What if there is a disconnect between the brain and the body? It turns out that many people suffer from real disconnections, mistaken signals, and other problems resulting in both physical and mental illnesses. For some, the problem starts in the brain and creates problems in the body while for others the problem starts in the body and affects the brain. Either way, there is a disruption of normal function.
Your brain’s function, the immune system, and the rest of the body all work together in an intricate dance to keep the body functioning. Even a tiny disruption in the system may throw off your body’s entire balance resulting in uncomfortable physical symptoms, difficulty thinking clearly, depression, and more. Historically, medicine has approached each symptom, whether physical, neurological, or psychological, as individual problems. However, it is likely that the nervous system, endocrine (hormone) system, and immune system are out of balance with one another resulting in the individual symptoms. For most patients, the brain is at the root of it all. Functional neurology and neuroendocrine immunology seek to address all three systems, bringing them into balance and improving brain function to improve overall health and wellbeing. While there are no promises or magical cures, addressing the patient as a whole being, not as a single symptom or a collection of symptoms, may show significant improvement over conventional medical approaches.
While the number of conditions caused, at least in part, by a brain function imbalance is quite large, functional neurology and neuroendocrine immunology may play an important role in helping patients to understand their own brain function and in helping them to heal from chronic illnesses.
