Your Nervous System

Neurons Connections LifeYour nervous system is mysterious. Scientists have yet to figure out what it’s saying. Human beings can go down to the bottom of the ocean, pick up a Trans-Atlantic fiber optic cable and tap into almost any conversation in any language, but we have yet to decipher a single nerve communication. The complexity of the nervous system remains elusive and it’s the source of your life or light of your life.

Complexity of Your Nervous System:

In your nervous system there are 100,000,000 neurons or biological wires that connect to 15,000 other biological wires. Giving you 1,500,000,000,000 (1.5 Trillion) connections in your nervous system. Each one of these neurons has a function in the body and that function can be reduced by 50% with 8mm of mercury pressure. To give you an example, when a storm rolls in and your uncle’s knee starts aching, that’s 50-120mm of mercury pressure change. Did you feel it change? This complexity of 1.5 trillion connections and the fragility of these tissues makes it hard to figure out the communications and functions of the nervous system.

Nerve Innate LightOn earth there are 4,770,000,000 cell phones. If every person had 319 contacts that they used daily, the cellular system would be as complicated as your central nervous system. As richmond hill chiropractors, we look at how the body is dysfunctioning and as we adjust vertebra that are misaligned we’re trying to relieve some of the pressure that’s causing the nerve to dysfunction. The slight pressure on 10,000 neurons makes it very hard to predict how the system will recover when the pressure is released because each of those neurons has different function.

Every person reacts differently because no two people are wired the same.  Our nervous systems function differently because of our experiences and injuries those experiences have caused. Every injury has caused scar tissue. The better we take care of those injuries, the less scar tissue. The more we medicate and disregard the healing process, the larger the scar tissue grows with every irritation to the injury.

Scar Tissue Spine

Chiropractic Care:

Under consistent neurological function care (aka chiropractic), injured tissue develops less scar tissue and maintains higher function at a neuronal level (neurons). This affects how you feel.

Health:

But if health were about how you feel, then the person on the most narcotics would be the healthiest. That’s a lie. Health is about function. If you function as close to 100% of your body’s ability, then how you feel is directly proportional to how you’ve taken care of it. At Palmer Chiropractic, we focus on the source of the communication dysfunction that’s keeping your nervous system from commanding and controlling your body to its optimum performance.

Fighting Cancer with Germs

Cancer

cancer cell

Abnormal cells, a precursor to cancer, grow in our bodies at all times. Many things lead to creating multi-nuclei cells (cancer), such as chemicals and radiation. Once these cells mutate, it’s the duty of the innate intelligence inside our body to detect the cancer cells and use its defense mechanisms to eliminate the cancer cells via the immune system. Our immune system is a learned innate intelligence response to foreign antigens, aka germs.

Immune System

The immune system starts working via a mothers breast milk, giving her baby the needed antibodies to fight off diseases while  the newborn’s immune system begins to grow. As the baby transitions from breast milk to regular foods, the newborn’s immune system takes on a bigger  role of fighting off the bacteria and viruses that assault our bodies on a constant basis. Many of the childhood diseases are considered building blocks for the immune system and provide long term immunity in most cases, such as chicken pox. The immune system studies the virus and/or bacteria and starts a library on the foreign invaders, so it will know how to react to them the next time. Part of the immune response includes a fever, extra mucus, coughing, and sneezing (symptoms), all of which are programmed responses to help the body fight off and expel the foreign invaders. As a baby weens off of breast milk, the immune system should be strong enough to handle the normal flora (bacteria present in your environment) and fight them off with minor sickness (having symptoms).

baby crawlingYour immune system is like a baby as it grows. It will use all of its senses to discover how a germ lives in order to recognize them and use its tools to seek them out and destroy them. According to a new study involving pacifiers in Denmark (1), when a health baby is allowed to be involved with germs, greater immune responses evolve. When a baby is subjected to a sterile environment, the immune system starts to act inappropriately. When you reach for the disinfectant and antibiotics for normal childhood symptoms, are you helping the immune system grow or are you robbing it of an opportunity to grow and become stronger?

If childhood diseases are building blocks for the immune system and they help us create a thriving foundation for our children’s immune system, should we rethink how we use products that keep us at arms length from the  childhood germs?

Chiropractic Family

Growing up in a chiropractic family, we weren’t immune to getting sick, but we empowered our bodies with the proper sleep, nutrition, hydration, and a nervous system free of interference, to allow the body to adapt and overcome the foreign antigens. By using the milder diseases as building blocks, our body’s innate intelligence has a greater ability to adapt and survive to it’s environment. Our family is rather healthy and free of most ailments that our environment is inflicting on many children today, such as diabetes, autism, allergies, asthma, reflux, migraines, autoimmune diseases, etc.

The Battle is won in  the Preparation Stage

Back to the immune system. Every day your body is fighting cancer cells by releasing white blood cells that specialize in finding and exterminating irregular cells. Our immune system should be treated like our body.

Lean vs FlabbyDo we like a weak, flabby, couch potato figure? How does someone achieve a flabby body? The flabby body usually didn’t require much work or a plan, it just happens from the mindset “whatever is easiest“.

Or do we gravitate to a lean, muscular, strong body?  How did the muscular/strong frame come to be?  To get a  lean, muscular, strong body, it took a plan that included a lot of work, proper sleep, good nutrition, lots of  hydration, and a nervous system with less interference.

Which type of immune system do you want, a couch potato one or a sleek, mean, green, immune machine?

When you look in the mirror tomorrow, do you see a body and immune system that looks up to the task of the day of fighting cancer cells? Or have you let yourself go a little?  Much of the USA population doesn’t have a choice when it come to fighting cancer; the first layer of the foundation was allowing a baby to come in contact with simple germs while under the protection of mom’s breast milk, but most children have seen a sterile environment and formula for nutrition. Only the outliers get the benefit from dropping their pacifier on the floor and putting it back in their mouth. The second layer of the foundation was the  the childhood diseases, but most children are vaccinated to the point that only the outliers get the benefit from having the chicken pox as a building block. The third layer of the foundation was the common bacterial infection, but most children are given antibiotics for the smallest fever, sniffle, or earache, so only the outliers get the benefit from fevers, common bacteria, and simple upper respiratory infections. In today’s society, how could we think that our bodies could fight off cancer cells when we’re destroying all of the learning experiences for immune system?

Next time you want to sterilize something, inhibit a natural function, or pop an antibiotic in your mouth, stop and ask the question “Am I really helping myself in the long term or am I sacrificing long term health for short term relief?“.

High Blood Pressure

Discussion: The findings of this study represent the first demonstration of a sustained BP lowering effect associated with a procedure to correct the alignment of the Atlas vertebra. The improvement in BP following the correction of Atlas misalignment is similar to that seen by giving two different antihypertensive agents simultaneously. Moreover, this reduction in BP persisted at 8 weeks and was not associated with pain or pain relief or any other symptom that could be associated with a rise in BP.
