The Autonomic Nervous System and ME

Two recent posts at Health Rising, ‘Biomarker…‘ and ‘System Reset…‘, explore the role of the autonomic nervous system in ME. The research they describe definitely resonates with my own experience. I can get stuck in a state of ANS arousal that nothing seems to shift once it is in place–which is just as described.

One mind-body technique I have found helpful, where others have not been, is the Attention Training developed by the founders of Metacognitive Therapy.

I’d definitely like to try the non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation though!
