      Hormones: A Portal for Looking at Trauma Robin Nielsen

    It is the experience of overwhelm that impacts the body the most. Overwhelm from past experiences, even in childhood – feeling like you don’t belong, feeling different, feeling that you’re unlovable – may not be something you would recognize as trauma in your life.

    Trauma has lasting effects on our body and on our biology; it often goes unrecognized because we’re thinking that it is still stress or emotion, rather than realizing how it underlies different diagnoses and symptoms: burnout, depression, anxiety, PTSD, pain, weight gain, gut issues, trouble sleeping, chronic fatigue…

    Even if you are doing all the treatments, therapy and meditation, stored trauma in the body can keep you stuck in fear, insecurity and inflammation. Many people understand that stress affects their physical health, but awareness of the Biology of Trauma is something that many people have yet to uncover.

    We invite you to discover a new view of trauma and the human body alongside expert guidance designed to empower you with the knowledge and tools you need for the trauma healing journey.

    You can stop your endless searching. This will be your roadmap to your best health and your best self.

    The Biology of Trauma 2.0 could help you:

    • Safely reconnect with your body
    • Be able to use trauma as a gift rather than a setback
    • Move beyond trauma-informed models to growth & wellness
    • Protect your emotional well-being
    • Choose the appropriate trauma therapy tools for you
    • Improve your sleep & reduce inflammation
    • Build authentic relationships
    • Go through difficult life events without them overwhelming or crushing you
    • Integrate biology into trauma therapy for faster, better results
    • And so much more!

    Our group of event experts bridging the worlds of mental health, trauma therapy, neuroscience and functional medicine, will explore the emotional, psychological and physiological aspects of trauma and trauma recovery. Combining expert interviews, LIVE daily Zoom meetings with Dr. Aimie, 19 LIVE workshops led by special guest speakers PLUS a Biology of Trauma Facebook group, this unique event will provide knowledge, support and practical tools for patients and practitioners alike!

She is the leading medical expert on addressing stored trauma in the body through her signature model and methodology, The Biology of Trauma™: a new lens that courageously uplevels the old methods of trauma work and medicine by reverse-engineering trauma's effects on the nervous system and body on a cellular level. 


    Dr. Apigian specialized in trauma, attachment and addictions after having personal experience in foster parenting, adopting and then having her own health issues that were a result of childhood and life experiences. In addition to her medical studies that include functional medicine certification, she has sought out trauma therapy training since 2015.  

     

    A three-time summit host, Dr. Apigian founded the nonprofit Family Challenge Camps, where she developed and ran weekend intensives for families with children who have experienced attachment trauma. She is currently the founder and CEO of Trauma Healing Accelerated, where she bridges the worlds of functional medicine and trauma therapy with a mission to help adults accelerate the healing journey by addressing the biological processes that keep stored trauma stuck in the body, mind and spirit. Her providers certification course teaches providers to do the same for their clients.
