Are You Suffering from an Inherited Family Trauma?
When you experience a trauma, there is a chemical change in your DNA.

This can impact the genes of many generations that follow.

The result may be that offspring are born with fears, anxiety, stress. Personality and behaviors may be influenced by past generations' traumas. 

If you've been affected by an inherited family trauma, you may have underlying signs or symptoms starting from a young age, or those symptoms may not appear until a certain age or milestone in life.

Mark Wolynn, Director of The Family Constellation Institute and author of IT DIDN’T START WITH YOU: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle, joins Dr. Susanne to explain what inherited family trauma is, signs that you may be suffering, and ways you can start to heal.
