Brains Do Not Contain Pain Receptors

There are no pain receptors in the brain, so migraine and headache pain is generated by the meninges, the brain's covering. The human brain is the only object in nature that can contemplate itself.

A truly Unique Instrument

As a truly unique organ, the brain is composed of neurons, which are connected through branches. It is these neurons that are responsible for thinking.

There Are Branches In This Composition

The neuron forest comprises branches that form diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and multiple sclerosis, which can hinder our thinking, reasoning, and memory.

Tangles Cause Functions To Fail

The brain loses memory, mass, and other functions due to tangles within neurons and sticky proteins around them. Alzheimer's affects close to 50% of older people over age 85.

No Longer Are Brain Signals Isolated

About 1 in 1000 people get MS, a condition in which myelin, which protects the brain's branches, wears away. As a result, brain signals are no longer isolated from one another but become confused.

Reliable Transmission Of Messages

Dopamine is required to transmit messages properly between brain cells and their branches. When dopamine-producing cells cease to function, messaging becomes dysfunctional.
