Q:  What does Parasympathetic Dominance mean?

ag5zfnJlc291cmNlLXFuYXITCxIGQW5zd2VyGICAgIDEzcUIDA Nervous System Question: What does Parasympathetic Dominance mean? Answer: #Parasympathetic Nervous System “Rest, repair, & digest” or “Type B’s” There are 3 basic #PNS Dominant subtypes: Basic, Extreme, & Inefficient PNS Dominant types. The following is a summary of the average PNS Dominant type. 
 The parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) works to nourish, heal and regenerate the body. It is anabolic, which means it is concerned with rebuilding the body and storing nutrients. Its’ nerves stimulate the immune system, digestion, and urinary function. These organs include the liver, pancreas, stomach, intestines, kidneys, and bladder. The parasympathetic nervous system, when activated by rest, relaxation and positive thinking, is essential for the elimination of wastes, emotional wellbeing and healing. When you feel absolutely stuffed and lethargic after a big Thanksgiving dinner, it is your PNS that is most active. 
 
In situations in which we have excessive parasympathetic nervous system dominance, we often find #disorganization , #depression , #apathy , and #lethargy . There may also be a decrease in clarity of thought such as “spaciness” or poor concentration. The #adrenal and #thyroid glands tend to be underactive and sex #hormones such as #estrogen , #progesterone , and #testosterone are abnormally low. There are frequently issues with multiple #allergies and sensitivities #MCS , dry skin, weight gain or a tendency toward #obesity . These are generally the people who go on the same exact “Healthy” diet as their friends or partner yet struggle to lose a few pounds. Meanwhile, everyone one else has lost 10-20 lbs and is back to their regular routine. 
 
Other signs and symptoms include: frequent hunger, dry/irritated eyes, unexplained sneezing or coughing, #asthma , dizziness (particularly with standing), irregular heart beats or “skipped heart beats”, low blood pressure, and #hypoglycemia as well as increased production of all digestive enzymes and bowel activity, leading to more “stomach rumbling”. #PNS Dominants rarely struggle with #constipation and may have periods of loose or frequent stools. They are also more likely to experience the feeling of being “Tired yet wired,” particularly after eating a simple carbohydrate or sugary snack. While #SNS Dominants may also struggle with this tired yet wired sensation, it is usually more prominent in PNS Dominance. Incidentally, those who cannot tolerate higher altitudes or the more rapid drops in barometric pressure (weather changes) are more likely the PNS Dominant or “Inefficient Balanced” types as a stronger SNS is required in adjusting to higher altitudes and changing weather patterns. These are the folks who know the weather is going to change before anyone else and often suffer with allergies or headaches. They are also prone to upper #respiratory infections, which may evolve to #bronchitis or #pneumonia . Despite this, they do not tolerate hot weather as well as the other types and prefer colder climates. They are also prone to flushing and may have pinker or darker ears and a “ruddy” complexion. Nevertheless, when these individuals are well, they can be highly creative and productive and are often slow to anger. They tend to have less interest in “left brain” academics (math or science) and often prefer “right brain” academics (art, music, & lit). According to Dr. Gonzalez, many Nobel Prize winners in art and literature are PNS Dominants (Hemmingway, Faulkner, & Lewis). PNS Dominants typically avoid confrontational professions and enjoy those, which allow their heightened creative abilities to flourish. And, depending upon where they reside within the PNS axis, many are “foodies” who live to eat rather than simply eating to live, as SNS types tend to do. These folks typically enjoy discussing good restaurants or engaging in discussions about great meals and recipes. They typically gravitate toward meat & potatoes with some veggies usually the root (potatoes, squash, yams) or cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, cabbage). In general, PNS Dominants are more sociable than SNS types. Likewise, they may prefer to remain busy yet tend to avoid exercise. Still, #genetic factors also considerably influence many of these traits. 
Finally, PNS Dominants are most likely to develop immune related cancers such as malignant #melanoma , #lymphoma , #sarcoma , and #leukemia . 
 
Food priorities: It is generally helpful to evaluate the foods you crave and how you tolerate each newly introduced food. For instance, after eating meat do you feel better and more clearheaded or are you more anxious, jittery, or depressed? If you’re having a lot of digestive issues, you may want to begin with mostly cooked foods, at least to some degree, in order to reduce the strain on your digestive system. Therefore, it is important to consider whether or not you tolerate raw vs. cooked foods. Those with PNS Dominance favor butter, cream, meat, and potatoes as well as sour flavors. Yet they avoid sweets, although a heavier pastry with butter or cream is acceptable. 
 
 Regrettably, many PNS Dominants have been heavily influenced by medical and nutrition experts and eat well outside their nutritional requirements. They may favor heavier, “meat & potato” meals yet eat leaner meats, whole grain carbs, fruits, and vegetables despite not feeling satisfied. While many desire bacon and egg breakfasts, they opt for the lighter fruit, toast, and yogurt fare of the SNS Dominant, thinking this is a “healthier” choice. And, even while they gag at the thought of oatmeal or cream of wheat, they do their best to find a “healthy” compromise. They frequently have a spurt of energy for 30 minutes or so, only to feel tired and lackluster within the space of an hour. Yet, if allowed to eat a thick slice of ham with potatoes, they’ll have the energy they need to work throughout the entire morning. In fact, many “vegetarian” PNS Dominants feel much more alert and energetic when they start eating animal proteins While they sought out the heavier “allowed” proteins (cheese, eggs, hummus), most never felt satiated. 
 
