8 Signs of A Dysregulated Nervous System



Here’s a post about some strange 8 Signs of a Dysregulated Nervous System

What does “Dysregulation” mean? ⁠
⁠Essentially, your nervous system which consists of your brain, spinal cord (and gut, which a lot of people don’t know), has a natural orchestra or harmony that keeps your body and mind in check.

If this harmony or orchestra is maintained, then it is considered to be “regulated”.⁠

However, if you face a consistent threat, your nervous system will react accordingly. It is the part of your body that’s responsible for your fight or flight system.

The stress from this threat is what kicks your anxiety into overdrive, which is the reason why many of these are anxiety symptoms.⁠

This is why it’s essential to get work done on both fronts: your mind and your diet, which are both important parts of your nervous system if you feel dysregulated.

8 Signs of a Dysregulated Nervous System:

1. Digestive/gut issues, constipation, diarrhea, flatulence, and IBS:

2. Energy slumps, fatigue:

Energy slumps, fatigue, and a decrease in attention control and focus due to brain fog, sleep problems

3. Appetite and weight changes:

4. Excessive peeing and going to the toilet:

When your nervous system is constantly stressed and in ‘fight-or-flight’ mode, it often signals to your body to pee to release waste in response to a threat.

5. Anxiety Increase:

Increase in anxiety and panic attacks, stressing over minor things, and hypervigilance

6. Allergic Reaction:

More allergic reactions include colds, skin rashes, fevers, etc.
This is also because your nervous system is over-stressed and more likely to treat harmless substances as hostile.

7. Dramatic Mood:

More dramatic mood swings, irritability, and outbursts of Anger.

8. Hypersensitivity:

Hypersensitivity to sensory stimuli especially loud noises, crowds, and certain smells as well as to other people’s emotions


There’s a reason why a dysregulated nervous system and anxiety are so closely related anxiety is what happens when your body reacts to a threat, activating your fight-or-flight mode.
To heal this, we can look at two fronts: psychology, using psychotherapy methods to reduce anxiety including reframing our thoughts and mindfulness; and diet, reducing our intake of inflammatory foods and doing tests to see if we have any allergies or deficiencies.
