The first step is to identify Autonomic dysfunction through Autonomic spectral analysis, a non-invasive test that is a biomarker for your brain’s ability to control the body and quantifies the imbalance and tone of both the Sympathetic (“fight or flight”) and Parasympathetic (“rest and digest”) brain commands. 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 Protocol’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 Vagus nerve), the elimination of underlying bacterial infections or unresolved concussion damage, core brain nutrients 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.
