Remember that loud TV emergency alert system that would go off back in the day and make you nearly jump out of your seat? Your body’s trauma response is a lot like that. It’s set up to alert your body to impending danger, flooding it with hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, which prepare your body for action.
But in the case of trauma, this response can be overwhelming and long-lasting, leading to a host of effects in your body. Hypervigilance, changes in your nervous system, immune system dysfunction, chronic pain, sleep disturbances, and hormonal imbalances are just a few of the changes that occur as a result of trauma.
Because of these physiological changes, past trauma can really have an impact on our health both in the short- and long-term. Past trauma creates roadblocks to healing and causes people to remain stuck in their journey despite doing all the right things to get well.
MaxWell Clinic’s Dr. Ashley Woods and Nashville’s own transformative psychotherapist Dr. Brian Hooper are both passionate about helping people become the fullest versions of themselves. Join them in this webinar as they explore what you need to know about trauma and the body:
