Neurotransmitter ACETYLCHOLINE (Ach)
What does ACETYLCHOLINE do?
Activates skeletal muscles. Commonly secreted at neuromuscular joints (gaps connecting motor nerves to muscle cells) where it stimulates muscles to contract.
At other kinds of junctions, typically produces an inhibitory postsynaptic potential
Contributes to the regulation of attention, arousal, and memory
Some known effects of ACETYLCHOLINE
Ach receptors stimulated by nicotine;
Nerve gas attacks Ach system
The venom from the bite of a black widow spider causes an excessive release of acetylcholine. This can lead to severe muscle contractions, spasms, paralysis, and possibly death.
Arrow tips poisoned with curare blocks transmission of acetylcholine at nerve cell synapses, causing paralysis
Chronic low-level inflammation (CLII) involved in almost all health problems
"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
