Official site for Perrin Technqiue which includes a map of the available clinics.
The following are links to videos which I have found useful in particular to understanding more about the various theories involved:
Perrin Lecture (2009)
CrashCourse - Autonomic Nervous System (watch episodes #13, #14 & #15)
The following lists the supplements I have taken throughout the treatment period with links via Amazon. I have also included alternative links where approrpiate. I make no formal recommendation - these are the products that were recommended to me or I researched.
PharmaEPA Restore - replenishing EPA in initial phase of treatment.
PharmaEPA Maintain - on-going EPA supplement.
Super-B Complex - energy support
The above products maybe cheaper via the manufacturers site Igennus using Perrin discount code and loyalty points.
Vitamin D - suggested by GP for general health reasons.
As with the supplements list but these were part of the detox treatment.
Chlorella - a nutrient-dense algae that binds to heavy metals in the body.
Milk Thistle - to support digestion & liver function for the detox process.
Ginger - helps digestion, reduces nausea.
Psyllium Husk - supports good digestive function for the detox. I mixed into a bowl of porridge every day.
Coconut Oil - binds to the chlorella in the body to aid the detox process. I add it to boiling water with some lemon cordial (tastes like Lemsip!).
Probiotic - suggested by GP & Perrin for a wide range of health reasons.
The following are items which I used during the treatment with a description of their use where appropriate:
Massage Oil - recommended by Ian the osteopath as a quality massage oil
Cold Compress Wrap - ideal for being able to do the cold compress between the shoulder blades
Timer+ iPhone App - allows a sequence of timers to structure the daily exercises
‘Pacing’ is about balancing activity and rest to help manage M.E. and work towards recovery. I found this to be absolutely critical in my recovery. The simple technique was to only do half of what you felt confident in doing. A guide to pacing is included at the bottom of the page.
The hypothalamus controls certain metabolic processes and other activities of the Autonomic Nervous System. Functions of the hypothalamus:
The autonomic nervous system regulates certain body processes, such as blood pressure and the rate of breathing. This system works automatically (autonomously), without a person’s conscious effort and has two main divisions: sympathetic & parasympathetic.
