It’s amazing how a large portion of my recovery has been accomplished through focused attention on visual and vestibular pathways.
It is widely said that the eyes are the window to the soul, but our eyes are LITERALLY the window to our brains!
You see, our brains have 12 superhighways that send signals to and from the brain. 🛣🧠
These superhighways are called cranial nerves and, while 6 of them affect our visual system, 4 of them are DEDICATED to our visual system!
This means that ONE THIRD of the superhighways that send signals to and from the brain ARE DEDICATED TO less than 1% of our body’s physical realistate: OUR EYES!
Our eyes are not only a literal window to the brain, but they are also a therapeutic window to the brain where we can effect neuroplastic change!
