Neurological disorders

A neurological disorder is a disease or injury of the nervous system that causes paralysis of any part of the body.  These disorders may involve the central nervous system (brain, brainstem and cerebellum), the peripheral nervous system (including cranial nerves) or the autonomic nervous system (parts of which are located in both central and peripheral nervous system).  Sometimes physical injury to the brain, spinal cord or nerves can be the cause of neurological disorders. Sometimes they can result from biochemical causes. Other times the cause may be unknown, and only the effects are seen.

Neurological disorders can be a sign that there is an imbalance in your system.  When something goes wrong with a part of your nervous system, you can have trouble moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing or learning. You can also have problems with your memory, senses or mood. When you have an imbalance, you are also susceptible to various diseases which can settle in weak areas of your body.
