    Practical Overview: Your Parasympathetic State Jodi Cohen, NTP

Your autonomic nervous system (ANS) runs all of the involuntary mechanisms in your body  — heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, respiration, cell activity and even body temperature.

The two branches of your ANS include the sympathetic nervous system, which mobilizes your body and brain into your “fight or flight” response to danger, and the parasympathetic nervous system, which initiates a relaxation response to restore reparative function after the threat has passed. These two branches operate with a push-pull dynamic and activate very different physical and mental states of being.

A balanced nervous system supports healthy brain function, mood and emotional stability and enhances physical health, including supporting healthy digestion, detoxification and immune function, minimizing pain and calming inflammation. Your parasympathetic nervous system activates your ability to relax and heal, routing blood flow to your organs of digestion and detoxification, slowing your heart rate, normalizing your breathing and calming anxiety and depression.

You should optimally be in a parasympathetic state 80 percent of the time, but many people struggle to be in this state at any point during their day.

This event will provide you with all the information you need to:

  • Heal your gut, calm systemic inflammation and optimize GI function
  • Accelerate healing and detoxification
  • Enhance mood and calm anxiety, depression, anger, fear and grief
  • Bolster resilience, so you can move through challenges with ease and grace
  • Improve memory and enhance mental stamina
  • Reduce pain and improve muscle strength
  • Reverse and heal chronic symptoms
  • Discover easy, simple, natural parasympathetic activation techniques
  • Utilize emerging energetic healing modalities

Join over 50 international health experts to understand and address the health effects of stress, and discover how you can turn on your body’s ability to heal, detox effectively, increase energy and protect against emotional toxicity with proven techniques that improve vagal tone, balance your nervous system and help set the stage for optimum health and well-being.
