Healing the Nervous System & Why It Matters w/ Irene Lyon

260: Healing the Nervous System & Why It Matters w/ Irene Lyon

It would be lovely and oh-so-simple if health was simply a byproduct of nutrition and exercise, but it’s not. Not by a long shot. It is a byproduct of learning how to better manage the things IN your life that act as stressors on your life, because…

Unmanaged stress can massively disrupt the nervous system, which then disrupts our capacity to improve our lives as my guest, Irene Lyon, so beautifully explains.

I have been a longtime fan of Irene’s work around trauma and nervous system health because I have seen it improve the lives of not only of my clients, but I have experienced the incredible healing power of nurturing the nervous system in my own life

In what ways might your health improve if you learned to regulate your nervous system? Check out this episode to find out:)

Understanding the Incredible Power of the Nervous System w/ Irene Lyon: Part 1

032: Understanding the Incredible Power of the Nervous System w/ Irene Lyon: Part 1

I have been working with women to improve their health story now for nearly 20 years, and the longer I am at this, the more I believe that focusing on nutrient dense food and regular movement is actually the EASY part of getting healthy. When clients sign up to work with me, they are under the impression that I am going to have them do MORE to create the change they are seeking, so you can imagine their surprise when I ask them to do LESS. And why less…because most people are coming to work with me in stressed out state that is on hyper-drive. Stressing out their system MORE with less food and more exercise is not a great starting place to create positive and sustainable change. So the I am at this health coaching business, the more I have come to appreciate the incredible power of slowing down and HEALING before we ask more from our bodies.

So…I am ridiculously excited about today’s guest. Her name is Irene Lyon and she helps people to heal and honor their nervous systems, so they can create real, sustainable change and, ultimately get the most out of every aspect of their life.

Irene has loads of education to back-up her work, which includes: degrees in exercise physiology and biomedical science. She is a certified Feldenkrais practitioner and certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner.
