It's natural and healthy to want to be as juicy and nature-plumped for as long as possible. But something may be lurking in the shadows of the beauty industry - Botox and its effects on your emotional and social regulation system. Just how far are we willing to go to keep that eternal plump of youth? What are we willing to sacrifice? Here Katie speaks openly about natural living fundamentalism, embodied cognition, our social nervous system and what all of this has to do with Botox injections.
P.S. This is a NO-JUDGMENT zone over here at Shakti School. We 100% support a woman’s right to make her own beauty decisions and support our Botoxed Beauties as much as anyone. In fact, thousands of years of history show us that women will go to great lengths to beautify themselves. And while beautification methodology is very much a personal choice, women deserve to be educated on the effects of Botox on their social nervous system. So whether you are a Botox-queen or a natural-only mama, let’s release judgment and dive in deep in this not-to-be-missed pod.
In this episode you’ll hear:
The idea of embodied cognition
~ The importance of our social nervous system and the ventral vagal complex
~ What natural living fundamentalism is and how it relates to wellness culture (p.s. We love a Vitamix ;))
~ The importance of our micro musculatures for regulating mood states
~ How botox can not only affect the way other people perceive your emotions, but also impact the emotional experience of the person who had the injection
