The effects that Trauma has on you is very real. Sometimes we don’t even know that trauma has occurred. It could be that it has been blocked from memory. It could be that you just don’t understand or have recognized it. So, let’s answer the question: what is trauma? Trauma is an experience that leaves a lasting negative impact on your behaviors, relationships, thoughts, or feelings. They can come from a list that is still incomplete as there are still people around. Trauma can come from experiences, you might be experiencing them if you have had to deal with abuse, death, loss, or betrayal. Just as each of us can have something different cause the trauma but each person can experience it differently. It is not helpful to compare or contrast yourself with anyone around you. It is important for us to recognize what the triggers are. Then how you experience and respond to what has happened to you.  

In order to move past a trauma, you must first be out of the situation. You must be safe before any type of healing can happen. Safety means you have a place where you will not be re-traumatized. It also means that you will feel loved and accepted. A “Safe Place” is one free from bias, abuse of any kind, conflict, criticism, or potentially threatening actions, ideas, conversations or violence. You deserve to be safe. You deserve to be in a place that you feel no abuse or violence in. Do you have a safe place to go to leave behind the traumas that you have faced? Do you have a strong and compassionate person that can lead you safely through the experience, and remove the memories from every part of your body? 

Once you are in a safe spot you can then look at the nature and the extent of your trauma. The things you will want to go over with someone safe are the what, when, and how often for how long you experienced the trauma. This will give you an understanding of what it is and how it will affect you in your everyday life. Most people are able to move past levels of trauma similar to a video game. First you process the situation and healing happens.  Then you live without any effects for some time. Then at a later time they realize they see things differently and they again look at and process the traumatic experience much easier and with less time and emotion. Then it happens again they see it in a different light. It is not traumatic but they learn to heal in an even deeper way. This is not that we are dealing with it over and over, it is that we are learning more and more and moving through it at a deeper level.

So, there was a young girl. We will call her Linda. Linda had been sexually abused by a family member a couple times per month from the time she was 2 until the time she was 8 years old. It happened at hers and the other family members’ house. At which point her parents find out and they remove the family member from Linda’s life and make her home safe. Her parents believe her and get her help. The help uses great tools and Linda feels safe again and starts to do better and feel safer at school. So now her abuse is past and she has leveled up past it. But let’s look at Linda as she turns 15. Now her life changes and she wants to start dating. She wants to be attractive to boys. Here she might find some new triggers that were not there. It is not so much that she is still traumatized, it is that she is moving into a new experience and she needs tools to deal with the experience in this new environment. Now let’s say it is 10 years later and she wants to get married. That too might level up the trauma and she might need to address it again. Unless you deal with every body part and experience that the trauma is tied to you can have to deal with it more than once.

We are looking at overcoming trauma and new info on PTSD. We started with how the effects of trauma are very real. Trauma comes from an experience that has a lasting negative reaction to our lives. The first step to overcoming the trauma is to get out of the situation, leave the relationship, tell the authorities. Get someplace safe. Once you are safe you can then with the help of me or someone else who is strong and compassionate; a person that can lead past the experience. I am happy to help you through this

Now there are medications that can help you suppress the emotions and trauma that you have experienced. Now if you choose to use these, I highly recommend counseling or coaching in addition. Otherwise, feelings buried alive never die. Because you have not released the trauma it will continue to traumatize you despite the medications. This is why people just using medications have to increase the dose over time to get the same help. Another reason they are not my first pick is medications suppress all emotions, both good ones and hurtful ones. This goes for self-medication also. Alcohol is a depressant. It slows down the body and brain. Even though it slows down your body and brain it can create more anxiety and stress. It can create a greater risk of responses such as anger, aggression or depression.

Another way to overcome PTSD is to get healthy. This means eating and drinking the correct things. It also means movement. I know I sound like a broken record, but movement, sleep, and healthy eating have a huge impact on most every part of your life. Reducing or removing caffeinated and sugary tasting drinks will make a difference that you will mostly likely not expect. Inflammatory foods contribute to feelings of anxiety and restlessness. Reducing sugar can help. Movement creates the right hormones and transmitters in your body to help you feel happier. Getting healthy will put you on the road to happiness.

There are alternatives to medications that can also be used. Medications have down sides and they cause side effects. Medications may cause vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, weight gain, drowsiness, sedation, constipation, and dry mouth. Now herbal treatments can reduce anxiety and depression and are less likely to have side effects. Feverfew and butterbur can be used to treat migraines associated with PTSD. Drinking the following teas may be able to contribute to reducing anxiety and stress: peppermint, turmeric, ginger, Ashwagandha, Kava Kava, Chamomile, passion flower, lemon balm, and rose tea. These natural options can be helpful with overcoming PTSD.

Working through the trauma is also a big help in overcoming PTSD. While working through the traumatic events you will want to work through them on a cellular level throughout your body. This will get rid of the memories. This will help you to overcome the hard-wired survival strategies based on flight, flight, freeze or please responses are hard to break away from. Without overcoming the trauma on a cellular level, you could still fall back into old mind-body- brain patterns.

If you are tired of suffering, beating up on yourself, reacting from PTSD, when you are dealing with past pains, and imagine that Your PTSD cannot be cured; If you want to struggle less and enjoy more. If you want a truly amazing life that is connected and complete, you need the “you have value program” If you are willing to make some changes, forgive yourself, and continue to try. I would love to help you to create who you are actually capable of becoming.  Contact me, ken@creatingyouramazing.life.
