The spinal cord is the main pathway of communication between the brain and the rest of the body. It is a tube like structure of nerves that are protected by the bones of the vertebrae. Nerves enter and exit along it entire length through small openings in the vertebrae. The spinal cord is highly organized with like minded nerves running together, motor nerves run down the front of the cord while the sensory nerves run down the back . We are attempting to rebalance the Calcium :Silicon balance and start to reverse the narrowing of the spinal canal as well as stimulate the efficiency of the nerve fibres to reduce pain and not just try to dampen pain while the condition continually worsens. The herbs included in the treatment are. •Horsetail: high in Silica and has a particular affinity with the Central Nervous System and building up the myelin sheath as well as repairing the spinal canal. •Mugwort: is a nervous system tonic which is used to support healing of any physical nervous system damage. •Hypericum: also to repair damaged or overstimulated nerve fibres while helping manage nerve pain. •Parsley: targets spinal nerve plexuses. Parsley energizes and renews flow of nervous energy. •Maritime Pine Bark: is a booster to the immune system and will speed up the restoration of the normal spinal canal. •Elecampane: is a well known support for healing of bones and connective tissue but also works to normalise other tissue in the body. •Devils Claw: is an anti-inflammatory and helpful in pain management control. •White Willow: also an anti-inflammatory particularly deeply penetrating. Along with the herbs I add the Bach Flowers Oak , Red Chestnut, Elm, Clematis and Rescue Remedy
