Rewire your brain FAQs
rewire your brain
When brain rewiring takes place, the synaptic connections within the brain form new networks and adapt to any learning and new habits that are taking place. Think of it as what happens when you learn a new language, an instrument, or even how to speak again if there has been trauma to the brain.
Yes, humans can rewire their brain to a certain extent because of our brain’s capacity for neuroplasticity. When someone is able to learn how to walk again after a bad accident, the brain must employ new areas to recreate the walking motor patterns and embed them in a new region of the brain that is still fully functional. This new region then takes on the “role” of that motor pattern or skill and changes its structure and function accordingly. This is a clear example of the brain reorganizing and rewiring its neural pathways.
So again, rewiring the brain can be done, if you have the proper instructions for how to do it. Such instructions are given in the re-origin program for rewiring the brain to heal from a variety of chronic conditions. There are of course instances where the brain cannot rewire itself but the fact that it can at all is remarkable.
Research has found that it is possible through neuroplasticity to halt negative thinking patterns and rewire the brain to feel more generally happy. Working on certain mood elevation practices such as those provided within the re-origin program, can promote lasting happiness. Other ways to rewire your brain to be happy include things like, spending time in nature, practicing gratitude, savoring the moment, and performing random acts of kindness.
New research using brain scans show that meditation can create neuroplastic changes, however, the specificity of such changes is unlikely to match that of targeted neuroplasticity training meant to address a specific issue. To rewire the brain and change your mind and bodily responses with respect to a certain condition, for example: PTSD, chronic anxiety, or inflammatory conditions, a more targeted approach, such as the one re-origin offers, must be taken.
Yes, a new study in the Journal of Clinical Medicine depicted a 45% reduction in anxiety from the use of neuroplasticity training. So, it is absolutely possible to rewire your brain from regular anxiety. Severe anxiety disorders often need more intervention to overcome them, but through consistent application of the techniques in re-origin , it is totally achievable to reduce your level of anxiety, live more peacefully, and feel at ease.
Music has the incredible ability to invoke a wide spectrum of emotions in a person as well as have many other effects on the brain. Studies have found that music helps engage the brain in ways that other systems cannot, and it can assist in rewiring the brain to lessen anxiety, increase motivation, and improve memory.
In recent years, there has been a primary focus on how exactly the hemp plant affects the human brain. CBD is a component found within hemp and there is some research to suggest that it may be useful topically for pain management or orally for individuals living with epilepsy disorders. However, more research is needed and re-origin does not participate in nor endorse the use of such substances for any reason.
Some research suggests that Marijuana may have an application for people suffering with PTSD if indicated by a medical professional. However, more research is needed and re-origin does not participate in nor endorse the use of such substances for any reason.
Research is learning more each day about all of the different ways that psilocybin (mushrooms) can affect the brain and the way it functions. A study at Yale discovered that a single dose of psilocybin was able to increase neural connections in the brain by an astounding 10%. Still, more research is needed and re-origin does not participate in nor promote the use of “magic mushrooms” or any other substances for treating anxiety or any other conditions.
There are many different ways that an individual can actively rewire their brain. If as little as 10 minutes each day for a couple of months is dedicated to retraining and rewiring your brain, huge advancements are likely to be seen. re-origin offers specific training that can teach you how to rewire your brain by performing daily neuroplasticity training exercises.
If you are living with consistent stress and anxiety and wish to lessen it, re-origin offers a program called “You Again” that teaches and supports you to retrain the overactive stress response from the limbic system and return to a state of calm and joy.
A lack of steady confidence is often a huge factor in why success does not always seem attainable. Utilizing the practice of visualization and shifting your mindset as much as possible where you can each day will aid in rewiring your brain to help you be more successful. Although “success” is not a focal point of the re-origin program, many of the techniques given herein can solidly contribute to increased self-confidence and help you overcome avoidance behavior that steifles so many.
Humans have a habit of getting into negative thinking patterns, which unfortunately becomes the norm. Now, this does not say anything negative about you. In fact, the brain has an inherited negativity bias, meant to prioritize safety and survival above all else, including feeling positive. Just becoming aware of this fact, and realizing when you’re feeling negative, that’s likely not about you or your circumstances, but rather, it’s just chemical process taking place in your brain – can help you to dissociate from negativity and refocus your attention on thoughts and sensations that make you feel more positive.
Addition is often accompanied by an underlying pain or discomfort that causes some to seek forms of pleasure that will distract you from the discomfort. Although much more is involved, some basic steps to rewiring your brain to overcome an addiction would be as follows: 1. Become aware of the craving or sensation that prompts you to act on the addiction. 2. Identify the underlying discomfort. 3. Use gradual exposure or incremental training to increase the length of time that you are able to stay with the unpleasant sensation without distracting away from it (it will eventually dissipate). 4. Replace the old addiction behavior with a new beneficial one. 5. Reinforce the new behavior by rewarding yourself each time you break the cycle and practice the change.
Depending on the area of your life you want to utilize neuroplasticity and relearn, practices like visualization, journaling, reframing your thoughts, and music can help you rewire your brain generally. But if you wish to rewire certain functions or aspects of your mind, then a more specific and targeted approach is needed like the one re-origin provides. Whatever method or technique you employ, it is important to note that at the end of the day, it is consistency over time that leads to lasting change.
Rewiring your brain is the process of relearning information and altering already present connections to adapt in necessary circumstances. Brain rewiring is always happening to an extent, but when consciously applied in the way re-origin teaches, one can practice and condition in a new way of thinking, feeling, acting or behaving.
Clonazepam, also known as Klonopin, is a controlled substance that can help treat anxiety disorders. This drug does affect the chemical makeup of the brain, and it can become addictive. Klonopin has not been shown to aid in rewiring the brain, especially not in a beneficial way – but it has been reported to be helpful to those that are prescribed it and need it to lessen their symptoms of anxiety and seizures in acute settings and under strict medical supervision.
If alcohol is consistently consumed over a long period of time, it does begin to change the brain. Scans of a brain that has been affected by alcohol can show the ways in which neural connections have changed and do not communicate as effectively as they would without the substance.
