Disturbances of the nervous system

The nervous system is divided into two parts, the central nervous system (CNS) which consists of the brain and spinal cord, and then the peripheral nervous system (PNS) which contains nerve cells that carry information to and from the CNS. The nervous system controls body functions and enables communication between different parts of the body. Disturbances of the nervous system can include headaches and migraines. Headaches may have a number of possible causes; these include dehydration, referral from the neck or jaw, tension headaches, congestion, food sensitivities or organ referral. Migraines are recurrent, severe headaches and are associated with abnormal nerve and blood vessel activity in the cerebrum. Causes can be related to foods, additives, alcohol, caffeine, low serotonin levels (due to poor digestive function and lack of certain nutrients) or emotions, hormonal changes and poor sleep.  More serious conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS) have been linked to vitamin D and vitamin B12 deficiencies, Parkinsons Disease has been linked to exposure to pesticides, diet, heavy metals and certain drugs, Alzheimer’s Disease has been linked to heavy metal toxicity, higher cortisol levels (chronic stress), nutritional deficiencies, sleep disturbances and poor thyroid function. Bio-energetic testing can help to make possible links between symptoms.
