Aimie Apigian, MD, MS, MPH

Welcome to this interview on the Biology of Trauma Summit 3.0. I’m your host, Dr. Aimie. And this interview is really exciting because we’re combining two, two different models, essentially, and not only for addictions, which is where we start the conversation here, but really for chronic illness. And as Jan will mention in the interview, really for anyone with a body and an autonomic nervous system, which includes you. Now, one of the concepts that we talk about in this interview is the idea of a state regulator or what she calls a state propeller. And the state regulator comes from Dr. Steve Porges work. And I want to help you understand that so that when we get to that part of the conversation, you will know what we’re talking about. So let me show you the three states so that you understand. Then there’s my dog. The three, the state regulators and the state propellers. What does that mean? So we have three states of our autonomic nervous system. Autonomic nervous system are these three states. So we have the parasympathetic or social engagement and we have the sympathetic or the stress response. And then we have this down here and this is going to be a dorsal vagal response or a dorsal that will state the freeze response, also known as the trauma response. So all of those are interchangeable. And when we talk about a state regulator, that is what this is, is a perhaps somebody is stuck up here in stress and they can’t get out of that adrenal lin and that anxiety, perhaps panic.
