The Autonomic Nervous System

The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) quietly controls most of the body’s essential functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, temperature control, and dilation and constriction of the pupils of the eye. When any part of the ANS does not function properly, for any number of reasons, autonomic dysfunction or dysautonomia occurs, and the body will have trouble regulating one or more of its systems.

More commonly we find autonomic imbalance as a result of chronic disease states such as diabetes and other endocrine disorders, autoimmune diseases, poorly controlled hypertension, and Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, inflammatory insults such as concussion and other traumatic brain injuries may lead to autonomic imbalance. Various environmental, pharmaceutical and viral exposures often lead to autonomic imbalance as well.

While there currently is no cure for autonomic imbalance, there are many treatments available to help improve the quality of life and successfully manage the symptoms of the particular ANS malfunction.
