I love learning about how we process life with all its ups and downs. And I was listening to Dr Nicole LePera talking about Polyvagal theory that was developed by Stephen Porges.
Polyvagal theory is about how trauma can affect the body, involving the vagus nerve which runs from the brain through the face and thorax to the abdomen.
It is also about dysregulation of our nervous system. Our nervous system runs all of our bodies physiological processes, as well as the brain.
