Jolene’s interest in a comprehensive approach to recovery began when she stopped using alcohol as a way to self-medicate her own anxiety.

Here are my favorite gems from this weeks episode:

  • You don’t need to have create disasters to have a problem with drinking. You can take an “early exit” from the path of alcohol to create a better life
  • Stable blood sugar is a major key in creating a healthy stress response
  • Proteins & Fats feed the brain and are essential for helping eliminate depression, cravings, mood issues, and symptoms of anxiety
  • Somatic therapy gives us the tools to regulate our nervous system
  • Grounding, centering and orienting will help us to release stress and link into the moment
  • What the polyvagal nerve is and how we can stimulate it
