About Hormones and Neurotransmitters

Next class: November 19

If your hormones are out of whack, you can be stressed, anxious, exhausted, amped up, generally feeling out of sorts....we all know that!

But what can you do about it?  The more you know in this area, the more effective you are in your clinical results!

Working in a system of mind-body medicine that resets and harmonizes communication pathways in the body, BodyTalk Mind-Body medicine, it is essential to understand the body's communicators, the hormones and neurotransmitters. This field is constantly evolving as wide webs of communication are discovered everywhere in the body.

Join me in my series to meet the communicators and learn how to reset their imbalances. From my research background in hormone biology, I pull upon this science frequently in my clinical work, and find it an essential for every healthcare practitioner. 

  • Intro: Hormones and Neurotransmitter Essentials

    • The essentials of hormones and neurotransmitters for healthcare practitioners. up to date information from the latest research.  
      • Sunday October 22nd, 9am - 1pm
  • Communicators of Stress and Relaxation

    • If your patient is too stressed, healing and repair is biologically impossible!
      • We have two modes of the nervous system that are like the gas and the brakes of the car. You cannot simultaneously drive your nervous system in both modes, you are either in stress (sympathetic) or relaxation (parasympathetic) mode. In stress mode, you are ready to fight back and run for your life when you are under threat. In relaxation mode, all healing and regeneration happens. BodyTalk has numerous strategies to accomplish this relaxation reset to facilitate the body's natural ability to repair and heal - Learn them here in an easy to use toolkit!
      • Oh, but it's a bit more complicated than that! There are now known to be two different types of stress modes: stress as challenge and stress as threat.
