A patient-oriented brochure explaining the importance of healthy nerve signals on the health and activity of the brain.
“Peak brain activity occurs when the brain receives strong and clear nerve signals from our physical senses. This information includes sight, sound, taste, touch and hearing, as well as information from our joints, muscles and organs. About 40x more information travels to the brain from the body than the brain sends to the body. This means that the brain thrives when nerve signals are strong and healthy.
These nerve signals activate the brain and the nerves that they travel along. All nerve cells require activation to remain healthy. Nerve signals need to be sent along nerves in order to keep them useful. This is similar to how exercise keeps muscles healthy and strong. Nerves need activation in order to stay healthy and strong.
