Are you aware that our nervous system is essentially the master of our entire body? We live our life through the nervous system, so, simply put: a better nervous system means a better life. Our nervous system effects everything from our ability to digest food, enjoy a sunny day, or be delighted by a child’s laughter. Our nervous system is what allows us to experience life at a greater level. However, if your nervous system is compromised, it will affect your ability to live life to the fullest.

There are thousands of different triggers that can result in headaches, and one thing is true for all headaches — they happen for a reason. A headache is your body’s way of communicating to you that something isn’t right.
