The combined effects of pressure on the Brain Stem by having the Atlas Vertebra out of place and on


The combined effects of pressure on the Brain Stem by having the Atlas Vertebra out of place and on the Central Nervous System by having vertebras misaligned.


1. The Organs.

When the Atlas Vertebra is pushed into it new position because the skull is being pulled back and down, the pressure it places on the Vagus Nerve and on the Central Nervous System (which travels out into the Autonomic system) affects the organs normal function. If this disruption of the electrical impulses is constant, the organ begins working harder to do its normal functions. As the organ works harder it will start to show unusual symptoms as if it’s trying to protect itself from viral attacks or it will have a break down in its functions.

The digestive organs dry up and stop absorbing food. This will cause the spleen to work even harder and then blood sugar levels will start to fluctuate in the body, causing extreme tiredness plus blood pressure problems.

The heartbeat can rise and fall without any excursion on your part.

The lungs can become constricted and the bronchial tubes can produce too much spittle, all this can cause you to breathe harder and also reduce oxygen getting into the blood stream, this will also cause tiredness.

The liver and the gall bladder will produce excessive bile that will drain into the stomach and make you not want to eat. Not eating will reduce the nourishment getting into body. This again will produce tiredness.

The large intestine will lose its ‘oil’ so passing a stool is extremely hard.

The pincher muscle to the bladder will relax and you will feel like you have to urinate constantly.

The pressure in the spine, caused by the spine being totally out of alignment, will disrupt the Central Nervous System and this will cause mild pain to radiate along the spine resulting in the need to constantly move to alleviate this pain, what we see as a result is restfulness in the person.


2. Blood Circulation.

The effects of a dry stomach with poor absorption will start to dehydrate the other organs, placing another stress into the body plus causing more tiredness. If the body cannot get nourishment into its system, this will stop the body from making more blood, after the circulating blood is used up. This will affect the amount of blood circulating in the body and causes high blood pressure problems. This will make the heart work even harder, it is already stressed because of the pressure on the Central Nervous System and the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems and the Vagus Nerve. When this happens the body reduces the amount of blood reaching the outer extremities (arms and legs) this causes your hands and feet to feel cold. The body does this so the organs can get that extra blood its saving. The Vertebral Artery, this is the artery that pass through the number 7,6, 5, 4, 3, 2 Cervical Vertebrae (the neck vertebras) and then over the Atlas Vertebra, feeds blood to the mid and rear section of the brain. It also supplies blood to the muscles, skin and hair of the head. When the Atlas Vertebra is moved out of position because the skull is being pulled, back and down, it stretches and narrows the Vertebral Artery reducing the blood flow in and out of the head. This causes a swelling pressure feeling inside the head; vision problems, short-term memory problems, constant thinking and the hair will appear to fall out.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, if the blood level in the head is reduced, you will get;

  1. “Crazy monkey mind” – your mind will not stay on one thought long before it jumps to another, just like a crazy monkey always moving around. Your mind will not stop thinking; the effects of this, is you find it hard to go to sleep and to concentrate.

  2. Your short-term memory will not remember what you just did – Put your purse or wallet down and forget where you put it, ten minutes later.

  3. Your hair will try and save itself by snapping off at root level – this is because its not getting enough nourishment due to the lack of blood. When you look at the scalp you should see what looks like little black dots, these are the roots of hairs that have survived because the body of the hair has been detached so the root can get more nourishment. If blood supply is returned to normal, the hair will begin to grow again.


3. The Hearing.

When the Atlas Vertebra ends up in its new position, which is up under the ear, it will push the middle ear out of position, affecting the eardrum and the position of the 3 small bones in the ear; the hammer, anvil and stirrup. Now when sound travels down the ear canal and into the ‘squeezed out of shape’ middle ear section, the sound waves are being distorted.

The Auditory Nerve is possibly being squeezed as well at this point, causing pain when in a noisy environment. If the Auditory Nerve, which is part of the Cranial Nerve 8, is being squeezed at the Brain Stem then it will not function correctly and will not carry electrical impulses correctly to the brain.


