Sympathetic nervous system
Your parasympathetic systems oversee the relaxation response – which is also known as the calming response or the regenerative response. All healing takes place in this restorative system. Blood pressure drops, heart rate goes down, blood sugar regulates, heart rate variability (HRV) goes up, and immune function strengthens. That’s why it’s extremely important to create habits in daily life that activate this branch while creating a more calm sympathetic nervous system.
