An Explanation of Trauma and Its Healing

Traumatic experiences for a person are life encounters where emotions have taken the better part of a person than reasoning, and most therapists know about this. This is irrational because our basic neurological wiring for survival starts to dictate our behavior. When good reasoning shuts down, this transcending traumatic despair that is scary, frightening, painful, and not bound by time, takes place. The irrational behavior displayed by a person who has undergone trauma is a behavior of survival because when one is confronted with something that reminds them of that traumatic incident, the rational sense of past and future shuts down and the emotions take over.

When the brain does not want to resolve the trauma, the results is a state where there is visual imagery, rapid observation, and complex breathing.

The therapist then has to device a way to help the patient recover their rational brain function so that they can think clearly and start accepting that the traumatic experience is past and there is no longer any threat of talking bout it. The therapist must resolve this problem.
The Best Advice on Resources I’ve found

When a person is under trauma, there are certain stress chemicals that the body produces that has no outlet. When the adrenals receive a distress message from the brain, these stress responses are triggered, and adrenaline and cristol are released, which are hormones commonly called fight or flight response hormones. This precautionary hormone must be dissipated so that if the person is placed in a situation where he cannot fight and cannot flee, if he is trapped and stuck, the person freezes. This then is trauma.
Where To Start with Options and More

There is a boost of oxygen and glucose supply to the brain and muscles when the fight or flight hormones are released into the blood stream. This results in the dilation of the blood vessels and air passages. In other words, the body is able to pass more blood to the muscles and get more oxygen into the lungs. So instead of injecting the patient for relaxants and other medication, let him do physical exercise in order to dispel hormonal disorders and prevent the patient from suffering chemical imbalance in the brain.

Another helpful approach is learning how to relax the body. If you are more relaxes, then you are more rational than emotional. This is the reason why a lot of trauma therapy is based on pairing a relaxed state of the body and the mind. Exposure to traumatic memories can then be included in the trauma healing sessions. With an objective mind, the trauma healing can have more success.
