I had seizures, fatigue, organ damage and paralysis. I could not move from the neck down. A virus had gotten into my spinal cord and I became quadriplegic. Unwilling to accept my seat on the sidelines, I wanted to participate in life more and spent two decades learning and healing. My experiences changed the course of my life as I found a passion for helping others find hope and healing. I started my road as an alternative health care practitioner in 2002, started my own clinical practice in 2009 and today I love working with people's health challenges and helping them find their way to wellness. Now I want to give that experience of feeling better, help you to participate in life more and reclaim your health!

Depression is one of the most researched mood disorders, but if we look a bit deeper into how depression is able to develop, it is more nuanced than we think. This means, treating depression isn’t a one size fits all solution. It is agreed upon that depression is a chemical imbalance and can be treated with SSRIs or SNRIs, etc., which can work for some, but this doesn’t always work for everyone. Understanding what happens in the body and brain when it comes to nervous system outputs and how we are wired, as well as our connection to nature and sunlight, we can start to understand the complexities of depression, and find ways to treat it at an individual level. In today’s episode, Elisabeth and Jennifer are joined by Matt Bush to talk about depression, chronic fatigue and functional freeze, and how they are all interlinked with one another. They discuss myths about depression and how pharmaceuticals aren’t the only, or best, way to treat depression. Also, how we may become wired toward depression at a young age by witnessing and mimicking caregivers in their own depressive states and how social connection, nature, and neurodrills that produce domaine, can help rewire the brain. Depression can look and feel insidious, but its main function is to be protective. If we reframe the way we look at depression, we can be effective in healing it.  Join us to learn about this and more! Topics discussed in this episode:   Different levels of freeze responses The overlap of functional freeze and burnout Chronic fatigue as a protective output What is depression? Some myths about depression Are pharmaceuticals necessary to treat depression? How depression can be wired into us by mimicking our primary caregivers Social connection as a way to rewire depression Dopamine’s role in the correlation between addiction and depression How neurodrills can rewire and change brain chemistry Nature as a healing tool The socioeconomic and cultural impact on the nervous system   Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Join the Next Level Neuro Mentorship Program: https://www.nextlevelneuro.com/a/2147666262/2U4AvzLR   REWIRE RETREAT  https://www.thenatureofmindbody.com/book-online   Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

Burnout

Burnout

2024-07-1535:45

magine a flame that isn’t receiving adequate fuel, slowly dying down. This is a great visualization of what happens in the body when we are experiencing burnout. When we push past our capacity and boundaries, while doing things that may not be authentic or aligned with us, we are essentially burning through our reserves faster than we can replenish them. This is so common for people to experience in our society, with so many pressures to do more constantly. The demand it has on our physical, mental, and emotional health is greater than we think. This is not to villainize growth, growth is good, but taking the time for rest and recovery is essential for that growth to be sustainable.  In this episode, our hosts Elisabeth and Jennifer discuss what burnout means, and dive deep into the science behind what happens in the body when we push ourselves further than our capacities can handle, and end up feeling tired, dissociated, and uninspired. They touch on the warning signs of burnout, as well as possible causes, such as social media, self abandonment, attachment styles, and socioeconomic pressures. The Western world rewards those who push themselves whether that is through physical training, needing to be at every event to maintain social connections, or even in our own somatic healing. Doing more, in less time, has become so intertwined in our culture, it’s no wonder so many of us experience high levels of stress and burnout, when it doesn’t have to be that way. Tune in to learn about burnout and learn the importance of rest and recovery so you can live a more present, fulfilling life, with your best foot forward.  You don’t want to miss this one! Topics discussed in this episode:   What is burnout? Getting real with our capacity Adrenal burnout and cortisol levels How sleep and rest is crucial for integration and repair How social media and blue light exposure adds to the stress bucket What is functional freeze? Misalignment and inauthenticity’s role in burnout How the cognitive load of high sensory input can affect stress levels Being performative as an indicator of burnout The different ways we exceed our capacity How women and men differ when it comes to stress levels     Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com     Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com     Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

