What Is The Most Important Part Of Your Body?

Most Important Part Of Your Body 1

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 nerves which are similar to ‘Wires’.  These nerves have direct and indirect connection to the heart, digestive system, immune system, and the skeleton.

The most important part of your body is your Brain and Nerve System. 

“Your brain is you. Everything else is just plumbing and scaffolding.” Bill Bryson describing the brain in his 2019 book called The Body – A Guide for Occupants,

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 impacts 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.

    Hi Naz,
    Every part of the body is important. The heart is a very important part of the body, and does act like a pump to move blood through the body. Lungs are needed for oxygen exchange, the kidneys for filtering, the liver for detoxifying, and the stomach and intestines for absorbing nutrients, etc. The only part of the body that is completely enclosed by bone to protect it is the brain. The brain also is the organ that coordinates and controls all the organs, and allows the body to interact / respond to the environment. It is the brain that tells the heart to pump more or less depending on the needs of the body. The brain is very complex and we are still learning about how it works and how we can help it be better. What have you done lately to help your brain?

    The heart pumps blood around the body including the brain. so that means if the heart stops every body part will stop working. clearly the heart is the important part of the body

    But without the heart can the brain operate? Please

    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.
