Chronic Pain and the Nervous System

Chronic Pain and the Nervous System

Pain is one of the most common reasons for people to visit medical and integrative providers. Despite the enormous burden of suffering that is created by chronic pain, it is still poorly understood by western medical science. While research has identified complex changes in the brain, spine and nerves in people with pain, doctors agree that effective treatment remains elusive. 

The pain experience results from a complex interaction between musculoskeletal lesions, biochemical changes and social and behavioral factors. Prior injuries and trauma can create disturbances in fascia and the nervous system that may best be thought of as blockages. These affect the flow of qi in the circuitry of the human body, and are irritable ‘hot spots’ that have a lower threshold for triggering the stress response. Effective vibrational medicine involves identifying the signatures that trigger this response using muscle testing and other methods, and desensitizing the patient using a wide range of tools and techniques. Blockages are a disconnect between nerves and the muscles they supply. These can create spasms in contralateral structures and surrounding tissues, and can lead to symptoms in remote areas of the body through connections in meridians and the complex control systems of the body.

The polyvagal theory: how humans respond to challenges

During these challenging times, it is perhaps helpful to look at how our nervous system has evolved to adapt to challenges and stress.

Psychologist Dr. Stephen Porges provides a theory he has developed regarding the hierarchical nature of our autonomic responses via the vagus nerve complex to challenges and danger.

The Age of Aluminum
The Age of Aluminum

We live in the Age of Aluminum, according to Dr. Chris Exley, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University, Staffordshire. Aluminum is everywhere, every day. It is used in building materials, cars, pots and pans, frozen food containers, cans, utensils and more. It is in drinking water, in our food, medicines and in the air.  Although most aluminum leaves the body, what is not excreted can have long term consequences. What can we do?

The Power of Tapping
The Power of Tapping

Humans have known for long time about the deceptively simple power of poking, pressing or tapping on key body points to achieve changes in the body energy systems.

Although scientific evidence of this network of channels is still lacking, clinical experience suggests that this bio-circuitry is a powerful and important part of the human body, and that kinesiology can be used to access and intervene in this human operating system. It is an exciting field of exploration.
