How to Regulate An Overwhelmed, Fearful & Anxious Nervous System.
It's finally here, two years in the making (you've been watching my content unfold on social media, newsletters, blogs & talks), our new 21 day online program created to help you regulate your distressed nervous system using wholefoods, naturopathic & lifestyle wisdom through the lens of Polyvagal Theory.
The Polyvagal Theory explains three different parts of your nervous system and their responses to stressful situations - fight & flight, freeze and social engagement (rest & digest). The nervous system is your personal security system - constantly surveilling the scene. It’s purpose is protection and connection. Move towards, move away, freeze or regulate. Befriending your nervous system positions you in a place of response vs reaction, when it comes to stress.
“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.” ― Deepak Chopra.
Adrenal burnout, disease, fatigue, the fight/flight/freeze response activation - there’s a lot of ways we identify what is essentially a symptom of a modern life we haven’t evolved to live. It’s a state of being unregulated in our stress response, a place where we can no longer relax, find peace or switch off. The always busy, always on mode of living life is often modelled to us early on, which only serves to make it feel even more impossible to conceive of a different way of living. Yet we all have the inner workings and wisdom to live a different life, to switch into a state that allows us to be more present, more compassionate, more loving – for ourselves and for those around us.
Inspired by a wildly stressful time and the loss of my company in the most unexpected way, right in the middle of Covid. This led me down a path to better understanding how I found myself in such a position, how & why I lost my bearings, my compass, my grounding and how in overwhelm, fear & anxiety I couldn't see the forest for the trees.
I will be teaching you how I came through for the better, by healing present & past traumas and befriending the incredible nervous system. When in distress, your nervous system can keep you looping in more stress & illness expressed as lowered immunity, gut issues, HBP, fatigue, hormone imbalance, inflammation, insomnia, depression or chronic illness that just won't shift. When regulated your nervous system can support healing, create energy & clarity, provide perspective, possibilities & joy.
By using wholefoods, naturopathic & lifestyle wisdom via the lens of polyvagal theory, this program will help bring you back to your most regulated, grounded & healthiest state of being. Day by day, I will be teaching you everything I have learn't & healed in my life thus far.
