A neurological disorder is a disease that involves the central nervous system which includes the brain, spine, and nerves of the body. Neurological disorders can affect the body in many different ways including changes in the ability to walk, think, remember, breathe, swallow, speak, see, learn, and the like. Some disorders affect cognition and behavior more, whereas others have more physical symptoms. Loss of function in these areas can be frightening as well as debilitating.
Often people seek medical attention to find out what can be done about the symptoms they are having. Usually tests are run and medication is prescribed to try to control the symptoms. At LifeWorks Wellness Center we take a different approach to your health. Rather than masking symptoms or trying to minimize them, we seek to find the root cause of the disease and allow the body to heal itself through proper nutrition, various therapies, and knowledge on how to care for the body to reduce stress and other contributing factors.
What Causes Neurological Disorders?
Damage to the brain, spine and central nervous system can be present at birth, or can be acquired. During development in the womb, chromosomal abnormalities, gene abnormalities, metabolic disorders and other factors can be present that inhibit normal development of the fetus. Outside factors can also contribute to damage present at birth including infection, environmental toxins, complications at birth, insufficient nutrition, lack of oxygen to the brain, and other factors.
After birth, human neurological systems can be damaged by autoimmune disorders, exposure to toxins and heavy metals, tumors, chronic stress, malnutrition, infections, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, and other causes. These factors can lead to the development of neurological disorders.