Anxiety

Anxiety

2024-07-0157:57

In this episode of Trauma Rewired, hosts Jennifer Wallace and Elisabeth Kristof are joined by Matt Bush as they unpack anxiety. The conversation starts with an exploration of how neurodivergent conditions such as ADHD and autism impact executive functioning, sensory processing, and create hypersensitivities that lead to emotional overwhelm. They highlight the importance of self-assessment and retraining of sensory systems to better manage these challenges. Elisabeth Kristof further connects developmental and complex trauma to nervous system responses, noting how trauma shapes our interpretation of signals and can keep individuals in a constant state of fight, flight, or freeze. Jennifer Wallace emphasizes the crucial aspect of self-awareness and deep self-knowledge in managing anxiety, advocating for practices that foster body awareness, emotional expression, and self-regulation. Anxiety is not just a mental disorder but a physiological response emanating from sensory mismatches and respiratory inefficiencies. Chronic hyperventilation, for example, sends constant threat signals to the brain, keeping the nervous system on high alert. Through regular neuro training and specific breathing exercises, individuals can better regulate their nervous systems and reduce anxiety.  Let’s reframe anxious thoughts and use cognitive tools to consider positive outcomes, thereby preventing the negative spiral of anxiety and trauma. Discuss the tangible benefits of applying neurosomatic principles to everyday life. Explore sensory mismatches, emphasizing the need to address deficits in visual, vestibular, somatosensory, and interoceptive systems to alleviate anxiety. We advocate for ongoing self-assessment and retraining as ways to establish a new baseline of wellness.  Topics discussed in this episode: Impact of Neurodivergence Trauma and Nervous System Responses Self-Assessment and Sensory Retraining Role of Chronic Hyperventilation Anxiety as a Physiological State Cognitive Reframing of Anxiety Female-Specific Anxieties Sensory Mismatch and Anxiety   Neurosomatic Intelligence is Enrolling now!

"The mental health system's adherence to the medical model not only neglects the complex interplay of genetic, developmental and environmental factors, but also serves to stigmatize and marginalize those who suffer."   In the premiere episode of Season 4, hosts Elisabeth Kristof and Jennifer Wallace dive deep into the challenges and impacts of mental and physical health diagnoses from a Neurosomatic Intelligence (NSI) perspective. They share their personal journeys, battling with insomnia, anxiety, depression, gut dysfunction, breast cancer, and more, to highlight the importance of community support, validation, and autonomy during treatment.   Throughout the episode, the hosts advocate for a deeper understanding and compassion towards individual sensory systems and neurodivergence, stressing the need to reduce shame and stigma. They introduce the upcoming episodes of the season, teeming with guests who will explore structural forces, therapy decolonization, healing, and identity.   Both hosts share their profound discoveries from diving into complex trauma and nervous system health, promising to tackle crucial topics like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and the intersection of mind and body in the episodes to come.   Topics discussed in this episode :   Mental and physical health diagnoses and the impact a diagnosis has Understanding individual sensory systems and neurodivergence Depression, anxiety, ADHD, chronic fatigue, and burnout Structural forces, therapy decolonization, healing, and identity Examining trauma's impact on the nervous system Critique of current mental health model and systemic biases Link between chronic stress and disease Correlation between developmental trauma and coping mechanisms like addiction Terminology changes, dropping "disorder," and understanding neurology of identity and beliefs Importance of nervous system health and regulation   For those eager to join the hosts on a rejuvenating retreat, further details can be found at rewireretreat.org.

