Melatonin, Serotonin and Stress Strategies
Serotonin, the potent vasoconstrictor and neurotransmitter is found particularly in the brain and intestinal tissue and blood-platelets.
In fact, did you know that about 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut?
This webinar features the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and the enteric nervous system (gut).
Melatonin and serotonin are tied in with the enteric nervous system. They’re independent, and they often don’t talk to each other.
Our special guest this week, Geraldine Gallagher, is a Sydney kinesiologist, practitioner and instructor of kinesiology programs, both in Australia and overseas. Gallagher has expolored many modalities and now teaches Neuro-training programs, mentors practitioners, and has presented conference papers in Australia, Italy, Belgium, England and Ireland. Gallagher has studied homeopathy, is a qualified Master Practitioner of NLP and was the president of the Kinesiology Association of NSW for 5 years. She has authored two successful programs Creative Nutrition and Essence of Change.
Twenty four years in clinical practise has enabled her to research a unique range of flower and gem essences specifically focused on overcoming common problems related to change (including stress and sleep) and they have a direct link to the ancient Chinese philosophy through the hexagrams of the I Ching.
This was a fascinating night with Geraldine, a long-time personal friend of mine.
Her understanding of sleep includes information on the two nervous systems (entheric and autonomic) and their relationship to melatonin and serotonin, the part the vagus nerve plays and the essences she has personally developed to help with sleep, stress, change, motivation, and many other aspects of life.
Her approach is unique and the proposed sleep solutions.
