The Perrin Technique – CFS / ME Diagnosis & Treatment

Dr Perrin

The Perrin Technique™ is a manual method that aids the diagnosis and treatment of CFS/ME based on the theory that stress factors which can be physical, emotional, chemical or immunological (such as allergies or infections) can cause excessive strain on the sympathetic nervous system, leading to CFS/ME. Further investigation into this theory has shown that this overload is probably caused by toxins building up in the spinal cord and the brain. For a CFS/ME sufferer, these toxins fail to drain properly. In fact, evidence has shown a backflow of the drainage leading to a further build-up of neurotoxins causing a worsening breakdown of the brain’s normal function leading to the diverse symptoms seen in CFS/ME.

CFS ME Diagnosis

By identifying the common signs in all CFS/ME sufferers, The Perrin Technique™ has devised a physical examination that results in an aid to a definitive diagnosis.  There has never been a more effective way of ascertaining whether a CFS/ME diagnosis is appropriate, and once it is diagnosed then treatment can begin with the best chance of success. CFS ME should be considered if the patient’s symptoms are aggravated after exertion. Most health practitioners around the world diagnose CFS/ME by exclusion after many exhaustive tests and if the symptoms do not subside for a few months. However, using The Perrin Technique™ through a thorough consultation including a comprehensive case history from birth and going through all the symptoms plus a physical examination it is now possible to determine an immediate CFS/ME diagnosis even in the very early stages of the illness which is much more beneficial to patients.

CFS ME Treatment

The sympathetic nervous system affects every type of tissue around the body and receives messages from them. Tissues called lymph vessels form a network of channels carrying a transparent fluid called lymph, which eventually enters the bloodstream. The lymphatic system is essentially a waste disposal unit for the body to flush out the body’s larger toxins.  The CFS/ME treatment of the Perrin Technique™ is an osteopathic method which stimulates the movement of fluid around the brain and spine. Improving movement in the spine further helps to drain the toxins from the cerebrospinal fluid. Systematic manual lymphatic drainage techniques direct the toxins into the bloodstream, where they are eventually expelled by the body or carried to be detoxified in the liver. Over time, without the toxins affecting the brain, the sympathetic nervous system returns to its normal function and symptoms improve. Eventually, patients can become totally symptom-free with CFS/ME treatment using the Perrin Technique™.