Somatic Memory

Somatic Memory

2024-07-1237:54

As humans we rely on visual memory the most, but what if we told you that memories, especially memories that were formed before we had language, live primarily in our bodies. It’s safe to say, the body keeps score, more than we know.  It can be extremely dis-regulating to try to retrieve memories that live in the body without proper training because the visual aspect of the memory may not correlate to the sensations that show up in the body. This is why having awareness and training is so crucial to the healing process, which is what we will be discussing in today’s episode. In this episode, our hosts Elisabeth and Jennifer sit down to discuss how somatic memories are stored in the body and the science behind the whole process. Our hormones, cells, and epigenetics play a crucial role, and understanding how they store and express trauma through our thoughts, behaviors, and decisions, we can start to really heal on a deep level. Possibly even heal parts of ourselves we didn’t know needed healing. Just as our brain and body can be wired, they can also be rewired. Through our awareness and understanding, and by learning effective tools to dig deep and re-pattern those hidden parts of ourselves.  Tune in to hear this and more! Topics discussed in this episode:   How we trust visual memory over somatic memory The science behind preverbal memory The role hormones play in somatic memory Freedom in repatterning the nervous system Cellular health and cellular memory Memories are stored in our cells How water holds memories Generational trauma and our collective memory     Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/ Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com     Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

This week on Trauma Rewired, hosts Jennifer and Elisabeth welcome back Matt Bush of Next Level Neuro to explore the physiology of stress and the transformative power of neurosomatic intelligence. We know that connection is crucial to our survival as humans, but for those with complex trauma, even the healthiest relationships can trigger a stress response and lead to maladaptive behaviors. This episode provides a comprehensive look at how stress impacts our relationships and physical health, and highlights the importance of consistent nervous system training to rewire the brain’s response to stress and build resilience. The conversion starts by examining what happens in the brain when a stress response is activated, and how developmental trauma shapes our nervous system and subconscious reactions as adults. Matt breaks down complex neurological processes, covering the role of the HPA axis, immune dysregulation and increased inflammation. Jennifer also introduces a new concept, called “shameflammation,” as they delve into the connection between chronic stress and disease in the body.

Believe it or not, empaths and narcissists have foundational similarities. Not only does the brain chemistry look the same, but empaths and narcissists both struggle with nervous system regulation and look to others to help them regulate their emotions. But whereas the narcissist avoids the emotions of others, empaths are deeply affected and have a physiological experience to the emotions of others on a subconscious level. This can lead to emotional fatigue, chronic stress, poor sense of self and more. So what’s the difference between having empathy and being an empath, and how can you change subconscious behavior? In this episode, Elisabeth, Jennifer and Matt cover the signs of being an empath, the causes of elevated empathy, such as deficits in the interoceptive system, and how it impacts our overall health. If you identify as an empath, tune in to learn about the power of nervous system regulation for changing harmful empath behavior! Topics discussed in this episode:   What it means to be an empath Empathy from a neurosomatic perspective Causes of high empathy Why being an empath isn’t always a good thing How deficits in the interoceptive system lead to empath behavior The correlation between sensory mismatch and empathy How to retain your empathic gifts and also prioritize yourself Nervous system regulation as a tool for change Join us for the next Neuro-Somatic Intelligence worshop!

Healing Dissociation

Healing Dissociation

2024-05-2055:071

“You can’t be present and dissociated at the same time.” These wise words from co-host Jennifer Wallace encompasses why this topic is so important to explore. Presence is the truth of our emotions and our reality, because we cannot heal what we do not feel. Being present with our emotions, and feeling them in our body, allows us to truly understand and heal our nervous system in ways that dissociating from the body cannot. This is a powerful conversation highlighting what goes on in the brain and nervous system when we dissociate, and how this protective mechanism can become maladaptive when its original function no longer serves us. There is a way to overcome dissociation and authentically feel emotions in the body to truly heal. In this episode, Elisabeth Kristoff and Jennifer Wallace deep dive into dissociation and its characteristics. The discussion begins with defining what dissociation is and how it is learned at an early age as a protective mechanism, followed by unraveling how dissociation shows up in the brain, specifically which brain structures are involved in disassociation, as well as the connection between the vagus nerve and the interoceptive system as it pertains to dissociation. It’s not enough to just understand these concepts intellectually, the real healing happens when we can experience them, which means feeling them in our bodies. That’s where Neurosomatic Intelligence Coaching comes in, where we teach you the tools you need to heal the whole self, and move out of dissociation and into the body in a safe way. Tune in for this and more! Topics discussed in this episode:   Definition of dissociation How dissociation is on a spectrum The protective aspects of dissociation How dissociation gets wired in the brain from an early age The function of the thalamus and how it’s related to dissociation The deep connection between the vagus nerve and the interoceptive system How the brain makes predictions based on our past experiences The possibility to train in new protective skills that are not maladaptive Knowing about the  nervous system is not the same as experiencing it Spiritual bypassing and dissociation  The importance of presence in understanding the truth of emotions Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/ Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

