Destructive Pulse Syndrome  (DPS)

           Destructive Pulse Syndrome    © Andy D Kemp 2011


The following article is based upon research and observations relating to my mother’s Motor Neuron Disease (towards answering unexplained phenomena), first hand knowledge of a diagnosis in Idiopathic Secondary Parkinson’s Disease, observation of Multiple Sclerosis and the factual benefits observed through certain Physiotherapy techniques; alleviating pressure within the spinal column. In knowledge that not all cases of PD or other neurological conditions will be subject to physical damage as described, the term Destructive Pulse Syndrome has been adopted to define and focus upon the common symptoms of cell damage, loss and cross over synapse patterns observed in PD, MND and MS.

Understanding the aspect of DPS initially involves a simplistic view of an energy circuit that relies upon feedback loops to govern its sustainability.

Imagine a simple self sustaining circuit system comprising of a self governing pulse generator with rechargeable battery and a wired in robot arm. Energy is sent from the generator around the circuit, the robot arm moves, burning off some of the energy and the remaining unused energy flows back into the generator, where more energy from the rechargeable battery amasses sufficient energy to send the next pulse to continue energising the arm. For such a self sustaining system to continually function, the pulse generator would require governors that balance and regulate all the available resources relevant to the whole system, so that the arm could retrieve an additional energy source to top up the rechargeable battery.

If you put a single variable resistor into the circuitry that interrupts the energy flow to and from the arm. This resistor inhibits the energy flow and will not release energy to activate the arm, until it has received an increased amount of pulsed energy, and  times withhold more of the returning energy, eventually releasing a sufficiently large surge of energy back to the pulse generator, greater than the pulse generator normally supplies. Obviously, when this occurs, the pulse generator requires the means to adapt accordingly to address this imbalance, which may include the ability to, discharge or disperse the increased pulse of energy, and or an ability to replicate, replace any damaged elements or destroyed cells within the pulse generator (the brain).

While the above is not a very scientific description, and the human body is much more complicated than a series of simple circuits;itmay be useful to consider the full effects of internally damaged or scarred tissues within and around the nervous system, that may effectively kick start or perpetuate a variety of neurological disorders (dependant upon the location of damaged nerve tissue and the portions of the brain these increased returning synapse pulses damage).

This in turn suggests, that by treating the root cause’s with Physiotherapy including, gentle manipulation, stimulation (including target specific repair medicine), massage and good exercise, some progressive neurological diseases may be completely avoided, slowed down, or even cured. While this may not cover every aspect of neurology, even the genetic make up of nerve tissues may invite similar 'resistance and surge' synapse patterns occurring due to the altered cell wall structure. It is the approach to identifying and treatment of the causes that is important, rather than just topping up apparent deficiencies emanating from the causes.

In looking at this theory in more depth, we need to consider the finer details of biological electricity, or aspects of the synapse process in greater detail, and what happens to damaged or compressed tissue cells (wall thickening and density).

In simplistic terms, the synapses or movement of energy through the nervous system will likely follow the easiest routes through the individual cell walls. While considering this, there is also the aspect of division or ‘doubling’ of a synapse within the nerve cells; where the command synapses propel a physical motion of the cell, while at the same time relay a response synapse back to the brain, confirming the success or failure of that command. In general terms, the aspects of breathing heart beating, etc., run subconsciously, while the motor aspects in moving the body through space, require a conscious thought process; and in both cases, the feedback synapses necessitate reception and response mechanisms within the brain, via the central and peripheral nerve system.

With damaged nerve cells however, the movement and energy value of the synapse will likely be hindered. The synapse may fire between cells at different locations in the cell walls, causing the current to divert or discharge on route, or sit within a cell until another incoming synapse provides sufficient power to enable the continuation of the synapses along the nerve fibre. The bi-fold nature of the synapse mechanism, means that nerve cells may allow command but withhold response, or vice versa, providing some undesired effects, that the brain will automatically try to re-address and or heal.

