How does the Lightning Process work?

The Lightning Process® is a three-day neuro-physiological training programme that enables you to rebuild your health. Worldwide, it’s been used by over 25,000 people with issues spanning ME, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. The course itself covers the psychology of neurological health and the role of neurology in illness; it also provides a practical tool to implement your learnings and change your health for the better.

During the course of the three days, you are trained on:

• The psychology of neurology (how our thoughts influence our neurological health)
• The role that neurology plays in illness (both physical and mental)
• The physiological emergency response
• Restoration of homeostasis (the regulation of conditions in the body i.e. temperature)
• How we can change the way in which our neurological pathways are activated
• What we need to do to turn our health around for the better

You are then given a very specific self-coaching process that you can put into practice every time you experience symptoms or negative thoughts/feelings. This process is used to disrupt poor neurology, switch off what is known as the Sympathetic Nervous System response and develop healthy neurological function in its place. The more that you put this into practice, the more this healthy neurological function becomes automated through the process of neuroplasticity.
