Most of us aren't aware how our upbringing has impacted the way we relate to others as adults. A child's nervous system is primed for regulation or dys-regulation, depending on whether their home life was emotionally safe, consistent, and reliable. If the child's core psychological needs weren't met, chances are, as an adult, their nervous system is dys-regulated. The result? Physical problems such as digestion issues & chronic pain, as well as mental health issues like anxiety, depression, low self-worth and unhealthy relationships.
