A group of nerve cell bodies clustered together in a uniform mass outside of but often close to the brain or spinal chord. Nerves run to or from the ganglia in passage to or from the brain to specific sites on the body.
“...Since these nerves are extremely small, they are usually reached at areas near the spinal cord, where many nerves run together into structures known as sympathetic ganglia, before they spread out throughout the body...”
“...low back pain include: prostatitis, hidden food allergies, hypothyroidism, autointoxication or intestinal toxemia (self-poisoning by harmful gut bacteria), mercury toxicity (if stored in the sensory ganglia near the low back), arthritis, kidney involvement, and psychological issues...”
“Neural Therapy (NT) is a treatment system for chronic pain and illness using injection of a local anesthetic (usually procaine, also known as novocaine) into autonomic ganglia, peripheral nerves, scars, glands, and trigger points...”
“...Postural tremors include physiological tremor, essential tremor, tremor with basal ganglia disease (also seen in patients with Parkinson's disease), cerebellar postural tremor, tremor with peripheral neuropathy, post-traumatic tremor, and alcoholic tremor...”
“Also called the pneumogastric nerve, this is the tenth cranial nerve, with many fibers leading to parasympathetic ganglia in internal organs, and can be considered the presynapse starter for the upper parts of the parasympathetic functions...”
“...As a result, there is an increase in serotonin and acetylcholine concentration, which are neuromodulators found in virtually all autonomic ganglia (the clusters of brain cells that serve as bridges between the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system...”
