The importance of allowing your children to hang upside down

The embryo, the nervous system and the reflex....... What is becoming more and more apparent, and really if you think about it, not really surprising, is that the brain is the body and the body is the brain or the mind. At the embryonic stage, 5/10 weeks, amazingly the first cells have begun to form the nervous system, the heart, face, arms and legs, sexual organs and muscles and movements. Once the nerves and muscles start working together, the baby can start making conscious movements Going back to the first part of the embryo to be formed, the nervous system. This coordinates the actions by transmitting signals to different parts of the body. We have two main parts, the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord whilst the peripheral nervous system consists of nerves which are enclosed bundles of long fibers called axons, they connect the central nervous system to every part of the body. Nerves that transmit signals from the brain are called motor and the nerves that transmit information from the body to the central nervous system are called sensory. A reflex is an unconscious movement that the body carries out. This movement helps with survival and development. These vital reflexes assist with the birthing process, help the newborn adjust to life outside the womb and help build the foundation for motor and cognitive skills. In a typical child, most of these reflexes will integrate or transition to mature responses within the first year or so. This occurs when the central nervous system develops.

The retained reflexes I work with are neo natal and postural. 
They are automatic movements that help us develop from an embryo state to an upright, fully functioning adult.  Not only do they physically help us to grow and stand but also help with survival, w...
