Autonomic monitoring provides unprecedented insight into the physiological responses of the autonomic nervous system. Autonomic dysfunction can range from mild to life-threatening.
This non-invasive session determines the functionality and balance of the Autonomic Nervous System by monitoring the physiological response.
The Autonomic Nervous System controls the involuntary functions of the body. Every organ system in the body is affected by the Autonomic Nervous System.
These are some of the symptoms that may indicate the presence of an autonomic dysfunction:
- Dizziness and fainting upon standing up, or orthostatic hypotension
- An inability to alter heart rate with exercise, or exercise intolerance
- Sweating abnormalities, which could alternate between sweating too much and not sweating enough
- Digestive difficulties, such as a loss of appetite, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or difficulty swallowing
- Urinary problems, such as difficulty starting urination, incontinence, and incomplete emptying of the bladder
- Sexual problems in men, such as difficulty with ejaculation or maintaining an erection
- Sexual problems in women, such as vaginal dryness or difficulty having an orgasm
- Vision problems, such as blurry vision or an inability of the pupils to react to light quickly
