Health Tip of the Week
Connecting Dots
If you open up any anatomy book, you will see how remarkable the human body is. There are literally trillions of cells that are controlled and coordinated by one system of the body-the nervous system. A mathematician from Cornell University in New York has recently calculated that the human brain can process up to 20 million billion calculations per second of conscious and unconscious “thought”. To put that in perspective, the world’s fastest computer can process 1 million billion calculations per second in a discrete non-randomized format. In other words, our brains far outpace any computer and “lateral” thought-type processes bring computers to a relative halt.
Fibromyalgia & Pain
The American Pain Society, in May 2015 heard compelling evidence from Dr. Daniel Chauw, M.D., at the Annual Pain Society Scientific Meeting, that the pain comes more from the brain and spinal cord than from areas of the body in which someone may experience peripheral pain. The condition is believed to be associated with disturbances in how the brain processes pain and other sensory information. People with fibromyalgia feel more pain than normally would be expected. Because of this neurologic connection, people with fibromyalgia often notice less pain and more freedom under chiropractic care.
UVA Medical School Calls For Rewrite
One of the nation’s leading Medical Schools has produced new information about the immune and nervous system that Dr. Jonathon Kipnis, lead researcher at UVA, claims will require anatomy and physiology textbooks to be rewritten. The study found that brain tissue was connected to a peripheral immune system through meningeal lymphatic vessels. Dr. Antoine Louveau discovered the original findings while working with mice. “The close proximity of the lymphatic vessels to blood vessels made the connection easy to miss,” said Louveau.

What this discovery means to you is that the brain’s influence over immunity is inextricably linked and can possibly help explain why chiropractic adjustments have such a dramatic impact on immunity. Regular visits to the chiropractor have been proven to increase serum thiol levels. Serum thiol is a free radical scavenger and high levels are suspected to help slow the aging process and increase immune function. This new study only adds more power to the compelling argument that being well adjusted is not just a state of mind, but a healthy way of living.
