Trauma Treatments: A Helpful Guide To Healing Your Pain Naturally

You’ve been struggling with trauma for some time now. You feel unable to move forward or talk about the pain you’re experiencing. Quality Recovery is here to help you find solutions without resorting to the heavy drugs which could lead you down an unhealthy path.

This post discusses the different types of traumas from a realistic perspective, so please read on!

What is Trauma, and How Does It Manifest in Your Body?

Trauma is a type of pain that stays with you. It compels your brain to recall painful and challenging events. Your body reacts as though the trauma has happened again, but it’s still only stuck in the past.

Trauma causes include warfare, sexual assault, and even witnessing a death, and the physical effects of increased blood pressure and heart rate. These symptoms are hallmark signs of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), an illness that’s become more prevalent with veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan.

Here’s a list of 3 types of trauma:

  1. Acute trauma is caused by one event, either stressful or dangerous, like a car accident or witnessing a murder.
  2. Many events can cause chronic trauma over time; examples are domestic violence victims, abused for years before finally finding the strength to leave their abuser.
  3. Developmental trauma or secondary trauma results from witnessing one’s parents or other role models go through traumatic events.

People respond differently to traumatic events. Their responses branch into emotional and psychological responses like anger and physical reactions like sweating or fatigue.

The Benefits of Natural Healing – and What to Expect from Treatments:

If you or a loved one suffers from trauma, you may not know where to start or what treatments are available, but it is possible to heal naturally.

A natural approach helps the trauma patients work through their feelings instead of burying them with medication. Some medications can worsen the symptoms over time.

Therapy is the first line for treatment, with the patient and trauma-focused therapist working together. Here we mention two types of therapy programs:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT helps you work through your feelings and change how you think about them. You learn how to handle situations that make things worse, such as loud noises or crowds of people. CBT is effective for general anxiety disorders and PTSD.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR involves the patient briefly reliving the traumatic event while the therapist directs their eye movements to process it more thoroughly and put it into perspective.

Treatment and Self-Care

Along with therapy, focusing on yourself is essential for trauma relief. Quality Recovery has compiled a list of recommendations for you:

  • Exercise: especially aerobics, as it releases endorphins and relieves stress.
  • Meditation: thoughtful breathing/exercises can help reduce negative emotions, improve focus, and lower blood pressure.
  • Connections with loved ones: even without talking about your trauma, spending time with your loved ones can make you feel better.
  • Balanced routine: sleeping for 7 to 9 hours every night, maintaining a healthy diet, and avoiding alcohol and drugs.
