Neuro-Adaptive Syndrome (NAS) refers to a collection of symptoms or secondary conditions and dysfunctions arising from the nervous system’s inability to adapt properly to stress and environmental changes. This can lead to a range of physical, emotional and cognitive issues.

Normally when a person’s Automatic Operating System (AOS) is working optimally, stresses and injuries can be overcome and adapted to. When the AOS gets overwhelmed it’s usually because there’s either a large sudden stress or injury, an accumulation of small impacts and stresses over time, or a combination of sudden large and small chronic stresses.

NAS affects the body’s ability to heal, to bounce back from stress or injury, and to thrive.

Since different tissues and organ systems can be affected, symptoms can vary from person to person. The best way to know if you have NAS is to be checked at a clinic that measures NAS.
