The Autonomic Nervous System
The Autonomic Nervous System
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is one of the miracles of the human life form. It regulates the heart, body temperature, and breathing. All of the body’s cellular exchanges are also regulated by the ANS. The ANS sends out the right signal, to the right organ, at the right time without conscious knowledge or effort. The primary control center is a section of the brain (called the hypothalamus) which automatically activates the correct vital organ process in accordance with the body’s needs at any moment.
The ANS operates through two branches, the Sympathetic and the Parasympathetic, each has an opposing influence in constant complex chemical cooperation to balance the body ( a term called homeostasis) under any conditions. The ANS is made up of two kinds of neurons that travel from the brain and spinal column to organs throughout the body. An increase Sympathetic activity will provide chemical stimulants. An increase in Parasympathetic action will provide the body with chemical depressants.
When the ANS is in balance we are healthy. Stress is the major reason for an imbalanced ANS, which is why stress is the major cause of illness. The ANS is intimately connected the brain, when we experience fear of the future illusionary or real the ANS will send chemical signs (orders) to every organ by sending adrenaline chemicals throughout the entire body. Stored sugars for energy are released by the liver, additional blood and oxygen is sent to the brain, the heart rate increases and the blood pressure rises. Many people live with this imbalance every day.
Negative or emotional programed thoughts of the past will cause the ANS to activate chemical depressants throughout the body that can create an imbalance if those programed thoughts are not let go. The ANS system cannot determine what is real or what is illusory or if the negative emotion is current or from the past. An ANS imbalance will occur and in time organ failure and/or illness will follow if ANS balance is not restored.
Ki Energy treatments bring balance to the Autonomic Nervous System, which is why one feels very relaxed after a Ki treatment. When the mind is freed from the fear and anxiety of thoughts of the future, and negative stressful l emotional thoughts of the past, the ANS can become balanced, an important state for proactive health maintenance.
Many, who read this dialog over sleep, overeat, over work, and have thoughts mostly in the past or the future. If this sounds familiar, you have an ANS imbalance and unless you find a way to address this issue by learning to bring balance to your ANS you will pay a price. They say stress is a silent killer, don’t put your action off to long, be sure if you are not proactive, reactive cures will be more costly.
I believe all things happen for a reason, so I am not sure why it came to me to offer a free Ki Energy treatment to anyone who calls to make an appointment at 646 329-6727 between now and the end of November, only a monetary donation of your choice will be required. If you are reading this and you now feel that you have an ANS imbalance, perhaps I am writing to you.
