Chiropractic care is often thought about as only a means to treat back pain but when many do not know is that chiropractic care exceeds far beyond that as its central focus is the central nervous system. By focusing on the central nervous system and correcting dysfunctions there, the overall health of the patient can drastically increase. The brain is what controls the central nervous system and as many know, the brain is a complex as well as intriguing.
Your Brain Stops You from Acting out Your Dreams
The brain is a strong force and so strong that it has the ability to stop you from acting out your dreams. Have you ever dreamed you were running down the street being chased by something and then woke up expecting to be standing in the middle of the street but instead were tucked safely in your bed? You have your brain to thank for controlling that.
It may feel as if your body was moving even as if your eyes were moving as well following objects in your dreams but reality is the brain has control over the eyes as well as your breathing and throughout the whole dream cycle you are immobilized in your bed.
Some dreams may be confusing and leave you wondering why you thought that but studies have shown that dreams are had to help form memories.
Researchers have discovered that dreams are the brain’s way of integrating, processing, and understanding new information. They’re a sign that the sleeping brain is working to commit information to memory on multiple levels. Osmosis may not work entirely, however the information you retain throughout the day may show up in your dreams and that just shows that your memory is working properly.
The brain is always busy, whether you are relaxing by the pool or trying to solve Pythagorean theorems, it’s always using 20 percent of the body’s energy. The brain needs to say active so make sure it’s being fed and worked properly.
Calm Is Good for the Brain
It seems like everyone is talking about it nowadays but how important is it? Meditation is important for your overall health as it increases brain matter which in turn focuses on memory. By learning to relax and practice mindful meditation, the body’s physical and mental health will improve.
