The Nervous system has two distinct parts. The central nervous system comprises the brain and the spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system is the network of nerves that connects the brain and the spinal cord to the rest of the body. The brain coordinates the ability to move, touch, smell, hear and see. It allows us to think, decide and control our actions. The brain is in constant communication with the entire nervous system.
When things go wrong
The disorders associated with the nervous system are some of the most frightening problems we face. It is difficult for us to consider memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Stroke is a concern. Problems with the sense organs – such as cataracts – muscular degeneration and hearing loss are also areas of concern as we grow older.
Ten percent of those over 65 years of age and nearly 50 percent of those over 85 years of age have Alzheimer’s disease.
What contributes to things going wrong
Diet and Lifestyle do make a difference. A diet low in B vitamins may affect our “brain health” there are also links between nervous disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases and our increasingly toxic environment.
About 600 000 people suffer a stroke each year.
To maintain Neuro System Health
Live the healthy Cell Concept. The B vitamins are known as “brain” vitamins and supplements such as choline, phosphatidylserine and gingko bilioba are known to support memory. Herbs such as chamomile, passionflower, and valerian support maintenance of a balanced demeanor.
Twenty-eight percent of stroke victims are under 65 years of age
