COMMON AILMENTS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

Cerebral Palsy


Cerebral palsy is one of the common cripplers of children. It is caused by damage to the brain of a newborn baby during birth. Lack of oxygen or injury usually causes the brain damage. The damage affects the child’s ability to use and control muscles. The typical victim of cerebral palsy may have trouble walking, speaking, and using his/her hands.



People afflicted with this disease have normal intelligence. They can be trained in clinics and special classes.

Infantile Paralysis


The common viral disease that attacks the nervous system is poliomyelitis or infantile paralysis. This is a disease affecting the gray matter of the spinal cord. It starts with fever, headaches, sore throat, and stomach upset. This may result in paralysis, which is most common in the lower limbs.

Tumors


Tumors sometimes develop in the brain. The majority of the brain tumors can be operated on if they are diagnosed early enough and they have no serious after-effects. However, if the growth results in the destruction of some nerve tissues, the damage may not be repaired.

Cerebral Thrombosis

This is the clotting of blood in a blood vessel of the brain which may cause stroke or a sudden loss of consciousness, followed by paralysis. This kind of disease is common after middle age.

Amnesia

Amnesia is a state of mind wherein months or years of memories suddenly vanish. There are two types of amnesia: organic and functional. Organic amnesia is caused by damage to the brain brought about by head injuries, severe illness, senility (old age), concussions or violent blows, alcoholism, and stroke. Functional amnesia is caused by trauma (shocking event or horrifying scene) or stress. Generally, organic amnesia lasts longer than functional amnesia.

The return of memory, assisted by complete rest by a patient and by attempts to establish associations with the past in the patient’s mind, can help in the return of memory.

How to Promote and Maintain a Healthy Nervous System

1. Ensure optimal nutritional support for your nervous system.

Your brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves are coated with a layer of fat, called myelin, which provides insulation to your nervous system. When myelin is not properly maintained or is eroded by autoimmune illness, you are bound to experience any number of symptoms of nerve dysfunction, common ones being muscle weakness, inexplicable chronic pain, and diminished vision.

Action Step: Ensure adequate intake of healthy fats, and ensure adequate vitamin D and vitamin B12 status. All are essential to maintaining optimal myelin and nervous system health.

In looking to make sure that your body's needs for vitamins D and B12 are met, be sure to understand the differences between synthetic and natural vitamins.

2. Exercise your nervous system on a daily basis.

As explained earlier, the simple act of writing requires that you use all major components of your conscious motor and sensory pathways; a number of different sensory receptors, peripheral nerves, synaptic connections within your spinal cord, major tracts within your spinal cord, and nerve tissue throughout your brain need to be utilized with great precision and coordination to produce neatly written words.

Action Step: One of the best ways of keeping your nervous system fine tuned is to spend a minimum of 15 minutes per day writing on paper as neatly as you can.

Writing with pen on paper is far more effective at exercising your nervous system than writing with a keyboard on a computer, as typing on a keyboard doesn't require as much fine motor control as writing on paper.

An alternative to writing on paper is to draw on paper, as drawing with precision also requires intensive use of all of the major components of your conscious motor and sensory apparatuses.
