What does your Autonomic Nervous System have to do with your everyday health? Just about everything. When the Autonomics work correctly your basic bodily functions are “automatic”. You do not think about them until the moment your brain and body no longer work together like they should.
The Autonomics control every organ in the body such as your heart, bladder, stomach, intestines, and kidneys The Autonomics regulate your blood pressure, blood sugar, sleep cycles, immune system, and hormones. The Autonomics also control many smaller functions like your pupil’s ability to respond to bright sunlight without needing sunglasses or being able to see while driving at night, sweating, and temperature regulation.
Autonomic Dysfunction includes heartburn, headaches, high blood pressure, sleep apnea or insomnia, and cerebral blood flow issues that create ADD, chronic hunger or chronic fatigue. Autonomic Dysfunction also leads to abnormal heart rhythms, frequent urination, unexplained anxiety, dizziness or feeling lightheaded, poor memory, poor focus, and “power surges” when you should be at rest.
