David Berceli talks to Get Yourself Optimized Host Stephan Spencer
It has become commonplace to talk about being “triggered.” While becoming part of the lexicon, this concept is more than just a buzzword. Acknowledging these emotional triggers provides a greater awareness of how our past can continue to affect us. PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder, doesn’t just affect war heroes and first responders. We’ve all suffered trauma in our childhood, especially if you use the definition of trauma being anything less than nurturing, which I learned from previous guest, Brent Charleton. Traumatic experiences can alter our emotional responses and create problematic neural pathways. Plus, that trauma lives in our bodies as tension and stress.
But this trauma doesn’t just cause anxiety and back pain. This trauma can keep our bodies stuck in a suboptimal state. Thankfully, there’s a solution to this, and to tell us all about it, we have Dr. David Berceli joining us. He’s an international author, presenter, and trainer in the areas of trauma intervention, stress reduction, and resiliency & recovery training. He has lived in war-torn countries and natural disaster zones around the world. And he is the creator of the TRE, or “Tension and Trauma Release Exercises”. TRE releases stress and trauma from the body through exercises that bring balance to the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
If you or someone you love suffers from stress or trauma, you’re going to want to hear what David has to say. Leaving it unmanaged is like driving a car with the emergency brake engaged. So let’s get started – can say they can listen to or read it David’s interview here.
