Pressure on the Nervous System and Its Effects.


1. Cranial Nerves and the Brain Stem.

Nine of the most common head complaints M.E / C.F.S. suffers suffer; are headaches, dry eyes, dry mouth, loss of smell, loud noise is disorienting, balance and movement is uncoordinated and light sensitivity in the eyes which cause pain (the constant tired feeling they have, comes more from the Autonomic Nervous system).

When you look at the Cranial Nerves on the Brain Stem the most interesting nerves starting from the top of the stem are:

  • CN.1 – Olfactory Nerve – Transmits the sense of smell to the brain.

  • CN.3 – Oculomotor Nerve – Performs most of the eye movement and controls the muscle that open and closes the pupil of the eye, regulating the mount of light that enters the eye.

  • CN.7 – Facial Nerve – Controls the saliva glands, how much saliva is made and released, as well as the meibomian gland, which keeps the eye surface wet.

  • CN.8 – Vestibulocochlea Nerve – Essential for balance and movement (equilibrium) it also carries the impulse for hearing.

  • CN.10 – Vagus Nerve – Allows a free flow of information to and from the brain to nearly all the thoracic and abdominal organs.

  • CN.11 Accessory Nerve – Controls the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles. Example of damage is the inability to shrug and weak movement of the head.

  • CN.12- Hypoglossal Nerve – Controls the muscles of the tongue and the action of swallowing.

These are the most obvious of all the Cranial Nerves as to why M.E. / C.F.S. sufferers have the problems they complain about. The skull has moved back and down because the muscles of the back have tightened inwards on them selves, pulling the spine out of position. This causes the Atlas Vertebra, which is a floating vertebra (not locked into the Axis Vertebra below it) to be forced out of position. The Brain Stem is twisted or moved out of alignment because of the movement of the skull and the Atlas Vertebra.

The Cranial Nerves 1, 3, 7, 8, 11 and 12 can explain the headaches, dry eyes, dry mouth, loss of smell, loud noises being disorienting, uncoordinated balance and movement and light sensitivity in the eyes causes pain.

CN.10, the Vagus Nerve is the most interesting of all the Cranial Nerves, because of its influence on nearly all the organs in the body (the organ it does not influence is the left kidney). The Vagus Nerve passes over the Atlas before it descends down the throat into the body. The left hand Vagus Nerve travels into the throat, bronchial tubes, lungs and heart. The right hand Vagus Nerve travels into the throat and then onto the rest of the thoracic and abdominal viscera. If the Atlas vertebra is squeezing on the Vagus Nerve, this would disrupt the free flow of electrical impulse to and from the brain to the organs in the Thoracic and Abdominal cavities. This would defiantly have an effect on the function of the organs by making them work harder to do their normal workload. This in turn will make the person feel tired all the time.


2. Pressure on the Central Nervous System and resulting effect in the Autonomic Nervous System (Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems).

This pressure or squeezing of the Central Nervous System at the Brain Stem causes the Central Nervous System to enlarge slightly affecting the electrical impulse traveling along the spinal cord and it is squeezed again as it branches out of the spine between misaligned vertebra’s causing a further disrupting effect to the impulses going to the nerves of Autonomic Nervous System (Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems).

If the impulses from the Central Nervous System are disrupted before they can travel to the Autonomic Nervous System, then the organ that is attached to that particular Autonomic Nerve will not function correctly. The idea is that the organ will physically become firm and have to work harder to do its normal function; it is no longer that soft flexible functioning organ. This firming is not visible to the naked eye nor does Western medicine have a test to determine whether the organ has changed in texture or not. This is a theory that has not been proven or disproved, what has been proven by Western Medicine is this sort of pressure on a nerve can reduce the function of a nerve by 50%.

When this pressure is removed, by realigning the vertebra in question, the health problems in M.E. / C.F.S. sufferers, associated with that organ, disappears.

What you have is the organs of a M.E. / C.F.S. suffer are basically being thrown in to overdrive by the three most important Nervous Systems controlling it; Central Nervous System, the Autonomic Nervous System (Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous System and the Vagus Nerve.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine this disruption of impulses of the “High Qi System” can be seen, when the facial readings in Traditional Chinese Medicine are not confirmed by the 6 Chinese pulses of the wrist. When the pulses of a M.E. / C.F.S. suffers are taken, the only organ the pulses show that is corresponding with the facial reading is the left kidney, the rest of the pulses are “reading” a depleted yin condition this is not what the facial reading is telling; this is theoretically impossible unless the patience is dying. Which as we see with these suffers, they are not. In the kidneys of M.E. / C.F.S. suffers the right kidney pulse is “reading” depleted yin and the left kidney pulse is “reading” normal. Then the problem must be in the Brain Stem Vagus Nerve, because the Vagus Nerve is not attached to the left kidney, but is attached to the right kidney.

So before any treatment of M.E. / C.F.S. suffers can be successful in Traditional Chinese Medicine the “High Qi System” (Central Nervous System) has to be freed, the vertebra’s of the spine have to be realigned so the energy can flow freely from the Sea of Marrow “Brain” to the organs. Freeing up of the “High Qi System” (Central Nervous System) takes away the symptoms of M.E. / C.F.S. and a lot more other problems, that Western Medicine has no treatment for.

(Disclaimer: I am not a Neurologist, but if you would like to look this up on the internet, damage to the cranial nerves and damage to the Autonomic Nervous System (Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems) leading to the organs, you will see that the symptoms fit to the complaints of suffers of M.E. / C.F.S.).