With entrapped nerve fibres or groups of nerve ganglion, where the cell walls are compacted together, the tissue will become denser. This may cause ‘bottle necking’ where the synapses are held within the cells, unable to continue their journey, until the external pressure releases, and the cell walls expand back to their operable density.With scarred tissue, the nerve cells may never recover.

Determining the extent of nerve damage in the various parts of the anatomy at the earliest stage possible is going to be key towards combating the knock on effects caused by insufficient or distorted synapse.

In re-describing DPS, the delay or failure of response synapses to reach the brain may cause the brain to send duplicated synapses, or choose neighbouring cells to dispatch new command synapses; leaving the first group of cells in a temporary idle mode. While a surge of response synapses returning to the brain may overwhelm or destroy cells.


This sort of brain damage may be temporarily healed as the human body is renewing cells all the time, as we age the renewal processes begin to slow down. As the muscles and nerve tissues lose the elasticity of youth, the damage from 'resistance and surge' synapse patterns are likely to physically increase; to the point where the original areas of damaged and hardened nerve fibres start to increase and give rise to adjacent or other associated areas of cells becoming affected in a similar fashion. In looking at this theory to identify DPS on a broader level,a common aspect of some injuries to the spinal column and central nerve, may relate directly to recognised neurological diseases and malfunctions.

For instance, DPS damage predominately caused or affected by the upper areas of the spine and neck, may be attributed to a form of Motor Neurone Disease when the throat and swallowing mechanism are the significant areas initially malfunctioning, and in the later development stages of this disorder, the apparent mix-up in emotions, as the patient sheds tears when they are effectively laughing and vice versa (apparently laughing when actually being upset) are more easily understood, as the synapses are being redirected or disorientated along shared pathways.

The development of DPS through the upper regions of the spine may arise or stem from a variety of causes, such as; the development of curvatures due to muscle imbalance caused by hereditary genes, posture fixations caused through lifestyle or the working environment (such as in IT or office occupations where seating and screen positions remain at a constant), to accidents such as Whiplash injuries (associated with sharp breaking of a vehicle) or contact sports like rugby and boxing.

Likewise, the development of DPS through lower regions of the spine may cause similar symptoms attributed to Secondary or Idiopathic Parkinson’s where the synapses are hindered, disorientated and again routed along shared pathways; typically and often effecting one side of the body first, corresponding to the root of the injury. In cases associated with repetitive strain injuries, this may be more apparent in regard to the natural right or left handed aspect of the patient. Although, in spinal injuries, where dehydrated or disc hernias are present, it should be noted that injury, and or swelling on one side of the spine may cause ‘bottle necking’ scenarios on the opposite side, where the extending nerve branches are squeezed against the vertebrae bone structures around their corresponding areas of exit.

Another cause of DPS may emanate through the compacting of the spine at the base of the back, where dehydrated discs allow pressure to bear upon the sciatic nerves as they exit the spinal column. Noting that physical damage and scarring to the sciatic nerves may also occur, through a process of being constantly bruised by shocks associated with sports such as horse riding, prolonged periods in a static sitting posture taking the full weight of the body, and or with insufficient cushioning for the absorption of any mechanical vibration when operating machines.

DPS may also develop through physical limb injuries where a major nerve has been damaged for life, and as a result, there is a continual ‘bottle necking’ as mentioned above. To a certain degree some of the nerve synapses may be re routed as the body compensates for the damaged nerve cells and the extent of such injuries may not become fully apparent until the central nerve is directly effected, or the condition of the spinal column compounds the synapse imbalance with additional imbalances.


There are two important aspects that spring to mind through this theory. Firstly, where childhood injuries or abnormalities result in subsequent lack of growth in the areas of bone tissue through which nerves pass there will be continual effects upon Synapse from the ‘bottle necking’ and permanent scarring. Secondly, any ‘conditioning’ aspect set upon individual cells effected by the altered synapse patterns, may be reflected in their subsequent renewal, promoting a continual degeneration of the cell properties.


