Unit 4 covers the Nervous System.

Two attempts at the test again - there’s always something I miss, but I keep a note of my answers and go back and revise the ones I got wrong. 100% opens the next module.

This unit is going to be so useful for most of us. We’re all subject to stresses and it will help you understand your system and as a consequence, make better choices.

Lesson 1

Tells you about the nervous system, brain, spinal chord, central and peripheral nervous systems and how they work together.

Explains the fight-flight, rest-digest responses and that really helps the whole ‘stress’ concept fit into place, the reason we're affected by stress in ways we can't understand - skin eruptions, stomach problems for example.

Lesson 2

This goes into stress and the physiological effects. Digestive upsets, headaches, high blood pressure, diabetes. loss of libido, insomnia and depression are just a few of the consequences of constant chronic stress.

The lesson tells you about adaptogens, nervines and lifestyle changes you can make.

You would be amazed how many of the nervine herbs you might have growing in your garden already!

Lesson 3

Deals with headaches and migraines. Explains about vascular and tension headaches and herbs and plants to help. 

There is guidance on preventing migraines and liver support which can be linked with them. Herbal analgesics, nervines and anti-spasmodics are covered.

Lesson 4

The huge topic of sleep - everything from which herbs help to lifestyle adaptations.

Your body needs sleep to recharge and if you can get a good night’s sleep, you know you can cope with a lot of things.

This lesson alone could be the one thing that will change your life. You may not have problems now, but if you’ve always got this knowledge, then you’re ready if insomnia affects you or anyone in your family.

There’s a great video which shows you how to make a relaxation tea. 

The Bonus Section

All about B vitamins, the common food sources and deficiency symptoms.
