Our body possesses incredible self-healing mechanisms that we can activate by engaging the prefrontal cortex, calming down the limbic system, and utilizing the vagus nerve as a conduit for these signals.

The prefrontal cortex, often called the “thinking brain,” is responsible for decision-making and self-regulation. By training ourselves to engage this region more effectively, we can exert greater regulation over our responses to stress and adversity.

Learning techniques to calm down the limbic system, known as the “emotional brain,” helps us manage emotions and reduce the physiological effects of stress. This can involve practices like brain retraining, breathwork, or positive visualization.

Dr. Chris Lee on Instagram: "Let me know your thoughts. 

To finish up on the emotional aspect. 

It’s about finding the time to sit down and let the emotions through. It’s giving yourself space to feel even if the feelings don’t make sense. 

That feeling it out time gives you space to have more emotions in the future. Without emotional integration time we often live in a reactive state because that’s all the opportunities we give our nervous system to have. 

If you want more tools. Comment or dm “🦄” and I’ll send you the self regulation starter kit.

Dr. Taz MD on Instagram: "The emotion-hormone connection is well recognized in Eastern medicine, and as you can see, our hormones influence our emotions - and vice versa. We all experience these feelings at some point in our lives.
