Neuroplasticity and Your Nervous System
A Functional Medicine Approach to the Nervous System?
“The human nervous system controls, regulates and coordinates all of the functions of the body.” This quote from the anatomy textbook, Grey’s Anatomy, reminds us of the profound importance of having a functional nervous system. Indeed, health and well-being starts with a healthy nervous system.
With a functional and holistic, medicine approach, treatments can help the nervous system overcome dysfunction and repair itself through harnessing neuroplasticity. This term refers to the ability of the brain and spinal cord cells to create new connections with each other, and sometimes new cells altogether.
