You might look in the mirror to take a look at yourself, but the real you is hidden from view. It is safely tucked away inside your head and spinal column running the show in the background.
You are your nervous system! Without your brain, spinal cord, nerves, ganglia, and sensory organs, life as we know it would be pretty meaningless.
Your brain is the most complex thing that we know of in the entire universe!
Your brain is made up of billions of neurons, it creates your reality and organizes the trillions of cells every second of your life.
In order for your brain to make sense of the world and communicate effectively with your body it has an extension that is called the spinal cord.
Your spinal cord is similarly complex and conducts billions of signals a second between the brain and the body.
The brain and spinal cord are incredibly adaptable and can respond effectively to a wide variety of situations.
If there is interference between the brain and the body then it is impossible for your health and quality of life to be their best.
You are the lucky owner of the most fantastic and incredible thing known to modern science.
Your central nervous system is always on the job making sure you can live life to the fullest.
Make sure that you take good care of your nervous system and you will be rewarded generously by reduced health challenges and an increased quality of life.
