NSD is short for “nervous system dysregulation”.
If you’ve got NSD, it essentially means that your nervous system is stuck ON or OFF (or both at the same time).
If it’s stuck in ON (sympathetic / fight or flight) mode:
You rarely feel safe.
You can’t focus.
You can’t “come down” and relax.
It might be hard to fall asleep…
…or hard to stay asleep.
On the other hand, if your nervous system is stuck in OFF (freeze) mode:
You feel rigid and tense.
No feeling (so you don’t feel “alive”).
Numbed out and disassociated.
Unable to move forward in life.
Though if you’re like most people, you probably have some combination of both ON and OFF:
That means you might have trouble forming relationships with people or animals.
Creativity, productivity, motivation and drive are at an all time low (what’s the point of anything!?!???).
You’re more susceptible to chronic health conditions, whether physical, mental or emotional.
Low self-worth and low self-esteem.
Life feels hard Hard HARD.
Whatever combination of NSD symptoms you have, it sucks.
I’ve been there and it was NOT fun.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that this is NOT “just the way you are”.
You can change.
You can heal.
You can put NSD in the past.
By learning how to work directly with your nervous system and fight-or-flight response.
By cultivating safety at every level of your being – head, heart and gut.
By unleashing the trapped energy behind your fear, rage, shame and guilt.
By getting out of your head and into your body.
Here’s how to do all that and more:
