The effect of

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is divided into two parts, the
sympathetic (SNS) and the parasympathetic systems (PNS).
The SNS creates what is commonly known as the “fight or
flight response”. In the event of a perceived
emergency, the body will suppress all non-critical physiological
systems and push the blood into the muscles for quick action.
Non-critical systems include digestion, reproduction,
gestation, milk production, immune function, higher brain functions,
growth and repair processes, and sleep.
not to say that any SNS response is bad. For
instance, it’s the SNS that keeps a person from passing out due to
the effects of gravity upon their blood when they stand up quickly.
The point is that continual activation of the SNS is very
detrimental to our health.
The PNS is the counterpoint to the SNS. It
generates what might be termed the “relaxation response”, and when
activated, helps suppress the SNS. When the PNS
is activated, the body digests well, reproduction, gestation, and
milk production are supported, the immune system is active, our
brains are happy and functional, injured tissue is repaired, new
tissue is formed, and we get a good night’s sleep.
Thus it makes sense to keep the body in a slightly PNS dominant
state whenever possible. This can be
accomplished very easily with
Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA.
To understand the effect that Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA can have
on the nervous system, we need to review the effect of minerals on
the autonomic nervous system (ANS). There are four minerals that
play key roles in the balance of the autonomic nervous system
namely, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium. They work as
Di-Potassium EDTA can have a very powerful calming effect on the
nervous system by both blocking the stress response as well as
stimulating the relaxation response. Many
clients report feelings of profound relaxation within 5 to 20
minutes of taking Magnesium Di-Potassium EDTA precisely because of
how it affects the (ANS).
On the other hand Di-Sodium EDTA and Calcium Di Sodium EDTA can do
the exact opposite. They turn off the relaxation
response and stimulate the fight or flight response.
This is most easily observed by the increase in pulse rate
these forms of EDTA can cause.
Heart Rate Variability tests results
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) testing is a
recognized and well researched method for determining the stress
level of a client.
The Red range
represents the sympathetic system, and is associated
with the "fight or flight" stress response.
The Green range
represents a mixture of both the sympathetic
(2/3rds) and parasympathetic (1/3rd) systems.
The Blue range
represents the parasympathetic system and so is
responsible for relaxation.
In this first test, you can see that the client is
all sympathetic and virtually no parasympathetic (all in the red
range). In this state, all the blood is sent to the muscles for
survival. Digestion, growth and repair, immune function, higher
brain functions, and the ability to sleep are all suppressed.
Cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline are the predominant hormones
in this state.
This second test was taken after one Magnesium
Di-Potassium EDTA suppository. You can see the shift from the
sympathetic to parasympathetic systems (blue range). With this
reading, a client will be relaxed, and the growth and repair, immune
function, higher brain functions, and the ability to sleep are
