Do you remember a time in your life when you were so excited or nervous or scared that you could literally feel it in your body? Maybe you had “butterflies in your stomach” before a first date or your heart was racing, or you felt nauseous and lightheaded.
What about when you had a deadline or a big presentation at work, or a loved one was injured…
There’s no doubt that there’s a strong connection between the brain, our hormones, and our immune system. This is called the neuroendocrine immune system and suggests that our past and present-day external and internal stimuli and stressors have a profound influence over our day-day health and long-term well-being.
In today’s conversation, I catch up with Dr. Jason Kolber, a highly sought-after chiropractic doctor and creator of the nervous system enhancement method for radical recovery. Having worked with numerous professional sports organization and athletes as well as everyday Janes and Joes, Dr. J has seen first hand the negative relationship between our self-imposed, perceived stressors and the impact on our physiology, from tight and restricted muscles, to anxiety and depression, to the dependency for OTC drugs to help suppress these powerful emotions.
As a lifelong healer, Dr. Jason has worked tirelessly to not only help his clientele through physical dysfunction, but has recently formulated an all-natural supplement to support the reduction of anxiety and onset of sleep after seeing many of his athletes struggling with tough travel schedules and the pressures of their day to day profession to help them, and all of us, wind down.
From fight or flight to rest and digest, we could all use a little more time in our day to take a strategic pause, a bit more reflection, and a conscious approach to being more proactive about our health by living with realistic expectations of our strengths and weaknesses and embracing the power of our sensitive neuroendocrine immune system.
