Evolving My Primitive Brain: How do I reprogram my brain?brain habits primitive brain May 03, 2022
Now that you know why your body responds the way it does, what should you do about it?
As evolved humans, our prefrontal cortex can override the limbic, primitive responses, when we intentionally use it for that purpose. One of the primary ways to do this is to attach positive emotions to the desired behavior.
In this video, Dr. Thoma explains more about how emotions are tied to habits and automatic responses, and how changing your emotion can help you change your behavior.
Dr. Thoma is a functional medicine physician in Chesterfield Missouri. His specialty is helping individuals identify the root cause of their health concerns.
Together with his wife, Jennifer, they own PuraWell. PuraWell is a health and wellness company focused on guiding you to take control of your healthcare so that you can live longer, healthier.
