Imbalances in the sacrum negatively influence the autonomic nervous system, causing stress. Remember, we sit all day today, and our ancestors did not!! Cranial bones and sutures. Your head of course! Your head has 22 bones in it, held together by joints called sutures. They all move when pushed, struck or fall. Sometimes, they don’t go back to where they should be, and stay out of place for long times. Since all nerves originate in brain, then it’s clear that problems with skull bone positioning or sutural sticking can negatively influence the entire body’s nervous systems, with the sympathetic winning again!! Ask any Osteopath how important Sutherland theories were. Strong connection with jaw. Jaw and the TMJ Sitting on top of the spine, the jaw is moved by 2 of the strongest muscles in the body and used constantly during the day. When we feel stressed, we “clench our teeth”. Misalignment or imbalances of either teeth or jaw can strongly influence the nervous system for long periods of time. Remember, optic and facial nerve originate just above jaw! Emotional Blockages (Limbic System) Past emotional traumas get locked up in muscles, fascia and organs. Even in acupuncture, each organ has an associated emotion. To ignore the relationship between emotions and the autonomic nervous system is unwise. How you feel or act after bad news, or when bad things happen to you, your body records it. This in turn, negatively influences the nervous system, creating more imbalance. Ask any soldier or cancer survivor how emotions can affect health, it’s all controlled by the nervous systems.
