Have you been facing feelings of anxiety for a long time now? Have you been fighting depressing feelings, and wondering if everything is or will be alright with you in the end? *** New version *** Release date: 04-30-20. The book was revised, modified and improved. Statistics have shown that some of the highest causes of death in the world are anxiety, depression and feelings of boredom and loneliness. Our world has become one of survival of the fittest. People wake up in the morning with countless activities lined up for the day that often consume the time meant for resting and self-reflection. We go to our jobs and work hard until late in the evening and sometimes head to other events before going home for the night. When it comes to managing issues such as anxiety and stress, there are a number of things that come to mind. However, the Polyvagal Theory which was expounded by Stephen Porges and Stanley Rosenberg would turn out to be one of the best guides out there. This book will thus focus on these theories and provide many keys and tools from which to choose. Some of these will include: ● Learning the various parts of the autonomic nervous system and how they influence certain reactions ● Understanding the various reactions humans are prone to when faced with various challenging circumstances ● Learning how the polyvagal theory can be applied in your life ● Understanding how the polyvagal theory affects the management of autism and stress in general. Depression, like most mental disorders, is a malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. People suffering from depression have a sustained level of stress that keeps them unsettled and agitated. They feel a lack of motivation and drive, and their sleep is unrefreshing no matter how long it is. Normally, the vagus system uses the vagal brake to reduce the heart rate and stabilize the breathing patterns, but traumatic experiences impair the brake and leave the person in a state of imbalance. What can a person experiencing depression or trauma do in such a situation? Autism is a disorder that affects a person's communication, interests, and social interactions. The polyvagal theory shows us that autistic individuals are unable to communicate, interact with people or analyze social data normally. As a result, their bodies often read fight-flight-freeze responses and shut down. During childhood, their body remains in immobilization mode. The consequence is that they become agitated, have difficulties digesting food, and their interactions with the outside community is distorted. Their social engagement system has not been fully integrated. This condition may occur as a result of emotional trauma, fear at birth, or their vagus nerve was silence or damaged, leading to their nervous system not fully developing. So how does the polyvagal theory and Stanley Rosenberg's theory apply to them? Luckily, there are a lot of quick-and-easy ways to activate and exercise the nerve, strengthening its function and restoring your body to good health. Packed with easy-to-follow exercises and activities, this book will show you how to unlock the power of the vagus nerve to heal your body and get back to a state of balance. At the end of this book, we believe that you will have complete knowledge of the polyvagal theory and will be able to apply it to your life efficiently and effectively.
