This is the time of transformation where a lot of scientific breakthroughs are emerging day by day. People are now more informed than they ever used to be.

One such disease that most of the people suffer from are the ones that are closely associated with the brain.
The brain has the entire control over your thoughts, act, speech, movement, and so on. All the information from the brain is passed on through the nerves. When the nerves all will work well, then you will also be quick and automatic, but the problems in the nerves can take your life in a different way altogether.
Any defect that occurs externally can be treated, but when it comes to internal organs like nerve, a lot of care and attention.
