Nervous System 101

The nervous system in your body is made up of two parts: the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.

The brain and the spinal cord make up the central nervous system. The spinal cord transmits sensory messages to the brain and motor messages from the brain. Sensory nerves carry messages from receptors to the brain. If you touch a hot stove, pain receptors tell your brain to move your hand. Motor nerves send signals from the brain to the muscles in the body. These nerves help us to do things, like walk, kick a ball or pick up an object

You’ve probably heard the admonition “trust your gut.” Turns out it’s wise advice. If you’ve ever felt butterflies in your stomach, felt a hunch or sensed that the crab cakes were a bit “funky,” you may have heard from your “second brain.” In your gut.

Have you ever vomited?

Then you’ve experienced the wisdom of your enteric nervous system firsthand. You may not have felt well, but the intelligence of your nervous system caused those funky crab cakes to become projectiles, producing the contractions necessary to force them back up your esophagus. A healthy response even though you didn’t feel well.

The enteric nervous system is thought to play a major role in our emotional well–being, too. It connects to the brain, directly affecting feelings of sadness or stress, even influencing memory, learning and decision-making.

Many gastrointestinal disorders such as acid reflux, colitis and irritable bowel syndrome begin with the brain in our gut.

Do you know someone who should be seeing us to better balance their enteric nervous system?
