Parasympathetic dominant

    If a person is parasympathetic dominant, can engaging in short, multiple high intensity (sympathetic dominant) activities daily (heavy weights, sprinting etc) slowly make a permanent change to a balanced autonomic nervous system?

    And eventually back down the training but still keep the balance

    Depends on the cause of the hyperactivity of the PVN versus the vagus. The path to Rome is not the same.

    Is it possible to be genetically ANS imbalanced? I need MORE pvn stimulus

    Seriously doubt that anyone is vagal dominant in todays world.

    All studies (NCBI) that I find regarding non allergic vasomotor rhinitis states all subjects had significant autonomic dysfunction to the control. Stating overactive parasympathetic hence dilation of blood vessels in the turbinates etc. plus, all other symptoms relating to parasympathetic dominance I seem to have. Fast digestion, sluggish, allergy etc.
    Anything adrenaline related constricts the blood vessels in my stuffy nose and I can finally nose breathe easily! For a few minutes..

    By the way, alcohol or nicotine gum make my nasal turbinates swell even more. ( nicotine was just an experiment)
    Does that give any clue into which nero/ANS system going on?
    Thanks for your time Jack.
