What is trauma exactly? Or the ever-elusive concept known as the "flow state"? It can all be explained by the autonomic nervous system - our body's autopilot that keeps our heart beating, our lungs breathing, and our gut digesting; without us even thinking about it. The Polyvagal Theory is a new understanding of how our nervous system works, and explains everything from trauma, to the very essence of social behavior; while shedding light on possible treatments for autism and trauma. You'll never think of your body and brain the same way again.

Are you struggling with chronic illness, PTSD, and depression? Are you chronically fighting with illnesses like anxiety, inflammation, fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue? If so, you've found the right book. Learning about the polyvagal theory is learning about the science of security, the science of feeling safe enough to fall in love with life, and take the risk of living. The polyvagal theory provides a physiological and psychological understanding of how and why patients move through a continuous cycle of mobilization, disconnection, and commitment. Through the lens of the polyvagal theory, we see the role of the autonomic nervous system as it shapes patient safety experiences and influences their ability to connect. The autonomic nervous system does not respond to the challenges of everyday life by telling us what we are or who we are, but by telling us how we are. This system manages the risk and creates connection patterns by changing our physiological state. These changes can be slight for many people, and, at times, when there are significant changes of state, their system is resilient enough to help them return to a regulated state. Trauma disrupts the process of building the autonomous circuit of secure connection and diverts the development of regulation and resilience. Patients with a traumatic history often experience more intense and extreme autonomic responses, which affects their ability to regulate and feel safe in relationships. This book helps everybody to incorporate polyvagal theory into daily life. It provides a comprehensive approach to the intervention by presenting ways to map the autonomous response and configure the autonomic nervous system for safety. With this book, the polyvagal theory is at your disposal, and empirical records and exercises either. In this book, you will find: The Benefits of Vagus Nerve How to Stimulate the Vagus Nerve to Relieve Stress How to Improve the functioning of your body How to Daily Activate Your Vagus Nerve Several Vagus Exercises Anxiety Exercises to relieve the pain The book puts a lot of emphasis on friendship with the nervous system, presents the science of connection, and provides an essential fluency in the language of polyvagal theory. These chapters set out the crucial elements of the method, build a solid knowledge base, and set the stage for working with the clinical applications presented in the rest of the book. With this book, you will learn how to stimulate your Vagus Nerve with practical self-help exercises. You will overcome Anxiety, Chronic Illness, Depression, PTSD, Inflammation, and more with remedies that are already present in your body. ➚ Scroll up and click on "Buy Now"!

In the event that polyvagal theory sounds as energizing as watching paint dry, stay, trust me. It's an intriguing clarification of how our body handles enthusiastic pressure, and how we can utilize various treatments to revise the impact of the injury. Before polyvagal theory, our sensory system was envisioned as a two-section hostile framework, with more initiation flagging not so much quieting but rather more quieting flagging less enactment. Polyvagal theory recognizes a third sort of sensory system reaction that Porges calls the social commitment framework, a perky blend of enactment and quieting that works out of exceptional nerve impact.

Outlining a new, optimistic way to understand autism, this concise and accessible book offers practical ideas to help children on the spectrum grow. The Polyvagal Theory suggests autism is a learnt response by the body - a result of the child being in a prolonged state of 'fight or flight' while their nervous system is still developing. This book explains the theory in simple terms and incorporates recent developments in brain plasticity research (the capacity of the brain to change throughout life) to give parents and professionals the tools to strengthen the child's brain-body connection and lessen the social and emotional impact of autism.

