Health is a continuum. We start off with vibrant health with lots of energy. If we fail to create the optimum environment for our health, we may slowly degenerate to organ dysfunction and low energy that ultimately lead to disease and early death.

Our body is designed to heal itself when given the right nutrients and optimum environment.

The Autonomic Nervous System

The basic life-sustaining functions of the body are controlled by the ANS. Some of the systems controlled by the ANS are:

  • The heartbeat
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Respiration
  • The turning on and off the function of cells, glands, and organs
  • Maintaining acid/alkaline balance of the blood, saliva, and urine
  • Digestion of food
  • Balancing glandular functions
  • Stimulating and inhibiting the body

The ANS is divided into two parts:

  • Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS)
  • Parasympathetic Nervous System (PSNS)

When the body detects danger, the SNS, or the arousal system activates the “fight-or-flight” mechanics. The SNS gives us the energy we need to live our daily life. It regulates how our cells get oxygen and absorb nutrients. Hence, it’s like the daytime nervous system.

On the other hand, the PSNS controls your sleep, relaxation, and digestion. This system is more active at night as our body regenerates our cells and tissues for the next day.

Both SNS and PSNS are vital and they must be in balance at all times. When you are stressed and can’t deal with it in a constructive way, the SNS is often too high and the PSNS is low. The PSNS controls many systems in the body. When it’s low, those systems are depressed and don’t function optimally. The SNS is like the “gas pedal” in your car, while the PSNS is the “brake pedal” in your car.

Total Health Restoration

Our protocol at Wize Nutrition Therapy is to identify the cause of imbalance in the system and correct them, so that your body can heal. Most imbalances are due to stress, food sensitivities, toxins from chemicals and heavy metals, pathogens such as parasites, bacteria, fungus, viruses as well as nutritional deficiencies.

We are holistic in our approach to Health and Wellness and our services work together to achieve total health restoration.
