Importance of proper
balance with Sympthetic and Parasympathetic Nerves
When our Sympathetic
System keeps on at 24 hours, 7 days a week, we develop typical chronic disease and chronic fatigue because:
means, activation of the fight and flight in the adrenaline, which stimulates the heart to work hard sending blood to the
muscles so we can fight and run, therefore we don’t have normal blood supply and innervations to our gut and we don’t
make enzymes. The food won’t be absorbed, even if we eat a perfect diet.
means, the large intestines will not do their job, their main function is to conserve water, as a digestive sludge is delivered
to the large intestine is normally extracts water. Without normal blood supply and innervations a waxy,
oily coat develops and the wall of the intestine becomes leaky and inflamed. This allows large protein
molecules to enter the blood and cause allergy. The blood tries to excrete them through the sinuses, which
in turn cause sinusitis. Debris feed Candida and parasites. Killing them does little, they will keep returning until the parasympathetic
system is re-activated.
When the sympathetic
system is on, it also turns on all the endocrine glands. The brain makes more serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.
The thyroid produces more hormones in order to speed up metabolism. The Para thyroid produces more hormones in order to speed up metabolism. The Para thyroid produces more hormones to increase calcium to be used
for the nerve impulse conduction in muscular contraction. The pancreas makes more insulin.
The adrenals produce more of the adrenalin and cortisol, so more sugar will be available. The gonads
will produce more sex hormones to keep us stronger.
In the whole, we
run out of nutrients since we cannot absorb them; we run out of raw material to make hormones and we drive ourselves to exhaustion.
The lack of adrenaline (the main hormone of the sympathetic system) makes it hard to deal with stress, lack of cortisol
and insulin makes us hypoglycemic, the whole metabolism is slowed down and we start gaining weight, our brain cannot function
clearly, and the lack of sex hormones make us disinterested in sex.
The immune system
becomes weak and we are more susceptible to the infectious diseases. This all leads to anxiety, anger,
In such situations
there is only possible correction by turning off the sympathetic system and turning back on the parasympathetic system. It
is hoped through different holistic therapies that the anterior hypothalamus is activated and stimulates the parasympathetic
system thus causing a gradual shift of activity from the sympathetic system to the parasympathetic and eventually restoring
the balance between the two. Detoxification and Scenar Therapy help
towards this goal.
