To truly thrive
the key is...
in your BRAIN
In order to effectively:
Integrate new information quickly and learn from previous experiences
Make solid, constructive decisions
Communicate effectively, respectfully and with compassion
Be able to focus, concentrate, plan and carry through your goals to completion
Feel joy, peace and ease
Handle stress constructively and have emotional resilience
Have the capacity for deep meditation, spiritual opening and access to flow states
you need an optimally functioning brain.
If you are having difficulty navigating everyday life and unable to rise above merely striving for survival, it's important to look back and see how you got to be where you are now. You may have learned suboptimal patterns of coping and relating during your formative years; or used substances that left their mark in your brain; or have genetics that make you vulnerable to anxiety, depression and/or learning difficulties; or may have a diet deficient in brain-supportive nutrients.... Or, you may have experienced childhood trauma, a head injury, exposure to toxic substances, chronic stress, or a variety of other insults.
What's most important is to see what keeps you stuck in self-sabotage or suboptimal function, and know that because the brain is pliable and capable of recovery, there are now novel tools that can help you break free from these patterns - even many that were previously seen as fixed problems and indelible scars.
Profound transformation is possible through the use of neurotherapy, rahanni healing and body-centered trauma work in the context of a functional medicine supportive framework. I have witnessed this in my loved ones and clients and have experienced it myself.
Moreover, in these times of turbulent change where the stakes are high for surviving as a race on this planet, I believe it is paramount that we each devote some focus and effort into becoming better versions of ourselves to be better able to contribute towards a more sustainable life on this planet for all.
