Maybe you DON’T need more therapy. Maybe you need to support your brain. (Ep 292)

Apr 17, 2024 | Podcast

Maybe you don’t need more therapy. Maybe you need to support your brain.

This might be a slightly provocative title, but I have some thoughts on this as someone who has done a fair amount of therapy and values it deeply.

I am not anti-therapy, I just wonder how often we are missing the practical nourishment of our brains?

We usually always jump to therapy, which is well researched but how nourished is our brain with sleep, vitamins, fats, minerals, and the fuel it needs.

Because I can tell you it’s going to be really hard for you to create all these new thoughts and all these new habits and these beliefs and identities if your brain is poorly nourished and struggling and just surviving.

In order for you to deal with whatever symptom that you’re in therapy for, whether it’s anxiety, depression or trauma, one of the things that you’re trying to do is create more safety in your body and the easiest and simplest ways of creating more safety is making sure that your organs and your body are well nourished.

So, whether you’re struggling with your mental health or not, we really need to learn to support our brains and we need to learn to support our children’s brains.

When you have more resilience in your brain, you have more resilience in your hormones, in your gut, in your skin, in your sleep, in everything.
