Events that can lead to trauma, especially in childhood, can impact upon mental and physical health outcomes across our lifetimes. Trauma is a loaded word often reserved for severe abuse, neglect and violence, but trauma touches all our lives in some way and to varying degrees (it touches us or those we love, or the culture around us) and we need to understand how.

Understanding the link between what causes us to suffer today and trauma in our histories is a CRITICAL missing piece to so many of our mental and physical health conditions - like syndromes, autoimmune conditions, chronic pain conditions, anxiety, depression and more - and to our experiences of unnecessary suffering. 

The critical missing piece is in how some common and some not-so-common experiences we had continue to be held in our bodies, creating pervasive feelings of danger that influence our thoughts, perception and behavior. 

There are some fascinating links to explore in this episode that I hope you'll get a sense for, but I'm also introducing you to a FREE educational resource around trauma and its healing towards the end of the episode, that will delve a lot deeper into this fascinating link, so stay tuned for that! 

You can find today's show notes HERE, including the link to the free resource!
