Headaches And Migraines

We learn a lot about the Heart in grade school, but that’s not the most important part of your body!

It is actually your Brain and the Nerve System.

Your brain and nerve system controls and coordinates everything in your body.  It is the master control system in your body.  We have a skull to protect it, as well as a spine to protect its ‘Wires’.  Throughout life we put our body, brain, and nerve system under a lot of stress.

See how the spine adapts to protect the spinal cord when put under stress here.

The most important part of your body is your Brain and Nerve System. This is the master control system of your body.

Chiropractic is the best way to help ensure that the situations your throw at your body, brain, and nerve system are not going to negatively affect your life.  So take care of the most important part of your body and get checked by your Chiropractor! You are worth it.

The importance regarding your brain is easy to see in your own life and those around you. But if you want to see what scientists are discovering regarding the brain, here is some very interesting research discussing how the brain controls the immune system!

What is the Most Important Part of Your Body?

The Brain.

A lot of times because I am a chiropractor people will guess the spine. But because today is the talk about growing your brain, the brain is on the top of your mind and you are all guessing correctly.  The most important part of your body is your Brain.  The body even thought so and this is where I come to the white board which is going to be a little smaller here. The body thought the brain was so important that it completely enclosed it in bone. So you’ve got the brain, and in that brain, the skull surrounding it. Now that brain controls and coordinates everything that we do. Everything, those nerves go out to the feet, hands, heart and those nerves even go out to more curious things like the immune system, lungs kidneys and glands. Every aspect of that body, the brain has a direct connection to through the nerves. So there’s a nice picture of the brain. We all know it’s a curious organ in the head. We might live there or think there, who knows. Our soul might be there, who knows. But the brain does connect to every part of our body through those nerves. And you’ll see them extend. Here’s some other pictures here. You’ll see it extends all the way down to other parts of your body. Anatomically we have known this for a long time. It hasn’t been for too long that researchers started dissecting bodies. There are some pathways that the nerves take so that there all mapped out and how it gets from one part to the next and what part of the spinal cord has what part. Here’s another simple version showing how the brain connects out. And for kids I try and help them realize this because they don’t use wires anymore. I say it’s not wireless, the brain has direct connections from one part to the next. It’s more like the old computers with the cords. So less like the wireless devices.

Sincerely,

Dr. Callum Peever,

Chiropractor in Mississauga at Erin Mills Optimum Health

    1. Many people answer with the heart initially, as it is very important (every part of the body is very important and serves a purpose) and pumps blood through the body.
      But what runs the heart?
      What tells the heart to speed up and slow down depending on the situation?
      The brain does.
      The brain will also contract and dilate blood vessels to regulate the blood pressure it needs to operate the body.
      And the body thought that the brain was so important that it completely protects it in the bony skull.
