It’s part of the human condition to run away from pain. Most of us have habits that we acquired as a way to cope with painful childhood experiences or traumas, which unfortunately don’t serve us as adults. These habits can manifest as addiction in a wide variety of forms, from substance abuse to overworking.
If you feel a sense of deep guilt, without recognizing the source of it, you’re not alone. As children we pick up the energy around us, start to think things are our fault, and we don’t know how to drop that feeling as we grow up. This has a very heavy impact on our emotional, mental, and physical health.
In today’s mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Gabor Mate and Dr. Nicole LePera about detangling our traumatic life experiences to live more aware lives.
Dr. Gabor Mate, is a retired physician who, after 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience, worked for over a decade in Vancouver’s Downtown EastSide with patients challenged by drug addiction and mental illness. Dr. Mate is the bestselling author of four books published in twenty-five languages, and is an internationally renowned speaker highly sought after for his expertise on addiction, trauma, childhood development, and the relationship of stress and illness.
Dr. Nicole LePera was trained in clinical psychology at Cornell University and the New School for Social Research. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, Dr. LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients—and for herself—she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves. She is the creator of the #SelfHealers movement where people from around the world are joining together in community to take healing into their own hands. She is also the author of How to Do the Work: Recognize Your Patterns, Heal from Your Past, and Create Your Self.

Saunas are expensive, but they can be a gamechanger. In fact, sauna use can reduce inflammation, stress, and improve detoxification and energy production down to the cellular level. But sometimes we can’t break the bank to make this happen. So when I was introduced to the portable HigherDose Infrared Sauna blanket and Infrared PEMF mat, I got super excited because it’s actually an affordable way to get all of the benefits of sauna use including increased blood flow, better sleep, a calmer nervous system, and way more.
