In early September I was contacted at the last minute for much needed surgery for which I was on a wait list. With less than 24 hours’ notice, I had little time to prepare but it all worked out. A few weeks after, while continuing my recovery, I realized two things: my emotions were a little tender, and, suddenly I developed mild insomnia.
Now, having taken strong pain medication and gravol, I slept at various times of the day and at times for many hours. My circadian clock was knocked out of sync. The trauma of surgery left my brain slightly out of balance. As soon as I was well enough, I had 2 Brainwave Optimization® sessions with special attention to sleep and emotion. Having already optimized my brain previously, it only took the 2 sessions to restore sleep and calm the teary emotions (I had found myself crying at stories on The Voice, now not so much!!) I am thankful for this technology and blessed to be of service to others.
Have you had trauma? Some say to me, “I am ok; I have never had a trauma”. We all have. You see, trauma is not only a result of car accidents, severe abuse, witnessing a horrific event, etc. Lesser events such as loss of a loved one, loss of job, bullying, divorce of self or parents, surgery, and even a difficult birth, or a minor bump on the head can leave a trauma print on your brain which can create an imbalance that can get “stuck”.
The results of this can be sleep disturbance, anxiety, inability to focus or to manage stress, depression, anger, and the list goes on. If you would like to learn about your brain, schedule a personalized Brainwave Assessment and I can create a blueprint for you to attain balance and harmony, helping you sleep better, stay more calm, increase your attention, manage anger and much more!
One client said, “I feel like I am released from prison!” – someone who had emotional stress.
Food Addiction – worse than cocaine? That’s what a recent study is claiming. You may have heard of the “Oreo cookie” study. Here is an article in the Huffington Post.
Dr. Guang Sun, researcher at St. John’s University in Newfoundland states, “…past studies have looked at the brain images and brain responses to food, and found that the images from obese people with food addiction closely resembled the brain images of drug users”.
A recent study from St. John’s indicates that 1 in 20 Canadians have food addictions. Read more here.
An imbalance caused by trauma could be a big factor for addictive tendencies. If you believe you have these tendencies, contact me for more information on how we can help!
