I’m back today with a repeat guest Dr. Wendy Myers. Dr. Wendy is a naturopathic doctor and founder of MyersDetox.com. She specializes in heavy metal detox and is a bioenergetics expert. And she’s also the bestselling author of Limitless Energy: How to Detox Toxic Metals to End Exhaustion and Chronic Fatigue.
Our topic’s focus today is on her work with detoxing and bioenergetics and how they can help with emotional traumas. There’s actually a lot of science behind how our physical health is directly impacted by our emotional experiences. Even if we’ve blocked it out or don’t remember.
Almost everyone has had an emotionally traumatic experience at some point, even if it doesn’t seem that big. Dr. Wendy goes over the research connecting these traumas (even seemingly little ones) with specific body parts and organs and how they cause disease, especially cancer. We also talk a lot about what we can do on a practical level to resolve trauma and bring about physical healing.
This is something I’ve had personal experience with and in many ways it was the missing piece in my healing process. Once I started working on the emotional side of things my physical health finally started falling into place after years of having my diet and supplements dialed in. There’s so much to this topic and I’m excited to share our chat with you today!
