EFT-Matrix Reimprinting offers a possible solution to the question posed in this video – now we know that severe early childhood trauma can ruin our health and happiness – what can we do about it?

In this video Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris offers the shocking facts she discovered about the effects of such trauma – in our work with EFT Tapping and Matrix Reimprinting we work with clients – young and adult – who may find healing from the past.

“Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.” From Ted Talks

She gives us hope for the future:
“Today, we are beginning to understand how to interrupt the progression from early adversity to disease and early death, and 30 years from now, the child who has a high ACE score and whose behavioral symptoms go unrecognized, whose asthma management is not connected, and who goes on to develop high blood pressure and early heart disease or cancer will be just as anomalous as a six-month mortality from HIV/AIDS”.
