Benefits of Parasympathetic Dominance

One of the great insights of the recently published scholarly article on NuCalm is that it proves the system can quickly put your body into parasympathetic dominance. This is good for your body, and offers many benefits to your physical and mental health and wellbeing. All these benefits mean that you should choose to use NuCalm to fight stress and enjoy parasympathetic nervous system dominance more often.

Enjoy the Benefits of True Rest

Fight or Flight vs. Rest and Digest

One critical part of our nervous system is the autonomic nervous system, which controls many of the body’s functions that happen without conscious thought, such as breathing, heart rate, digestion, and sweating. It’s further broken down into two parts: the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

The sympathetic nervous system takes charge to respond to threats. It controls our so-called fight or flight response. Adrenaline kicks in, you start to sweat, and your heart rate picks up. The parasympathetic nervous system controls our rest and digest states. The body focuses on digestion and healing. Heart rate slows. You sweat less.

There are many good reasons why we want to get into parasympathetic dominance more often.

Avoid Chronic Stress

Many people live in a constant state of stress. You have so much going on in your life, with so many demands that you can’t possibly live up to that you are unable to relax.

We can all agree that chronic stress can be bad for your health. It’s important to get yourself out of this stress response regularly. Stress might seem to make this impossible, but that’s the benefit of NuCalm: it scientifically disarms your body’s stress response to help you achieve parasympathetic nervous system dominance for rest and recovery.

Eat Better and Digest Better

Chronic stress can negatively impact your eating habits and digestion. It can lead to unhealthy weight loss or weight gain coupled with malnutrition.

You don’t want to eat a real meal when you’re stressed, and this becomes a problem because, instead, you lean on snacks and comfort foods that can be high in fat, salt, and sugar but low in nutrients. Additionally, as your body is restricting resources from your digestive system, you might experience digestion problems, such as upset stomach or diarrhea.

With NuCalm, you can tell your body to prioritize this vital system to improve your ability to eat healthy and digest properly.

Enjoy Quality Sleep

It’s hard to sleep when your brain is rushing, focused on all the threats–actual and imagined–that you’re facing. That’s a symptom of sympathetic nervous system dominance, the manifestation of brainwaves that are inharmonious.

But with NuCalm, you can see your racing thoughts calmed so that you can get to sleep more easily and have a better quality and more restorative sleep.

Heal Better

When your body is in sympathetic dominance, it isn’t putting resources into healing. You know this might impact you after an injury or surgery, but the truth is that stress can hurt you on a daily basis. You know that burn you get from a good workout? That’s actually muscle injury. Ideally, it should be stimulating your body to heal and build more muscle, but when you’re in sympathetic dominance, that injury may not heal and you may not be building the muscle you want.

And, of course, there’s the impact on your immune system. Chronic stress can put you at higher risk for contracting illness, which is exactly what you don’t want at the beginning of flu season.

So give your body a break with parasympathetic dominance thanks to NuCalm and see how much better you can heal and avoid illness.

Take the Long View

Does your life feel like one unending stream of surprises? You careen from one crisis to another and can’t ever seem to get ahead. Part of this might be true, but part of it might be an artifact of sympathetic nervous system dominance. When your sympathetic nervous system is running the show, it makes everything look like a crisis. It forces you to look only in the short term, making it hard to anticipate and plan for the future. It’s proven that being chronically stressed makes it hard for you to identify new and emerging threats.

But taking some time in parasympathetic dominance can help you take a longer view. When you do this, you might realize that life isn’t actually as much of a rollercoaster as you thought–it’s a highway with turns and exits. There are ways to avoid many of the problems in our lives. And if you can’t avoid them, you can at least prepare for them. Get control of your life–don’t let it control you.

Enjoy Parasympathetic Dominance

Do you like the sound of all these benefits of parasympathetic dominance? If this seems like a better way to live than your current situation, then it’s time to consider the NuCalm alternative to stress. Put the parasympathetic system behind the wheel so you can not only rest, but be prepared for when the pressure’s really on.
