Anatomy of the Autonomic Nervous System Sympathetic Parasympathetic

The brain controls our organ function in the body. As you can see, the heart, lungs, digestive system, urinary system and genitalia are all under brain control.

It is the balance of the neurologic control that is key. We must find balance.

The autonomic neurologic system (ANS) comes from the brain.  There are two branches: parasympathetic (in blue above) and sympathetic (in yellow above) .

The parasympathetic is also known as “rest and digest”.

The sympathetic system is “fight or flight”.

Balance of the ANS is crucial for:

  1. Heart rhythm / atrial fibrillation
  2. Hypertension
  3. Congestive heart failure
  4. Diabetes
  5. Digestion
  6. Liver/gall bladder function
  7. Sexual function/ erectile dysfunction/ libido
  8. Asthma/ emphysema and COPD
