AN OUT OF BALANCE NERVOUS SYSTEM: The Possible Root of Your Symptoms

business_stress fuse-box-cartoon_full

Feeling like you have blown a fuse or are ready to lose it? Do you suffer from ‘road rage’? You are not alone. Modern day stressors can accumulate, and like an electrical overload blows your fuse box; blows your nervous system out of balance.  Physical stressors like toxins, air pollution, overwork and over exertion plus mental and emotional stressors add up causing your nervous system and brain chemistry to become unbalanced or blown,

According to Better Health Thru Research: Restoring Health by Restoring Balance  “The brain is like a main fuse box where all electricity goes through. Like a circuit breaker in a building. If we over load the circuit we blow the fuse. As stress enters into our minds, (storing up stress memory), our communication system begins to shut down. Did you ever over load an electrical circuit? I am sure you have or someone you know did. This is how the brain and mind works. If we overload our mind and body with to much stress, we will blow a fuse and shut off electricity or (information) to the rest of the building (body). “

As a practitioner I see many clients presenting with many health concerns and symptoms. Over the years it has become more apparent that the root of their health challenges is often due to stress overloading the nervous system, often leading to an  imbalance between the brain and the two systems in the body. The sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, parts of the autonomic nervous system, work together to maintain balance in the body allowing your organs and systems to work properly. When the balance between the brain and the two systems is lost, symptoms occur.

There are many factors that can knock your life and ultimately your brain, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system out of balance.

This type of imbalance usually comes with chronic stress and anxiety and a flow of stress hormones; that like acid, chews at your organs, endocrines, body parts, blood brain barrier and systems; and leaves the body pH acidic with accompanying symptoms.

The root of the presenting symptoms can usually be tracked back to imbalances in your life. You can read more about this in my blog post LIFE BALANCE: The Well-being Root  and STRESS IDLING: A Modern Day Challenge

The Well-being Root-1

Through neuromuscularbiofeedback assessments I provide clients with valuable insights into the cause of their stressors and imbalances . You can read more about this in my blog post THE WEAK LIST: A Necessary Well-being Tool  and my web page on health forensics. Energy balancing strategies can help your body to reset your nervous system and restore your desired ‘cool, calm and collected’ you. Learn how to reset your blown nervous system using my holistic protocol and the energy balancing strategies in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION.

The valuable information that I provide my clients with usually requires them to either STOP, START OR CHANGE something in their lifestyle or diet.  Once clients make the required changes and their life and body’s balance are restored – the symptoms will ultimately subside. Simple? Yes and no! My clients share how making the required changes with the information provided during their BODYFEEDBACK INTERVIEW AND THERAPY sessions and through my holistic protocol in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION provides them with improved health.

You too can have better health.  More is possible! Possible is doable by you!

Let me help you enjoy improved health!

Protect your brain, nervous system, body brain barrier and body from the harmful, acid like effects, of stress hormones. Eating healthy and using natural products are great steps to ‘a healthier you’. So many people are chronically hurting themselves by allowing the ongoing flow of stress hormones to damage their  bodies.

Consider implementing life balancing strategies and adding self-help therapies, like essential oil therapy, to help you balance your life and your nervous system. Find out more about using these therapeutic oils for a variety of health conditions by contacting me.

DEPRESSION FREE: Tips to Get You There

handstand

You have probably already tried many strategies in your battle to eliminate depression. I suffered major bouts of depression in the past as well as melancholy. I was told by doctors that I would have to be on medications for the rest of my life. It took me a lot of years of research and trial and error approaches to achieve 100% depression free status, to where I feel upbeat and happy. The strategies that finally worked to lift my ‘depression blind’ permanently, were not the traditional approach. I did try the medically prescribed treatments in my journey to become depression free – they did not work for me and made me feel like not wanting to live. I am not advocating that you stop your medications.  There are many strategies that you can combine with medications.

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG

Although every person’s journey through depression is unique, each depression equation shares common denominators. Your depression equation’s road blocks, pitfalls and unanswered questions share many of the same ‘common’ denominators’ as another person’s. A common denominator is a commonly shared theme or trait; also a common element in a mathematical equation. In math class you learn to rewrite your math equations to change the answer. You can rewrite your depression equation by subtracting out or cancelling the well-being challenging contributing factors; and adding in powerful strategies to promote healing and restore normal brain chemistry to eliminate your depression.

Here are some quick tips to get you started:

  • Understand your body’s potentially harmful chemical equation and factors that may interfere with your brain chemistry.  Where can you learn more?

  • Diffuse essential oils to improve mood. The diffuser would be an excellent add on at home, school and the office to dissipate stress and improve productivity and mood.

Before you proceed to implement any of the above strategies – talk to your regular healthcare provider.  Transitioning from depression and anxiety to 100% depression free using these strategies requires time and the supervision of an open minded, informed practitioner. DO NOT STOP TAKING YOUR PRESCRIBED MEDICATION. These strategies do help to promote depression free living. I have been able to duplicate the same 100% depression free status with my clients using these and additional holistic strategies.

NATURAL CURES: Protecting and Repairing Your Blood Brain Barrier to Restore Mental Health

WHAT-COULD-POSSIBLY-GO-WRONG

Is Your Blood Brain Barrier Intact? Could It Be A Factor In Your Mental Health?

