If somebody asked you where health comes from, what would you say? Would you say your heart, your lungs, or would it be your brain? Healing in your body works by sending messages from the brain through nerve messages that move down your spinal cord out your nerves to every tissue, cell, muscle, and organ. Your nervous system is the master control of the body. This is how God set up the healing process. If you think about it, since the nervous system has to process every experience we have in life, we live our lives through our nervous system. This is the reason it is important, from birth through adult years, to have a well functioning nervous system.
Have you ever heard the phrase “mouth of God”? This phrase is used to describe one of the most important parts of your body when it comes to being healthy. The mouth of God is the first bone in your neck, otherwise known as the “atlas”. When in normal position, this bone should be pointing up at 30-31 degrees. The atlas is important because it surrounds and protects the brain stem, which controls the whole body. When this bone, or mouth, goes down instead of pointing up, it puts pressure on the brain stem. You are more likely to succumb to sickness, pain, or disease if the first bone, or mouth of God, is not pointing up at the right degree. When the mouth of God closes, the life, or function in the brain is blocked, thus causing functional problems to the whole body.
Many people remember Christopher Reeve, aka Superman. He actually hurt his atlas or mouth of God. He fell off a horse, onto his head, and dislocated the first two bones in his neck. This dislocation caused a lesion,, about the size of the tip of your pinky on his brain stem. Most people realize that, because of that injury, he was paralyzed, his organs stopped, and he died. It is interesting that he did not hurt an organ or a specific muscle, rather, he just hurt his mouth of God, and it affected everything below in his body.
I do not expect you to have a lesion on your mouth of God like Christopher Reeve, however, a lot of people tend to have pressure on that area. The interesting thing is you can have pressure on your mouth of God, blocking function to the whole body, and not feel a thing. If would like to get your mouth of God checked, or if you have any questions, let us know. Have a great day!
