Nervous system / Brain

Our nervous system consists of two parts: the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), and the peripheral nervous system (the nerves in the rest of the body). The nerves in the rest of the body are classified as part of either the parasympathetic, sympathetic, or enteric systems. All bodily functions are controlled and regulated by the nervous system, including the body’s response to stress. Disorders can affect any part of the nervous system. Herbal remedies can help with general wellness, or impact the severity of a disorder’s symptoms. Many herbal remedies have a calming effect on the nervous system.
