understanding that “Good Health” depends, in part, upon a “Normally Functioning” Nervous System
(especially the Spine, and the Nerves extending from the Spine to “All” parts of the Body).

Spinal Column is a series of movable bones that
begin at the Base of your Skull
and end in the Center
of your Hips.
31 pairs of Spinal Nerves extend down the Spine
from the Brain and exit through a
series of openings.
Nerves leave the Spine and “Form” a complicated Network that influences every living
tissue in your body.
