The Autonomic Nervous System: The Regulatory Structure of The Body

Symptoms of Friedrich’s Ataxia

Friedreich’s Ataxia is caused by an abnormality in one of the genes called X25. This gene is located in the ninth chromosome pair. This occurs when there is a lack of a protein called fataxin in the tissues. This lack of protein causes a degeneration of the nerve cells within the tissues of the spinal cord and its brain connections, the heart and the pancreas.

Health News: Life on The Cutting Edge – Groundbreaking Stem Cell Research Into Lou Gehrig’s Disease

(BPT) – On July 4, 1939, Lou Gehrig said goodbye to the crowd at Yankee Stadium: "Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth." The bad break he referred to was his career-ending diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known today as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Seventy-five years later, researchers studying ALS are using cutting-edge stem cell science to develop treatments and, one day, a cure.

Allergy Season and Your Neck

You may be wondering what the spine would have to do with allergy season? A lot, in fact! We know that the brain is the master control center of our entire body… it controls every organ, tissue, muscle, and cell. The system by which the brain communicates with everything else is called the Nervous System, which is housed inside the spine. When the brain wants to send a message to our sinuses, that message exits the brain, travels down the spinal cord which is housed inside the spine, and exits the delicate nerves of the neck. So, when the spine is out of alignment, our brain cannot communicate at 100% with the rest of the body.

Identifying a Recipient Nervous System Key to The Prevention of Epilepsy

Scientists Medical Center Duke University have identified a receptor in the nervous system may be the key to preventing epilepsy after an extended period of convulsions. The findings of the studies in mice, published in the online edition of Thursday of Neuron constitute a molecular target for development of drugs to prevent the onset of epilepsy, not only to control symptoms of the disease.

Rheumatic Hearth Disease and Bacterial Infection

Heart is life. A healthy heart is a healthy life. Once the performance of the heart falters, it weakens the foundation and the normal beating of the heart is affected. There are four chambers in the heart any failure of one will affect the other. If the heart muscle weakens due bacterial infection there will be poor pumping of the blood for the heart to deliver. There is risk damaging the heart by bacterial infection that causes the rheumatic fever. Any sign of minor infection should be given immediate attention to save the heart from destruction.
