A Balanced Brain Does a Much Better Job running the body
Brain-Based Care marks the latest treatment of postural balancing, pain syndromes, sleep and fatigue, energy production and vertigo/balance problems.
This approach worksby putting the brain back in charge of controlling the nerve impulses of the sensory and motor malfunctioning that contributes to a host of problems including chronic misalignments/subluxations, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Insomnia, Obesity, Depression, Dizziness, misinterpretation of our surroundings and other brain impairments.
BrainHemisphericity Based Care
Signals from the human body are delivered from the initial receptors of touch, sight, smell, pressure sense, taste, nociception(pain), balance, proprioception(positioning), vibration, magnetism and temperature to the spinal nerve roots and on to the spinal cord where they are delivered to the lower part of the brain called the Cerebellum.
The brain is fed by these important signals and develops its response to the environment based on the information they convey.
The Cerebellum controls all impulses of balance but alsoemotions and thoughts. The signals are transmitted to the Brain Cortex where it provides an increase in the frequency of firing of nerves, which helps keep the brain alive, balanced and healthy. Without this stimulation the brain loses its ability to actively control primal functions regulating everything from breathing to pain regulation.
The Brain Stem regulates the Cranial Nerves, which are responsible for our senses of sight and smell, hearing and balance, facial sensation and control. Cranial Nerve 10 is the Vagus Nerve, also called the Buddha nerve or Wandering nerve, innervates all of our vital organs including Heart, Stomach, Liver, Intestines, Spleen and Adrenals. This important connection makes the upper cervical spine capable of disrupting everything from dizziness to digestion.
When the Cortex receives insufficient input from the Cerebellum it becomes incapable of properly controlling functions. The uncontrolled overactive brain then creates imbalances in Cranial nerve functions which can cause dizziness, inner ear problems and sound distortion, sleep problems, digestion problems including IBS and IBD, heart arrhythmias, systemic pain and fatigue, photophobia (sensitivity to light), as well as many types of sensitivities.
Symptoms of processing problems are apart of communication issues between and within the hemispheres of the brain. This connectivity issue is an imbalance in hemispheric brain communication, which is the root of many learning, health, body, postural, functional and developmental issues.
Dr. Christine Garvey, D.C. combine individually customized sensory-motor and cognitive activities that improve hemispheric brain connectivity. We also address nutritional imbalances to focus on the importance of a healthy diet contributing to optimal brain and body function.
