When you are calm, your mind and body are in a state of focused awareness. You are in your "zone," performing at your peak. Now, Dr. Gayatri Devi shows in A Calm Brain how you can cultivate this optimal mental and physical state by tapping into your body's hard-wired natural relaxation system.
With a warm, lucid voice, Dr. Devi shares stories from her medical practice of ordinary people-suffering from migraines, neck pain, gastrointestinal upsets, and sleep deprivation- trying to work through life's difficulties. With practical advice she shows just how to promote a higher "vagal tone," and delivers the best news yet, you don't need more drugs. Here are the keys to more tranquil, productive, and enjoyable life.
Dr. Devi explores a paradigm shift in our understanding of the brain's relaxation mechanisms. It is hard for our brains to talk our bodies into feeling calm, but our bodies have strong wiring that makes true enduring calm possible. The body does this through the vagus nerve, a powerful conduit that taps directly into our brain's built-in relaxation system. This revolutionary science can transform your work life and your home life.
