The Polyvagal Theory and why should we care?

I came across the polyvagal theory during my Kinesiology studies. It has completely changed my perspective on what I thought I knew about our nervous system (acquired through my Pharmaceutical studies). It is a breakthrough work offering different understanding of human behaviours and trauma and I thought it was really worth a blog. The polyvagal theory from Dr. Stephen W Porges revisits the anatomy and physiology of one the most important actor of the mind-body connection: the vagus nerve. It presents new ways of approaching mental health, such as anxiety, depression, recovery from early trauma which can commonly keep individuals living in perpetual fight-or-flight state or in freeze state
