Description

Psychologically and physically traumatized individuals benefit from nutritional support to counteract the effects on the body of extreme stress, yet food is not typically on their treatment plans. In this recorded session, you’ll finally understand the complex relationship between what we eat and the way we think, feel, and interact with the world after trauma so that you can offer a new set of interventions to your most vulnerable clients. Learn how to restore balance along the digestive tract to set traumatized clients on a path to healing and get centered in bio-individuality and body positivity so that you can undo toxic diet culture.
