Anxiety and depression are the conditions that arise as result of a what is happening in the nervous system, which is often a result of trauma. Trauma can be described as any experience in which the nervous system perceives an overwhelming threat. These may include developmental trauma or shock trauma.
Our nervous system reacts to triggers and stressful situations by releasing hormones into the body that are meant for our “fight or flight” response. However, in cases of anxiety or depression, these hormones and chemicals are repeatedly released into the nervous system so that our “fight or flight” response is constantly being triggered and it eventually becomes the “normal” of our body. The results are very detrimental to our health and wellbeing, both physical and emotional. It can sometimes be so extreme that we shut down completely.
