Traumatic experiences are becoming more common and disruptive in many lives. The impacts of trauma on a person’s mental and physical health are also becoming more understood. New research even demonstrates how trauma can be passed down through our genes and expressed in our children. Many times various issues such as depression, anxiety, and, even some physical issues, can be linked to developing after a traumatic event. If you have been suffering from some type of medical or mental ailment then your issue could be trauma related.
Often until the trauma is addressed, persistent issues will continue. This can also be tricky due to how diverse and evasive trauma can be to detect or even remember at times.
