After loading my entire history onto her laptop, not being dismissive of the finest point that can possibly play a role somewhere.. We take a little break to catch my breath & partake of refreshments.
Dr commences her first check-up of pulse rate and blood flow with a stethoscope. Then tests blood pressure.
“Well, I see it’s quite clear that your heart is struggling to maintain adequate blood flow and output during exertion
Compare to earlier and now your pressure has also dropped quite low”
While testing reflex strength and examining my over-all body, she makes general little chit chat and then says:
Ok so you see, we have the:
Which is a portion of the hindbrain that controls autonomic functions such as breathing, digestion, heart and blood vessel function, swallowing, and sneezing.
Its involved in several functions of the body relating to the regulation of important sensory, motor, and mental processes, including:
- Autonomic function control
- Relay of nerve signals between the brain and spinal cord
- Coordination of body movements
- Mood regulation
Above all else, the leading cue for your plethora of cardiopulmonary issues is the medulla being the control center for cardiovascular and respiratory system activity.
It regulates heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and other life-sustaining processes that take place without you having to actively think about them.
It also controls involuntary reflexes such as swallowing, sneezing, and gagging. Another major function is the coordination of voluntary actions such as eye movement.
A number of cranial nerves are located in the medulla. Some of these nerves are important for speech, head, shoulder movement, and food digestion.
A region of the forebrain which coordinates both the autonomic nervous system and pituitary, controlling body temperature, thirst, hunger, other homeostatic systems, sleep and emotional activity.
Is the major endocrine gland, a pea-sized body attached to the base of the brain that is important in controlling growth, development and the functioning of the other endocrine glands.
Since you’ve related the story of the endocrine supplement that attacked your nervous system.. And knowing now in greater detail how all these functions interlink with your Autonomic nervous system, it is clear how everything developed & progressed – As explained in chapter 5
Can you see where and how each part fits?
Me: Yessss 💯
This makes a complete connection 👌
(Trying to absorb everything 💭)
This additional information will assist you in understanding why you have such a vast variety of interlinking complex issues – all stemming down to Autonomic nerve damage / dysfunction, brought on by a crash of trying to change a normal functioning endocrine system.
So we cant “cure” anything. You know where the real cure is. But we will try to create a method that is suitable to get your body onto its most balanced state so that you can live a better quality life.
We’ll introduce a programmed approach in steps at a slow pace, so as not to shock the nervous system and throw it into further chaos.
No hard and fast rules or process, it’ll all be according to how your body reacts to each session of treatment…
