Reboot Your Brain Part 2
By Dr. George Bobbitt
In Part One I left you with this: Adjusting the spine reboots the body’s hard-drive, installs new software, removes malware and cleans out the viruses that impede a clear communication path between the brain and the body.
Here is "The Why:"
Most of what we perceive as reality is simply what our brains consider reality to be, or our brain’s interpretation and translation of all the information it gets from its sensory receptors (in our eyes, skin, ears, muscles, etc.).
With this in mind, is it then possible that what you see in front of you is a complete and accurate reflection? Neuroscientists know otherwise.
Our brain fills in the gaps, as needed, based on past experiences and expectations. Our brain will not provide us an exact translation of what its sensors tell it, but it will integrate this sensory information with its own expectations and come up with its own reality. Basically, all of your senses send information to the brain, and your brain decides what to do next with the input it receives.
When a spinal segment does not move properly, it appears to influence how the brain perceives and responds to all other sensory information. This dysfunction of the spine appears to cause a distraction for the brain that makes it harder for it to accurately ‘see’ what is going on in other places.
In other words: the brain does not accurately perceive what is going on in the body.
Here is another way of simplifying all this science. Consider this question. Have you ever ended up in pain for no apparent reason? Pain that just sort of appeared one day? Most of the time, pain and conditions with other symptoms don’t necessarily happen all of a sudden for no reason. They can slowly develop, without your awareness, much like the build-up of a thousand straws on the camel’s back before it breaks. Only when the last straw is added and the camel’s back breaks do you feel or become aware of the issue.
If the brain does not know accurately what is going on, then it cannot control the body correctly. Spinal dysfunction not only affects how the brain perceives and controls the spine, but how it perceives and controls the rest of the body, too. As this process develops, we see a perpetuation of chronic conditions becoming our new reality.
The spinal adjustment helps to improve communication between the spine and brain influencing the accuracy of our brain’s inner reality about what is actually happening in the body. The spinal adjustment also improves the accuracy with which your brain perceives the world and controls the body. Simply stated, adjusting the spine actually changes the way the brain functions.
Wow! That is powerful stuff!
Morpheus, from the Matrix, said, "What is real? How do you define real? If you are talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste or see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain."
If you are experiencing glitches in your system, consider re-booting your nervous system with a chiropractic spinal adjustment.