Mental illness is a scary condition. I have personally ‘been there’ several times.  One in 4 people will be affected by some kind of mental condition this year and 1 in 5 people will suffer from depression and anxiety. Those statistics are extremely concerning, mostly because these conditions can precipitate suicide.  My heart goes out to all persons who are affected by mental conditions, directly or indirectly.  Since I am now 100% free of depression; I feel compelled to share what I have learned – so that you can reap the same symptom free status. I work with clients with various health challenges including depression using my holistic protocol to help them eliminate their symptoms.

A healthy, properly functioning blood brain barrier is crucial to mental health. Understanding your blood brain barrier (BBB) is one of  the first steps to restore your mental health.

The blood brain barrier is made up of a layer of cells, including endothelial cells, that fit together tightly so that harmful and unwanted substances cannot pass out of the bloodstream. Some substances, like glucose, are allowed to pass through.

A healthy blood brain barrier:

  • protects the brain from ‘foreign and harmful substances’ in the blood, as well as hormones and neurotransmitters. These substances can alter brain and body chemistry. What is your brain/body’s chemical equation made up of?
  • prevents large molecule substances from passing through to the brain
  • prevents low lipid (fat) soluble molecules from penetrating into the brain (some drugs rapidly cross through into the brain)
  • slows down highly charged electrical molecules

Identifying Factors That Damage or Compromise Your Blood Brain Barrier

There are many factors with the potential to compromise your blood brain barrier – altering your brain/body chemistry and normal brain function.

  • high blood pressure opens/compromises the BBB.
  • developmental challenges (pollution/distress in utero and birth) compromise the BBB
  • microwaves open/compromise the BBB
  • high concentrations of substances (e.g. alcohol, drugs, chemicals) in the blood can open/compromise the BBB
  • brain/body pollution can open/compromise the BBB
  • environmental toxins (e.g. neurotoxins – found in fragrances, air fresheners, laundry, personal care and cleaning products, air pollution) can open/compromise the BBB
  • radiation opens/compromises the BBB
  • infection and viruses open/compromise the BBB
  • inflammation opens/compromises the BBB
  • restricted blood flow compromises the BBB
  • trauma compromises the BBB
  • chronic stress hormone production compromises the BBB

HOW’S YOUR BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER DOING?

Did you know that lead can cross a healthy blood brain barrier? I found that out the hard way. I pumped leaded gasoline at my father’s service station as a teenager. Lead has been connected to depression and memory difficulties. Imagine what other unwanted substances might be crossing your blood brain barrier regularly.

Where does all the lead come from? Check out these sources http://www.health.ny.gov/environmental/lead/sources.htm.

Where do all the other harmful substances come from that can harm and pass through your blood brain barrier?http://www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/bodypollution.pdf

How do you get lead and other harmful substances out? You’ll find out at the end of the post.

Protecting and Repairing Your Blood Brain Barrier

Now that you understand the importance of a healthy blood brain barrier to mental health, you will be better equipped to start implementing strategies that can cure your condition.

The second step requires implementing strategies to protect and repair your BBB and rewrite your mental health equation. Collectively these will provide you with the natural cures to restore your mental health.  In my personal journey to become 100% depression free,  I used specific natural strategies and supplements therapeutically.  The natural strategies included detoxification, mind/body healing, neuromuscular biofeedback, visualization, rejuvenation, herbs, nutrition, goal setting and changing limiting beliefs into surpassing beliefs – a holistic health methodology.

Certain vegetables have been shown to help repair the blood brain barrier. I provide a customized holistic protocol email consultation package which includes diet changes to promote blood brain barrier repair. Contact me to get started.

Dealing with depression requires a good understanding of exogenous and endogenous contributing factors. Each mental illness equation shares common denominators that can be eliminated using a holistic health approach.  Learn more  about these. My holistic protocol which includes information on detoxification and natural strategies for better health can be found in my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION

Targeted, customized visualizations like body scan visualization #10 in THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION can help you restore your blood brain barrier and brain chemistry. The blood brain barrier is semi-permeable and should only allow some things to pass through.  Think of it like a sieve that is only supposed to allow some things to pass.  Damage can allow other substances to pass through causing unwanted symptoms.  You may have noticed unwanted symptoms after eating out or spending time in areas with poor air quality. This could indicate that you have a compromised blood brain barrier.  

Essential oils can help to repair the blood brain barrier and the brain for healthy brain function. I provide a customized holistic protocol email consultation package which includes essential oil therapy and other natural strategies (including specific supplement recommendations) necessary to promote blood brain barrier repair. Contact me to get started.

Essential oils that help the brain for any conditions:

brain essential oils

Frankincense is the essential oil of choice for any kind of brain disorder. Frankincense has a molecular makeup that includes sesquiterpenes, that is able to cross the blood/brain barrier. These sesquiterpenes stimulate the limbic system of the brain and other glands within the brain, promoting memory and releasing emotions. There are additional oils that help to promote brain repair. I provide a customized holistic protocol email consultation package which includes essential oil therapy to promote blood brain barrier repair. Contact me to get started.
