How is your body handling the demands of your life?
We’ve all heard of situations where someone after just receiving a clean bill of health from the doctor, suddenly has a massive heart attack. Adverse cardiac events do not happen without a massive dysregulation of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).
An Analysis will allow the patient and practitioner a fast and easy way to gain insight into a patients health. The functional state of the ANS provides important information that allows your physician to assess adverse conditions and disorders before they have the chance to start. This is performed through a scientifically developed medical software called The ANS Analysis. Developed over a 10 year research period by one of Germany’s most renowned experts, nearly 20,000 studies demonstrate the importance and reproducibility of its results.
Why is the Autonomic Nervous System Important?
The autonomic nervous system or “automatic nervous system” is the body’s main control center. It is in charge of dozens of vital functions, including cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, digestive, and reproductive systems. Without regulation by the ANS none of these systems would function at all.
In many diseases the autonomic nervous system shows regulatory dysfunction such as in: cardiovascular disease, diabetic neuropathy, pain patients, depressed patients, IBS patients, patients with sleep disorders, fertility patients, and patients with vertigo and balance disorders, among others.
Your Fight and Flight & Rest and Digest Nervous System and how it affects your health
The ANS is divided into two portions, the fight or flight nervous system (also called the sympathetic nervous system) and the rest and digest nervous system (also called the parasympathetic nervous system).
The fight or flight nervous system controls body functionality during times of stress and exertion and provides the body with a sense of heightened awareness, a key mechanism for survival. However, when dominant, this system places high energy demands on the body as well as suspending maintenance functions like tissue healing and digestion.
The rest and digest nervous system is the opposite of the fight or flight system, and therefore is required to counteract the high energy and stimulating effects of that system. This system is activated during periods of intense relaxation, deep breathing, and rest. When dominant, energy is restored and the body’s resources are dedicated to critical maintenance functions such as digestion, tissue repair, and a normal immune response.
What Happens During the Early Stages of Disease
In the early stages of many disease patterns, the fight or flight system dominates, even during times of rest. This loss of adaptability has far reaching consequences for every aspect of health. Thousands of scientific studies have proven that dominance of the fight or flight system is associated with adverse outcomes such as reduced life expectancy and increased morbidity and mortality.
What Does the ANS Analysis Do?
In just seven minutes, the ANS Analysis assesses the condition of the fight or flight and rest and digest nervous system, showing you in an easy to understand bar graph whether your body is adapting to stress, and everyday life in a healthy way.
How Often Should You Have Your Autonomic Nervous System Checked?
As a routine checkup, typically twice a year offers patients a glimpse into the balance and functioning of their nervous system. As a way to measure therapy, ANS Analysis may be used several times during a month to determine therapeutic progress.
