Healing from ME, CFS and Fibromyalgia

Sep 24, 2019

When our primary symptom is fatigue, it's clear that getting deep, effective rest is a crucial part of the recovery process. When the maladaptive stress response adds too much stress to be able to relax deeply, we can intend to rest without actually achieving deep rest. The OHC approach works to calm the nervous system enough that the tired/wired process surrenders to legitimate relaxed restful states. At stage 1 we need to prioritise deep rest, in stage 2 we need more activity to calm and ground the new energy anxiety, and at stage 3 people find it easier to get deep rest when they're able to do more physical activity.
