I want to talk to you about insomnia from a different angle than you’ve probably ever heard before.
This is maybe something proprietary to what we do with Nutrition Response Testing because I’ve never seen another modality understand and engage with the principals that I want to share with you guys.
So we have all of these systems in our bodies.
We’ve got a digestive, circulatory, pulmonary, endocrine, muscular, & skeletal.
You’ve got all these systems, but the controlling mechanism of all your bodily functions is your nervous system.
Your nervous system is the brains, the intelligence, the controlling aspect of your body, a living organism.
So, right now, your heart is pumping, your lungs are breathing, blood is circulating throughout your body, and you’re not in control of it.
What is controlling that?
Your autonomic nervous system.
Although your autonomic nervous system is one system, it has two sides to it.
It has your sympathetic nervous system, which in simple terms, is a gas pedal.
And you have what is called your parasympathetic nervous system, which is simple terms is a brake pedal.
If you think of this analogy in regards to a car, as long as gas, goes, and brake, stops, you are in control of that machinery.
However, if gas doesn’t go and, the brake doesn’t stop, you can’t have good operation or function of the vehicle.
The same is true for our bodies.
I find many people dealing with insomnia or a sleep issue to have one of two manifestations or phenomena that we find with Nutrition Response Testing called block regulation or switched regulation.
So block regulation, in simple terms, means either your gas pedal or your brake pedal isn’t engaging.
So if you think about this in regards to insomnia, you want to be in gas pedal function during the day, and you want to be brake pedal function during the night.
What happens if your brake pedal is not working like it’s supposed to?
You don’t sleep.
You’re gas pedal dominant & that could very well be a root cause of insomnia.
Now there’s another component or manifestation called switched regulation, which is a confusion of the nervous system.
So instead of the gas or the brake not working, now they’re working in opposite fashions.
Where the brakes are going, and the gas is stopping.
If this manifestation is happening in the evening hours, that could be why you fall asleep, and wake up, then fall asleep, and wake up, because your “pedals”, your systems, are switched.
I’ve never heard this principle explained, and I’ve never seen it work as well as what we correct and like we do with nutrition response testing. So to find out if your nervous system is optimally performing for you, if your gas and breaks are doing their jobs, come check us out at Synergy Nutrition and Wellness.
