The parasympathetic nervous system is one of two parts of the autonomic nervous system. Sometimes called the “rest and digest system,” the parasympathetic system conserves energy as it slows the heart rate, increases intestinal and glandular activity and relaxes sphincter muscles in the gastrointestinal tract.
The body works best on a time schedule. These bodies are actually light sensitive; if you just left them alone they would kind of charge up in the morning when the sun starts coming up. About three hours after the sun goes down, if you don’t have a whole bunch of artificial lighting, they start to gradually discharge and people would actually have natural sleep, a real sleep cycle. Something is supposed to happen when you go to sleep—the body is supposed to repair itself. It’s supposed to get rid of all the garbage that you accumulate during the day and during your activity and actually repair itself.
When these bodies get sick today because of the lifestyles that we see, something interesting happens. With all the drugs, the synthetic vitamins designed to fool the body into thinking that it’s actually getting a nutrient, the toxic water and air, the constant barrage with electronic fields—the autonomic nervous system literally goes haywire. It gets stuck. The body isn’t doing what it’s supposed to be doing when it is resting.
The parasympathetic nervous system, which is supposed to bring about the healing of the body by the replacement of body parts on a cellular level, ends up never quite working when you go to sleep. We’ve used some equipment—the Heart Rate Variability equipment—to test people in various stages of health and disease and found something very interesting. Folks who are intensively, incredibly, in great physical shape, like Navy Seals, and these top performing, gold-medal winning, Olympic-type athletes—when you test them in a resting position their parasympathetic nervous systems are operating in a hyper range. That’s why these guys heal.
I don’t know about you, but if I get out on a baseball field or a basketball court and someone smashes me up, I’m out for a few weeks healing. And yet, you’ve seen these incredible athletes injure themselves and they’re back in the game the next day! How do they do that? Assuming they’re not using steroids, the reason they can do it—we’ve tested these guys—their parasympathetic nervous systems, in a resting position, go into hyper parasympathetic tone. These guys are in great shape and not everyone can get into that kind of condition, despite any training.
However, I can tell you this: about 99% of the patients that come into my office, no matter what their condition is, whether they are resting or not, their parasympathetics are way down in the negative range. In other words, they’re not healing. They’re aging prematurely. Most people’s “sympathetics” are not functioning properly and they stay in the “on” position even when they try to sleep! This is the guy who, no matter how much sleep he gets, wakes up in the morning still tired. Because his body’s been running all night! And you cannot heal if your sympathetic nervous system is not working properly.
And what do they do to compensate for this? All kinds of extreme herbal things to stimulate their body if they’re natural-oriented, or they’re taking drugs, they’re taking medications, or they’re drinking coffee like crazy. They’re having their high-powered European coffees because it’s the in-vogue thing to do. What are they doing? They’re burning themselves out. And they’re trying to be alive.
The truth of the matter is that a body that’s truly alive, is energized by its own metabolism, through the ingestion of natural nutrients in assimilable form (that haven’t been destroyed). Then it will heal and have all the energy you need!
They’re looking for a quick fix, they’re looking for a cover-up, and my experience with patients is that if I don’t get them to see that they’re the ones responsible for the condition they’re in, they came to the wrong office. I only deal with people who are actually there looking for the right answer. They should be asking, “How can I be more responsible for my health?”, “How can I take charge?”, “What do I have to do, Doc, to get myself back in charge?”, “What do I have to do to get myself off of this medical, dwindling spiral that I’m on?”
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these underlying causes are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if we were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing before it was explained to you, you might find it strange, simply because it is probably different from anything you have used or experienced.
If you want restored health and longevity for yourself and your patients, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is and what our recommendations are based on.
The only reason Ulan Nutritional Systems is here is to train clinical masters who get excellent results on 90% or more of cases and become known as healers in their community. We have no other reason for being here. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing is, right from the start.
