Get Results for Successful Autonomic Regulation with Simvita and Paravita

by Heather Schofield, B.Sc., DHMHS | Dec 23, 2013
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) steers the organism in a subtle and unconscious way, where the body is regulated automatically. Autonomic regulation is governed by the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Regulation in the body is dependent on the ability of these two systems running smoothly and remaining in balance. When dysregulation takes place (‘getting stuck’) in either one of these systems (like a thermostat getting stuck in too much heat or too little heat), feelings of ‘unease’ and symptoms or autonomic dysfunction occur.

We take a breath in and we exhale, we blink our eyes and swallow. In this moment, this all happens without even a conscious consideration going into these actions. Our thoughts do not control these processes, the autonomic nervous system does.

Signs of Autonomic Dysfunction

Health and well-being depend directly on the proper functioning of the autonomic nervous system. If there is a prolonged stress, then the autonomic nervous system becomes overactive and may lead to dysfunction or organic pathology of either the parasympathetic or sympathetic nervous system, or both.

Behind most chronic conditions, you will find a dysregulated and unbalanced autonomic nervous system. The trigger of the initial stages of dysregulation is often a physical or psychological stress, which can perpetuate a negative feedback pattern of continued autonomic dysfunction. The key to re-regulation lies in both resolving enduring stressor (emotional or otherwise) and rebalancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

The sympathetic nervous system generally conducts activities of the daytime and wakefulness. It is involved in fight or flight, where energy is reserved and used for defense. Dysfunction appears as nervousness, stress, and anxiety with triggers including excitement; emotions of fear, anger or elation; prolonged or chronic stress; extreme exercise; extreme cold; or when life is endangered. Signs of sympathetic hyperfunction include: inability to relax, over-alertness, inner tension, jitteriness, sleeplessness, restlessness, fast metabolism, hyperthyroidism, cardiac arrhythmia (tachycardia), diarrhea, sweating, trembling, headache, irritable colon, wide pupils, damp and pale skin, and high blood pressure.

The parasympathetic nervous system generally conducts activities of the night (rest) and digestion. It is involved with healing, regeneration, nourishment and elimination. Dysfunction appears if this system gets ‘too relaxed’, with lethargy and fatigue setting in. Signs of parasympathetic hypofunction include: loss of interest, tired face, tendency to sleep due to tiredness and exhaustion, sluggishness, adrenal fatigue, slow metabolism, constriction of the lungs and asthma, hypothyroidism, constipation, cramps of the inner organs (bladder, gallbladder, intestines), migraines or tension headaches, eczema, narrow pupils (miosis), dry skin, gastric ulcers and low blood pressure.

Proven Success to Rebalance the Autonomic Nervous System

Clinically, it has been shown that in order to sustain long-term healing, the autonomic nervous system needs to be regulated. This regulation leads to improved sleep, detoxification, better well-being and what Pischinger describes as ‘better functioning of the milieu’.

It is hard to find natural remedies that can be trusted to consistently address autonomic dysfunction. Simvita® and Paravita®, from the Rubimed line of remedies, have been clinically proven by thousand of practitioners across Europe and North America to quickly and successfully resolve dysfunction of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

Autonomic Hyperfunction: Simvita® is used in cases of autonomic hyperfunction exhibiting inability to relax, inner tension or restlessness and conditions listed under sympathetic dysfunction. Suggested dosage is 5 drops three times daily.

Autonomic Hypofunction: Paravita® is used in cases of autonomic hypofunction exhibiting exhaustion, inability to recuperate or after long periods of stress and conditions listed under parasympathetic dysfunction. Suggested dosage is 5 drops in the morning and at noon.

If a therapist aims to rebalance the autonomic function, allowing the body to return to ‘automatic’ regulation, they hold a powerful tool towards well-being and health for their patients. Whether used independently or in combination with other therapies, Simvita® and Paravita® will get you the best results in addressing autonomic dysfunctions.
