Vessels directly connecting brain, lymphatic system exist despite decades of doctrine that they don't
Finding may have substantial implications for major neurological diseases
Game-changing discovery opens new areas of research, transforms existing ones
Major gap in understanding of the human body revealed
'They'll have to change the textbooks'
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., June 1, 2015 - In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. That such vessels could have escaped detection when the lymphatic system has been so thoroughly mapped throughout the body is surprising on its own, but the true significance of the discovery lies in the effects it could have on the study and treatment of neurological diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer's disease to multiple sclerosis.
What is the implication of this find? If you have a damaged immune system it is very likely you will be affected at the mental level as well. With these findings we are moving closer to the whole body-mind-environment concept in health that many are proposing. I have something to add. Except for the mainstream system no other system talks about a distinct immune system. They talk of the life force or prana shakti - a dynamic force that takes care of processes, maintenance, regeneration and protection. Protection or immunity is just a part of this system which functions as an unified force. I think the public should realize that if they willingly let their immune system be damaged by misguided interventions (aka vaccines) they are playing with this unified vital force and endangering their lives, health as well as future progeny.
