Is Hyper Sympathetic Response The Root Cause Of ADD/ADHD?
What is Hyper Sympathetic Response? It is our survival side of our brain in overdrive. Essentially it is our fight, flight or freeze response which is controlled by our sympathetic nervous system. On the opposite end of the spectrum is our parasympathetic system that deals with resting, healing, digesting and normal function of our organ systems.
When we are in sympathetic dominance then we tend to be in a state of anxiety, depression, digestive distress, headaches, inability to focus, mood swings, etc. Frequently behavior problems and other problems are not really the problem they are a symptom of hyper sympathetic response. Chiropractic adjustments in Denver have been shown to help balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic responses in our body to restore healthy function for whole health, they are not just for back pain.
