Generational trauma. What is it? How does it affect health even if you haven’t experienced much trauma in your own life? I think it’s super important to bring wider awareness to this and because it can and does impact health.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

• Epigenetics: a powerful tool and healing generational trauma

• The role of environmental toxins

• How trauma of past generations is stored in your body

• The role of systemic oppression and generational trauma

• The fight, flight or freeze response and health

• I also mentioned podcast episode 26 on environmental toxins which you can find here.

Here is a link to the book I mentioned, The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel Van Der Kolk, M.D.

I’m Kelly Wilson, owner of and I’m a personal trainer, nutrition coach, behavior change specialist, autoimmune disease educator and I’ve worked in the health and fitness industry for over 25 years.

I’m here to help you ditch the gimmicks, finding strength through your struggles, give you the knowledge for making the smartest choices for your own health and to remind you to celebrate victory all along the way. We are in the middle of a miniseries on all aspects of trauma. If you haven’t heard the first two, I highly recommend those and there will be two more episodes after this week.
