Healing Trauma to Lose Weight: What if it’s Not Stress?

You don’t wake up thinking about healing trauma. Maybe you don’t even search for it on your computer at night. You may however, want to lose weight… and be stuck. Perhaps you find that you continually get injured or get repeated bouts of colds or virus. But it’s just stress, right? That’s what we say.

Could your stress really be trauma? And what if that were keeping you from losing weight, or getting regular exercise? 

I’m fine. 

It’s in your head.

Reframe it.

You’ll feel better when you exercise. 

They’ve all been said. You’ve probably said them. 

If you think it’s a lack of discipline, motivation, or that you’re lazy… if you wonder why it isn’t working… again… even doing all the things, then this is for you. It may even be for someone you love or work with. 

My Guest:

Dr. Aimie Apigian, MD, MS, MPH is the leading medical expert on how life experiences get stored in the body and restoring the body to its best state of health through her signature model and methodology, The Biology of Trauma™. She is a double board-certified medical physician in Preventive Medicine and Addiction Medicine. She has a Masters in Biochemistry and a Masters in Public Health. In addition to her medical training, she is also a Certified Functional Medicine physician and has training and certifications specifically in neuro-autoimmunity, nutrition, and genetics for addictions, mental health, and mood and behavioral disorders. She has several certifications in various trauma therapies, including the Instinctual Trauma Response Model (an art trauma therapy), Somatic Experiencing (developed by Dr. Peter Levine), and NeuroAffective Touch (Dr. Aline LaPierre).

Dr. Aimie brings you The Biology of Trauma™: a new lens and a methodology that courageously both adds to and bridges trauma work and medicine by reverse-engineering the chronic effects of trauma on the nervous system and body on a cellular level.

Her personal life experiences led her into trauma therapy training, first for her adopted son, and then for herself. A unique lens for understanding trauma has come out of it, joining the two worlds of neuroscience and trauma therapy uniquely. It became the thread that ties it all together in a way that clinicians and patients find understandable and easily applied within their daily life.

She offers science-based solutions on how to rewire the nervous system with The Biology of Trauma. Accelerating the healing journey through recovery to resilience, presence, and aliveness. Dr. Aimie is the founder and CEO of Trauma Healing Accelerated, offering her foundational online course: “The 21 Day Journey to Calm Aliveness”, which is an experiential journey into the nervous system that is open to all as well as her 8 module certification course for practitioners, “Biology of Trauma” that teaches the protocols of addressing The Biology of Trauma on the different systems of the body.
