How ABTS Can Help


What is postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS)?

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a condition that affects circulation (blood flow). It involves the autonomic nervous system (which automatically controls and regulates vital bodily functions) and sympathetic nervous system (which activates the fight or flight response).

  The Autonomic Nervous System

1. POTS sufferers are stuck in fight-or-flight mode (sympathetic overdrive)

All your functions are controlled by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), made up of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Normally, you should be functioning in the parasympathetic unless you are presented with a threatening situation in which you shift to the sympathetic (fight or flight).

Overall, POTS sufferers are in sympathetic overdrive (fight-or-flight), experiencing adrenaline rush. In a way, your brain does not know how to shift to the parasympathetic (the relaxation response) and get out of this vicious cycle.

With the Autonomic Balance Training System you will be able to see your autonomic functions on a computer monitor and use skills and tools to measure, process and understand the stress placed on your system because of a combination of factors. This non-invasive wellness program will help you to make choices that, as part of a healthy lifestyle, may allow you to live better with your disorder.  

2. Some Doctors Do Not Have Enough Awareness

Dr. Kyprianou has dedicated her career to understanding Autonomic Nervous System Disorders and how our lifestyles and choices can impact it, which, in turn, impacts our general wellness. 

Dr. Kyprianou was the recipient of a Fellowship Award during her Doctoral Studies at Wayne State University and was involved in extensive research under the prestigious Nobel Prize Nominee, Dr. Lida Mattman, in Immunopathology and Pathogenic Bacteriology. She is always continuing to learn and grow, attending workshops and seminars frequently. Having been a lecturer and Distinguished Professor Award recipient in Anatomy and Physiology, she has also enjoyed being a speaker at numerous seminars and organizational meetings on Autonomic Nervous System Disorders.

3. Non-Invasive

The ABTS is intended to be a wholistic approach to wellness that teaches users how to make conscious choices that may ultimately become habits. Using the ABTS software and wellness device, you will be able to track functions on the screen and learn how your choices may be helping you manage your own health and wellness naturally.


4. Upsetting stories and experiences

It is important to know that all individuals suffering from POTS or Dysautonomia are different. Being told that you will have to live with this condition the rest of your life can be upsetting and discouraging, which is why our wellness program is designed to help those who are suffering learn that they may still be able to live well with their conditions.

The brain can be rewired with new pathways that may help to balance the ANS by learning to make choices that are tracked with the ABTS software/device, along with lifestyle intervention techniques, to live well with your disorder.

5. Frustration and Feeling Out-of-Control 

If you feel frustrated because you are not in control of your own wellness, this program may help you. Being able to see the impact of your choices day to day can be very empowering, understanding you are not out of control, but actually in control of your own health.