In the early stages, typical symptoms of DPS may include, pins and needle's, tingling and warmth feelings, current rushes and muscle twitching in a limb, a longer time period for a particular limb to achieve a relaxed state, and similar symptons as found in Restless Leg Syndrome.

Further symptoms may be seen as the body relaxes for sleep: These include, impromptu limb jerks, rushing of synapse charges up the central nerve resulting in momentary dizziness, drying and tingling in the wet areas of the mouth, echo in the ear chamber, buzzes and popping sensations in the brain. Such symptoms may only occur spasmodically during times of stress, or at times when the spinal discs are dehydrated sufficiently to magnify the resistance and surge aspect of the synapses. Akin to this, any disorientation in a response synapse, reflecting the prior conditioning of the returning response synapses, occurring within the area of the brain, may result in a mirrored misdirection; producing feelings of anxiety, and other mental aspects, occasional illusion and hallucination, as the brain readapts to these fluctuations.

If you suffer from any of the symptons mentioned above please consult your family doctor or GP who will refer you to a Physiotherapist and a Neurologist if necessary.

It is also known that adrenalin and dopamine reach the brain from the kidney region (where natural dopamines are also refined in the Adrenal glands) and this aspect no doubt contributes to the many neurological functions around the body, coordinated by the brain; the flow of which may be hindered by subseguent nerve damage or distortions in the condition of the spine (due to its compression and the state of muscle tone in that region) so that synapses are disturbed, effecting both the Motor signals around the body and the response signals heading back to the brain.

Being part and parcel of Secondary Parkinson's Disease, the dopamine shortfalls and other effects caused by DPS are normally dealt with through the in take of synthetic dopamine and medicines as prescribed by the Neurologist.



Coping with, reducing and preventing DPS


Physiotherapy and exercises to gently stretch the spine to alleviate the restricted compressed nerve ways, is by far the most effective treatment available. With an increase in fluid intake to assist with disc re-hydration, the spinal column is rejuvenated to its full length. Which in turn restores (increases) the surface area of the central nerve, while expanding and opening up the connecting nerve branches, drastically reducing any aspect in ‘bottle necking,’ to allow an unhindered flow in synapses through the blood brain barrier.

Supplements like Borage oil may assist in maximising the natural dopamine production in the Adrenal glands (as the body readjusts production levels as necessary). While Coconut oil may assist in the overall vitality and health of the body; As I understand and appear to benefit from its medium-chain fatty acids or medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) property, that seem to assist in maintaining the cell wall insulation properties.


Accordingly, if DPS is recognised in its early stages, Physiotherapy may well be the most cost effective prevention & cure available.





Further Thoughts


If there is tempoary damage or a loss of cells in the brain or idle/dead cells, due to a previous surge in synapses, then the following 'response' synapses are going to connect with the next nearest cell that will accept the synapse along their pathway. Which again may trigger response in cells that would not normally be in the direct path. In the past, such in aspect may not have been openly discussed upon fear of medical institition and its taboo, and in turn hindered research progress and correct diagnosis. More importantly; When these aspects of mind disorientations caused by DPS are outwardly observed, they have been misdiagnosed as a totally seperate mental disorder. Leading to the precription of unsuitable medicines, that exasperate the whole situation, causing additional muscle contractions that accelerate the DPS through more, acute affects in 'bottle necking.'


Alleviating physical pressure and locally treating damaged areas of nerve tissue where appropriate, upon all the nerve branches and the central nerve passages returning the response synapses, will obviously halt the destruction of cells in the brain. With the central nerve and branches running very close to the surface of the back; it should be possible to correlate and measure synapse power levels (with adaptation of modern technology) identifying any unwanted drops in the synapses charge in energy, towards pin pointing where the localised treatments are required (reserving the use of MRI equipment for severe cases). Treatments may include stimulating nerve fibres using Tens to improve muscle tone, and realignment of nerve cells ‘clearing pathways so to speak’ to actively direct the route of the synapses; to eradicate hardened ganglions and the subsequent ‘bottle necks.’ In short many cases of Secondary Parkinson's Disease are cureable right now! 

