The Body’s Six Immune Centers – Nervous Center

The brain has a mind of its own, and indeed, this center comprising brain, spinal cord, and complex network of nerves is telecommuni­cations and intelligent design in action. The central nervous system is central to tasting, seeing, thinking, hearing, dreaming, breathing, and feeling pain and pleasure. Thin threads of nerves called neurons are bundled together and carry information back and forth like wires gathered on a telephone pole. Sensory nerves send messages to the brain by way of the spinal cord, and motor nerves carry messages back from the brain to all the muscles and glands.

When a neuron is stimu­lated by heat, cold, touch, or sound vibrations, it generates an electri­cal pulse that travels the length of the neuron and then is carried by chemicals to the next cell, hot-potato style. Plenty of events from the outer and inner environments can interfere with this interplay—and plenty of foods can keep this center strong!
