Autonomic Disorders

Nemechek Autonomic Medicine Navy Blue Side View


Autonomic Dysfunction makes us feel old and sick, unable to enjoy our basic quality of life. Ā Multiple bodily systems stop working and we feel tired, dizzy, get headaches, and are increasingly unable to eat or digest food, use the bathroom normally, get good sleep, or have sex. Ā It gives us neurological problems, gastrointestinal problems, cardiology problems, autoimmune and nervous system problems, temperature regulation issues, and organ failure.Ā  Autonomic Dysfunction is key to chronic pain, chronic fatigue, persistent hunger, insomnia and non-restorative sleep cycles, emotional regulation, blood pressure and blood sugar regulation, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and PTSD.

Is someone you know not getting well despite doctors or pills or surgeries and you do notĀ know what to do?

Autonomic Dysfunction is Neurological:

Frequent headaches (migraines), lightheaded or dizzy, mild cognitive (ADD, brain fog, poor focus or memory), tingling or numbness (feet, legs, hands, face, neck), and deeply involved with neurodegenerative illnesses (Alzheimerā€™s, Parkinsonā€™s, ALS, Tremor).

Autonomic Dysfunction is a Basic Body Regulation Problem:

Blood pressure regulation issues, poor hormone control, poor immune system function, poor temperature and sweat regulation, poor circulation seen in varicose veins (men and women).Ā 

Autonomic Dysfunction is Intestinal Distress:

Heartburn and reflux, bloating or cramping, constipation, diarrhea, frequent urination, urgent bowels after eating, incontinence, food intolerance.

Autonomic Dysfunction is Psychological:

Anxiety, depression, post-partum,Ā post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Autonomic Dysfunction is Poor Sleep:

Insomnia, non-restorative sleep, night time anxiety, night terrors.

Autonomic Dysfunction is Poor Quality of Life:

Chronic pain, chronic fatigue, chronic hunger, ability to digest food and move the digestive tract, temperature regulation problems, erectile dysfunction, sexual dysfunction (men and women).

Are you looking for answers?

Do you have Autonomic symptoms or been diagnosed with an Autonomic disorder but have no treatment plan to restore your health? Have you been searching for answers about your health, searching for a doctor and a plan that works?

Do you prefer natural remedies?

Are you naturally minded, looking for relief from the symptoms of Autonomic Dysfunction (heartburn, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, chronic hunger, poor sleep)? Do you dislike or distrust pharmaceuticals and doctors but natural remedies are not fully healing your body or mind?

Do you feel like you are out of options?

Have you tried traditional medicine or natural remedies but run out of options to improve your health or Autonomic Dysfunction symptoms? Is your health getting worse, or been told there is nothing else that can help you, and you do not know what to do?

Are you still looking for a diagnosis?

Do you have multiple symptoms or medicines, but no real answer to resolve your underlying health problems? Are you confused or frustrated because no one can make sense of your symptoms and the decline in your health?

TheĀ Nemechek Protocol™ medical consultation and treatment services constitue a brain and body recovery program that reverses the underlying cause of Autonomic Dysfunction:

Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Repair Icon


Repairs and stabilizes Autonomic functioning by recreating the healthy environment that is mandatory for the brain to make stem cells and repair itself.
Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Reverse Icon


Reverses Autonomic Dysfunction by treating intestinal bacterial overgrowths or underlying infections, with simultaneous core changes in nutrition.
Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Restore Icon


Restores proper microglia function (white blood cells) and restores the brainā€™s control over inflammation with bioelectric transcutaneous stimulation of the Autonomic VagusĀ nerve.
Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Maintain Icon


Provides long term structure for maintaining renewed health, continued cellular and organ repair, decreased overnutrition, and the ability to recover from new Autonomic injuries.

The Nemechek Protocol™ medical consultation and treatment services are a top-down approach to restore the body to equilibrium, ending symptoms, reversing illnesses, and optimizing health.Ā  It applies to all ages and disease types by supporting the bodiesā€™ ability to control inflammation, produce stem cells, and strengthen the neurological system and immune system which are the cornerstones to healing and maintaining health.

Sophisticated Autonomic testing reveals silent nervous system damage. TheĀ Nemechek Protocol™ medical consultation and treatment services reverse damage and restore Autonomic function. After Autonomic repair, the protocol maintenance phase involve advanced regimens for the cellular repair of neuronal damage, repair of organs, and weight reduction. The Nemechek Protocol is the blueprint for improved health for the rest of your life.


Because your brain controls your body through the Autonomic Nervous System, reversing Autonomic Dysfunction restores the brainā€™s ability to correctly run and repair the body.

How it works

TheĀ Nemechek Protocol™ medical consultation and treatment service is a science-based medical approach to lower inflammation, promote stem cell growth, and recreate the natural chemical environment that our brains need to correctly control our cells, organs, and body. When the Autonomics function correctly our brain can once again handle stress, inflammation, and disease from the cellular level up and throughout the entire body. Because the failure of our body begins as failure in our brain, we must use medicine, science, and nature to restore normal body function and normal aging.

Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Why Molecule

Why it works

The field of Autonomics is science-based and evidence driven.Ā  It seeks the underlying cellular reasons why our brains and bodies no longer work correctly. By applying new scientific discoveries, I am able to merge traditional medicine with scientifically studied processes to heal both manmade and naturally triggered problems. Autonomic treatment works and is effective because once you understand the underlying dysfunction, you can use the science to guide the medicine and the bodiesā€™ natural repair needs. Autonomics involveĀ natural, mechanical, and chemical systems capable of repair at all ages and stages of life.

The first step is to identify Autonomic dysfunction through Autonomic spectral analysis, a non-invasive test that is a biomarker for your brainā€™s ability to control the body and quantifies the imbalance and tone of both the Sympathetic (ā€œfight or flightā€) and Parasympathetic (ā€œrest and digestā€) brain commands.Ā  Imbedded in those signals are the Autonomics that malfunction after injury, trauma, illness, medicines, vaccines, or childbirth. The second step to pinpoint Autonomic Dysfunction is to determine whether an overgrowth of intestinal bacteria called SIBO is creating secondary Autonomic problems such as intestinal distress (gluten or food intolerance), preventing concussion recovery, triggering skin problems (eczema, rosacea), causing periodontal gum disease, recurrent UTI or strep infections, Autism (propionic acid toxicity), or psychiatric symptoms (anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, depression). The third step is to implement The Nemechek Protocolā€™s short and long-term treatment plan for recovery, maintenance, and advanced care. For most adults, the treatment involves short term medications, the lowering of metabolic inflammation, the lowering of and neuroinflammation including bioelectric stimulation (via the VagusĀ nerve), the elimination of underlying bacterial infections or unresolved concussion damage, core brain nutrientsĀ to mimic the historical foods that kept our brains and nervous systems strong, and chemically cleaner food to maintain recovery and resist relapse or recover from new Autonomic injuries.

Get started today!

You can start today by rebalancing your omega fatty acids to mimic the nutrients our ancestors consumed. Begin by takingĀ high doses of omega-3 DHA (fish oil), omega-3 ALA (nuts), and eliminatingĀ omega-6 vegetable oils in your cooking oils and foods. Use California sourced Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) to obtain omega-9 fatty acids that repair brain damage you already have and to protect from hidden omega-6 fatty acids in your foods. Additional treatment involves Vagus Nerve Stimulation, short-term pharmaceuticals to combat bacterial overgrowths or unresolved concussions, medication for unstable heart rhythms or dangerous patterns of Autonomic dysfunction (Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy), and dietary patterns to encourage natural stem cell production, cytokine control, and proper microglia function.

Autonomic Disorders are easier to identify with real words and common symptoms:

Accelerated Aging:

Autonomic Dysfunction may be accelerated in Diabetes up to two decades earlier than people that same age who do not have Diabetes.

Autoimmune Disorders:

Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Dysregulation of normal inflammation control = Autonomic Dysfunction

Blood Pressure Problems:

Difficult to control blood pressure = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction High blood pressure readings without independently confirmed hypertension = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction Passing out or fainting, especially when hot = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction PMS = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction

Brain and Neurological Problems:

ADD, Brain Fog = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction Migraines and headaches = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction Dizzy or lightheaded, often when standing up or sitting up = Orthostatic Hypotension Tingling in hands, feet, face, and neck = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction Numbness in legs, feet, arms, hands = Autonomic Neuropathy Many types of seizures = Autonomic dysfunction with SIBO Constant foot tappers and leg bouncers = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction Inability to quit smoking = Autonomic Dysfunction with nicotine receptors in body Poor concentration, poor memory, dementia that improves when laying down or while exercising = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction

Broken Mommy:

Women who are never the same after pregnancy due to sudden depletions of omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy (headaches, heartburn, weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, hormone trouble, postpartum depression) = ā€œBroken Mommiesā€ Autonomic Dysfunction

Childhood Disorders:

Autism = Autonomic Dysfunction, Developmental Delay, and Propionic Acid Toxicity from SIBO Anxiety = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction often with SIBO ADD = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction often with SIBO Many types of seizures = Autonomic dysfunction with SIBO

Chronic Pain or Fatigue:

Neck tightness, shoulder pain = Sympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Inflammation in brain, joints, tissues = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Chronic fatigue = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction

Concussions, Traumatic Brain Injury:

Many of the most common symptoms from concussions, traumatic brain injury = Autonomic Dysfunction


Varicose Veins = Sympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction


Difficult to control glucose = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Diabetes = Pancreas damage plus Autonomic Dysfunction


Sensitive to sun in daytime, difficulty seeing at night = Autonomic Dysfunction of pupil dilation and control

Heart Problems:

High heart rate when standing up (POTS, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) Racing heart, heart palpitations, Atrial fibrillation (A Fib) = High HRV, Autonomic Dysfunction

Heartburn, Digestive, and Intestinal Problems:

