Speaker: Teresa Boardwine, RH (AHG) Responses to trauma vary: numbness and inability to experience feelings; extreme sadness; inability to concentrate; physical symptoms, etc. These feelings are a normal part of grieving and recovering from any trauma. If they persist for more than two weeks or begin to interfere with daily living, they are symptoms of a more serious episode of depression. This is a heightened reaction to an abnormal situation, not a character flaw or sign of personal weakness. The healing process takes time. Besides the usual recommendations to talk to friends and family, limit news exposure, keep to a daily routine of nourishing meals and plenty of rest, and get help if you need it, herbs can have a soothing effect on the whole system. Recommendations are included for soothing teas, herbal bathing, massage using essential oils, and aromatherapy. All can have a marked effect on speeding recovery and restoring balance.
