If you have been in my world long enough you know that I am passionate about brain retraining and how it can have a transformative impact on your mental and physical health. So what is brain retraining exactly and how can it actually benefit you?
Brain Retraining Defined
Brain retraining sounds a little intimidating at first, but it is a lot more accessible than you think. As a practitioner I work with clients daily to help rewire their brain and heal them. So what is brain retraining?
Brain retraining is essentially various methods that use a combination of techniques and mind-body modalities that clients integrate over a period of time in order to gradually rewire the limbic brain and eliminate troubling symptoms.
Who can benefit from brain retraining?
- Kids and teens that struggle in school
- Individuals in a life transition
- Those that struggle with chronic illness
- Busy individuals with anxiety or depression
In short, everyone can benefit from brain retraining and it can be a powerful tool in creating transformational healing.
In the course of our life we endure intense events that can be categorized as “traumatic” or impactful and those moments shape the makeup of our brain. It is the psychological stress that triggers changes to our neuroplasticity.
When given the right tools, we know now that the brain has an amazing capacity to repair and renew neural pathways that are no longer working for a person.
Neuroplasticity + Illness
Neuroplasticity is the mechanism that allows the brain to repair and restore itself. Neuroplasticity is a vital component to the learning process. The brain has the ability to “rewire” itself when there are new learned experiences. I hope you can find it reassuring to know that your brain is not stuck in its state. There is hope and healing and there are tools that can help you achieve the healing you want to cultivate. Neuroplasticity can be used in a way that helps you overcome past stressful or traumatic experiences. If you have struggled with mood changes, brain fog, or memory impairment from an illness, brain retraining can help you. Chronic infections, stressors, or exposures can harm the brain by activating the limbic system. However, brain retraining programs can give you a way to calm an overactive limbic system.
