Description

This week on The Less Stressed Life Podcast, I am joined by  Heather Deranja, RD. Heather bravely shares her own story of autoimmune and cervical cancer diagnoses as well as how she began her journey as a Registered Dietician and why she transitioned into the human behavior component of the healing process.   Heather dives into autoimmunity, the nervous system, brain, trauma, and all the emotions of facing our past to better our future.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Stress and autoimmune link
  • Stress and gastro distress
  • What's going on in your head is affecting everything else
  • Stress effect on mitochondria
  • The identity of our autoimmune disorder and how it affects us "becomes us"
  • Resistance mode- what is it and why is it a problem ask yourself, "How am I contributing to the outcomes?"
  • The stigma around trauma- it's not only "big trauma" that affects us
  • Basic human needs are essential for us to be efficient and have healthy relationships in our lives
  • Having awareness is the first step in being able to change


GUEST SHARED HELPFUL TIPS ON:

  • Changing neuro pathways and overcoming resistance
  • Creating silence to access the inner guidance (can not bulldoze through life)
  • Finding your inner child "gatekeeper" to how you are as an adult
  • How do we realize our own trauma for self-awareness?
  • How to start addressing past trauma (30 min by yourself to disconnecting, nature, permission to have the thoughts come and go without judgment)
  • Take inventory of trauma, find patterns
  • Creating a basic needs document / Journaling to get it out
  • Removing the shame and guilt
  • Identify the perspective you're coming from, evaluate and retrain the brain/rewrite the narrative
