About this course
In this fascinating presentation Dr Gupta discusses his hypothesis that mould illness is a conditioned response of the brain to a chemical or electrical field that the brain thinks is dangerous. This conditioning occurs because when the amygdala and insula are on high alert, it is very prone to learning new fears and sensitivities.
Even if the original toxin did not present a threat to life, these brain structures will “err on the side of caution” in it hyper-anxious state, in order to protect the body. From then on, any exposure to the original chemical, or any chemical which holds a vague resemblance to the original trigger, will initiate an over-stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system by the brain, as well as specific reactions to mitigate the threat of the toxin.
The presenter believes that mould illness is a neurological disorder caused by conditioned trauma in the amygdala, insula and the limbic system in general, following specific or general exposure to a chemical, mould or other threat.
The good news is that these reactions can be “retrained” and the brain can be rewired. It involves creating safety neurons which projects from the pre-frontal cortex, to the amygdala and other brain structures, to control its reactions whenever the chemicals are detected.
