The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is the part of the mammalian nervous system responsible for the control and regulation of the involuntary bodily functions, including heartbeat, blood vessels constriction, breathing, movements of visceral smooth muscles necessary for digestion, endocrine activity and mobility.
The ANS consists of two subsystems:
The Sympathetic system, which acts stimulating to prepare for physical action or emergency “fight and flight”
The Parasympathetic system, which acts calming, stress releasing, “rest and digest” control function, the opposite of sympathetic.
Both subsystems trigger and control the regulative feedback to different stressors (changes) either from the direct cellular milieu (connective tissue, cell metabolism, psycho-emotional stressors), or from the external environment (microbes, toxins, stress).
With the ANS being the control tower for all our organs we can gain unparalleled insight into the body’s auto regulation capabilities by looking at its reactions. This is invaluable information when it comes to diagnosis and choosing the right treatment for a patient.
Optimal gut health has become a prominent focus in 21st century healthcare. The presence of too many bad critters in the gut has been linked to numerous health problems including autism, obesity, diabetes, allergies, autoimmune disorders, depression, cancer, heart disease, fibromyalgia, eczema, and asthma. The links between chronic illness, even cancer and an imbalanced microbiome (gut bacteria) keep growing every day.
You can begin to understand the importance of gut health when you consider that there are 500 microbe species and three pounds of bacteria in your gut. There are trillions of bacteria in your gut, and they collectively contain at least 100 times more genes than you do.
Intestinal health could be defined as the optimal digestion, absorption, and assimilation of food. This is a big job that depends on many other factors. For example, the bugs in your gut are like a rain forest, a diverse and interdependent ecosystem. They must be in balance for you to be healthy. These bacteria, good and bad, must communicate and live in SYMBIOSYS. Too many of the wrong ones like parasites, yeasts or pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or not enough of the good ones like Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium, leads to serious damages to your health. This unbalanced state of gut microbiota is known as DYSBIOSIS
The composition and overall health of the gut microbiome will shift with changes in your diet, bouts of illness, addictions such as alcohol or drugs, stress, body weight, age, and exposure to new, polluted, unfriendly environments. Given the important functions of your gut microbiome, it’s not hard to imagine the biological chaos that can result when things in the gut are out of balance. A significant body of research demonstrates the link between gut bacteria imbalance (dysbiosis) and many diseases common in Western society. In fact, it’s tough to find a condition that’s not in some way linked to the gut health.
In our newest video we explore the gastrointestinal tract, explain its functions and all the possible disorders you can suffer from. We then focus on one of the best methods to holistically and non-intrusively detect and treat gastrointestinal tract disorders, called EDS (Electrodermal Screening).
In Europe, every 90 seconds occurs a death due to heart conditions, yearly are being spent over 18 Billion with cardiovascular diseases. In USA are spent over 70 Billion p.a. In USA, there are over 600,000 people dying yearly because of heart conditions and one quarter of them are younger than 65. Half of people early retired die because of heart and cardiovascular problems.
Younger people are being affected by cardiovascular disorders. Life span in the medium age segment of 45-55 sunk by 11 years due to cardiovascular issues; every forth individual around 40 years old age has a heart attack.
Heart attack is today the number one epidemic and cause of death! What did medical establishment understand from these alarming figures?
• Medical concept about heart attack: One is as old as his arteries are. Arteries plaque creates thrombi (clots) and this is responsible for Heart Attack, High Blood Pressure (HBP), Angina Pectoris, all Cardiovascular diseases. Despite thousands of studies, arteriosclerosis has never been correctly understood as well as the heart attack
• Coronary vessels are very important securing the blood supply to the heart muscles. When coronary arteries are weakening, and a blood clot occurrs, the heart muscles stop working properly, the heart is cut off from blood supply. Coronary vessels are deadlocks arteries.
• From all medical and clinical studies, it is well known that arteriosclerosis affects all blood vessels in the human body; then, based on the number of existent blood vessels we would need to have 83% of infarcts in gastrointestinal vessels, 13% in the throat and head and only 4% in the heart.
• Another question the medical establishment has not answered is: why do we have heart infarct only in the left side of the heart? Why not on the right?
Beginning of 20th century many cardiologists from Europe experimented in hospitals and clinics and studied how heart attack occurs; their explanations are more plausible and explain all experimental data collected to thousands: here is what they figured out:
• The left ventricle does more work as the right one and the muscles on the left are more densified, left heart wall is several times heavier as the right ventricle wall. This creates more stress on the heart cells on the left side as on the right sided ventricle
• When pumping the arterial blood into the body, the left sided muscles and cells are pumping out of their capillaries the blood and thus the blood circulation is for some milliseconds cut off and this happens min. 70 times/min (Prof. Landois discovered this phenomenon in 1979).
• This blood stop/stenosis on the inside heart muscles seems to be the potential trigger of a heart attack. It always begins with dead points in the left heart cells, known as necrosis. The blood nourishment of heart cells is in this necrosis more and more deficient. When the heart is accelerating, pulse goes over 100 and sometimes over 150-180, then the blood circulation in these cells is even poorer, more heart tissue is dyeing, heart attack is coming closer
• Dr. Kern, a cardiologist in a German hospital found out that not a blood supply stop is the real cause of a heart attack, but the disturbed metabolisms of oxygen transported by the blood is the real cause of a heart attack. Logical consequence of this experimental clear information is that heart attack can be prevented and in acute cases it can be stopped only by using remedies which quickly re-establish a correct heart muscle metabolism.
• Strophanthin is the single natural product known today which can stop and prevent a heart attack as it reestablishes a healthy heart muscle metabolism in minutes after the intake
• 9 of 10 heart attacks are being stopped by using Strophanthin and this was what Dr. Kern did in the hospital where he was chief of cardiology department. This was fully documented in 1971.
Strophanthus Gratus is an African shrub; Strophanthin, known also as Ouabain is extracted from Strophanthus seeds. Strophanthin is a heart glycoside like Digitalis, however with a totally different pharmaco-dynamic; it is a signal transducer stimulating the heart metabolism, reducing Angiotensin II. Its bioactivity and absorption are almost instantly at minimum 67%.
• Strophanthin is also a body own hormone secreted in adrenal glands and Hypothalamus
• Strophanthin is working through the ubiquitous Natrium-Potassium Pump on different levels: Reduces Calcium content, higher fatty acids oxidation, reduces lactic acid concentration in the heart, reduces Noradrenalin production in heart neuronal cells, limiting thus Sympathetic activity and sustaining Parasympathicotonia; this helps blood vessels (arteries) to dilate and sustain a better blood circulation. It regulates blood pressure, either reducing Hypertonia or increasing Hypotonia. Strophanthin is reducing inflammatory processes, protects neuronal and kidney cells, increases Melatonin production (pubmed.com), helps heal dementia, glaucoma.
From 1885 until 1990 it was the medication of first choice for any heart attack or heart disorder such as Tachycardia, Angina Pectoris, High blood pressure (HBP), Heart Arrhythmia.
