Let's be calm & happy!

There are two parts to your autonomic nervous system - The sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system. These two branches work together to maintain the overall balance and regulation of bodily functions.

The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the body's response to stress or perceived threats. It triggers the "fight-or-flight" response, which prepares the body for action by increasing heart rate, dilating blood vessels, and releasing stress hormones like adrenaline.

Then, there's the parasympathetic nervous system which promotes the body's relaxation and restorative functions. It helps to conserve energy, slow down the heart rate, and enhance digestion and elimination. It is often referred to as the "rest and digest" system.

Many of your body's functions like digestion, detoxification and healing are only active when your body is in a parasympathetic state. This is especially important if your dealing with any dysbiotic- conditions (things like Candida, SIBO, pathogens, bacterial, H. Pylori, etc.).

On the flip side, when you're in a constant state of "fight or flight" it slows down the immune system and can open the door to chronic infections.

Living in a constant state of stress affects your body in many ways. Some of these affects are as follows:

~ Poor sleep

~ Poor digestion

~ Elevated blood pressure

~ Weight gain

~ Elevated blood sugar

~ Low immune system

And more...

The idea is to look for ways to manage stress especially when your pulled in a million directions. Things like tapping, walking, gardening, deep breathing all can help regulate your nervous system.

There's no quick fix but trying to incorporate something to keep you relaxed will help with overall health.

Remember, to heal your body you want to be in your parasympathetic state Think calm & happy!

Save your sympathetic state (stressed & anxiety) for short term stress (not chronic).
