Welcome to our new How To Regulate An Overwhelmed, Fearful & Anxious Nervous System Online Program

A self study online program created using naturopathic wisdom, holistic medicine & the polyvagal theory. Now with videos, written lessons, journal prompts and course books.

Long term stress has real consequences in our minds and bodies.

I’ve seen this in my clinical practice for the last 28 years. In a culture of relentless indoctrination of productivity and perfectionism, we keep pushing through the stress and bounce between fight, flight, and freeze.  

We control stress by striving, even more, working harder, trying harder, and perfecting. We rely on caffeine and sugar to push us through. Yet, with all this pushing, rushing, and doing, stress makes a home in our minds and bodies

We experience chronic illness, muscle tightness, wear and tear, pain and inflammation, sleeplessness, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, immune dysregulation and fatigue, and damage from using excessive uppers and downers to cope - caffeine, drugs, alcohol, and food. Shut down or burn out, is our body saying we need to rest more. 

Has stress:

  • Overwhelmed you?
  • Changed your behaviour?
  • Brought on health problems?
  • Hampered healing?
  • Created more suffering and dysregulation?

Do you feel safe, resourced, and supported, or do you feel frustrated, restless, anxious, alienated, and displaced? If the latter, it may be time to focus on inhabiting a safe, regulated, and healed mind, body, and soul.

Please note: this program does not replace therapy and treatment with your psychologist/psychiatrist. It is an adjunct program that helps you create a foundation of health for regulation & deep healing.

Stress is Insidious

It draws on our reserves.

  • Nourish your nervous system with whole seasonal foods; good hydration; fresh, clean air; sunlight; movement; a good night's sleep; and rest.

  • Learn how to flexibly transition between the different states of your nervous system - fight, flight, freeze & regulated.

Dealing with Stress

The goal of dealing with stress is not to simply suffer in silence or avoid it altogether.

  • It is important to bring attention and awareness to your nervous system and the physical and emotional responses that arise as a result of stress.

  • It is also essential to learn how to transition flexibly between different states of the nervous system and to build up your health reserves.

  • It is also essential to do the deeper work of healing wounds and traumas that may be contributing to stress and dysregulation.

Regulating Your Nervous System

Take a holistic approach to managing your stress symptoms - using foods as medicine, herbal medicine and supplements.

  • Eliminate the need for addictive substances such as caffeine, alcohol, and sugar to make you feel energised and on top of things.

  • Reset your gut biome & digestive processes to support your gut brain axis.

  • Breathing plays a crucial role in regulating your nervous system.

Your Personal Security System

Your nervous system is constantly surveilling the scene. Its purpose is protection and connection.

  • Move towards, move away, freeze or regulate.

  • Befriending your nervous system positions you in a place of response vs. reaction when it comes to stress.

Honour and Validate All Your Emotions

Learn how to protect your energy.

  • Create healthy habits and rituals to support a regulated nervous system.

  • Heal, ground, create energy, have clarity, perspective, and possibilities, and experience joy when regulated.

Learn How Your Nervous System Works

Your Food & Fluid Choices Affect Your Nervous System

  • The gut and the brain are connected through the gut-brain axis, meaning the health of one directly impacts the other. Certain foods like fatty fish, green leafy vegetables, and blueberries, known for their anti-inflammatory properties, can support a well-functioning nervous system.

  • Staying well-hydrated is crucial for all bodily functions as lack of fluids can lead to dehydration, impairing neuron function and triggering symptoms of anxiety and overwhelm.

Your Lifestyle Choices Affect Your Nervous System

  • Learn the science of restful sleep for optimal nervous system function and experience relief from anxiety and overwhelm with improved sleep quality.

  • Find out how regular physical exercise can boost the production of endorphins - the body's natural mood lifters.

  • Deepen your understanding about how mindful breathing exercises stimulate the body's relaxation response, helping to calm an overwhelmed nervous system. They directly interact with the autonomic nervous system, aiding in stress and anxiety management.

  • Discover the potential of herbal remedies to calm your nervous system and the benefits of handpicked supplements that promise tranquility and equilibrium.

How to learn the tools to help you thrive.

by Kate.S

This course was life changing for me. I was able to build on the spiritual work I have done to be more present in my life. It gave me an understanding of poly vagal theory. I was able to separate out the functions of my nervous system- fight, flight, freeze, fawn ... and for the first time I understood these were normal. The state I really want to be in is regulated- deeply open, compassionate, content, satisfied, calm, still, loving. I therefore now have the awareness of where I am at and the triggers for this. When I am regulated I can coregulate with others. Anthia is highly knowledgable and ties these concepts to her area of speciality- nutrition and gut health. That is a very interesting connection. Anthia presents in this course as a regulated trainer- one with a big heart and generosity. She shares from her own journey which is very powerful. Many thanks, Kate S.
