How to Heal Childhood Trauma & Why Some Don't

Marriage and Family Therapist and trauma survivor Tamara Ridge discusses six reasons why some people do not heal their childhood trauma (post traumatic stress disorder) and gives tips for how to avoid these mistakes, so you can improve your mental health. Tamara includes examples of what to do when triggered, questions to ask yourself, how to stay in present time, when it’s most effectively to talk about – or not talk about the trauma. (Hint: talking about your childhood trauma AFTER the specific triggers are healed is the best way to heal the grief that trauma causes for adults with adverse childhood experiences.)

Childhood trauma and the stresses that come afterward often lead to magnesium deficiency (most Americans are already magnesium deficient, according to research). Luckily, magnesium absorbs into the skin and a nice warm – not hot – soak for 20 minutes before bed can create calm in the body and enhance sleep. This soak is high grade and well absorbed:
