There are many forms of addiction: smoking, drinking, drugs, gambling, spending, hoarding, and technology to name a few. Each one these addictions is a result of brain wiring that drives our behavior to an extreme. Emotional Brain Training (EBT) gives us the tools and support to change those wires.
What happens in the brain? It’s easy for the brain to get stuck in stress overload so that brain’s reward centers are not satisfied by moderate behavior. We comfort ourselves the best we can, and the resulting extremes of behavior become wired into the brain.
Why does EBT work? The goal of EBT is to address the root cause of addictions: our wiring. Our brain becomes highly effective at getting out of stress overload, cravings fade as the reward centers become more balanced and we have a new sense of freedom in our lives.
