Lately I’ve been doing a lot of learning about the parasympathetic nervous system (our rest + digest state) opposed to the sympathetic state (fight or flight), which I felt stuck in at one point on my vestibular something journey.
Back then (and now) I used an anti-inflammatory diet, certified pure therapeutic grade oils and meditation to stimulate the parasympathetic state.
It takes a lot of energy to heal, so I was giving my mind and body a lot of love. We need to be in the parasympathetic state to promote blissful healing.
Let’s take this a step further:

We can stimulate this state through lifestyle medicine. In my latest video I talk through this deeper…
