Are you aware that some cultures call the atlas “the mouth of God” denoting the power that lies within? Being that motor nerves or nerve impulses, when they leave your brain, no matter where they are going, have to pass through this area. The sensory nerves or nerve impulses, no matter where they are coming from (your organs, joints, muscles, skin, hormone system – get the picture?) have to pass thru this area to get to the brain. So no matter where the nerves are coming or going, they all have to pass thru the base of the skull where the atlas sits. When your atlas is out of its proper position, it can literally affect everything and anything in your body. Including mood, focus, ability to sleep, energy function, organ function, pain levels and immune system. Get your atlas checked first for optimum health!
