This week in my clinic I have been working a lot with the nervous system, as this is an integral part of holistic healing.
If a person is experiencing IBS, bloating or inflammation -it isn't enough to simply remove foods which are aggravating the symptoms, or adding in supplements.
We need to get into the ROOT of the issue - asking WHY is there inflammation present in the first place?
The answer lies in the nervous system.
Using Stephen Porges' Polyvagal theory - our autonomic nervous system is constantly surveilling and responding to our environment, and according to the polyvagal theory, has 3 main modes of response.
