Recently I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dr. Ann West on her show Truth From the Source on Glastonbury Radio, wherein I had the opportunity to explain in greater detail exactly what holistic approach means when working with individuals.
Listen to this interview now.
Somatic Dialogue and Neuro-linguistic Programming are two of the many effective stress reduction techniques I use. Somatic Dialogue allows me to identify exactly where in their body my client is holding onto fears, self judgment, blame and limiting beliefs that feed their inner saboteur. These negative beliefs and emotions can manifest in the body as tightness, tension, upset and dis-ease which can impair one’s performance and success both physically and mentally.
In working with law students preparing for the California State Bar exam, I found that it was not that they didn’t know the information, but that their worry, anxiety and panic about passing this big exam triggered an automatic response in their nervous system, called the fight or flight response.
Using neuro-linguistic programming I teach my client how to change old limiting beliefs into new thought patterns that support their goals in health, career, relationship and family.
Psycho-neuro-immunology (PNI) is the study of the interaction between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the human body. The immune system and the brain talk to each other through signaling pathways. Two major pathways are involved in this cross-talk: the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis) and the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The HPA axis is the body’s primary stress management system, responding to physical and mental challenge by controlling the body’s stress hormone levels called cortisol in an attempt to maintain their homeostasis.
With respect to couples having difficulty getting pregnant, many women and men hold onto unconscious fears, worries and limiting beliefs which feed inner saboteurs around getting pregnant. If the couple has already experienced a failed pregnancy, in-vitro implant or infant death, these worries and fears can create an on-going inner stress environment that compounds emotional stress and can weaken the reproductive system contributing to infertility.
