Symptoms associated with unresolved trauma include a hyper-stress response, anxiety and depression, all of which can lead to:
- Biochemical changes like suppressed immunity, leaky gut, brain inflammation and endocrine imbalances.
- Changes in behavior that can sabotage our best intentions on a health program, such as workaholism, lack of rest, discounting our own needs, over-helping others and additions to any food, chemical or activity which distracts us from unresolved painful emotions.
- Changes in unconscious beliefs and a negative mindset like believing we don’t deserve health, joy, abundant energy and well-being.
The conundrum for sufferers is that correcting the way we think and feel can be addressed through psychological AND physiological changes. For example, we can address anxiety by balancing our gut bacteria!
