The Brainstem is the master control center for the entire body. It is responsible forALL of the vital functions essential for health. These include: Respiration, Cardiovascular Function (blood pressure and heart rate), Gastrointestinal Function, Bodily Movements, Equilibrium (balance), Vision, Hearing, Emotions, Behavior, Thoughts and so much more.
The Brainstem transmits nerve impulses over the nervous system to each and every cell in your body. These nerve impulses keep you alive and functioning. If you severed a nerve to your heart, would it stop functioning? How about your stomach, lungs, or kidneys? What if you just had an interference with the normal quantity of nerve force to certain organs and tissues? Would these organs and tissue cells function at their best or would they begin to malfunction?
The Lower Brainstem is located within the top two bones of your spine. These two bones (Atlas and Axis) happen to be the most moveable vertebrae of the entire spine. When one or both of these bones get out of position, it puts pressure on the Brainstem distorting the quality and quantity of mental impulses to and from the cells. You should now have a good idea of how interference at the Brainstem could result in nearly any disease known to man.
“In absence of continuous transmission of nerve signals from the brainstem into the cerebrum, the brain becomes useless.” -Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology, 8th edition
“If subluxations (spinal pressures) are not corrected early ‘when they are caused after birth,’ the subluxation will be more difficult to correct later. Subluxations can reduce nerve impulses by 60%.”-Chung Ha Suh, Ph.D, University of Colorado School of Medicine
Upper Cervical Specific Doctors of Chiropractic are the only healthcare professionals with the training, knowledge, skill, and instrumentation to detect and correct Brainstem interference. These Doctors locate and correct nerve interference at the level of the Brainstem, allowing the body to restore its natural function and heal itself. This is not a treatment for any symptoms or any disease. It is 90% of the time, correction of the cause of abnormal function in the body which is what is necessary to help sick people get well, and well people stay well!
