Thyroid UK members are being offered a free training as part of a study called ‘Hashimoto’s heart’. The study is a collaboration between hashimoto.help and Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
The mind and body, individual and environment have long been seen as separate entities. This online training takes the psychoneuroimmunology perspective. This perspective is based on the fundamental unity of the body’s systems. It is the function of these systems to help you stay healthy. The immune system is a part of that.
Patients with autoimmune disease have a different response to stress. They register more stress. Stress does not just come from outside of our body but also emerges as a result of our internal experiences, which influences our self-evaluation, self-identity, self-presentation and self-control. The internal and external stressors are registered in the same way in our body but the internal stressors are present 24 hours a day. The internal stressors have developed to protect us, to make sure we survive although in the long run they can make us sick.
By reprogramming the system, neurobiology, psychological and physiological changes will take place. You will be able to differentiate threat from non-threat and consequently the immune system will balance. You will get yourself back, feeling energetic and vital.
The training provides:
• understanding of the role of emotions as part of the immune system
• inner resources development
• experiential exercises and self-discovery
• development of life knowledge and skills
This is an excellent opportunity to learn about yourself and your body.
