The behavioral immune system, with Nick Potter
In this episode, my guest is Nick Potter, an Osteopath based in London & author of the book titled ‘The Meaning of Pain’. We started talking about the behavioral immune system, which is a psychological immune response toward disease-causing pathogens in our environment, and how so many people experienced this phenomenon during COVID. We also covered several other topics, including adaptation and building resilience through the ‘graded exposure to threat’ technique, the link between nutrition, socialization, mental health & immunity, and how eating disorders can lead to infertility.
