struggle with this health problem, then you may find that this unconventional book is not like anything you have read before on Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome. I know because I’ve read just about everything out there on the subject. Most of the material has been invaluable to me but all together, it was not enough to help me feel better and get control of this syndrome. My choice was to either take a variety of powerful drugs to cover the symptoms and risk adding drug side effects to my already growing list of problems or to look outside the typical MVPS information and treatments for effective answers. I chose the second. 

 As a long-time investigative medical reporter not satisfied with the status quo, I have used my work to reveal problems and find new answers to health issues for my audience. Because this problem of Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome is personal and has had a profound impact on my life, this book is no exception. I have looked long and hard in my research to find answers and a new level of health. In the book, I tell what I have learned and how it has helped me reclaim my life without fear, without cardiac and psychiatric drugs, with less dependence on the medical establishment and with a new level of control over my symptoms.
