Where physiological functions are impaired due to a breakdown in biochemical activity of the intracellular organelle, and nerve function, Wedge believes that is feasible to attempt to therapeutically re-activate those physiological functions electronically by the use of SONS therapy. The main object of SONS is to deliver the electrical impulses to activate the Alzheimer's afflicted brain and reset the function of the CNS at the neuronal and synaptic level (by increasing the electrical conductivity and by reducing the inflammation).
These nerve fibers located in the olfactory mucosa are directly connected to the brain (entorhinal cortex) and memory centers; sphenopalatine ganglion located in the upper part of the nasal roof at the entrance to the sphenoid sinus (a major parasympathetic center) and the 10 cranial nerve trunks in the sphenoid sinus walls; pituitary gland that are connected to the front and the base of the brain, and brain stem by millions of electrical conducting nerve fibers.
Restoration of normal function of the CNS by transmitting the electrical impulses using the SONS System is the most important physiological function. Using this method, the effects are many and it encompasses every neurophysiologic occurrence, and event that is found in the nervous system. The electrical activity generated by the SONS therapy may be similar to electrical activity associated with the biological release of a neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine which generate electrical activity that is translated into various neurological activities including memory and recall.
