In recent years, the interaction between the brain and the body has been revealed one after another, as symbolized by the phrases "the gut is the second brain" and "the skin is the third brain."
These relationships are called brain-gut relationships and brain-skin relationships, but we also advocate the concept of "brain segment relationships." namely the interaction between the brain and the joints.
Relationship between brain and joints
I'm not sure if "walking is the way to go.
Rhythmic signal input from deep joint sensation (joint receptors) activates the brain through a mechanism called entrainment. Rhythmic stimuli such as vibration and fluctuation are behind the effectiveness of exercise and gymnastics therapy.cerebral elastoplasticityThe process is hidden in the process of inducing the
The brain is a high-performance simulation machine that repeatedly predicts and corrects, and a minute tapping on a joint leads to a change in nerve response by bringing about rhythmic minute fluctuations in the internal pressure of the joint. This implies that stochastic resonance caused by the application of internal pressure noise promotes reorganization of neural circuits (induction of brain elastic-plasticity). For stochastic resonancethis page(external site)See
In addition, the relationship between the brain and sensory receptors is also extremely important. That is, the complementary relationship between the brain and the sensory inputs. Recent research has shown that the five human senses do not function independently, but rather that the different senses work in conjunction with each other.
For example, the brain that has lost sight tries to adapt to social life by enhancing the function of hearing. The sense that food is delicious involves not only the integration of taste and smell, but also vision and touch. Food is tasted by looking, smelling, and chewing. At the same time as we advocate the notation of "mutual feeling" instead of the five senses, we call the close relationship between the brain and mutual feeling the brain feeling correlation.
Now, let me focus a little bit on the workings of the brain.
When humans are under stress, the autonomic nervous system becomes exhausted and metabolic function declines. Further exposure to large amounts of information leads to a condition called brain overload, which causes brain fatigue (or brain overwork).
A phenomenon in which a load exceeding the rating is applied to an electric circuit. In recent cognitive science, it is also used when a large amount of signal flows into the neural circuit of the brain.
If an overload occurs in the electrical wiring of housing equipment and an overcurrent occurs, the wiring will be short-circuited. A breaker is installed to prevent this. The electric circuit is protected by the breaker tripping.
In fact, humans also have a function (breaker) based on exactly the same principle. That is a severe pain attack of a stiff back, a crooked sleep, a hip joint and a fourty shoulder. When brain overload occurs, circuit breakers are tripped (temporarily halting activity due to severe pain attacks) to protect neural circuits. This is called the soft theory of pain.
People with broken breakers are at increased risk of depression and dementia.
As symbolized by the English word "karoshi" (death from overwork), it is said that only Japanese people die from overwork in developed countries. For this reason, Japan boasts the world's best results in fatigue research.
As an example, we are the first in the world to find out that the true nature of fatigue felt during work and exercise is not physical fatigue, but brain fatigue associated with a decline in autonomic nervous function (lactic acid for muscle fatigue). The theory turns out to be wrong).
It is not the muscles that get tired from hard work at home or at work, but the brain.
In clinical research related to brain fatigue, a particularly disturbing problem is "
It has been reported that these people continue to run at full power, recognizing that they are normal and in good health, increasing the risk of sudden death.
In this way, the state of being really tired but not feeling tired at all-masking of brain fatigue (brain overwork) -has the following risks as well as sudden death. Fractures due to falls, careless mistakes at work, misoperation of driving a car, stroke and heart failure, delayed detection of cancer, depression and dementia, etc.
Clinically, the signs of brain fatigue (brain overwork) are diverse and can manifest in many dimensions, ranging from motor, cardiovascular, digestive, and mental function.
Symptoms such as mistouch, false bite (biting in the mouth), blurred vision and swelling while working on a computer are not far from the image of the word brain fatigue (brain overwork), so it may be relatively easy to understand.

On the other hand, however, the various symptoms listed above may seem to be a bit "eh? Is that brain fatigue too? I suspect that many of you may be surprised.
However, our clinical research has shown that brain fatigue (brain overwork) actually underlies orthopedic problems (chronic pain, flail, etc.) and that brain resilience can improve pain and muscle coordination.
In considering the psychosomatic correlation, masking of brain fatigue (brain overwork) is an extreme example, but there are cases in which the signs of brain fatigue (brain overwork) are not commensurate with the degree of brain fatigue (brain overwork), i.e., there is a discrepancy between the intensity of brain fatigue (brain overwork) and symptoms.
This is a state in which the brain and body are not synchronized, a twist has occurred between the two, and the mind and body are not meshing.
You think you have your foot properly raised in your image, but you trip and fall on a step... You misstep on the gas pedal and the brake.... When you are full from a meal, your stomach sends a signal to your brain, but your conscious mind thinks there is not enough left, and you keep eating.... Under the blazing sun, the body needs water, but the conscious mind does not feel thirst....
You can see how this inability of the brain to accurately perceive the physical state of the body is a dangerous situation when it comes to disease recovery and prevention. In fact, the number of people suffering from this condition has exploded in recent years.
The detailed reason is unknown, but we are behind it.
Overloading the brain may cause brain fatigue (brain overwork), which may lead to information processing errors and misalignment between the brain and the body.
As a proof of this, there are cases where convalescent rehabilitation is combined with an overload perspective (an approach that reduces the gravity load), leading to dramatic recovery.
When information processing errors in the brain become normal, symptoms that do not match the lesions of the physical dimension appear. For example, it is represented by numbness (paresthesia) unrelated to neuralgia, hypoesthesia, dysgeusia, olfactory disorder, hyperesthesia, etc.
When the connection between the brain and the body is restored through this kind of integrative therapy, the patient will be able to sense changes in his/her own physical condition and will be able to take appropriate rest at the right time. By increasing the awareness of physical and mental maintenance, even if a person suffers from a serious illness, it is more likely that he or she will be able to go to the hospital before it is too late.
By optimizing the timing in healthcare in this way, well-being will be improved.
Although there are many different methodologies and approaches in the category of mind-body integration therapy, the Society recommends a system of treatment that emphasizes the dimensions of individual differences - this is called relative medicine.
