Steps to Wellness
By Dr. Farzad Farahmand
I’d like to paint a big picture that will help you understand the origin of disease and the steps needed to bring you closer to optimum health & wellbeing.
There are many different systems in the body such as the Digestive, cardiovascular, Genitourinary, musculoskeletal, endocrine, the nervous system and more.
The Nervous System
Above all the systems in the body is the Nervous system which is the master control of all the rest of the systems in the body.
The nervous system is divided into 2 categories:
The Central Nervous System (CNS), which is comprised of the Brain and the spinal cord.
The Peripheral Nervous System (PNS), which is further divided into 2 categories of voluntary and involuntary nervous system, with the involuntary nervous system often referred to as the Autonomic Nervous System or ANS.
The Brain is considered as the power generator of the body and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) is considered as the wring of the body, carrying that power or electrical activity to all the different tissues organs and systems of the body.
Consider an electronic unit such as a computer as an analogy. If in case not enough power is generated in that computer or the power of the battery is diminished, the wires in that unit will not be able to carry the amount of electrical signal needed to run through the wires in order to supply power to the different part of the unit. And imagine what would happen if the electrical current within the wires is further effected by certain pressures on those wires creating loose connections.
The Nervous System is perhaps the most important system in the body. Any disharmony, however minor in the system can cause a variety of physical and emotional health problems. By just addressing the nervous system we can take care of most if not all the minor and major problems in the body, bringing it steps closer to optimum health.
There are 3 major causes whereby the function of the nervous system is altered:
Physical: Physical impacts to the head commonly referred to as Brain concussions or any impact to the body, mainly to the Musculoskeletal System which involves the spine, as a result of accidents.
Even a mild trauma or blow to the head can cause the formation of scar tissue on the Brain over time. Scar tissue can interfere with the normal electrical activity in the Brain and can cause a variety of physical and emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, mood swings, muscle tension and paralysis.
Mild to severe Brain traumas can also cause dysfunction in the Pituitary gland located in the Brain, responsible for the regulation of the endocrine system. This may result in hormonal imbalances effecting the rate of metabolism, heart rate, sexual dysfunctions, menstrual dysfunctions and more.
Stress: Stress can cause a major disturbance in the electrical activity of the Brain. It can also diminish the electrical activity in the Peripheral Nervous System, causing muscle tension.
Stress causes muscles of the body to tense up. Many of the muscles of your back are attached to the spine and when they tense up and get shorter, they can pull on the vertebra and can throw the spine out of alignment. The misaligned vertebra can put pressure on the wires that branch off of the spinal cord and exit the spine to go out to all the tissues, organs and systems in the body, in order to supply the sufficient electrical activity throughout the body.
This can have a severe impact in the proper functioning of the different systems of the body. Both the ones under our voluntary control such as the musculoskeletal system responsible for movement, as well as the systems that are not under our voluntary control such as Digestion and the Cardiovascular System.
Chemical: Improper absorption of nutrients from food and elimination of toxins from the body by the Digestive system can cause nutritional deficiencies in the Brain as well as build up of toxins and waste products that can as well affect the electrical activity in the Nervous System. Alcohol, drug abuse and long term use of prescription drugs as well as environmental effects can also have an effect on the proper functioning of the Nervous System.
The Digestive System
Perhaps the second most important system in the body next to the Nervous System is the Digestive System. Addressing the Digestive system can bring the body further closer to optimum health and well Being.
Having a healthy digestion can be a key factor in having a healthy mind and body. The cells, tissues and organs in our body need to be nourished constantly in order to function and remain healthy. Essential nutrients such as Vitamins, Minerals and Amino Acids need to be properly absorbed by the body from the diet. An insufficient absorption of nutrients during the digestive process can cause a variety of physical, as well as mental problems. Physical complications may include Arthritis, body aches and pains, circulatory problems, low energy and more. Mental disturbances such as depression, anxiety and mood swings can occur as a result of a deficiency in Amino Acids, affecting the level of the Neurotransmitters in the Brain. Brain function can also be affected by the deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals.
Comprehensive System Cleanse
A comprehensive system cleansing of toxins, including a Gallbladder and Liver cleanse together with cleansing the body from Parasites can be extremely effective in prevention of disease. Parasites can live not only in the Digestive System but in all the systems in the body, causing a variety of digestive problems, allergic reactions, skin conditions and more.
Nutrition & Exercise
Proper nutrition and exercise program together with addressing both the Nervous and the Digestive system can bring you within inches away from optimum health and well being. Reaching an ideal weight can have a positive effect on the Cardiovascular System, reducing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and Type II diabetes.
With these steps you can achieve and maintain the ultimate experience of health and well being.
