Nervous System

How to keep your nervous system healthy

Your nervous system has the key function of processing the millions of tiny electrical pulses that carry vital information to and from your brain and around your body.

Your mood, sleep, hormones and response to illness or infection are all governed by your nervous system.

It can help you feel calm and relaxed when under pressure, but over-stimulation can result in enhanced feelings of stress, anxiety and low mood. All of these can have a damaging effect on your physical and mental wellbeing.

Why is the nervous system important?

Your nervous system helps all your organs and other parts of the body to communicate with each other. It reacts to changes inside the body and external environment, using electrical and chemical signals to send and receive instructions to your cells about how to respond.

When its functioning well, it ensures your body can easily cope with many of the everyday activities we take for granted, such as eating, breathing, walking, talking and eating, as well as controlling some of the more complex processes like thinking, reading, memory and emotions.

However, problems with the nervous system can result in a wide range of health conditions, from simple things like confusion or memory loss to more serious issues including epilepsy, meningitis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, stroke and Alzheimer’s.
