Why non-dumbed-down nervous system education is essential

I believe that every human being deserves access to nervous system education.  And not just the basics.  I’m talking about deep learning at the neurophysiological, biological, chemical, threat response, environmental, social engagement, vagus nerve, parasympathetic, autonomic nervous system levels—all of it.  And, to be honest, my opinion is [...]

Why biohacks don’t work when healing the nervous system
