Your nervous system manages your entire body.
If you need to make changes in pain, range of motion, strength, coordination, speed, agility, or any other physical attribute, the fastest path to getting there is to figure out how to adjust your nervous system.
In other words, your nervous system runs the whole show.
Research has proven that the nervous system can continue to learn and adapt at any age, which means you can improve your body at any point in your life by focusing on the nervous system.
And since your nerves communicate at lightning-fast speed, if you impact the nervous system correctly, you can make nearly instantaneous changes in the body. By using the nervous system to rapidly “debug” your movement patterns, you can create extremely quick and responsive improvements in performance (plus pain relief, injury prevention, and mindset.)
Today, in my interview with Dr. Eric Cobb from Z-Health Performance Solution you're going to learn exactly how to make your nervous system unstoppable, eliminate pain and build your brain.
Dr. Eric Cobb is the founder and CEO of Z-Health Performance Solutions, a movement health and fitness company with three different educational divisions: Rehabilitation, Health Improvement and Performance Enhancement. Dr. Cobb is a chiropractic physician, professional speaker, author and nationally sought-after fitness trainer.
During this interview, Dr. Cobb and I discuss exactly how to debug, fix and strengthen your brain and neuromuscular system.
What is Z-Health?
Z-Health is a program that teaches the general public how to strengthen their nervous system, certifies fitness professionals, and provides books and programs to teach you how to make your nervous system stronger.
Z-Health is based around:
- Efficient movement patterns. Movement is the fastest way to communicate with the nervous system. The movement tells your body where it is in space, how fast it is moving, and what movements are safe. By re-training and “waking up” these nerve endings, you can help your body get out of pain and perform at your true genetic potential.
- Sensory integration training. The nervous system needs accurate information from the visual, vestibular (balance and spatial orientation), and proprioceptive (brain’s 3D map of the body in space) systems, and their integration.
- Addressing the whole person with continuous assessment. By applying the Z-Health Model during every training session, you can be assured that you are getting EXACTLY what you need during that session. Only when joints, muscles, and other tissues are able to move in throughout full ranges of motion, pain-free, will the nervous system release the governor on your performance.
