Podcasts to enrich your lives.

Who gets sick and how to prevent it.
Dr. Gabor Maté

In this podcast here’s a few things that stood out to me.

  • One who tends to put others emotional needs compulsively above their own
  • People tend to be overidentified with duty, role, and responsibility rather than the needs of themselves
  • People who repress healthy anger (Boundry Defense)
  • We feel it’s our responsible for how other people feel and you must not ever disappoint anybody
  • Humans are trained to go against their Motherly, Natural instincts
  • It’s the attempt to NOT feel pain that makes us sick
  • Commit to your healing– What is important to you?

Stress Triggers
Lack of Control
Lack of information

Learning these stress triggers helps us learn how to better navigate them or provide more information to help the child through a situation.

The child’s brain circuitry is programmed by the Mother’s emotional state.

Dr. Gabor Maté (addiction, stress, and childhood development speaker & bestselling author) joins us to explain which groups of people tend to be most prone to chronic illness, practical ways we can prevent these diagnoses, and the link between childhood trauma and mental & physical health conditions later on in life. He details health conditions you may not know have stress-related causes and explains why healthy attachment and meeting a child’s needs is even more important than we think. Dr. Maté identifies characteristics of those who are prone to chronic illness, reveals why autoimmune diseases predominantly affect women, and discusses the dangers of systematic denial of our emotions. He and Mayim consider the ways well-meaning loving parents can unintentionally create lower level trauma in their kids, how feelings of being unwanted can lead to workaholism, and the limitations of a traditional nuclear family. They discuss Dr. Maté’s time working at a supervised injection site, why most people in the prison system are highly traumatized, and why trauma goes hand-in-hand with addiction.
