How Stress and Trauma Can Shrink Your Window of Tolerance
Are you or your loved ones feeling anxious, angry, overwhelmed, or at the opposite end of the scale and don't want to face the world either physically or emotionally?
Research is changing the way we view and integrate science and medicine today, so perhaps this chart will put into words the 'what' and the 'how' stress and trauma have a huge impact on your tolerance levels.
The chart below is courtesy of NICABM (National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine) and here's a wee piece about them.
NICABM "supports the integration of mind-body and behavioral medicine with Western medicine. NICABM does not advocate the use of alternative and/or complementary medicine in lieu of conventional medicine. Rather, we support the thoughtful consideration of the research and efficacy of behavioral medicine and, where appropriate, the application and integration of these treatment modalities."