For the PNS Dominant, eating meat is not “morally inferior”; it is essential for their health and survival Ultimately, each person should consume the most healthful foods for their metabolic make up. Though SNS Dominants require mostly vegetarian, raw foods, for greatest health, those who are PNS Dominant require fattier, red meats. They are hardwired to function well on the wholesome, omega 3 fats & #glutamate found in grass fed meats. Besides, most will develop a multitude of health problems if they adopt the SNS Dominant’s diet. 
 
For those with concerns regarding #sulfur , while foods such as #broccoli & #cauliflower contain a fair amount of sulfur, you would not be adding in such high doses throughout the day that it would cause harm. Generally, the benefits of increasing Phase 1 to Phase 2 #liver #detox with #cruciferous veggies outweighs any other issues (even #phenols ), particularly with smaller yet regular portions. As a PNS Dominant type, your diet should be about 60-70% protein with 20-30% fruits/veggies/whole grain for best nutritional benefits. Please focus on eating the foods & drinking whatever juices you tolerate for now rather than counting up daily grams of protein or carbs. Most importantly, the meats should be grass fed, generally fattier cuts, of beef, lamb, and pork as well as organic, free-range dark meat poultry. Only the grass fed meats have the essential Omega 3 fatty acids, whereas corn fed beef is rife with pro #inflammatory , damaging fats. You might save money on such products, yet it’s at your own peril. Ultimately, you could be eating plenty of meat, as a PNS Dominant yet remain nutritionally depleted if you consume processed meats and starchy carbohydrates. Nevertheless, if you feel unduly full, agitated, irritable, or exhausted after eating PNS based foods, and cooking them hasn’t seemed to help, you must reconsider your nervous system status. Depending on your health status and lifelong tendencies, you may be more of a mixed or SNS Dominant type. 
 
Examples of the supplements you should NOT generally be taking when parasympathetic dominant include: #Niacin or B 3 , #Beta carotene , Vit B 6 #P5P , Folic acid , #VitK , #Manganese , #Thiamin or #B1 , #Riboflavin or #B2 , #Magnesium , Higher doses of Vitamin D or Vit C. Those who flush with #niacin are almost certain to be PNS Dominant. 
 
 PNS Dominant #Diet : Generally, those who are PNS Dominant don’t fare as well on starchy carbohydrates yet some are certainly ok. Additionally, the “Inefficient” types require much more cooked food due to very poor digestion.

Generally, the benefits of increasing Phase 1 to Phase 2 #liver #detox with #cruciferous veggies outweighs any other issues (even #phenols ), particularly with smaller yet regular portions.

As a PNS Dominant type, your diet should be about 60-70% protein with 20-30% fruits/veggies/whole grain for best nutritional benefits. Please focus on eating the foods & drinking whatever juices you tolerate for now rather than counting up daily grams of protein or carbs. Most importantly, the meats should be grass fed, generally fattier cuts, of beef, lamb, and pork as well as organic, free-range dark meat poultry. Only the grass fed meats have the essential Omega 3 fatty acids, whereas corn fed beef is rife with pro #inflammatory , damaging fats. You might save money on such products, yet it’s at your own peril.

Ultimately, you could be eating plenty of meat, as a PNS Dominant yet remain nutritionally depleted if you consume processed meats and starchy carbohydrates. Nevertheless, if you feel unduly full, agitated, irritable, or exhausted after eating PNS based foods, and cooking them hasn’t seemed to help, you must reconsider your nervous system status. Depending on your health status and lifelong tendencies, you may be more of a mixed or SNS Dominant type. 



Examples of the supplements you should NOT generally be taking when parasympathetic dominant include:
#Niacin or B 3 ,
#Beta carotene ,
Vit B 6 #P5P ,
Folic acid ,
#VitK ,
#Manganese ,
#Thiamin or #B1 ,
#Riboflavin or #B2 ,
#Magnesium ,
Higher doses of Vitamin D or Vit C.
Those who flush with #niacin are almost certain to be PNS Dominant. 
 


PNS Dominant #Diet :
Generally, those who are PNS Dominant don’t fare as well on starchy carbohydrates yet some are certainly ok. Additionally, the “Inefficient” types require much more cooked food due to very poor digestion.

Notice: This information should not be confused with Dr. Alan Vinitsky’s theory of autonomic nervous system dysfunction in those with #neuroimmune disorders and other #chronic diseases. Due to the consistently emerging evidence of increased cancer risk, I do not advocate high dose folic acid. The reader will find that upon further study of the #methylation pathway, the reasons for this risk is quite clear.