It may also be worth considering for a moment, that while the hardening of the nerve tissue at ‘the blood brain barrier,’ may restrict the flow of naturally produced dopamine's (that assist to channel or carry the synapses) it appears that to a certain extent, the consumption of Synthetic dopamine's (as found in prescribed levadopa medicines) borne within their various chemical compound carriers, enable gateways to operate through the thickened walls. The aspect in successful physiotherapy may reduce the need or necessitate a change in prescribed doses in synthetic levadopa as the body increases and regulates its own supply.


Given the complexities of all the mentioned neurological disorders, in the advent of Stem cell research as a possibility to a cure; such implanted cells may likely come under similar Synapse attack, to conclude that more research into the above described phenomena may help pave the way towards determining suitability and levels of future treatments required for individual cases where Physiotherapy and early diagnosis have failed to heal.


During this research, one of the factors suggesting that Motor Neurological diseases like Motor Neuron Disease and Secondary Parkinson's, may be related to physical postures and damaged nerve tissue around and or within the spine, was the startling similarities in posture observed in both my mother and Professor Hawking. This made me ask, whether the disorder brought on the posture or the posture contributed to the disorder; and knowing my mother's life from ballerina (with all the physical posture training) to a family mum, who later developed a severe upper spine curvature, the latter appears the more appropiate answer.


Decompressing and maintaining the spinal column, through exercises to reduce physical tensions in the body (along with a healthy balanced diet) will help to ensure that the nerve routes remain open and in optimal condition; reducing and assisting many disorders.

The Environment, Motor Neurological Condition DPS and Treatments.


It is interesting to note all the different chemical compounds being marked as potential causes for Neurological based disorders, when I have periodically worked with solvents, probably breathed in, and possible eaten toxin traces and elements on vegetables brought in the market! Who knows? While toxins and other environmental elements enter the body, the body is pretty good at cleaning itself during the course of time, provided we drink enough.

So, if the kick-starting toxins are removed and no longer in the patient's local environment, why do PD and MND continue to advance their grip on the body? Remembering those effected live in differing environments, both town and countryside all around the world?

In fact, we are probably more health and safety, green conscious today, than in the sixties; yet there is a rising trend, with more people effected by these conditions, and at a younger age too! Why?

Well, ponder this; We spend more time on our rears looking at TV or the PC, holding a poised position squeezing the moisture and bulk out of the discs in the spinal column; and then expect it to cope with pinpointed pressure, when we lazily yet hurriedly bend to lift our litter as the breeze blows it towards a puddle.

Through modern living, every day most of us stress our bodies; but when do we really stretch our spine, giving the discs the encouragement and physical space to re-hydrate and expand into, rather than expecting the daily water intake to be magically pumped back into the discs, ready for the next days hammering.

Yes, the research towards stopping the use of toxic substances is well worth every penny. However, whatever the kick-start is for each individual case, a change in lifestyle, with an increasing concentrated effort to decompress all those stresses away, may actually win the day and reverse the rising trend.

Advocating physiotherapy with prescribed exercises, that can then be undertaken by the patient at home, with the necessary check ups to ensure the treatment is successful (given the benefits I have felt), would appear to be the first step towards alleviating and perhaps in some cases curing such conditions.

In the short term, the increased costs in Physiotherapy for treating both, injury (including those without broken bone), and post surgery treatment of young and elderly alike, bearing in mind that some symptoms may appear years later; May well out weigh, the substantial and rising costs of more expensive Neurological intervention, with on going nursing costs, and the palliative care required when a patient's condition spirals to immobility.
