As a subset of the Multiple Sclerosis community, there is a very large segment of people with MS that live in Lake Powell, Arizona. This is a gorgeous part of the country with a lot of water in some of the most beautiful canyons in the world. This group of people are very familiar with a couple very common problems they’ve encountered in their lives. They’ve all dealt with anxiety/depression, and in a very short period of time they have learned all about the benefits of sea water.
If you haven’t researched this already, I’d highly recommend checking out an article I did a while back. I’ve done an even better job of explaining why and how this works, and to me it is important enough to talk about here.
When we look at the body, we can look at the electrical signals that go through it, and this includes the nerves in the brain. Let’s say that our brain sends out a signal telling our arm to go up. It sends out an electrical signal, and this electrical signal is sent from the brain to the arm. If you’ve ever watched an electrocution movie, they show where these electrical signals cross, where the electrical signal leaves the brain and goes into the body. This is called the brain stem, and in this case the brain stem is the lowest part of the brain.
How Important They Are
Almost all cells in your body have a membrane that surrounds them. These membranes have an electrical barrier around them that is like a fence around the cells. The brain stem is the body’s most important electrical gate that guards the most sensitive parts of the body, and it is guarded by the largest number of cells. If you’ve ever tried to take a cell away from the body, it becomes easy to understand how dangerous the brain stem is. In fact, if you’ve ever felt a headache, it could be the result of having a large portion of the brain stem removed.
Why We Need To Stay Within The Electrical Barrier
The brain stem is the lowest level of the brain and it is located right underneath the skull. There are a few areas of the brain stem that are particularly important and these are the medulla oblongata, the midbrain, and the pons. These areas are really the gatekeepers of the brain. If you think about how cells work, they require energy to operate. They need oxygen and a good supply of blood to operate properly, and this means that the cells must be in an area that is protected by the skull and the other parts of the body.
