Since you’re a chiropractor, just like me, or a DC2B, then I know you’ll love these cool neurological fun facts especially because they’re tied to communicating and learning.
As chiropractors, we make sure that the nerves communicate optimally to one another. Brain-centric Design is entrenched in helping us communicate to the nerves. The truth is that we have been TOLD to think and what to think. But we’ve never been taught HOW thinking really works. How does the neuroscience of learning and communication function?
- Myelination improves learning.
- Demyelination occurs from:
- Inflammation (this, in part, explains the VID brain-fog)
- Immune Disorders
- Metabolic Disorders
- Nutritional Deficiencies
- Poisons (carbon monoxide is a biggie)
- Drugs (especially several classes of antibiotics)
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- How our neurons fire is what makes each of us who we are.
- Hebb’s Law: neurons that fire together wire together
- Repetition of an idea/action builds and strengthens neural circuitry through myelination
- Learning is enhanced when we tie new information to what someone already knows, this causes dendritic arborization and deep understanding, which are paramount to retention.
Understanding the neuroscience of learning and communication increases our ability to be deliberate and intentional in our educational efforts. Brain-centric Design puts an end to the habit of saturating our communities with endless information about health, chiropractic, the harms of chemicals, etc.
This pursuit causes us to habitually chase after shiny objects as a means to grow our businesses simply because we don’t know any other way.
When we communicate in a neurologically friendly way, people GET IT!
They follow their care instructions because they’re emotionally connected to what you have presented about their health and well being. Practice members exercise personal agency, effortlessly sticking to their care plan leading to great results, raving fans, and freeing you up to serve more people.
I invite you to share these often forgotten cool neurological fun facts with your practice members inside and outside your practice. Get them talking about neurology and then you can easily demonstrate that a properly functioning nerve system is tied to EVERY part of their life.
