POTS is a SYNDROME: "Syndrome" = "we don't get it". In POTS, there is an unexplained alteration in the balance of stress/relaxation response that causes improper coordination of heart rate and blood vessel size and so-on. After cardiology has assured no dangerous abnormalities, it makes sense to try a complementary approach. cranial osteopathy or craniosacral might help. Look for credentialed providers.
