How does one take care of their autonomic nervous sytem. How about taking care of the parasympathetic sympathetic and central nervous system?

Intriguing question: Control of the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) probably best attained by studying biofeedback, autogenic training, and meditation. A web-based program at heartmath.Com is recommended. Otherwise, an ascetic isolated decade-long yogi sojurn in an himalayan cave can be undertaken. The idea is to train the unconscious mind to be obedient. Avoid anger and fear. Seek love.