The essence of who we are radiates when we live in our purpose. When we can connect with our true self and share it with others. There are many blockers stopping us from being able to express our feelings, or even know what we’re experiencing, and one of them is self abandonment.   Don’t let the “self” fool you — sometimes, we unintentionally abandon ourselves because of the survival responses born as a result of trauma. Until healing begins, we can get stuck living through learned patterns of ignoring our own needs in favor of others around us, suppressing feelings to protect ourselves from the neglect of others, and rejecting our intuition.   Trauma Rewired host, Jennifer, and Elisabeth Kristof of Brain-Based Wellness are finishing the CPTSD series by discussing this final component of CPTSD: self abandonment. They talk about the ways we abandon ourselves through the lens of their own experiences, and how it manifests in a cycle of self-abuse and shame.   If you find yourself disregarding your own health and happiness, tune in to understand this component of CPTSD and how healing is possible!   Topics discussed in this episode:   Jennifer shares a recent story of self abandonment Elisabeth defints self abandonment Dissociation as a survival response The effects of parentification Healing self abandonment How all the components of CPTSD work together Becoming an expert of your nervous system Toxic stress and disease Learning to say “no” and self-regulate The power of self-expression Join the live-recording Q&A episode AND the new Facebook group!     Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/ Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

The term social anxiety gets tossed around a lot these days, however individuals with CPTS who experience social anxiety feel its effects on a visceral level. It can be highly debilitating and can affect the way we relate and connect to others, when the need for connection is at the very core of what makes us human. Knowing if you actually have social anxiety can be tricky, especially if there are socially acceptable coping mechanisms like overconsumption of substances involved. The proof is in the nervous system outputs, such as migraines, pain, exhaustion, or binge eating, after every social event. As well as, if these outputs cause you to refrain from being in social settings all together. At these times, it's important to reflect on whether you're genuinely comfortable in social situations or if social anxiety may be at play. In today’s episode, Elisabeth and Jennifer explore the world of social anxiety, specifically what signs in your nervous system to look out for if you suspect you have social anxiety, the difference between social anxiety and being socially awkward, the role substance use plays, how your attachment style can indicate your level of social anxiety, and how to repattern the nervous system using NSI tools to overcome social anxiety, and much more. As humans, we need to connect to others, and we need relationships to thrive. Social anxiety can impede these very human needs, however there is a way around it. It is possible to change how your nervous system takes in information, and change the way it reacts to that information, using simple tools to rewire and regulate. Tune in to hear how and more! Topics discussed in this episode:   What is social anxiety? The nervous system outputs associated with social anxiety Substance use and social anxiety How the inner critic and toxic shame shows up in social anxiety What is hypervigilance? Physiological reasons why stress in social situations can cause protective outputs How ADHD and social anxiety overlap How attachment styles are related to social anxiety Repatterning the nervous system to experience new outputs using NSI  Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/ Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

