This becomes most important in vision, as the brain divides what it sees into four components: Extracellular Matrix is a collection of extracellular molecules secreted by cells that provides structural and biochemical support to the surrounding cells. The elimination of fat-soluble compounds, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead, is dependent upon adequate levels of glutathione, which in turn is dependent upon adequate levels of methionine and cysteine. Mind is a set of Cognitive faculties including consciousness , perception, thinking , judgment, and memory. Maintaining skills and abilities at a proficient level needs exercise. Meditation - Brain Food - Consuming Knowledge Neuron Pruning is similar to a computer when a person deletes old computer files. Neural tissue can generate oscillatory activity in many ways, driven either by mechanisms within individual neurons or by interactions between neurons.

Although commonly the ANS is looked at, and even defined, as if limited to motor fibers and excluding sensory fibers, a more comprehensive definition is that the reflex arcs of the ANS comprises both a sensory or afferent arm, and a motor or efferent, or effector arm.
These sensory neurons monitor the levels of carbon dioxide , oxygen , and sugar in the blood; arterial pressure; and the chemical composition of the stomach and gut content. They also convey the sense of taste, a conscious perception.
Blood oxygen and carbon dioxide are, in fact, directly sensed by the carotid body, a small collection of chemosensors at the bifurcation of the carotid artery, innervated by the petrosal IXth ganglion. The nTS also receives input from a nearby chemosensory center, the area postrema, which detects toxins in the blood, and the cerebrospinal fluid.
It is essential for chemically induced vomiting and conditional taste aversion the memory that ensures that an animal that has been poisoned by a food never touches it again. All this visceral sensory information constantly, and unconsciously, modulates the activity of the motor neurons of the ANS.
Sympathetic, parasympathetic, and enteric. Sympathetic ganglia are located in two sympathetic chains close to the spinal cord: The prevertebral and pre-aortic chains.
Parasympathetic ganglia, in contrast, are located in close proximity to the target organ: The submandibular ganglion close to salivary glands, paracardiac ganglia close to the heart, and so forth. Enteric ganglia, which, as the name implies, innervate the digestive tube, are located inside its walls and collectively contain as many neurons as the entire spinal cord, including local sensory neurons, motor neurons, and interneurons.
It is the only truly autonomous part of the ANS and the digestive tube can function surprisingly well even in isolation. Preganglionc sympathetic neurons are in the spinal cord, at thoraco-lumbar levels.
Preganglionic, parasympathetic neurons are in the medulla oblongata forming visceral motor nuclei: The dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve dmnX , the nucleus ambiguus, and salivatory nuclei and in the sacral spinal cord.
Enteric neurons are also modulated by input from the CNS, from preganglionic neurons located, like parasympathetic ones, in the medulla oblongata in the dmnX. The feedback from the sensory to the motor arm of visceral reflex pathways is provided by direct or indirect connections between the nucleus of the solitary tract and visceral motoneurons. Sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions typically function in opposition to each other. But this opposition is better termed complementary in nature rather than antagonistic.
For an analogy, one may think of the sympathetic division as the accelerator and the parasympathetic division as the brake. The sympathetic division typically functions in actions requiring quick responses. The parasympathetic division functions with actions that do not require immediate reaction. Consider sympathetic as "fight or flight" and parasympathetic as "rest and digest.
However, many instances of sympathetic and parasympathetic activity cannot be ascribed to "fight" or "rest" situations. For example, standing up from a reclining or sitting position would entail an unsustainable drop in blood pressure if not for a compensatory increase in the arterial sympathetic tonus. Another example is the constant, second-to-second modulation of heart rate by sympathetic and parasympathetic influences, as a function of the respiratory cycles.
It shows once and for all that we are not alike and there are definite distinctions in autonomic nervous system function between us. Those operating differences influence what foods, supplements and diet are optimal for helping us operate in a healthy, balanced mode.
This book explains the different types and provides high level guidance regarding what foods and supplements work for each type. Leave behind any notion you have that there is a "one diet fits all" approach to health. Ever wonder why you can tolerate citrus fruits but your friend can't? Or why you don't feel well after a heavy meat dinner but your friend can't live without it?
Or why your friend can't tolerate Magnesium supplements even though they are supposed to be good for you? This book explains why. I have followed the work of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez for many years. I have read each of their individual books.
Gonzalez did a fabulous job taking the key principles from the research of each of these Doctors and putting it into a very readable and understandable format that can be consumed by a lay person. This is a must read for anyone who is serious about applying nutritional principles for optimizing health. Despite curing thousands of patients or terminal diagnoses of cancer, the genius and radicality of Dr.
Gonzalez has yet to be truly discovered. Gonzalez offered the world a true alternative cancer cure for the modern age, one that is accessible, being that it is lifestyle and supplement-based, and effective, with historical and modern science to support its undoubted effectiveness. In this way, the Gonzalez Protocol is a marriage between conventional and alternative medicine, with the scientific rigor of experimentation, mechanism, and theory of the former and the holistic, individualized, natural, noninvasive, and practical approach of the latter.
Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Gonzalez Protocol is the individualization of diet based on anthropology, biochemistry, and autonomic physiology. Nowhere, even in alternative circles, is there a dietary approach that is so comprehensive and clinically relevant. I have searched far and wide for a more thorough explanation of the historical and scientific background of this wonderful paradigm of nutrition, and with this book, my search is over. I recommend this book to all medical practitioners who are serious about using nutrition clinically, as well as anyone who suffers the confusion of modern dietary dogmas that overgeneralizes nutritional recommendations and reduces nutrition to its biochemical components without a large understanding of the whole.
Gonzalez's work may challenge much of what people think they know about nutrition, physiology, and medicine. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Well written, informative, though rather technical.
Might be best suited to a healthcare professional or someone highly interested in scientific theories or methods. That being said, I not in healthcare but interested in good health found this fascinating and will use many of the diet tips for my particular metabolic type. As a patient I found this book extremely helpful, it explains the science behind the protocol that he uses in a way that made a lot of sense to me.
It has helped me to understand why it works and just how important it is to balance our autonomic nervous system to be well.
One of the most common questions I encounter is, "Where can I learn more about Dr. This book details the foundational premise of his paradigm-shifting approach to healing degenerative and terminal illnesses.
His writing feels like a friend's voice and his wisdom feels like the teacher we most need in this time of confusion around the true potential for regeneration and radical healing. This book is a powerful contribution toward the legacy of the most important figure in modern medicine. A legacy that will never die. It is very rare that new and a very different approach to a disease that has probably been part of us since our inception is accepted by clinicians who blindly treat cancer with chemotherapy and radiation.
Dr Gonzalez was truly brilliant. This book is amazing. I have long suspected that my autonomic nervous system was imbalanced, leaning more toward the sympathetic side than the parasympathetic. I now understand why I have had the issues that I have had over the years.
