Using Nutrition To Heal Trauma

 

Discover practical nutrition techniques to help to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress after trauma by restoring the gut-brain axis

Video Poster Image

Most people don’t know that nutrition can help reverse the effects of trauma.

A trauma response often leads to a low appetite or dysregulated eating which can compromise the already dysregulated nervous system, according to naturopathic physician, Vanessa Ruiz (Hall, 2015; Vanzhula, 2019).

Whatsmore, chronic stress and trauma can force the body into a hypermetabolic state where it prioritizes foods that are calorie-dense rather than nutrient-dense (Kuijer, 2012).

This is why survivors of trauma often experience unstoppable cravings for foods high in sugar, fat, and salt, which aren’t conducive to healing (Kuijer, 2012).

In fact, these foods can perpetuate cortisol production which can, in turn, weaken the gut lining, reducing nutrient absorption while increasing inflammation (Duong, 2012; Sylvia, 2018).

Thankfully, there is a way we can leverage nutrition to reverse these effects and return the body back to autoregulation.

This is why Rewire Therapy brings together top experts in holistic and trauma-informed nutrition into a new cutting-edge program that shows trauma survivors and therapists how.
