Physio PS provides unprecedented insight into the physiological responses of the autonomic nervous system.
In general, Parasympathetic and Sympathetic (P&S) Monitoring helps to diagnose and treat patients, enhancing the ability to return health and establish wellness. Once wellness is established (or if the patient was well to begin with), P&S Monitoring helps to maintain wellness and prevent dysfunction, disorder, and disease.

There are numerous reasons for headaches: medication mismanagement, neurologic, cardiologic, etc. P&S Monitoring provides more information to further differentiate. Whether P or S, P&S-mediated headaches are associated with improper brain perfusion (too little or too much, respectively), triggering the neurological effects that underlie headache. P&S Monitoring specifies which and enables more specific therapy. Once P&S balance is established, any remaining symptoms are due to a brain disorder.
From a P&S perspective, Bipolar Disease is a primary PE disorder; therefore, and primary depression disorder. Once the PE is normalized, the SE (secondary to PE) is typically relieved organically, without additional medication. With P&S imbalance, the anxiety phases of Bipolar Disease are cycled when brain perfusion becomes too low, typically after an event that is associated with increased Parasympathetic tone (after large meals, before bedtime, after emotional responses). Once P&S balance is established, any remaining symptoms are psychological issues.
In general, Orthostatic dysfunction is associated with alpha-sympathetic (adrenergic) insufficiency (Sympathetic Withdrawal, or SW) causing lower extremity vascular dysfunction upon standing, which causes a drop in BP upon standing (head-up postural change). P&S Monitoring quantitatively specifies SW, helping to differentiate Orthostatic dysfunction, including Orthostatic Intolerance, Orthostatic Hypotension, Orthostatic Hypertension, and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), from other causes of dizziness and lightheadedness (including Syncope). Treat the SW to relieve any of the forms of Orthostatic dysfunction. Note, the majority of patients with Orthostatic dysfunction are found to simply be dehydrated. Consider proper daily hydration as the primary recommendation.
By the time of diagnosis, both forms of Diabetes (types I & II) are characterized by SE: (1) at first due to both an initial decline in resting Parasympathetic activity causing high SB (indicating resting SE) and a (protective) challenge PE causing a secondary challenge SE, (2) then due to the continuing effects of sugar acidosis on the more highly exposed Vagus Nerve which comprises the majority of the Parasympathetic Nervous System. In type II Diabetes, Prediabetes is characterized by challenge PE shutting down (at least in part) the production of insulin. Once P&S balance is established, any remaining symptoms are end-organ issues.
BP is controlled by Baroreceptor Reflex (BRR), which is controlled by the Sympathetics. Hypertension is typically characterized by SE driving up BRR and then BP. At first, hypertension is due to both an initial decline in resting Parasympathetic activity causing high SB (indicating resting SE) and a (protective) challenge PE causing a secondary challenge SE, then it is due to the continuing effects of SE.
