“I wrote a new story for my nervous system” — neurosculpting, neuroplasticity http://wp.me/p5nnb-aA5


Recommended Posts

This is so EXCITING. I listened to this with such complete and total delight. This interview with Lisa Wimberger is, in large part, what I have been creating for myself…not even understanding all aspects, which means that listening to this interview was BRAIN CANDY too. Lisa Wimberger talks about brain candy as being part of the healing process.

Psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome often results in a severe injury to the autonomic nervous system. Listen and learn. Hearing this explanation further helps and educates my own process. Again, exciting.

Also anyone with any trauma issues orautonomic nervous system issues may find this helpful. Many long term chronic health issues end up involving the nervous system as they are traumatic in many ways: Protracted psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome, chronic illness, CFS, Fibromyalgia. Yeah, they all have things in common.

I love how she talks about how the brain loves novelty. That is the cornerstone of what I do for myself. I find truth EVERYWHERE. Pieces of the puzzle everywhere. I am constantly rewriting and reformulating my story. And I love how she addresses these concepts…again, brain candy for me.

She is also talking about exercise, diet, meditation, and new habits…all things I talk about all the time in my own healing process are all critically important. I write about this at Mad in America: Everything Matters: a Memoir From Before, During and After Psychiatric Drugs. She is helping me bring together many things I’ve been working on. Articulating it in the most delightful way which will help further along my own process.
