“The mental health system’s adherence to the medical model not only neglects the complex interplay of genetic, developmental and environmental factors, but also serves to stigmatize and marginalize those who suffer.”  

In the premiere episode of Season 4, we dive deep into the challenges and impacts of mental and physical health diagnoses from a Neuro-Somatic Intelligence (NSI) perspective. We share our personal journeys, battling with insomnia, anxiety, depression, gut dysfunction, breast cancer, and more, to highlight the importance of community support, validation, and autonomy during treatment.  

Throughout the episode, we advocate for a deeper understanding and compassion towards individual sensory systems and neurodivergence, stressing the need to reduce shame and stigma.

We introduce the upcoming episodes of the season, teeming with guests who will explore structural forces, therapy decolonization, healing, and identity.  We share our profound discoveries from diving into complex trauma and nervous system health, promising to tackle crucial topics like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and the intersection of mind and body in the episodes to come.
