New York Times published an article detailing research being done by dozens of teams to create an implantable device that changes the function of the nervous system. The story explains that electrical impulses will be delivered from a device throughout the body to exert influence over many functions. The electrical impulses will replace the use of certain treatments that otherwise utilize pharmaceutical drugs.
GlaxoSmithKline, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, hired dozens of teams to design the device prototype that operates similar to a pacemaker. The device will monitor specific hormones and electrical activity from the body’s organs and deliver a precise electrical impulse that seeks to change the function of the organs and body. Instead of using drugs to treat problems, the solutions will be sought and delivered through the nervous system. This new wave of research medicine has become known as bioelectronic medicine. Experts believe they will eventually create an on/off switch for specific genes based on their desirability. This new information and research on the nervous system shines an interesting light on the importance of caring for the spine.
The spine houses the spinal cord, also known as the electrical conduit for all function in the body. The good news begins with understanding that the body enters this world pre-programmed and fully capable to heal through the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments remove interference from the nervous system to ensure better communication from the brain.
Ground-breaking research in 2017 revealed the profound influence a chiropractic adjustment has on brain function, nervous system control, and whole-body health. Using a sophisticated PET scan, researchers measured brain and nervous system activity before and after a chiropractic adjustment. The findings revealed that every aspect of brain function improved in the people who were adjusted.
