When INNATE INTELLIGENCE (Spirit) constructed the human body, there was placed into the brain a CENTER charged with the responsibility of removing waste products from the body. This center is located in the cerebrum.
The principal organs involved in the SECOND ZONE are as follows:
- The Sinuses.
- The Lungs, including Bronchi.
- The Urinary Tract.
- The Bowels.
- The Skin.
The spinal cord levels involved with Zone 2 are as follows:
- THIRD THORACIC
- TWELFTH THORACIC
- SECOND LUMBAR
Peripheral stimulation of the afferent nerves in this center develops nerve impulses which, when transmitted to the cord, cause the following: (1). A stimulation of the motor center, a discharge of nerve impulses to the muscles calling forth a contraction; (2). A stimulation of the inhibitor center, a discharge of nerve impulses to the muscles involved calling forth their relaxation and inhibition. During this activity the discharge of the toxic material takes place.
In calling for an increased excretion from the kidneys, a stimulative thrust over the nerves emitting from the spine at the 12th Thoracic vertebra will cause the following activity to take place. Stimulation of the central end of the inferior splanchnic (at the 12th Thoracic) causes reflexly a contraction of the sphincter muscle and an inhibition of the detrusor muscle. At the same time the compressor urethra is inhibited in consequence of an inhibition of its spinal center. As a result, the urine is freely discharged.
The tonus of the colon is regulated by the ELIMINATIVE CENTER of the brain through the central nervous system through both augmentor and inhibitor nerves. The augmentor nerves comprise both preganglionic and postganglionic fibers. The inhibitor fibers also comprise both preganglionic and postganglionic fibers. The former have their origin in the lumbar region (2nd LUMBAR) of the spinal cord, from which they emerge at the second lumbar. They then pass into and through the sympathetic chain and the inferior splanchnic nerves to the inferior mesenteric ganglion around the cells of which they form an arborization. The postganglionic fibers pass directly to the muscle fibers of the intestinal wall. STIMULATION will cause increased evacuation from the intestines.
