3 Simple Ways To Heal Your Body From Trauma

Posted by Liz Tenuto on

Your body gets effected by trauma. Whether you have hip pain, lower back pain, neck pain, frequent headaches, sleep issues, gut issues, brain fog, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or constant fatigue / exhaustion, trauma will slowly erode your physical health

These are the best 3 things to do to start healing your body from trauma, especially if you've been in pain for longer than 3 months or have experienced a lot of trauma. 

1. Take baths

Baths naturally eliminate toxins from your body. They lower your blood pressure and relieve your muscle pain. Baths elevate your mood and help you sleep better as well.

2. Drink more water

Drinking water is the easiest way to improve your energy level and brain functioning. It also flushes out the toxins from your body naturally. (Fair warning--you will pee a lot at first when you start drinking water). Water also lubricates your joints and protects your organs and tissues.

3. Somatic exercises

Movement is incredibly important while healing from trauma, not just for your physical health, but also for your mental health. Somatic exercises can be done by all body types and by people with limited mobility. (They're safe to do while healing from injury and trauma. You can do somatic exercises in bed!)

Somatic exercises are clinically proven to regulate your nervous system and release the stored trauma from your body (academic research here). 

Once you release the stored trauma from your body, your health conditions like frequent headaches, hip pain, gut issues, etc. will begin to subside. Somatic exercises bring your body back into it's natural balanced state.