As a human, you have most likely felt shame to some degree. Although it is a normal human protective emotion to keep us safe on a societal level, shame can become toxic when it persists and when we internalize the critical narrative from that shame. Toxic shame shows up in many ways, however, the way it shows up physiologically is understood the least, but the most telling. From posture, dilated pupils, tense muscles, to inflammation in the body, headaches, and diseases, it is possible to visibly see shame on a person’s body. This is a result of the body protecting itself, and there is no shame in that. However once it becomes maladaptive, and absolute “I am” statements start becoming permanent fixtures in rumination, one’s perception of self shifts, which can eventually cause serious mental and physical health issues. On today’s episode, Elisabeth and Jennifer discuss how toxic shame differs from regular shame, how toxic shame shows up, what happens in the body when it does, where toxic shame originates from, how shame and pleasure shows up in those with a history of childhood sexual abuse, and what you can do to recognize and repattern toxic shame with Neuro-Somatic Coaching. Just as toxic shame is developed, it can be undeveloped, by learning how to recognize when and how it shows up in the body, then repatterning the neural pathways in real time using NSI tools, and allowing repressed emotions to mobilize. This episode is filled with knowledge and insight you don’t want to miss. Tune in for this and more! Topics discussed in this episode:   The difference between guilt and shame Difference between regular shame and toxic shame How toxic shame affects posture How shame is a protective response What is shame inflammation and its correlation to disease states? Why mobilizing the body is crucial to process emotions What is emotional attunement? Overcoupling of shame and pleasure in the case of childhood sexual abuse The types of body boundary violations What to do if you are having a toxic shame response? Why it’s important for practitioners to understand when a client is in a shame response Repattering shame in real time     Contact us about private Rewire Neuro-Somatic Coaching: https://brainbased-wellness.com/rewire-private-neuro-somatic-coaching/ Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com   Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.

We’ve all experienced the inner critic to some extent. You know, that voice inside of your head saying you’re not good enough, or that you’re a bad person. Where does this voice come from and why is it so vicious? Well, for people dealing with CPTS, this voice is even louder, and even more critical. The volume gets turned up ten notches, and turning it off feels like a game of tug of war. Understanding where this voice comes from and how it manifests is a crucial part to replacing the inner critic with self compassion. On this episode of Trauma Rewired, Elisabeth and Jennifer sit down to discuss the inner critic, specifically the severity of it when it comes to people with CPTS, what activates the inner critic loop cycle, what part of the brain the inner critic activates, the reflexive responses associated with the inner critic, and finally, how NSI training can help with quieting the inner critic. This type of reflexive response is created as a means of survival, the brain always wants to protect itself. However, the constant cycle of judgment, criticism, demeaning thoughts about the self becomes maladaptive when it stops serving its original purpose. There is a way to quiet the inner critic, which we want to share with you today. Tune in to find out how to turn down the volume on the inner critic, and the volume up on self compassion. Topics discussed in this episode:   Characteristics of the inner critic for those experiencing CPTS Where the inner critic lives in the brain The fawn response and how it’s related to the inner critic What activates the inner critic loop? The root cause of the inner critic How authenticity is affected by attachment style Freeze trauma response The opposite of the inner critic How NSI training can move you out of the inner critic loop cycle The importance of creating an internal environment of safety  Being exposed to other people’s inner critic Gossip as an external critic Combating the external critic with self compassion   If you would like to WATCH the episode and/or have closed captions, check out our Trauma Rewired YOUTUBE channel!    If you would like transcripts of this episode, you can find them HERE on Apple Podcasts.    Learn more about the Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching program and sign up for the spring cohort now! https://www.neurosomaticintelligence.com   Get started training your nervous system with our FREE 2-week offer on the Brain Based Membership site: https://www.rewiretrial.com   Connect with us on social media: @trauma.rewired   Join the Trauma Rewired Facebook Group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/761101225132846   FREE 1 Year Supply of Vitamin D + 5 Travel Packs from Athletic Greens when you use my exclusive offer: https://www.drinkag1.com/rewired   This episode was produced by Podcast Boutique https://www.podcastboutique.com   Trauma Rewired podcast  is intended to educate and inform but does not constitute medical, psychological or other professional advice or services.
