Dr. John Lieurance | It’s All In Your Head: How To Relax The Default Mode Network, Endonasal Cranial Therapy + Why Psychosomatics: Transformation (LIVE at RUNGA)

“Functional cranial release drops the default mode network, just like psychedelics do. You experience this balloon inflation. There’s this very calm sensation people will experience. And so there’s kind of a window for people to have emotions that will come up, being able to be objective or empathetic towards those emotions. So there’s a lot of utility for not just treating the brain and neurological conditions, but also with mental, emotional, spiritual applications.” – Dr. John Lieurance

Power Quotes From The Show

[click_to_tweet tweet=”Meet life with a ‘yes’ instead of a ‘no'. – @awcsarasota” quote=”Meet life with a ‘yes’ instead of a ‘no'. – @awcsarasota”]

How Are Limbic Isolations Impacting Our Health?

“Limbic isolations are really really important because they either synchronize or asynchronize a whole wealth of pathways on the brainstems that keep us healthy and vital. And when we don’t have that, it shuts it all down, so a lot of people might find they have a lot of anxiety, and there can be a lot of neurological confusion that happens with the brain.” – Dr. John Lieurance

Releasing Hidden Fears

“We carry a lot of fears that are based on thoughts that we believe are true like ‘I'm not good enough' or ‘I'm not loved.' What might be covering that up are thoughts like, ‘My father doesn't respect me' or ‘I'm going to be late for this appointment and they'll be made.' Those thoughts are covering up all of these hidden fears that we all carry and when you start to get into psychedelics or breathwork or even this endonasal treatment that I do, they take us back to a calm state and help us let go of those fears as they de-regulate our default mode network.”– Dr. John Lieurance

Holding The Breath = Holding The Trauma

“When we hold our breath, that's the veil. You have trauma, you hold your breath, it’s going to push it into the subconscious. It’s going to be there and it’s going to control you in a way that’s probably not going to be positive and create suffering.” – Dr. John Lieurance
