  • Discover how trauma is an energy problem, manifesting when the body perceives a threat it may not have the energy to confront
  • Learn about the dorsal vagal response in the autonomic nervous system that can result in a low-energy state, impacting the body’s systems and metabolism
  • Understand how light therapy can bring energy into a system stuck in a chronic trauma or freeze response without draining existing energy

Welcome to this interview on the biology of Trauma 3.0, where we are going over the trauma disease connection and the path of freedom. In this interview, we’re going to talk about mitochondria. Now the body can go into a chronic state of trauma. We call that the chronic freeze response. And one way we can recognize it is through the physical health problems that we are experiencing. One of the core principles of a biology of trauma is that trauma is an energy problem. A trauma response happens as a result of the body syncing to the autonomic nervous system, that it doesn’t have enough energy to meet that problem or that threat. In response, it shuts the body’s systems and metabolism down through what’s called a dorsal vagal response. That’s right. You heard the vagus nerve in there and it impacts our mitochondria and causes a low energy state. So now what’s happened is that the body only does the bare minimum to get through life because it doesn’t have the energy.
