Do you fight, run, freeze or lack a response when a stressor strikes?
Knowing this tells you how to work with your nervous system.
A fight or run response = strong or possibly overactive nervous system.
(Note: a balanced nervous system would have urge to run or fight but would calm quickly)
A freeze, overwhelm or no response = a depleted system.
Overactive does best with herbs like…
- Holy Basil
- Low dose lithium
A depleted system does best with…
- Licorice root
- Cordyceps or Chaga Mushrooms
- American Ginseng
- Phosphatidyl Choline or Serine
- The Peptide Cerebrolysin
Both systems need electrolyte/ion support, magnesium, iodine and mineral support.
Nerve balancing exercises are also crucial for both types.
I often have clients fill out brain regionalization questionnaires to identify where there’s an imbalance.
Turns out a slight to major nerve imbalance over time can stress the nervous system.
When the imbalanced area of the brain is located as the imbalance I create a few minute morning routine to add to your morning.
Here’s an example: Standing on one leg to balance while tapping on your head with the finger tips of the opposite hand.
Work up to 5 minutes holding your balance while tapping!
Nerve challenge trainings are super fun and easy to incorporate into life.
Health should be fun, not exhausting!
The more you can stack little habits of health into your already solid routines the better off you’ll be.
