191: Mind Your Brain
Stress not only feels awful, but studies show that stress increases or exacerbates many kinds of illness and disease. When we have unmanaged stress or trauma, our brain gets locked into “fight or flight” mode, causing inflammation and a host of other undesirable symptoms. In this episode we explore how specific essential oils can literally assist our brain in returning to a normal state. Elizabeth Erickson, author of Mind Your Brain: Optimizing Your Life and Health Using Essential Oils, combines over a decade of experience in the trenches as a serial entrepreneur with her background in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience to help others understand their brains, businesses, and their individual identities. She tests theories and hard science while weaving ancient creative disciplines and methodologies to create a systematic and sure approach to decrease stress, increase creative output, and connect the dots in your life.
Check out today’s episode to learn about how your gut affects your mental state, which essential oils are best for supporting a happy, healthy brain, and tools to help regulate emotions.
