Listen to it on your favorite podcast provider: 



What if I told you you can repair your mind from past trauma?

We usually hear of people coping with trauma never fixing it, well it came as a surprise to me as well when my guest in this episode shared that it's not only possible but he has centered his work around that very topic, Dr. Don Wood has a PhD in clinical, counseling & applied psychology and has developed the Inspired Performance Institute after spending years researching how trauma affects our minds and our lives.

Dr. Wood began to understand that events and experiences throughout our lifetime continue to play a role in how we experience life in the present. He also realized that there was a better way of treating the issue.

“Teaching people to live with, manage and cope with daily stress doesn’t fix the problem. The solution comes from understanding it’s source and providing a long-term permanent solution”.

Dr. Wood has written two books about his research including the science about how our minds work and why we experience our own unique perspective of the world. Both books are focused on how we can all make the desired changes by allowing our mind to reset and reboot.

In this episode we discuss:
👉 How trauma affects humans
👉 How to fix trauma
👉 Beta brain waves vs alpha brain waves
👉 Understanding the root causes of addiction & self-harm
👉 How to best coupe with trauma
👉 And much more!

If you want to better understand your trauma or of someone you love, this episode will help guide you to that understanding.
