Trauma - The Invisible Epidemic - with Dr. Paul Conti | The Empowering Neurologist EP. 151
Listen now
Trauma in our lives has lasting effects both in terms of our mental and physical wellbeing. Trauma, and its running partner, shame, affect our metabolism, our immune function, and even our gene expression. Further, trauma accelerates multiple markers of aging.   On the podcast today, I have the opportunity to spend time with Paul Conti, MD, author of the new book, Trauma, the Invisible Epidemic,  with a foreword by Lady Gaga. It’s a powerful look behind the curtain at the role of trauma in our lives, and fortunately, it provides helpful tools, for all of us, to deal with its lingering effects. The book explores trauma both through the lens of Dr. Conti as a professional as well as what has transpired in his own life that led him to explore the importance of this issue.    I am certain this program will offer benefit and hope to many.   ==== TIMESTAMPS: 0:00 Intro 3:10 Getting to the Root Causes 15:20 Passing on Trauma to Others 27:30 Empowerment & Agency 32:30 the Limbic System 36:20 Trauma in the World Today 42:09 Urgency to Heal 48:56 Conclusion ====   Paul Conti, MD, is a graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine.
