1. Traumatic events that are not processed effectively.
2. Emotions such as fear, uncertainty, despair, hopelessness.
3. Lack of self-esteem and constant anxiety or negative mind-chatter.
4. Being "on the fence", feeling trapped, or holding onto secrets.
5. Lack of a support system, especially early in life.
6. Email, texting, and constant "unbuffered" communication.
7. Nutrient imbalances and deficiencies.

10. Environmental chemicals and toxins.
1. Protect the integrity of the mind by decreasing irrelevant and overwhelming stimulation and input (such as spending hours searching the web).
2. Strengthen your face-to-face communication skills.
3. Limit mental stimulation that is unproductive, and make more conscious choices, less reactive/emotional choices.
4. Feed your brain (water, healthy fats, nutrients).
5. Provide the mind/nervous system with adequate rest, relaxation, and time to reflect and process.
