Autonomic Nervous System Function Factors*


See also: Autonomic Science | Acumeridian Science | AcuGraph Digital Meridian Imaging

I include these as "Obstacles to Cure" and sketch their importance in my "Healing Power of Nature" graphic. You can use this as a “checklist” to note factors stressing your innate self-healing ability.

Inherited/Constitutional Factors:


Genetic constitution


Degree of physical fitness


Psychological and emotional patterning


Homeopathic Constitutional Type more >>


Temporary Destabilizing Factors:




Emotional and physical stress


Lack of sleep [also poor sleep habits, lights on, etc., are stressful]


Intoxication from alcohol (within 24 hours), toxic chemicals, etc.


Physical exercise within the patient's time to rebound (or fully recover)


Chronic ANS Dysregulators:

These chronically depress the functional state shown in the Heart Rate Variability test--usually depressing the Parasympathetic Nervous System tonus, and increasing the Sympathetic Nervous System tonus:


Chronic Miasms/Chthonic Disease of homeopathy theory more >>


Heavy metal toxicity


Toxic chemical overload: Fluoride in water, pesticides, etc.


Allergies or hyper-reactivity to foods, the environment and even one's own self [My note: this would include "auto-immunity" as screened for in Auto-Immune Resonance screening.]


Toxic Interference Fields (usually from scars, toxic teeth or from bone infections including "Cavitations"/jaw osteonecrosis)


Chronic infections (virus, fungi, Lyme, Mycoplasma, Candida, parasites)


Noxious energies (including "geopathic stress" and electromagnetic radiation) This can include light in your room during sleep.


Chronic GI disturbance


Major structural disturbance


Psycho-emotional issues


Immune dys-function


Electrolyte/Neurotransmitter imbalances


Dys-oxygenosis (championed by Capital University's President, Majid Ali, M.D.)


Hormonal dys-function


Chronic Malnutrition: [I added this] Low intake of nutrients, or the opposite, over-intake of food. Blood sugar swings.


 *This is based on the assessment process taught by Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., Ph.D. and practiced by the network of practitioners with which he is associated.  [Overview of approach used at National Integrated Health Associates.]The checklist is taken from a patient handout of Dr. Mark McClure at National Integrated Health Associates: "There are multiple components that determine the functional state of the Autonomic Nervous System as reflected by the Heart Rate Variability. They can be constitutional, temporary destabilizing factors, or chronically acquired." More information on Autonomic Dys-Regulation.  Also be sure to see the material on the Process of Healing.