How do we define compassion? Is it an emotional state, a motivation, a dispositional trait, or a cultivated attitude? How does it compare to altruism and empathy? Chapters in this Handbook present critical scientific evidence about compassion in numerous conceptions. All of these approaches to thinking about compassion are valid and contribute importantly to understanding how we respond to others who are suffering. Covering multiple levels of our lives and self-concept, from the individual, to the group, to the organization and culture, The Oxford Handbook of Compassion Science gathers evidence and models of compassion that treat the subject of compassion science with careful scientific scrutiny and concern. It explores the motivators of compassion, the effect on physiology, the co-occurrence of wellbeing, and compassion training interventions. Sectioned by thematic approaches, it pulls together basic and clinical research ranging across neurobiological, developmental, evolutionary, social, clinical, and applied areas in psychology such as business and education. In this sense, it comprises one of the first multidisciplinary and systematic approaches to examining compassion from multiple perspectives and frames of reference. With contributions from well-established scholars as well as young rising stars in the field, this Handbook bridges a wide variety of diverse perspectives, research methodologies, and theory, and provides a foundation for this new and rapidly growing field. It should be of great value to the new generation of basic and applied researchers examining compassion, and serve as a catalyst for academic researchers and students to support and develop the modern world.

Vagus Nerve

This is an apt description as the vagus nerve impacts in some way nearly every organ in the body. The vagus nerve is part of the body's parasympathetic nervous system.

DescriptionDo you want to learn how to activate your vagus nerve, unleash your body's natural ability to healing yourself? If yes, then keep reading...The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body, reaching out from the brain stem as a pair of nerves, one for controlling each side of the body. It got its name from the Latin word for wanderer (vagus) because it wanders throughout the entire body. This is an apt description as the vagus nerve impacts in some way nearly every organ in the body. The vagus nerve is part of the body's parasympathetic nervous system. It provides you with the fight or flight instinct when presented with some sort of sudden, unexpected, or threatening situation. As part of the parasympathetic portion of the autonomic nervous system, the vagus nerve acts as an inhibitor for the sympathetic system, providing a counterbalance to the initial panic from the sympathetic system, and allowing the body to calm down. The vagus nerve's motor functions extend to the medulla oblongata - where autonomic responses are regulated by the brain, while its sensory functions are directly tied to the cranial neural crest, where the body's facial muscles reside. This means the vagus nerve is informed and impacted by the very gestures of our face. The vagus nerve is connected to the neuroception system of the body which helps us gather information to determine the safety of our environment on an unconscious level.

We usually think of the brain as being the originator of all information regarding our surroundings, but really it is the individual systems that begin the process, such as the eyes that see telling us what our surroundings look like, ears that hear telling us what sounds are nearby, the nose gathering in and reacting to scents constantly, and the taste buds on the tongue telling us what we need to know about the food we put in our mouth. Skin receptors tell us what the air feels like, what we are touching at the time, and many other things that we only pick up on a subconscious level. The vagus nerve can be damaged by diabetes, upper respiratory viral infections, alcoholism, or through an accident during an operation. Stress, fatigue, anxiety, and even bad posture can also have a negative impact on the vagus nerve. Do you want to know more on how to prevent it?

h1>Description Do you want to learn how to activate your vagus nerve, unleash your body's natural ability to healing yourself? If yes, then keep reading...The vagus nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body, reaching out from the brain stem as a pair of nerves, one for controlling each side of the body. It got its name from the Latin word for wanderer (vagus) because it wanders throughout the entire body. This is an apt description as the vagus nerve impacts in some way nearly every organ in the body. The vagus nerve is part of the body's parasympathetic nervous system. It provides you with the fight or flight instinct when presented with some sort of sudden, unexpected, or threatening situation. As part of the parasympathetic portion of the autonomic nervous system, the vagus nerve acts as an inhibitor for the sympathetic system, providing a counterbalance to the initial panic from the sympathetic system, and allowing the body to calm down. The vagus nerve's motor functions extend to the medulla oblongata - where autonomic responses are regulated by the brain, while its sensory functions are directly tied to the cranial neural crest, where the body's facial muscles reside. This means the vagus nerve is informed and impacted by the very gestures of our face. The vagus nerve is connected to the neuroception system of the body which helps us gather information to determine the safety of our environment on an unconscious level. This book covers the following topics: How can stress and anxiety affect your body and life?
