Nervous system disease

Introduction and description

 

In large multi-cellular organisms like us, the cells needing to respond to the stimuli are often in completely different parts of the body to where the stimulus was detected.  In order to co-ordinate the response to stimuli, a system of communication is used to transmit messages about the stimulus to our command and control centre housed in the brain and from there to send messages back to the cells directing a course of action. 

This communication system is known as the nervous system and it consists of millions of nerve cells which act as the detectors and transmitters of messages. Nerve cells are also known as neurons.  Neurons connect to each other to form networks.

The medical community tend to classify Nervous system diseases into two :

  • Central nervous system disease in the CNS

  • Peripheral neuropathy in the PNS

But this is actually an entirely unhelpful classification, as the causes of these diseases – viruses, bacteria, parasites, toxins and heavy metals, fungi and pharmaceuticals, know no such boundaries and despite the so called blood brain barrier, slip silently through all barriers into the brain stem, brain and spinal cord. With the proposed use of nanoparticles, no doubt the slipping through will become even more prevalent in the future.

The term neuropathy is sometimes defined to include any disorder of the nervous system and it is neuropathy which we need to consider here.

Illnesses and diseases of the nervous system

There are a number of illnesses and diseases that can affect the nervous system.  A  number of  them have been described in detail on the site because so many spiritual experiences appear to be caused by them, these are:

But this section is a catch-all section enabling me to add any other nervous system disease and illness observations.  Illnesses which come within this category include the following [this list is not exhaustive but enables me to provide examples]:

In addition there is also Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS),  a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed as it travels through the wrist at the carpal tunnel and causes pain, numbness and tingling, in the part of the hand that receives sensation from the median nerve.

 

I could go on.  Hundreds of names for diseases and illnesses, which affect the nervous system.  There would be no reason to have all these names if cause based medicine was used, it is only because symptom based medicine is used that a name has to be found for each variation on nerve damage. 

That combination is then used to give you pharmaceuticals. 

If there are say 30 symptoms associated with nerve damage, this means you have 900 possible names.  And for each name there is a drug which does not actually heal, but suppresses that combination of symptoms.  Such is symptom based medicine.

Causes

One of the oft cited causes of nervous system disease in medical literature has been 'stress'.  There is the rather unpleasant implication that through lack of control of your emotions you have brought this on yourself.  But stress is not the cause.  When stressed, the immune system can be compromised and the real causes - listed below - may then be given the chance to pass into the blood stream and if still not checked enter the brain.  So a compromised immune system is a problem, but not the cause.

Pharmaceuticals

 

Literally thousands of drugs cause neuropathy.  A full list can be found on the eHealthme web site using this LINK which lists them.  I have also added some more under the specific diseases in the lists above.  The following case study extract is from this site and is not atypical......

 

... my so called Cardiologist put me on Ranexa. Thank GOD for my Nurse Practioner!! I started having side effects 3 days after being put on this awful drug, saw my Cardio 5 days after and all he had to say was "I have never heard of that before". I was only, LOL "only", having severe pain in my hip down my legs,then I fell a few times because of no balance and ended up having to walk with a cane, only 5 days after being put on Ranexa. Then, my toes started to feel like I had mud squished between them about 2 months into the Neuropathy. Now, 1 year and 2 months later, my legs feel like I have knee socks on sometimes and have been like that for some time along with the squishing mud between my toes. Oh yeah, I have a NEW Cardiologist and a WONDERFUL Personal Injury/Malpractice Attorney too!

Bacterial infection

A whole host of bacteria are implicated in nervous system diseases.  Motor neurone disease, for example, is linked to Clostridium perfringens (formerly known as C. welchii).
The bacteria Coxiella burnetii and Chlamydia pneumoniae are known causes of chronic fatigue syndrome.  Guillain–Barré syndrome is associated with the bacterium Campylobacter jejuni.
Multiple sclerosis is associated with the bacterium Chlamydia pneumoniae.   

Viral infection

A large number of viruses are implicated in nervous system diseasesThe references section gives but a small sample of the papers on Pubmed implicating viruses.  For example [this list is obviously not complete as can be seen from the references]: 

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the most common of five forms of motor neuron disease [see above], is associated with echovirus (an enterovirus) infection of the central nervous system, and with retrovirus activity.
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome is also associated with enteroviruses (such as Coxsackie B virus), human herpesvirus 6 variant A, human herpesvirus and parvovirus B19.
  • Guillain–Barré syndrome is associated with the viruses cytomegalovirus and enterovirus.
  • Multiple sclerosis is associated with Epstein-Barr virus, human herpesvirus, and varicella zoster virus

 

 

Parasites

A vast number of parasites are implicated in neuropathy, the references provide a list of some of the papers on Pubmed on the subject, however, the actual number of papers is in the hundreds.

