Rewiring the Stress Response: A New Paradigm for Health Care. Hypothesis9 1: In describing the conceptual basis of a stress intervention method, Emotional Brain Training EBTa program which integrates advances in neuroscience and stress physiology, we propose a new paradigm for health care.
Many health care treatments focus on managing symptoms of stress-related disorders. In modern society stress is primarily psychological in nature and in its chronic form, the result of allostatic non-homeostatic neural circuits that amplify and prolong stress.
The result is cognitive, emotional, behavioral and physiologic dysregulation resulting in wear and tear allostatic load. The effectiveness of treating any one stress symptom is likely decreased because of the persistent allostatic state. Emerging understanding of neuroplasticity suggests that this circuitry is capable of change.
EBT is based on the repeated use of techniques that mirror secure attachment and optimal self-regulatory processing to alter allostatic circuits through the process of reconsolidation, therefore decreasing allostatic load. This results in an improved state of well-being.
We hypothesize that decreased dominance of allostatic neuronal circuits leads to improved health outcomes, offering a new paradigm for health care. Introduction Many diseases including obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, depression, anxiety, chronic pain and headaches are symptoms of stress or exacerbated by stress.
Identifying and modifying the brain circuits that trigger maladaptive stress responses should result in overall health improvement and likely decrease reliance on medications, procedures and devices. The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis HPA and the sympathetic-medullo-adrenal SMA system are activated in response to a stressor or fear.
Their prolonged or repeated activation interferes with most physiological systems, resulting in increased risk for physical and psychiatric disorders Links between stress and disease have been reported for depressionobesity and cardiovascular disease Each of the top ten causes of death in the United States is caused by or exacerbated by stress InLaurel Mellin began developing a treatment program for obesity 19—20aimed at decreasing the drive to overeat; the program has since evolved into a method of training adults and children in the skills of self-regulation called Emotional Brain Training EBT.
Over time, the method was informed by emerging neuroscience research in the areas of neuroplasticity, emotion research, stress biology and attachment theory.
The neuroscience of rewiring self-regulation utilized by EBT is based on physiologic brain states of stress. The skills used to rewire the stress response are based on four core concepts enumerated below. The full-blown stress response evolved in reaction to an imminent threat to survival — it is triggered rapidly and non-specifically However, this kind of threat is rare in modern society leading to an often inappropriate triggering of the full-blown stress response.
The wiring that triggers this unnecessary, amplified or prolonged stress response is stored in the unconscious implicit memory systems 23 via the HPA and SMA axes Those early connections, especially before the age of three, or later in life during periods of trauma, form the basis for the circuitry of resiliency and health Online Library of Liberty.

A systematic review and meta-analysis found that moderate ethanol consumption does not prolong life compared with lifetime abstention from ethanol consumption. A systematic analysis of data from the Global Burden of Disease study found that consumption of ethanol increases the risk of cancer and increases the risk of all-cause mortality, and that the level of ethanol.
Brain injury and emotions. A brain injury can change the way people feel or express emotions. A person with TBI can have several types of emotional problems. Abstract.
Although a substantial body of literature has explored the relationship between sleep and exercise, comprehensive reviews and definitive conclusions about the impact of exercise interventions on sleep are lacking.
Our brain waves share and are attuned to certain frequencies of the Schumann's resonances, the ELF signals that pulsate between the Earth's crust and ionosphere.
