The central nervous system is responsible for the function of everything. In fact, our nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in our body and coordinates them together so that our body works in perfect harmony. True health is our body functioning 100%, 100% of the time. It is important to make the connection that health is optimal function and it’s our nervous system that controls that function. Therefore, in order for you to have true health, your nervous system must be able to control and coordinate the function of every cell, tissue and organ without interference. The brain and spinal cord are connected to every cell, tissue and organ via our spinal nerve system. The spinal nerve system is composed of three types of nerves.
• Sensory nerves: These nerves tell the brain what is happening in our internal and external environment.
• Motor nerves: These nerves control and coordinate our muscles.
• Autonomic nerves: These nerves control and coordinate our organs, blood vessels and glands.
Think about it. What do you think would happen to your health if any part of your nervous system were to be interfered with?
