Dr. Sagan works at my treatment facility, Alo House Recovery Centers, and practices the mind-body connection modality when it comes to healing addiction and mental illness. The typical approach to psychiatry is failing many people. But thought leaders like Dr. Sagan are changing the community for the better. In this episode, we talk about medication vs. natural healing, chemical imbalances vs. environmental factors causing mental illness, learning to self-regulate our thoughts, repressed memories, and the flight or fight response.Dr. Sagan explains the difference between early childhood trauma and trauma later in life, and how that affects our nervous systems. She explains how our limbic systems are trained to react a certain way, and we need to learn to undo these responses. Having a supportive community really helps. We also talk about how to navigate repressed memories. Our brains are protecting us, but sometimes we need to work through these hard moments. I still have triggers, and have been through my own journey with psychiatric medication and TMS therapy. But thank God psychiatry and medication is an option.
