The Secure and Insecure Pathways of the Brain
Apr 04, 2023 Season 2 Episode 6
Thomas Pals and Ruth Lorensson

In this episode Ruth & Tom explore the neuroscience behind the secure and insecure pathways of the brain. 

When we feel safe and secure, the brain's secure pathway is activated, and the parasympathetic nervous system takes over. This system helps us relax, slow down our heart rate, and decrease blood pressure, allowing our body to rest and recover. When we feel calm and relaxed, we can think more clearly and make better decisions.

On the other hand, when we sense or perceive a threat or feel  insecure, the insecure pathway of the brain is activated, and the sympathetic nervous system takes over. This triggers the fight or flight response, which prepares our body to either confront the threat or flee from it. 

Autonomic Healing Activation intervenes in this predictable brain trajectory - empowering people to stop the inevitable pathway of the insecure and seemingly rational perceptions.
