Kendra has remained active as a community leader, patient expert and advocate in the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, hypermobility disorders and related conditions communities for over 12 years. It was through Kendra’s life, and professional experiences, that she founded EDS Wellness, including Wellapalooza Integrative Wellness Conferences (& retreats!), and recently developed & implemented the ‘Mind-Body Strategies for Hypermobility with Chronic Pain’ program — 1st launched in November 2016 at The Mindfulness Center in Bethesda, MD.
"I have to thank Kendra Neilsen Myles for being a phenomenal educator, advocate for EDS, POTS, and Dysautonomia awareness. Without your exceptional knowledge, advocacy, and selfless care for others suffering from invisible illnesses, I would never have ever taken the steps needed to get properly diagnosed. You are a hero, Kendra! I can never thank you enough for helping to save my life. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!"
Lizzym, Client & Caregiver
"My daughter has been suffering from POTS and hEDS for 10 years. Although we contacted and visited many doctors and tried a variety of therapies over the years, no one knew how to help my daughter. It doesn't even come close to say how frustrated I was. Fortunately, I met Kendra at her booth with information on EDS Wellness; this moment was a turning point where we found help and hope! I cannot write enough about how Kendra and EDS Wellness has transformed my life, my daughter's life, and the lives of so many others. EDS Wellness is about treating the whole person. In addition to maintaining a website that encompasses so much pertinent information as well as numerous links for help, Kendra has run several amazing conferences (like Wellapalooza) for both doctors and patients. Since there is such a variety of medical issues that patients need to deal with, these conferences focus on mind and body wellness, integrative medicine, and various approaches to deal with chronic pain and other issues. This is an exceptional organization that I highly recommend to everyone!"
PChopra, Medical Professional & Community Specialist
"This is an amazing organization to help patients with chronic pain. They look at the person as a whole. The organization, under the guidance of Kendra, has a philosophy of not letting the medical condition define the person. The Wellaplooza (now in its third year) is truly wonderful experience for anyone, not just patients. The 3 days were about treating the mind and body all together. The speakers and hands on demonstrations were excellent. EDS Wellness brings a wonderful mix of medical science and holistic approach to treating not just the medical aspects of chronic pain but the body as a whole."
