Sympathectomy?

Sympathectomy?

Postby themsforum.org » Sun, 21 Oct 2012, 6:44 pm

Some patients develop a serious sweating problem to such an extent that they undertake the surgical treatment called a sympathectomy.
Sympathectomy physically destroys relevant nerves anywhere in either of the two sympathetic trunks, which are long chains of nerve ganglia located bilaterally along the vertebral column (situated to reduce the potential for injury) responsible for various important aspects of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Each nerve trunk is broadly divided into three regions: cervical (neck), thoracic (chest), and lumbar (lower back). The most common area targeted in sympathectomy is the upper thoracic region, that part of the sympathetic chain lying between the first and fifth thoracic vertebrae.

These trunks are extremely important for proper organic function. Experience shows that TMJ treatment and the correction of the Atlas cures a number of such conditions. ETS is used to treat hyperhidrosis, facial blushing, Raynaud's disease and reflex sympathetic dystrophy. By far the most common complaint treated with ETS is palmar hyperhidrosis, or colloquially known as "sweaty palms".

From another post under ME/CFS previously printed in Positive Health Magazine:

"An additional point that I wish to bring to the attention of the readers is that from the age of 16 up to just before I was fitted with my brace, I had always weighed 71/2 stone. My metabolism was very high; I was always gasping for air and sweating excessively. My body produced so much heat, I felt like a walking furnace. No matter what I ate or how much I ate, I found it hard to put on weight. I am now 9 stone and my metabolism has normalized."
Similarly many patients have recovered from Raynauds disease.
