Brain & Nervous System
The nervous system is an amazing and complex network of cells that relay messages from all parts of our body to our brain. Needless to say, when things go awry with your brain and nervous system you can face difficult to treat conditions like epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, cognitive problems and behavioural problems.
There are many environmental factors as well as mainstream drugs that can affect the functioning of your brain and nervous system. For instance, the anti-anxiety drug Xanax has recently been linked to irreversible dementia and the Internet and all the technological advances of the past decade have been shown to affect our deep-brain thinking (losing the ability to transfer knowledge from short-term “working” memory to long-term memory). The Daily Health explores all these dangerous and offers alternative measures that will help you protect this very important and delicate system.
