Balancing our Fears

 Music credits:  Barenaked Ladies "Allergies"

 Allergies and Anaphylaxis are scary, no doubt about it.  Whether it is an acute fear at the time of an emergency or a more chronic fear of the risks, this has a profound affect on us. How does this fear change the way we interact with others, the way we behave, the way we carry ourselves?  Where does this fear manifest itself in our physical bodies?  How would we act differently if we didn't have this fear?  These are the questions explored in this short video clip.  With a discussion of our sympathetic nervous system which hardwires us to be fearful and the balancing effects of the parasympathetic nervous system, the Allergy Mom goes deeper....the issues truly do lie in our tissues.  If you are suffering from fear or anxiety and would like to connect with the Allergy Mom to discuss this or for a referral to someone in your local area, please contact via:  For other offerings related to yoga and therapy, visit
