Abstract

It is understood that long-term elevation of fear and avoidance gives rise to anxiety disorders, including PTSD and OCD. Conditioned fear stimuli and associated conditioned fear responses are widely understood factors. Behavioral conditioning methods have included fear extinction and memory consolidation, detraining, exercise, tai chi, and pharmaceuticals. Evidence indicates it is difficult to remove fear in the adult system, and interventions largely cannot resolve chronic anxiety disorders. The medical field’s use of hormetic dose response is fairly well-established now, and sports medicine works with non-medicinal doses of stress to provide stimulation in the hormetic low dose zone, followed by an inhibitory response at higher doses: classic Hormesis. The benefit of eliciting hormetic dynamics in the human system has been observed with NeuroPhysics Therapy in countless people whose anxiety disorders resolved without medicine. The use of this nonlinear approach addresses stimulus-response conditioning that gives rise to chronic anxiety. This presentation focuses first on the nonlinear dynamics in the neurobiology of fear and anxiety, then describes requirements to hormetically perturb the anxious system under controlled conditions. In that setting, individuals are prone to successfully escape the previously non-controllable behaviors of rogue attractor landscapes embedded within neural nets that give rise to the emergence of the individual’s disorders. This is accomplished by using novel, controlled doses of psychophysical stress directly correlated with everything the client experiences; environmentally enriching stimuli are the integral core of the therapy. The presentation then explains and exemplifies how the hormetically informed use of sensitively prescribed mild resistance super slow movements performed on specialized resistance equipment by the individual appears to be a powerful way to account for consistent success of evaluating deterministic reactions to the environment by the individual and addressing anxiety disorders. It sets initial conditions for success because the controlled dose dependent perturbations of the psychophysical system are the dose individuals’ hormetically need to break the rogue symmetry of the system.
