“Managing the Ripples”

Now that the pathophysiology of autonomic dysfunction is understood, it’s easy to understand the ways to minimize the effects of vasovagal hyperactivity during the years it may affect an individual. Basically, it begins by realizing that the young body is a high-performance machine and needs to be treated as such. Just as you would not put cheap gasoline and oil in a Ferrari and not maintain all its fluids correctly, you should not put cheap food and drink in your body and not maintain its fluids correctly. The management of autonomic dysfunction is most often entirely lifestyle changes. In the rare event that these don’t work, however, pharmacologic management often does the trick.
