    Alex is definitely right. The immune system is KING. It's all about survival...

    CBT is about changing your thought patterns. Changing your thought patterns will "rewire" or "reorganize" your brain. CBT uses the plastic properties of the brain to make changes; so does learning experiences and visualization.

    None of this will make dead neurons come alive though. The big question is how much damage has been done to brain from factors such as inflammation, oxidative stress, exicotoxicity, toxins, hypoxia and ischemia.

    It was believed until relatively recently that the adult brain could not acquire new neurons, but this now appears to be incorrect. From a quick search I found this interesting review paper from 2005:

    I expect more has been learned since then.

    Hi Golden. Just want to mention that I did a therapy called "Nasal Specific", also known as "Balloon Sinuplasty", which helped enormously in "unlocking" my cranials. I don't have the energy this morning to write much about, but thought I'd give you a couple of links if you had an interest:

    Central Nervous System Restoration

    Functional Cranial Release Videos

    Balloon Sinuplasty Explanation

    When I first had a ballon sinuplasty done, I could feel and hear my cranials release, which sounded a lot like cracking my knuckles. It was a major shift for me.

    Best, Wayne
