Cranial Nerve Sequencing
What are the cranial nerves, and what do they do?
Our nervous system makes up our brain and spinal cord which sends and receives messages from the body, so our brain is can be divided into several different parts. You have the cortex of your brain, that’s like the thinking part of your brain, and underneath it, you have something called the brainstem. Cranial nerves come out of the brainstem; these nerves are both voluntary and involuntary and they fire and help us with several different important functions. They assist with blinking, breathing, swallowing, taste, smell, and they help run the muscles of the face.
What are some of the signs that someone’s cranial nerves may not be working?
When the cranial nerves aren’t sequencing like we want them to, there can be several signs that cause it. The first is history. A lot of people with different kinds of head trauma, their cranial nerves aren’t functioning like we want them to. This could be people who have been in car accidents, even a car accident over 10 miles an hour can throw these nerves off. Also, anyone with repeated head trauma like concussions or those who played sports, soccer, football, hockey, etc. There are various other events in life that can cause the nerves to dysfunction, one of them also is PTSD. Some of the symptoms you see from some of these people are general dysfunction in the face area; maybe they have difficulty breathing (especially nose breathing). For a lot of these people, the dysfunction can come in the form of snoring, headaches or even fatigue, TMJ issues, problems with the jaw, and problems with vision. You see all kinds of cases with cranial nerve dysfunction.
What does a cranial nerve appointment look like at the Tennant Institute?
There are 12 sets of these cranial nerves, and during a cranial nerve appointment, we’re able to go in and perform specific tests to see how these cranial nerves are functioning. Based on these tests, we do an exam on your body and depending on your body’s response I (Dr. Faldmo) take that information and write it down. After we’ve examined all 12 cranial nerves and get the specific results for you, we’re able to start the sequencing processing. When we do that, we are able to accomplish a lot that day. You’ve heard the saying that you can fish for someone or teach someone how to fish; I really want to teach you how to fish so you don’t have to depend on me. Once we’ve started on the resequencing process of these nerves, I can send you home with exercises you can do on your own to continue the support and finish the process. It’s worth mentioning that for people who can’t travel to the Tennant Institute, we can perform some of these processes over a telemedicine video call appointment.
What are the benefits of cranial nerve sequencing?
There are multiple benefits to synchronizing the cranial nerves, one of the things that it does is help the body with nose breathing. Nose breathing has several purposes, but it mainly helps the body get more oxygen into its system. Many people have taken CPR classes, and one of the things they teach you when somebody can’t breathe is you must lift their head and bring their jaw forward. Nose breathing aids in healing due to better oxygen flow, but it also helps with posture because if you are not nose breathing, it’s going to force your head forward and your body’s head is not meant to go forward, we need to have a more upright stance. Another thing that nose breathing accomplishes is filtering out toxins. Whenever we breathe through the mouth we absorb more toxicities because there are not as many layers of filters in the mouth. When we breathe through the nose, there are multiple layers of filters there to reject the toxins we breathe in.
It also helps make the body’s voltage be more efficient. The cranial nerves of the face and the head take up a lot of voltage, so this helps your voltage be more efficient. Another thing it helps with is posture. We know that when something takes up a lot of energy in your system that it drains other structures and muscles around it, so this will help with posture as well.
