Where is the problem located?
We have made astonishing advances in science and technology in the last several decades. We have x-ray, MRI, PET scans, CAT scans etc. As fantastic as they are though we have to ask ourselves - Do they actually show us a picture of the problem or merely a result of the problem?
Think of the body as having three functional divisions.
1. Passive tissue: Bones, cartilage and connective tissue. It provides structure and attachment points, but doesn't "take action".
2. Active tissue: Muscles. Any contractile tissue that can change shape. This includes the muscles in the musculo-skeletal system, but also the heart, blood vessels, and every part of your digestive system.
3. Regulating tissue: Brain and nervous system. This is the tissue concerned with processing information. Just like a computer is just a piece of scrap metal without the ability to process information, your body is really nothing more than information in action. Not only does this information run the system, it also recreates every cell of your body every moment of your existence.
Therefore we would be a lot closer to the core of the issue of health, if we could look at ourselves more as information processors than as physical bodies, because our physical bodies are merely a printout or reflection of how well that information is flowing and being processed.
If we truly understand the principles outlined above, we also understand that all problems of degeneration are brain problems. An X-ray or an MRI is not revealing the problem, but rather the effect. The source of the problem is that some form of regulation (information processing) in the brain and nervous system is not working right and has not been working for a while.
So if you try to find a doctor to help you heal, would you like to find one that works on the source of the problem or just on the symptom?
Also realize that it is difficult to work on the real problem (the imbalance in the nervous system) unless you can measure it scientifically and objectively.
Fortunately it is today possible to perform a quick, simple, painless and non invasive stress response evaluation to find out how the habitual firing patterns of your nervous system is contributing/causing your particular problem.
Our office is equipped with a state of the art neuro-feed back system called Neuroinfiniti.
If you would like more information or schedule an appointment to find out how your nervous system is running, please call 678-638-0898.
