Sympathetic Nervous System, Paris, Wallis discussed on The Healthy Moms Podcast


I think is the more effective way to go cardio really puts you into your sympathetic nervous system, which is your fighter flight zone. And when you're in fighter flight zone, your body doesn't worry about proper digestion. Your body isn't worrying about what it needs to do to keep you. Live long term. It only worries about what it needs to do to keep you alive short term. And so it worries about the immediacy the here now, and that means high levels of adrenaline pumping out so that you're alert because when you're in this fight or flight mode, you're looking for danger wherever you are, and that's not a safe place for us to be all the time or even fern our so say, you go for an hour run that sympathetic place is not really that healthy for us. We want to stay in a Paris pathetic place, which is a rested digest place, and you can access that place while doing strength training work so you can get fit while not aggravating your system. That makes total sense. Is there any kind of general recommendation that you would give across the board of things those without on your disease should not do, or is it more case by case? Well, I think it is case by case in the idea that it it sort of depends on where you. Are in your healing process? I know that generally, I say that high intensity interval training is probably not your friend intense cross. It is probably not your friend, you know, you can lift, but like going to a cross fit wide where they don't really take rest breaks and they keep the intensity level up really high that has that can be very dangerous spinning classes, even power yoga, like anything. The theme here is any high-intensity work is going to aggravate the symptoms and put you potentially at risk for a flare that said, you know if you have built up tolerance because here's the thing is that you can actually build up. You can't increase your exercise tolerance over time. It just takes a really long period of time. So if you've increased your exercise tolerance over. For time and you're autoimmune condition is being managed than it might be possible that you will do okay at those things. But generally, I say those things are probably not the best forms of exercise, and I know that disappointing to a lot of people like me because with other mean conditions to like a lot of times, we have a lot of anxiety or at least I had a lot of exactly and those types of high intensity workouts were really wet used to manage that executive piece. But ultimately I found that I could manage my exactly actually better by taking those components out and spending more time controlling what I ate, meditating and doing more intensive deep tissue work like foam rolling or the abdominal bracing exercise that I was talking about, like you can still get the same. Neurotransmitters being, you know, those happy hormones being released by doing the less intensive kind of work that took me a long time to understand. Yeah, I think it's a hard concept until you experience to really grasp that. I know like for me, writing on Wallis was born out of a need, like I needed to learn the stuff in it wasn't out there. So I started researching writing it and I know that you've had sort of the same experience with your auto immune strong programs. So can you walk us through a basically kind of what the program is in how it's structured in basically how someone can work through it? It was born out of a need just like you're saying, I was desperate to find someone who could help me get strong without putting the into these exercise induced symptom flare ups, and couldn't I looked everywhere I couldn't find it. So that's finally when I was like, fine, if it doesn't exist, do it myself. And and basically the program that is. Is up. There is is basically what I used to to heal myself. So if you go to the website which is WWW debt get automates drawn dot com. You have access to what's designed as a three month..
