“With gentle consistency, we will be able to rewire our nervous system." -Dr. Aimie Apigian

Dr. Aimie is a Board-Certified Preventive and Addiction Medicine Physician with a Double Masters in Biochemistry and Public Health. She specializes in trauma, attachment and identifying and reversing the effects of stored emotions in the body and on our health. Having personal experience in foster parenting, adopting and then her own chronic fatigue and autoimmune issues, she has discovered that negative life experiences become our biology, not just psychology. Compromising every system in our biology, these stored emotions cause inflammation, digestive issues and contribute to all disease and aging. Stored emotions become the biggest thief to our health, happiness and aliveness without us ever knowing.A 2-time Summit Host, she is the founder and director of Family Challenge Camps, a weekend intensive for families, and founder and CEO of Trauma Healing Accelerated where she provides education and courses for those wanting to hack their survival systems and accelerate their healing journey from trauma to achieve their best mental and physical health. Her courses include experiential courses for the general public on shifting The Biology of Trauma and a certification coach for those in a healing profession to have more tools for understanding and addressing the Biology of Trauma. In today’s talk we discuss the negative health consequences of stored trauma and steps we can all take to start healing. Make sure to stay until the end when Dr. Aimie takes us through two exercises to reduce overwhelm that will leave you feeling relaxed and expanded.
