miraculous brain is surrounded and protected by your skull. Your
skull is composed of 29 small, moveable bones. The bones move against
each other along sutures or a type of joint. These bones move as you
breathe. As they move, they pump your cerebral spinal fluid (CSF)
through and around your brain and spinal cord. The circulation of
CSF throughout your brain and spinal cord is absolutely essential to
is created in the brain and supplied to the nervous system through the
gentle pulsing action of three pumps. The first pump is located in the
skull at the source of the supply, the second is located at the juncture
of the skull (occiput) and the neck and the third pump is located at
the pelvis (sacrum).
CSF is produced in the brain and is pumped from the brain down the spinal
cord, around the spinal cord and brain and is then reabsorbed.
sac-like membrane (the dural membrane) covers the brain and spinal cord.
This membrane is full of CSF and it immerses the brain and the spinal
cord in CSF. This CSF acts as a cushion protecting this important but
delicate neural mechanism. CSF also provides nourishment; it acts as
a hormonal carrier; it removes waste material and it provides an ideal
medium for nerve energy conduction.
basis or keystone of the human structure is the pelvis. The pelvis supports
the spine and skull, the shoulders and arms and, below the pelvis, the
legs and feet. The internal organs are suspended by ligaments that attach
to the spine and pelvis. The large upper thigh and important back muscles,
including those responsible for neck and shoulder stability, are all
attached to the pelvis. All of these structures must be balanced, coordinated
and maintained by a stable pelvis in order to produce normal nerve action.
is a minute regular pulsing rhythmic motion between the occiput and
the sacrum that circulates the CSF around the brain and spinal cord
and throughout the nervous system.
sacral pump is the circulatory system of the brain and spinal cord and
its function is paramount to normal health. This pulsing motion takes
place every four seconds.
chiropractic adjustment favorably affects your blood pressure, your
cerebral spinal fluid, and your respiration. Your cerebral spinal
fluid pressure varies directly with your blood pressure and it changes
according to your heart rate and respiration. In addition, your
cerebral spinal fluid carries secretions from your pituitary gland.
Your pituitary gland is considered the master gland of your entire endocrine
system. It is the conductor of your entire endocrine orchestra.
youth, the body may be free of symptoms. When we are young, we can
virtually get away with anything! As the stresses and toxicity of
life accumulate, that natural tolerance (resistance) becomes less and
less. The body's ability to compensate and adapt becomes less and less.
Finally, a stage is reached where the body can no longer adapt and
compensate. That place of minimum tolerance is reached and symptoms
and illness begin to arise. This state often arises because we have
reached a low level state of malnutrition.

The minute pulses between the occiput and the sacrum will become irregular
and change the free flow of CSF. This creates a pressure change in the
CSF, which in turn creates increased toxicity, a loss of nutrition,
low grade hormonal problems, and a breakdown of essential nerve energy
your sacrum becomes imbalanced, it can create an imbalance in the skull
and visa versa. This can interfere with the flow of CSF. And
because your brain runs your body, problems can be created almost anywhere
in your body if any of the bones of your skull shift or move out
of place. Headaches, hearing or visual problems, neck pain, digestive
disorders or allergies can all be the result of cranial dysfunction
or cranial misalignments.
bones of your skull can jam or move out of place from many things: birth
trauma, that fall you took when you were two, dental work, postural
habits, even from contact with something that your brain views as toxic
to the body.
I will gently manipulate the sutures of the skull to ease the pressure
and increase the mobility of the cranial bones.
removing stress between the cranial bones, the sutural motion normalizes
the relationship of one bone to another. This allows for remodeling
of the entire craniosacral system and enhances its function and improves
its capacity for adaptation.
is often complimented with specific exercises and dietary recommendations
to assist in improving the function of your brain, your cerebral spinal
fluid flow, your spine, your body, your organ and cellular systems,
as well as your entire nervous system.
depending on the situation, the symptoms or the type of trauma, I will
do NCR or a series of ENCR adjustments.
