Why Is My Nervous System Important?
An amazing self-correcting and self-healing ability exists within us. Science continues to gather evidence of the nervous system’s unique and powerful capacities. Research gathered from a variety of disciplines reveals that the most important key in our body’s healing abilities is a well-functioning nervous system. These disciplines include but are not limited to holistic medical approaches as well as ancient healing traditions.
Your central nervous system consists of your brain and your spinal cord. Proper body function is coordinated by your nervous system between all of the others systems, the digestive, cardiovascular, endocrine and respiratory systems for instance. This happens through nerve impulses from your brain to your body, and from your body to your brain. It is critical that these nerve impulses traveling to and from your brain communicate without glitches for proper function, movement and sensation. The spinal cord, housed in the spinal bones, connects with the brain, held in the skull.
When your nervous system is clear and flexible, there is a natural flow to your life, growth and health. However, when there’s interference to its communication, it becomes a threat to your body’s capacity to respond and recover from symptoms such as neck pain, vertigo, allergies and headaches. Eventually, putting your physical and mental health at risk. Therefore, the primary reason we, as chiropractors, care about spinal decay and arthritis is because having a healthy spinal cord is critical for optimal health. Above all, the nervous system is the master controller!
