Nervous System

The nervous system is a vast network of specialized cells that collects information about your surroundings and seamlessly generates voluntary and involuntary responses to these external stimuli. Nerve cells throughout the body gather sensory information and transmit these signals to the spinal cord and brain. This information is passed along nerve fibers by electrical impulses and chemicals known as neurotransmitters.

The brain is a remarkably complex organ involved in a wide range of body mechanisms. On one hand, the brain is heavily involved in coordinating involuntary body processes like digestion, respiration, cardiovascular function, and body temperature. In contrast, the brain is also capable of voluntary action, such as coordinating the signals to your muscles and joints to make running, chewing, talking, and dancing possible. Cognition, emotion, problem-solving, and other higher level thinking processes also take place in the brain.

Due to the nervous system’s extensive involvement in healthy physiological and mental function, it’s important to be aware of habits and practices that support the function of the nervous system. An integrative health approach that includes exercise, a balanced diet, adequate sleep, and regimented essential oil use can provide the necessary foundation to nurture mental health and overall function of the nervous system.