Fungal infection 

Again there are papers on Pubmed implicating fungi.  See references and the fungal infection section

Vaccines

 

Because vaccines often introduce bacteria and viruses into a person who has not got these viruses and bacteria, there is the risk that in an immunocompromised person or child, that the virus gets a hold and does damage both in the short and long term.  I have provided observations on this and there are more examples in the vaccines section.  It may be worth noting the following.  If you look at the references both Hep B and C can cause nervous system damage.  It thus follows that so can vaccines and this court case involving compensation legally ruled this to be the case

 

Guillain-Barré Syndrome as Vaccine Damage After Hepatitis-B Vaccination. From an article in CO’MED, Volume 20, February 2014 Machine Translation by SYSTRAN, Lernout & Hauspie, LogoMedia & Promt Translation & redaction by: Carolyn L. Winsor, OIRF

 Ruling: The health consequence of Guillain-Barré Syndrome emerging after a Hepatitis-B vaccination is recognized as a vaccination damage and can be compensated.
 This was decided by the Sozialgericht Dortmund [Social Security Tribunal of Dortmund] in the case of a boy from Hamm (Ruling from 23.11.2013, File Number: S 7 VJ 601/09), who had been inoculated at the age of two years by his pediatrician against Hepatitis A and B and as a result suffers Guillain-Barré Syndrome with remaining paralyses in the legs and a foot defect position.
The Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe [Regional Association of Westphalia-Lippe] – LWL Versorgunsamt Wesfalen [Westphalian LWL Pension Office] in Münster rejected the recognition and compensation of a vaccine damage because the causal connection is not likely between the vaccination and the illness in the boy.
 The Social Security Tribunal of Dortmund explained their ruling is affirmed on the basis of hearing medical evidence of the causality of the liability claim between the Hepatitis-B component of the vaccine and the Guillain-Barré Syndrome. It has been realized in medical science that potentially supported vaccination complications exist with very high likelihood.
The competing cause of an influenza infection cited by the defendants is unlikely on the basis of the documented laboratory values.

There is another aspect of vaccines that it is important to know.  Vaccines do not just contain the 'agent' being vaccinated, they also contain an 'adjuvant' and an 'excipient'.  Some of the contents of some excipients have a DNA profile very similar to that of the  myelin that protects the motor system nerves in the human body.  The adjuvant in a vaccine tells the immune system to prepare a robust continuous immune response to the agent, but there is also the excipient contents with the agent.  So it also prepares a robust continuous immune response to the excipient, and later when it realises the nerves look like the contents of the excipient it has been asked to prepare a robust response to, it attacks them to.

So it is no surprise that having been triggered by the adjuvant the immune system goes looking for anything else and lo and behold finds the myelin and attacks it so destroying the nerve system in the body.  Which is why we may get nervous system diseases and many other so called  autoimmune diseases - MS, ME, motor neurone disease, plus a whole host of other nerve related diseases.

 

 

Nutritional deprivation

Both Mineral imbalance and Vitamin imbalance can cause nervous system diseases, where deficiency has one set of causes and overload is usually caused by Mineral supplements and Vitamin supplements .

Physical hurt

Including surgery

Toxins 

I may have placed toxins last on the list, but from the evidence, toxins play a truly major role in causing neuropathy.  Toxins include the heavy metals.  Practically all the toxins listed in the section on toxins on this site have been implicated in neuropathy.  I have provided some paper references from Pubmed, but there are again, numerous papers on this site that cover this subject.

In listing heavy metals we should also not forget the role dental amalgam fillings play in this. 

Within the healing section I have provided a number of case studies of people whose nerve problems were entirely resolved by the removal of their dental amalgam fillings.

Other causes

Sometimes the cause can be beyond even a doctor's imagination

 

DeAngelis, Tracy M.; Shen, Liang (1 October 2009). "Outbreak of Progressive Inflammatory Neuropathy Following Exposure to Aerosolized Porcine Neural Tissue
Progressive inflammatory neuropathy (PIN) is a disease that was identified in a report, released on January 31, 2008, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The first known outbreak of this neuropathy occurred in southeastern Minnesota in the United States. The disease was reported among pig slaughterhouse workers who appeared at various care facilities in the area reporting similar neurological symptoms. The disease was later identified at pork processing plants in Indiana and Nebraska as well. The condition is characterized by acute paralysis, pain, fatigue, numbness, and weakness, especially in extremities. It was believed that workers might have contracted the disease through inhaling aerosols from pig brains blown through a compressed-air hose [sic] and that this exposure to pig neural tissue induced an immune system response that might have produced their mysterious peripheral neuropathy.

 

Treatment

Find the cause.  See Healing yourself

I have added a section on Identification of pathogens to the science section to show you what is possible, but diagnostic testing is outside the scope of this website.  This is what doctors ought to be doing.  Find youself a competent doctor who understands the concept of cause.

How it works

Where the spiritual experience is an hallucination, vision, near death etc experience, the pathogen has got into the central nervous system, and has attacked the brain.  This is usually apparent because it causes encephalitis.  Ultimately however the cause is thus Brain damage
