Is Your Nervous System Disorganized?

When you are healthy, your nervous
system will function in a predictable
manner. Nervous system function can
be observed by testing muscle strength
using applied kinesiology. During
movement it is correct for some
muscles to be strong (facilitated) and
others to be weak (inhibited). For
instance, when you flex your elbow,
your biceps muscle should be strong/
facilitated and the muscle that would
normally extend your elbow, your triceps
muscle, should be inhibited. This
phenomenon is called reciprocal
inhibition and it is essential for your
nervous system to be organized and
your posture and movement to be
efficient and pain free. !
If your nervous system is functioning in
a predictable and organized manner
and in a fashion appropriate to the
environment, it is regulating your
posture, movement, and internal
processes optimally. This is the state of
neurological organization and it is the
goal of applied kinesiology healthcare. !
Neurological Disorganization
Neurological disorganization is present
when your body does not operate in a
predictable and organized manner.
Organs, systems, and structures of the
body are under the nervous system's
control. If the system develops in a
disorganized manner, or illness or injury
impairs neurological organization,
control is not at an optimal level.
Disease, poor resistance, and health
problems of many kinds may result. !
Neurologic disorganization appears to
result from nerve receptors (afferent
nerves) sending conflicting information
for interpretation by the central nervous
system. Improper afferent stimulation
can be caused by joint subluxations in
the spine and any other joint in the
body. Injuries to ligaments, muscles,
fascia, skin, and many other structures
of the body that do not completely heal
can also result in disorganized
information being sent in to the central
nervous system (brain). !
Inappropriate stimulation to the
chemical (body chemistry) and mental/
emotional sides of the triad of health
can also be responsible for neurological
disorganization. All of these potential
causes of neurological disorganization
can be found and successfully treated
by your doctor using applied
kinesiology. !
Solving Neurological Disorganization
Applied kinesiology muscle testing is
used to observe for normal patterns of
neurological organization, to find
abnormal patterns of nerve/neurological
function, and to determine the causative
factor (structural, chemical, or mental
from the triad of health model), and reexamine
for improved neurological
organization once the indicated therapy
has been applied. !
Therapies could include any of the
methods integrated into applied
kinesiology including spinal or extremity
joint adjusting, craniosacral therapy,
acupuncture therapy, muscle and soft
tissue reflex therapies, clinical nutrition
including dietary recommendations or
supplements, herbal or homeopathic
remedies, and/or emotional reflex or
stress management techniques.
A very common cause of neurological
disorganization is the craniosacral
mechanism/system which includes the
skull, jaw, upper neck, and pelvis. This
problem can often be found by
checking to see if muscles will test
strong (facilitated) during various eye
movements and directions. This has
been documented in many children
with dyslexia (reading disorders). Eye
motion and position are intricately
involved with your posture and sense
of balance through the equilibrium
proprioceptors, which include the eyes
(visual righting reflexes), inner ear
(labyrinthine reflexes), and upper neck
(head-on-neck reflexes). !
Foot dysfunction can cause neurologic
disorganization often as a result of old,
incompletely healed foot and/or ankle
injuries. These hidden residual injuries
send abnormal signals to the central
nervous system (brain) and impair
normal posture and movement
patterns !
Biochemical causes of neurologic
disorganization usually relate to
impaired function of very basic and
essential body chemistries that
influence energy production, protein
metabolism, control of immune
function and/or inflammation, or which
in one way or another influence
neurotransmitter systems. The stress
of exposure to toxic chemicals and/or
environmental or food allergens can
be a cause of neurological
disorganization. !
Mental causes of neurologic
disorganization may be due to
imbalances of body chemistry,
especially those that influence
neurotransmitters, and/or emotional
conditioning that influences how you
respond to your environment and
interaction with people. Applied
kinesiology has methods to address
these potential issues, both directly
and through specific physical and
emotional selfcare. !
Sometimes the cause of neurological
disorganization is not initially found
because you haven’t been tested
under the right conditions. It is
important to determine the conditions
under which a troubling, chronic, and
recurring health problem develops -
does it occur in the morning or in the
evening, when sitting, standing, or
walking, or before or after eating, at
work or at home? These and many
other potential questions help isolate
the possible stressor that may be
causing neurological disorganization. !
When evaluating for hidden causes of
neurologic disorganization we must
consider your life-style, physical
activity, mental processes, and
chemical environment in you live. !
Your AK Doctor Is The Expert
Correction of neurologic
disorganization is important in
obtaining optimal health. It also
improves one's human performance
and is a key factor in your overall
health. Your doctor using applied
kinesiology is an expert in finding and
resolving the cause of neurological
disorganization and optimizing your
health, well-being, and performance.