Constipation = Autonomic Dysfunction, brain moves digestive tract too slow Heartburn = Autonomic Dysfunction, brain moves digestive tract too slow Abdominal bloating and cramping = Autonomic Dysfunction and SIBO Frequent urination, canā€™t empty bladder, frequent UTIā€™s = Sympathetic or Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Persistent Nausea = Brain is not emptying stomach correctly, Autonomic Dysfunction Food intolerance, feel better on gluten-free or on Probiotics = Autonomic Dysfunction and SIBO

Hormone Regulation Issues:

Difficult to control hormone levels = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Abnormal hormone regulation = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Menopauseā€™s hot flashes and hormone problems = Autonomic Dysfunction hormone and body temperature control system malfunction

Hunger, Obesity:

Excessive thirst and hunger = Sympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Belly fat = Sympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction causes cortisol production and abnormal fat distribution.


Neurodegeneration (Parkinsonā€™s, Alzheimerā€™s, ALS) = Autonomic Dysfunction with brain inflammation and cellular damage

Psychiatric Anxiety/Depression:

Anxiety = poor cerebral blood oxygen against gravity from Autonomic Dysfunction often with SIBO Chronic Depression is unresolved brain injury due to chronic inflammation = Damaged Parasympathetic Inflammatory Reflex PTSD is unresolved brain injury due to chronic inflammation = Damaged Parasympathetic Inflammatory Reflex

Sexual Dysfunction:

Erectile Dysfunction, inability to ejaculate in men = blood flow and blood return from extremities problems, Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Vaginal dryness, inability to orgasm in women= Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction

Sleep Problems:

Central Sleep Apnea = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Restless Leg Syndrome = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction Insomnia = Sympathetic Withdrawal induced high noradrenaline levels and night time anxiety Frequent nighttime urination = Inadequate urine production and increase liquid ingestion in daytime released at night from Sympathetic Withdrawal Non-restorative sleep = Parasympathetic Autonomic Dysfunction

Temperature Regulation Issues:

Hot flashes, night sweats = Autonomic Dysfunction often with SIBO Cold extremities/poor circulation = Autonomic Dysfunction, Sympathetic Withdrawal

  • Dr.N , I have been following your blog for a few months. I took your advice and reduced my carb intake and its amazing ! Itā€™s exactly like the title of this post. I lost 11 pounds without even stepping inside the gym. I have reached a weight loss plateau now,need to lose another 15-20 pounds to have a healthy BMI,but thatā€™s ok cos just like you say here even before the scales show that I have lost weight,my body is getting sculpted beautifully and people cant stop paying me compliments. They dont believe me when I tell them that the secret is saying no to Carbs. Please accept my gratitude. Where I come from(India)we donā€™t have docs like you. I am so glad I found your blog. Thank you Dr N.
  • Met you a few weeks ago when I came in for a bladder infection. Followed your advice for a couple of weeks after and felt significantly better, did not have the lightheadedness that I was accustomed to, and was actually having no problems waiting to savor most of my carbs at dinner time. My mood was better and had more energy.
  • So glad I saw your website. I'm 47, slender, female, vegetarian, active, healthy other than autoimmune thyroid for 20 years...unfortunately in the last year I developed high blood sugar, orthostatic hypotension and connective tissue disease. Tough year! I had to cut out almost all carbs and my blood sugar levels are back to normal. HOWEVER, now if I sneak the occasional carb, I get terrible hunger and upset stomach (burping, nausea). So, now I know it is dyspepia and I guess I'll start taking Tums if I know I'm going to indulge in a carb treat...?
  • I have had gout for years, and tried just about everything without success.I reduced meat to, minimum once a week, stopped alcohol altogether.I was having LOTS of fruit and vegetables and my gout was worsening. Finally I have read something about Excessive fructose increasing uric acid.I experimented reducing my fruit intake to 1 a day, and bingo within days I saw a dramatic improvement.Cherries are the only exception. I eat a lot of them when in season,with no ill effects.

  • Wow, I just read your description of OH and suggested treatment. I've struggled with unexplained fatigue when sitting still, standing, driving or riding in a car, and when I get hot for 35 years. No matter how in shape, how much rest or how healthy I am, the symptoms persist. My doctors tell me there's nothing wrong with me or it's psychological. I crave salt always. I will try your salt and low carb treatment. This condition has made it almost impossible to work in my office, sit through a long meeting or drive for more than 30 min. It has been miserable and frustrating. It's refreshing to read your descriptions. Perhaps I'm not "crazy" or lazy. Thank you so much for sharing this information.
  • Doctor N,ā€¦ just wanted to let you know that I finally did something about my high carb intake. About 3 months ago I got tired of taking all the diabetes meds and the awful side effects so I began a real effort to improve my diet and eating habits. I was totally addicted to carbs and sugar. Iā€™m now consistently under 100 carbs a dayā€¦ I feel so much better! I have more energy. I no longer take diabetes medication and my A1C levels are normal. My triglycerides have dropped to normal levels (good cholesterol up and bad down) and I have lost 15 pounds. And I eat food that I love. - Thanks
