You are NOT Hardwired – You Can Change
You can rewire the cause of your anxiety – and replace it with calmness and peace of mind.
As an anxiety sufferer, this exciting information CAN be the beginning of your whole world changing.
The truth about Anxiety and the role of NEUROPLASTICITY
This information could change your world!
Neuroplasticity is the brains ability to reorganise itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve Cells) in the brain to compensate for injury, disease and psychological problems including anxiety, and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.
Brain reorganisation takes place by mechanisms such as “axonal sprouting” in which undamaged axons grow new nerve endings to reconnect neurons whose links were injured or severed. Undamaged axons can also sprout nerve endings and connect with other undamaged nerve cells, forming new neural pathways to accomplish a needed function. This is by no means a new philosophy. It has been around since the early 1800’s.
This challenges the philosophy that the adult brain is formed and static, or hard wired. THIS IS NOT TRUE.
So what does this really mean? It means that the brain is plastic and can easily change!!!!!
Wow how amazing is that. WE CAN CHANGE ANYTHING
SCARY yes – it can only occur when the change is structured, willed and repeated – to create a new pathway.
This is the crux of the PEACE OF MIND PATHWAY. It is a pathway to start changing the brain pathways to suit whatever it is that you need to function optimally.
ANXIETY in this model is purely brain wiring that has hit a dead end and has to find other pathways to achieve the goal. Sometimes it does achieve the goal – HOWEVER at a huge emotional, mental or physiological cost. Sometimes it does not achieve the goal, causing anxiety and even depression.
Knowing how to rearrange the malfunctioning neurological pathways is simple, structured and highly effective when the steps are followed and repeated.
In the Peace of Mind Pathway – you will be rearranging the pathways that have caused you problems. Firstly we will examine which of these pathways are causing the electrical “shorts” and then rewire them to create new ones to enable you to function and perform at your optimum, level. You will eradicate the old ones causing you pain, anxiety and a life which is not satisfying and change to a life you deserve and the one you dreamt about . . .
This CAN be done. It DOES WORK.
YOU CAN DO IT – by following the steps and repeating them.
They are not random, they work specifically at different levels of the brain to allow change gently.
SO how does the Peace of Mind Pathway use neuroplasticity to ensure that new neurological pathways are developed, strengthened, reinforced and repeated to ensure new patterns to support the new anti-anxiety functioning of the brain/body.
It does so by laying solid foundation building blocks, upon which to build the new Anxiety Free Life.
1. Supplements that are changing the deep internal functions of the body and mind.
2. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day so you are not dehydrated. Dehydration causes malfunctioning of the neurons.
3. Exercising regularly to release blockages in your pathways and getting the oxygen and neurons to flow more freely.
4. Changing diet – eliminating gluten and sugar. Two substances that block or misfire neurons and can create chaos. Once the rewiring is complete these can be reintroduced sometimes with no problems.
5. Meditation is the first step into MINDFULNESS. It slows the pathways that sometimes race us into trouble and keep us stuck in the same patterns that created the problems in the first place.
6. Specific movements to encourage new neurological pathways.
Once these basic blocks are in place. The pathway then looks at individual anxiety stressors and patterns. With the solid foundation in place the other modalities practiced in the Peace of Mind Pathway easily deals with the transition to new pathways, habits and patterns. This explain show you are using neuroplasticity to ensure the changes are lasting and stay with you as a new way of dealing with any future issues which may arise.
USE YOUR BRAIN – don’t let it use you.
Take back control of your own life.
