2013 - The Neck Connection in Brain Function for Health and vitality
Using the subconscious brain we live, emote, reproduce, digest, protect ourselves, heal and regulate all our bodily functions. We also react to external stimuli, sleep, and wake, make love, coordinate, stand, carry out skills, eat, and maintain homoeostasis (constant body temperature, maintenance and blood parameters). All of these, and more, use the subconscious brain. The basic logic is that the conscious brain appeared much later in the evolution of the brain and is therefore present in mammals. So in human evolution, the conscious brain appeared originally in mammals. On the other hand reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish and insects still only have the involuntary or automatic brain functioning on its own without a conscious command.
The two parts of the brain have developed in humans in two separate circulatory networks. In strict principle the Carotid Arteries supply blood predominantly to the cortex or the conscious brain, while The Vertebral Arteries, embedded deep inside the neck column, feeds the autonomous or subconscious brain, the most vital and important part of the central nervous system. Neck traumas, stress, birth injuries, excessive use of computer etc. tighten the neck and impair the blood flow to the subconscious brain, affecting physiological, emotional, and hormonal and some neurological functions of the brain. This leads to my discovery and hypothesis that the uncontrollable part of the involuntary brain can be controlled and influenced to function more efficiently by improving the blood supply to it.
Improving blood flow by our massage-manipulative technique on the neck and the base of the skull, the autonomic brain and hormonal control centres, get invigorated. This has a deep impact on the functions of the entire body and the mind. Thus functions like dizziness, imbalance, lack of energy, insomnia, short-term memory loss, lack of concentration, comprehension, anxiety etc which are very common amongst the elderly, can ne noticeably improved with this technique. Special breathing technique used in advance yoga, slows the respiratory rate to 3-4 cycles per minute, causing mild hypercapnia which in turn leads to better or effective exchange of gases in the lung tissue. The result is that the blood receives more oxygen and there brain gets invigorated.
For centuries, it was an accepted belief, especially in India, that one needs to meditate, sublimate, eat vegetarian food, control thoughts and relate them to the subconscious brain. After years of perseverance devotees were able to slow down their breathing and heart rate. They were able to go into a "near death" state of "suspended animation” or deep hibernation, influence healing, even cure diseases. Dr Ali’s technique thus illustrates how to influence one’s well-being, health, brain and bodily functions are simply by improving blood flow to the very part of the brain that regulates all these.
