We will explore the pertinent evidence in the peer-reviewed literature and integrate the following:
The neuroscience underlying neurogenic inflammation, antidromic vasodilation, tachykinin release and pathophysiologic end-organ changes.
The immunology underlying neuronal monoamine oxidation, lymph node denervation and loss of immune competence.
The neuroimmune characteristics of connective tissue and its influence on nerve function.
Contextualize these understandings into the philosophy, art and science of chiropractic and nutritional recommendations.
