EMDR is a state of the art tool to help you get relief from unresolved trauma
What you are doing with EMDR is moving your eyes side-to-side while you are thinking about a negative stressful situation related to your trauma. Doing these eye movements seems to discharge the negative energy that a person has attached to the thoughts.

In a study comparing EMDR with Prozac, the researchers found that the group on Prozac did slightly better than a control group that received a sugar pill. With the placebo group about 30-42 percent showed improvement. The Prozac group had 35-57 percent showing improvement. With EMDR, the patients didn’t just improve. The researchers found eight months after the EMDR treatments stopped that 60% of the patients were completely cured while only 1 in 10 of the Prozac patients were cured. Also, please note the patient’s taking Prozac could only maintain their improvement by continuing to take Prozac. The researchers also found that EMDR worked best on traumatic events that occured when the patient was an adult. Both EMDR and Prozac were quite a bit less effective for childhood trauma.
For individuals who are experiencing military related PTSD, the researchers found that 12 EMDR sessions were needed to assist the patients in healing. EMDR is an approved treatement by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

I use tools like body-focused techniques, guided chakra meditation, vibrational repatterning, archetypal imagery and breath brings deep relaxation and help you connect to yourself thought reflection and contemplation.
Mindful nourishment therapy addresses diet, exercise and supplementation that may support the brain in recovering from trauma.
Commiting to work on unresolved trauma takes courage. Often we overlook the role that food plays in anxious thoughts, moods and bodily discomforts.
