This week, Michal welcomes fellow Wellness Warriors Dr. Diana Driscoll whose unique experience as a patient has led to groundbreaking research, two patents to date, and a dramatic treatment paradigm shift for numerous "invisible illnesses". Now fully recovered, she is ready to share her story and practical experience at POTS Care.
Dr. Diana Driscoll is an invisible illness patient, an author, speaker, patient advocate, researcher, inventor, clinical director, wife, and mother. Dr. Driscoll was disabled with an “invisible illness” including dysautonomia (POTS – Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS). After traveling the country looking for doctors to help, and yet unresponsive to treatment, she set up a corporation (Genetic Disease Investigators) to get answers. She created a blog (Prettyill.com) to reach out to others when her children also became ill. This grew into a forum which is now known worldwide.
After much research and numerous clinical trials, Dr Driscoll and her husband set up TJ Nutrition® to release to others supplements that resulted from their research.
