Disorder Name : Nervous System Disorders


The Nervous System is divided into: The Central Nervous System and the Peripheral Nervous System. The central nervous system is divided into two parts: the brain and the spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system is divided into two major parts: the somatic nervous system and the autonomic nervous system. The somatic nervous system consists of peripheral nerve fibers that send sensory information to the central nervous system and motor nerve fibers that project to skeletal muscle. The autonomic nervous system controls smooth muscle of the viscera (internal organs) and glands.

The Brain is the most complex organ in the human body. It is involved in everything you do. How you think, how you feel, how you act, and even how you interact with others. Your brain even affects the kind of person you are, including the kind of parent, child, sibling, friend, student and employee you are. When your brain works right, you can work right; and when your brain doesn?t work right it is very hard for you to be your best. It weighs about 1.3 to 1.4 Kg (or 2% of body weight) and consumes about 20-30% of the body?s energy (this means it uses about 20-30% of the calories you eat). There are about 100 billion neurons in the brain and each neuron or nerve cell is connected to other nerve cells in the brain, by sometimes hundreds or even thousands of connections, called dendrites. It is estimated that there are over 1,000,000,000,000,000 connections in brain, more connections than there are stars in universe. The spinal cord is about 43 cm long in adult women and 45 cm long in adult men and weighs about 35-40 grams. The vertebral column, the collection of bones (back bone) that houses the spinal cord, is about 70 cm long. Therefore, the spinal cord is much shorter than the vertebral column.

Nervous system disorders comprise of several symptoms and disorders like dementia, delirium, epilepsy, headache, meningitis, migraine, vertigo, anxiety, stress, depression, cerebral atony, motor neurone disease, paralysis, chorea, multiple sclerosis, melancholia, sciatica, parkinson?s disease, insomnia, amnesia, fatigue, and neuralgia.

In modern system of medicine, the drugs often used in the treatment are sedatives, anxiolytics, corticosteroids, hypnotics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, antimanics, analgesics, antidepressants and stimulants.

These drugs are effective but have a number of side effects like stiffness, weight-gain, blurred vision, heart-burn, stomach pain, slowed thinking, etc. In chronic cases, the treatment is obviously prolonged. The herbal system has a number of medicines that not only provide symptomatic relief but attacks the root cause without any known side effects. Dehlvi Naturals has many useful preparations to treat nervous system disorders.
