Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is so much more than just a curious double-jointed ability…so much more!
Imagine your limbs giving way as you run, jump, and play.
Imagine your developing teeth dislodging from their sockets.
Imagine the connective tissue structure of your bladder, your skin, even the integrity of your cardiovascular and digestive system constantly being compromised....
This is what Cindy Kennedy will take us through today, as she discusses both her professional and personal journey as a naturopath and mother of a child with EDS.
Cindy shares the various diet, lifestyle, nutritional and herbal therapies which she has found clinically successful in improving the quality of life for those facing this confronting connective tissue disorder.
