What is Dysautonomia?
Dysautonomia refers to a range of conditions that occur due to the malfunction of the autonomic nervous system, which controls the body's involuntary functions. Vagus Nerve Dysfunction can lead to various manifestations of dysautonomia, affecting the body's ability to maintain homeostasis.
Examples of Dysautonomia Conditions
Our clinic specializes in treating various forms of dysautonomia, including but not limited to:
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) - Characterized by an abnormal increase in heart rate upon standing.
Vasovagal Syncope - A common cause of fainting, triggered by the body's overreaction to certain stimuli.
Neurally Mediated Hypotension - A drop in blood pressure that occurs after standing for long periods.
Gastroparesis - A condition that affects the stomach muscles and prevents proper stomach emptying.
Functional Dyspepsia - Indigestion with no clear cause.
Autonomic Neuropathy - Damage to the nerves that control involuntary bodily functions.
These conditions are heavily associated with vagus nerve dysfunction leading to symptoms of excessive or low vagal tone.
Symptoms of Vagus Nerve Dysfunction
Low Vagal Tone: Do you experience constipation, anxiety, loss of voice, problems swallowing, elevated heart rate or problems with detox? These are some of the common symptoms associated with low vagal tone.
Excessive Vagal Tone: On the flip side, excessive vagal tone can cause its own set of problems. Symptoms may include low heart rate, tight chest, fatigue, diarrhoea and urinary urgency.
