Trauma is subjective. It’s hard to measure and understand. Its effects can be physical or mental.

Yoga has been proven to assist in healing from trauma. It promotes mindfulness and can help people let go.

A simple start you can do anywhere is focusing on your breath. Put your hand on your belly and concentrate on your breath.

Your diet impacts your mental health and ability to heal. Eat foods that support gut health. You may notice some of the physical symptoms associated with trauma subside.

Listen as Liz Arch joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss how to help yourself heal from trauma.
