Mijn kind heeft last van angst

Anxiety is a fundamental human emotion which, when generally experienced in mild or moderate forms can encourage motivation, protection and adaptation. Overwhelming anxiety, however, disrupts social, occupational and emotional aspects of life and is experienced as distress. Anxiety can manifest itself in three ways:

Cognitively: in thoughts
Somatically: in physiological and biological processes
In feelings – emotions

Physiological feelings of anxiety can be so acute that they overwhelm any attempt by conscious efforts to control them. Ongoing control of actions can be interrupted due to the following somatic changes:

  • Shallow breathing
  • Dry mouth
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Sinking in the stomach
  • Rapid pulse
  • Light headedness
  • Dizziness
  • Muscular tenseness

Blythe recognised that adults who were recidivists (those who recovered for a time, then found symptoms returning), and those who failed to respond to various therapies despite a desire to get better, all demonstrated signs of neurological dysfunction relating to immature reflexes, including problems with balance, coordination, perceptual skills and the functioning of the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system (responsible for involuntary responses).

If NMI is a factor, correcting the underlying faults can help the sufferer regain cognitive control.

Please note, only some emotional problems are connected to NMI .

If you think neuromotor immaturity (NMI) may be a factor in your problems, please
