How to Heal PTSD: The Science + Personal Facts

I love to talk about PTSD recovery. My theory is this: the more we talk about what does — and doesn’t — work the more everyone has the opportunity to find his or her own healing path.

This past week I was a guest on Generation Regeneration, a radio show about wellness. I’m on the air lot and am interviewed weekly about how to heal PTSD. What I loved about this conversation with host, Sandra Malhotra, is how well she laid out the questions and conversation so that it flows clearly from:

  • the origin of trauma to
  • the way we experience PTSD to
  • how trauma affects the brain to
  • how to heal symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder

Our chat even included the top three things to add momentum to any recovery process. As always, I like to share useful info with my peeps, so here’s the interview for you, raw and uncut!
