Nemechek Autonomic Medicine Hunger

Chronic Hunger

Chronic hunger commonly is a result of Autonomic Dysfunction. If the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches are not in balance an increased sense of hunger may result from low brain oxygen delivery, excess stomach acid accumulation, abnormal hormonal signaling from bacterial overgrowths, or a poorly functioning hypothalamus. Chronic hunger ruins the daily enjoyment of life, interferes with family or work demands, and affects other areas of overall health both physically and emotionally. Autonomic Dysfunction results in excessive stress hormones and cortisol that increase stubborn belly fat and other abnormal fat deposits.

Did you know that Autonomic Dysfunction might be the cause for abnormal cravings for food?

Do you prefer natural remedies?

Do you prefer all natural or holistic medicine but they have not stopped your chronic hunger?

Do you feel like you are out of options?

Are diets and fads not fixing your chronic hunger?

Are you out of treatment options for chronic hunger but you have not treated your Autonomic Nervous System?

Excessive hunger is often due to Autonomic Nervous System dysfunction. The Autonomic Nervous System is able to be repaired years and even decades after the original injury.

Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Reverse Icon


The reversal of Autonomic Dysfunction along with the reduction of bacterial overgrowths and restoration of hypothalamic damage helps normalize hunger.

Restoring Autonomic Dysfunction improves brain oxygen delivery, forward intestinal motility, and the control of inflammation that allows a normal level of hunger.

Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Maintain Icon


The long-term protocol for maintaining normal Autonomic function is through proper microglia and cytokine cell function, core brain nutrition, and the improved control over inflammation with bioelectric stimulation of the Vagus nerve.

The Nemechek Protocol is a top-down approach to restore the body’s digestive tract and stomach acid to equilibrium, ending hunger, calming food anxiety, and optimizing health.  It applies to all ages and disease types by supporting the ability to control hunger, run the Autonomics effectively, control inflammation, produce stem cells, and strengthen the neurological system and immune system which are the cornerstones to healing and eliminating chronic fatigue.

Sophisticated Autonomic spectral analysis testing reveals silent nervous system damage. The Nemechek Protocol for Autonomic Recovery reverses damage and restores Autonomic function. After Autonomic repair, the Nemechek Protocol maintenance phase involves 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.


The Autonomics control your brain’s ability to control natural hunger.  When the Autonomics malfunction and your core nutrients are deficient, you will experience a persistent or frequent sense of hunger. Reversing Autonomic Dysfunction lowers the abnormal hunger resulting from low brain oxygen delivery, excess stomach acid accumulation, abnormal hormonal signaling from bacterial overgrowths, or a poorly functioning hypothalamus.

How it works

Science has given us a new understanding of chronic hunger; the causes are found in the dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System.  Treating the Autonomics is a new way to restore the brain’s natural ability to maintain cerebral blood oxygen levels and move the digestive tract and stomach acid forward at the right speed which eliminates hunger symptoms.

The Nemechek Protocol is a groundbreaking science-based medical approach to restore proper brain control and Autonomic function over hunger. A shifting of key omega fatty acids aids Autonomic repair, satisfies the brain’s nutritional demands, and encourages stem cell production in our brain’s natural chemical environment.

Nemechek Autonomic Recovery Why Molecule

Why it works

The field of Autonomics is science-based and evidence driven.  The underlying reasons why we feel hungry all the time are due to our brains and bodies no longer working together correctly.  The brain is unable to control hunger due to a variety of reasons such as Autonomic Dysfunction, concussion damage, the side effects of medications, and the lack of key nutrients that keep our brains performing at optimal levels.

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.

  • 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,… 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. I’m now consistently under 100 carbs a day… 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

  • 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...?
  • Dr.N , I have been following your blog for a few months. I took your advice and reduced my carb intake and its amazing ! It’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 that’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 don’t have docs like you. I am so glad I found your blog. Thank you Dr N.