4. The Muscles and Ligaments.

When the nerves to the muscles are disrupted, the muscle will contract in on itself, reducing the blood flow through the muscle, this will cause the muscle to dry out and tighten even more. All this will cause the muscles in the extremities to reduce in size and become weak.

Now that the muscles are not moving correctly, it is not rubbing “oil” into the surrounding ligaments. This causes the ligament to dry and contract, tightening the joints related to those ligaments, this would cause pain in the joint.


5. The Eyesight.

When the head is pulled back and down and the Brain Stem is put under pressure. The Cranial Nerve 3 – Oculomotor Nerve is affected; this nerve controls the opening and closing of the pupil. The auto reflux of the pupil either stops or slows down, allowing too much light to reach the Optic Nerve. This will then cause pain in the eyes.


6. The Digestion.

The stomach reaction to pressure on the Vagus Nerve and Central Nervous System is to tighten and dry. This stops the stomach from digesting food. The undigested food is passed into the small intestine, which cannot break down raw food, this food is then passed into the large intestine. When the person goes to pass a stool, they can see undigested food in the stool. When food is not being digested in the stomach and the small intestine, the spleen is not getting any nourishment. This will effect the blood sugar levels and the person may become anaemic.


7. The Strength/ Energy of the body.

Having pressure on the Vagus Nerve and on the Central Nervous System is reducing the impulses from the brain. You are disrupting the organs from two of the most import nerves that help the organs to function correctly. This appears to cause the organs to start working harder. With your organs working harder, the energy of your body is being diverted to the organs not out through the body. This will make you tired and feel as if you do not have the strength to do anything.

You have put yourself into a tight little circle, which is causing you to make your body feel weaker.

  1. The stomach is not function correctly, its not breaking down the food, so the essence of the food is not being used to produce blood. Lack of blood will make you feel tired.

  2. Small Intestine is not absorbing food passed down from the stomach. It is also not passing the food essence up to the spleen to be mixed with your blood and transported out to the other organs of your body.

  3. The heart is working hard because of the disruption to the Nervous System plus with the lack of volume of blood in the body it has to work even harder to push the blood around. In Traditional Chinese Medicine a heart that is beating faster will deprive you of a good nights sleep, by making you think too much, you become restless. Disrupted sleep pattern will also make you very tired.

  4. The lungs are restricted by the Nervous System. They are not expanding for a full inhalation of breath. So not enough oxygen is getting into the body. This will also make you tired.

  5. The liver is working harder. This will also draw in a lot of energy from the body. This will make you feel tired. It will also cause the gallbladder to continually fill the stomach up with bile. This will make you feel not hungry, thus depriving your body of nourishment, this will make you feel tired and weak.


8. Emotions.

In Tradition Chinese Medicine the five Yin organs of the body are responsible for the seven basic emotions.

The lungs are responsible for the emotion of sadness/ grief. The kidneys are responsible for the emotion of fear/ insecurity. The liver is responsible for the emotion of anger/ frustration. The heart is responsible for the emotion of happiness/ despair. The spleen is responsible for the emotion of pensiveness/ worry/ over thinking.

When an organ is working either too hard or too slow the emotion attached to that organ will show itself. In M.E./ C.F.S. suffers the emotions have a tendency to rise for no reason and then subside. In Traditional Chinese Medicine when emotions occur without reason, they are called “empty” emotions, meaning you have no reason for that particular emotion. In Traditional Chinese Medicine if the body pressure is strongest on the left side of the head, then sadness and unhappiness will show itself for no reason. The left hand Vagus Nerve is attached to the lungs and heart. If this pressure is greater on the right hand side anger will show itself for no reason. The right side Vagus Nerve is connected to the liver and the rest of the organs except the left kidney. If the pressure is strong on both sides of the head then all the emotions will show themselves, this is seen in long term suffer of M.E./ C.F.S.
