How your brain, body, and mind talk to one another is the single most important part to re-establish health in any area of your life!
Your brain’s ability to adapt to new life experiences and grow new nerve cells in your brain is called neuroplasticity.
What is neuroplasticity and why is it important for us to understand how all of our experiences have molded our brain-body communication that shapes our health mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually? Previous beliefs scientists had about the fixed brain structures and fixed learning patterns of the brain were thought to be very plastic for just the formative years to age 7. New current research is shedding light on the ability for all structures of the brain to adapt, grow, and share areas of the brain in a new plastic way never before thought possible. This becomes the new basis for changing your brain and changing your life now!
Lets apply this information in a positive way. By learning new information, by adapting with new skills, and by growing with new challenges that you are presented with in life, your brain can adapt to any stressful situation you encounter in your life thru neuroplasticity. This really means you can change your life into any kind of new life style you want. If you want to heal your body of a sickness or condition, create new pathways in your brain-body communication that tells the new part of your brain-body to function with better health. You will find there are many ways to enhance the building of these new nerve pathways in your brain to accomplish what you want to be, or do in your life or have in your life. You will be exploring information that has been developed to build these tools on this website. You can use these untapped resources to assist you with using your whole brain power to accomplish any new project. If you want to become an expert in any area, build the new nerve cells in your brain to purposely reinforce and strengthen those new cell habits to produce the result you want. If you want to have better family or personal relationships, build new grooves in your new brain cells to make this happen. Help your brain cells create the new specialized activities so you can have the kind of life you desire by building and reinforcing the neuroplastic pathways. There are multiple micro-systems in the acupuncture system or acupressure system that allows you in a very simple way of creating and reinforcing the new brain-body communication to facilitate building new neuroplastic pathways. More about other tools to use this neuroplasticity later.
Brain Trauma & Injuries Cause Degeneration In Your Brain-Body Health!
Could a brain trauma like a whiplash injury create a negative neuroplasticity effect? A traumatic brain injury which is caused in a whiplash injury sets off o whole series of disruptive brain-body changes:
1) a cervical sprain due to a car accident
2) a dowager’s hump sprain which converts the cervical trauma
into this chronic compression of vital blood flow to the brain
3) a reduction in the acupuncture energy at the base
of the neck and throughout your body;
4) the brain is slammed against the inside of the
forehead or into the back of the head causing brain swelling;
5) the body goes into survival mode in less than 4/10 of a second
before your nervous system can react to protect itself
6) your immune system shuts down leaving you susceptible to infections
7) your body begins storing food and you start gaining weigh
8) brain functions are scattered and disorienting –
it becomes difficult to make good decisions
9) blood flow sent to muscles gets stuck, pools, creates swelling
10) hormones are disrupted because of skull pressure on the pituitary
Where does that leave you? This sets the stage for serious complication that will call for extensive brain energetic therapy. The postural changes induced by the accident have significant impact on the entire brain-body communication breaking the down brain-body talk. How does that look? Posture distortion is a good place to see the physical sign that the brain is lopsided in its control of the body. Muscles on one side of the body are in spasm; the muscles on the opposite side are weak because they lack the proper amounts of nerve supply that have been pinched in the accident. So what do you do? You compensate. You compromise your health. Your Ego’s internal brain chatter says “Oh, I wasn’t really hurt. I ‘ll get over this in due time.” Ever hear that internal dialogue about a car accident. Well, the doctor at the emergency room says I was fine. “You’ll just have a little soreness for awhile. It will take a little while for you to get back to normal”
Wait a minute! We just talked about the positive side of neuroplasticity that allows you to strengthen the brain and rebuild your body. Now you have created the opposite side of the neuroplasticity coin and the brain is creating bad cell development because of multiple traumatic energies telling your brain to act in a destructive pattern. This is called degenerative neuroplasticity. Learning disabilities, ADD, ADHD are created in this kind of trauma. Your brain has lost control of your bodies ability to heal itself. Your nerve system is locked into an emergency mode because your brain and nerve system have been damaged. Additional Learning Disabilities ??are created when your brain reverts back to former protective reflex development in childhood known as a primitive reflexes. These reflexes can reach all the way back to the early time of 0-3 years of age. This can be very confusing to an adult, because it restricts normal adult brain activity.
The brain is plastic. It is the brains nature to adapt to positive or negative stresses that change the architecture of the brain cells and its environment. Even negative thoughts or experiences can create a toxic environment. Positive thoughts or experiences can also create a positive healing environment. Focus on creating a fertile environment that gives you the kind of life you want to experience now!
