Shunting is the most common treatment for anyone with hydrocephalus (excess fluid buildup in the ventricles of the brain). Hydrocephalus shunting involves the implantation of two catheters and flow control valve system to drain the excess accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the brain’s ventricles (or the lumbar subarachnoid space) to another part of the body where it can be absorbed... Another good publication for those learning about Hydrocephalus from square one!

Treatment of Brain Aneurysms

A diagrammatic vertical section through the brain showing the location of the ventricles and the direction of flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). CSF is formed by the choroid plexuses (CP), mainly in the lateral ventricles, and drains into the blood via the arachnoid villi and the spinal nerve roots

Hydrocephalus: also known as "water in the brain," is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles, or cavities, of the brain. This may cause increased intracranial pressure inside the skull and progressive enlargement of the head, convulsion, tunnel vision, and mental disability. Hydrocephalus can also cause death.

Your brain is connected to it all! I dream that everyone will know the importance of their spine!

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found a simple way to turn bone marrow stem cells directly into brain precursor cells, a potential breakthrough in the treatment of neurological diseases and injuries (via Science Daily). Also here:

Kundalini Shakti resides in a coiled form at the bottom of our spinal cord. Once the Kundalini Shakti gets “diksha”,it starts flowing from the bottom of our spine where the brain can completely alchemize its energy into vital hormones and higher spiritual energy.Once a full Kundalini has awakened,it completes the circuit from the genital parts to the brain through the spine.During this,all the seven chakras,experience a breakthrough opening after which the person possesses great intelligence
