Your Nervous System

Your nervous system is the most vital system of your body.

Your nervous system, consisting of your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves, is the most vital system of your body. Its purpose is to coordinate and regulate all the other systems of your body as well as help you adapt to your environment. Just a few of the jobs it looks after, without a conscious thought from you are:

  • Reducing your blood pressure when seated
  • Crosstalk between the pain and immune systems in host defence and disease
  • Increasing your pulse when climbing stairs
  • Reducing your blood pressure when seated
  • Learning to crawl, walk or ride a bicycle
  • Producing pain when touching a hot stove
  • Perspiring to cool you when it’s hot

Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your DNA may determine your height or the colour of your eyes, but your nervous system controls and regulates how your body functions and interacts with the world around you.

If your nervous system were to be impaired, interfered with or compromised so nerve messages to or from your brain were distorted, parts of your body may not work as intended.

That’s why the most significant parts of your nervous system are protected by bone. Your brain is protected by your skull and your spinal cord is covered by the moving bones of your spinal column.

Yet, even with this protection, interferences can happen. Especially along the spinal column. The most common (and overlooked) cause is stress.
