A  human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which he has obtained liberation from the Self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.  (Albert Einstein, 1954)
 May one accept the concepts, from reading the previous material, that one's brain is extremely malleable in its relationships to the environment around it -- by possessing phenomenal capacities to internalize and process exorbitant amounts of input/stress and yet being able to reorganize to higher levels of processing capabilities? If this supposition is true, then why are mental/emotional, physical, and chemical dysfunctions so prevalent within our species?? (Did you know that the decision to make the first contact with a caregiver, such as a BGI chiropractor, requesting an appointment, is an indication that the  second stage of healing is taking place?)   Our human brain, acting as an open system, is interacting with our  environments 24 hours per day. Its routine assimilation of billions of stimuli is processed, categorized, and prioritized to maintain optimal function of each of our organ systems --  monitoring and  managing all  information to help maintain our overall survival. Our brain functions in an  automatic mode, and how it  responds is dependent completely upon preconditioned programming -- from billions of years of atomic and cellular specialization and  from a life-time of conscious and subconscious learned neurological patterns.  (Did you know that even though in educational settings, we are taught that the nervous, immune, and glandular (endocrine) systems are separate entities, in actuality they are of the same system? -- This study is called  neuroimmunoendocrinology.  )  I sense that the BGI care that we provide offers an opportunity for growth and change without the need to naturally elevate the levels of internal distress to a point of  collapse or melt-down (How many people will experience nervous breakdowns or heart attacks, prior to reorganization?), as may be found in the general public outside of a BGI practice.  BGI contacts act as mini-inputs into areas of the spine that are physically associated with the  meningeal system, stimulating the brain to re-evaluate its  physical tensions in relationship to these areas of contact. BioGeometric Integration contacts are highly  specific, both in locations and intensity of pressures. I begin to wonder if by utilizing such care that it produces two types of possible change: Frequently, we speak in terms that our adjustments help the body to  look inward, recognize and resolve old patterns of mechanical cord tension, analogous possibly to "pealing the layers of an onion". But, how? Or is it possible that due to the specificity of each contact, relative to location, pressure, and protocol that these moments of elevated tension lead to mini-"melt-downs", dissipation of localized brain entropy and reorganization of cellular functions, followed by the brains natural dissipation of  spinal cord mechanical cord tension?? As part of  monitoring of the presence of cord tensions within our practice members' spines, certain features are sought: Spinal/postural  distortions Tensions or energetic tracks perceived within the legs, hips, ankles, and spine Local or generalized muscular tension Areas of local or generalized  facilitation or lack of tone (called disconnects) As the adjustments progress, it is amazing how these tensions dissolve, as does the spinal mechanical tension. Research shows that "non"-entrained electromagnetic wavelengths cancel each other out and create a lower energy state. Our protocol of adjusting not only allows the nervous system to look inward (our process of Introspection) and to detect areas of resistance, it also creates an environment in which the brain learns to respond differently from its past experience. The brainwaves become more entrained with each other; with improved potential toward change.  Indications of new learning skills through accessing deeper areas of the brain and spinal cord that one might sense during the progressive weeks of care include: changes in breath (called respiratory waves) body motions   (of large and small muscle groups - call somato/body - psychic/mind waves) vocalizations emotional releases, coughing sensing changes in the surrounds of the physical body and also from inside hearing sounds visions experiencing smells and tastes sensing changes in the connection of the mind and the body The electrical frequencies produced by our brains influence our mental states, providing the appropriate foundation for the content of our minds and ultimately its expression into our bodies. In simpler terms,  our intent and purpose as BioGeometric chiropractors is to assist the MindBody in releasing of the "old"; making room for the "new".  
Prevalence of so much suffering in our culture:  Might it be a result that so much effort is expended to prevent patients from experiencing their symptoms and conditions that they are not able to reach a stage of reorganization and new growth, along with new insights for further needs for change? Non-evolutionary behaviors only make the process more painful, which is what we initially were attempting avoid in the first place.  
Neuroimmunoendocrinology:  Quite a mouth-full! I have found the fact that the nervous and blood systems have common stem cells, and, if the body has a need for more nerve cells, these primitive cells specialize to form the axons and dendrites. if the immune system needs a boost, these premature cells form into white blood cells. Pretty cool, think!  
The Cranial and Spinal Meninges: These are three layers of tissue which nutrify and support the brain and spinal chord. We believe that this innate introspection is directed to the centers of the brain and chord, which control the meninges.
Years ago, I can remember Dr. Donald Epstein referring to the spinal chord as the Brainal chord, since its all made of the same stuff. This is just another instance in which the anatomists dissect us down into little pieces, which are separate from the whole.
The brain develops new skills,...  Along with the production of new cells and their connections that innately are created with the process of learning any new behavior. Thank you, Innate Intelligence! In other words, releasing the old and making way for the new.
Connection Between the Body and the Mind:  Folks will frequently sense that they are mentally awake, however their minds are not aware of the presence of their bodies; some describe these experiences as leaving their bodies.  
Meditation and Entrainment: Did you know that meditation starts an entrainment process by slowing the mental chatter of the mind, from 69,000 thoughts in a day to a  single thought,  Also, 90% of those thoughts are the same as yesterday’s, and the day before, and the day before, and... . Meditation techniques can include a single sound or mantra, a visualization of a flame, a mental recreation of your favorite quiet spot, or even monitoring your breath.  (from the teachings of Deepak Chopra, M.D.).
