Comment: Love this illustration about neuroplasticity and our brain. In META-Health we consider our brain as the central “relay” station whereas every organ tissue has a specific brain relay. Our experts trained in Brain Relay Diagnostics can look at a brain CT or MRI and tell you exactly which organ tissue are active right now and which symptoms and related conflict themes you are experiencing right now … all that just by looking into your brain. Pretty amazing. A META-Health University course into Brain Relay Diagnostics will be offered soon. Johannes

It’s startling to think about how we’ve got a spaceship millions of miles away ready to rendezvous with Pluto, yet here on Earth there are major aspects of our own anatomy that we’re almost completely ignorant about. We’ve climbed Everest, sent men to the moon, and invented the Internet — but we still don’t know how our brains work. The positive outlook is that many health, science, and research specialists believe we’re on the precipice of some major neuroscientific breakthroughs.

One example of a recent discovery with major implications is our further understanding of neuroplasticity. Simply put, we used to think our brain was what it was — unchangeable, unalterable. We were stuck with what nature gave us. In actuality, our brains are like plastic. We can alter neurochemistry to change beliefs, thoughts processes, emotions, etc. You are the architect of your brain. You also have the power to act against dangerous impulses such as addiction. The therapeutic possibilities here are endless.

Below, broken up into two parts, is a terrific infographic detailing the essence of what we know about neuroplasticity and how it works. It was created by the folks at Alta Mira, a San Francisco-area rehabilitation and recovery center.
