Trauma comes in several forms and may be felt and held deeply in many different parts of the body. Whether it’s trauma experienced in childhood or a shock to the system from a car accident or act of violence, integrative psychiatrist Dr. Omid Naim, tells us “We can completely recover from trauma.” Did you hear that? We have hope.
Today, host of The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru, sits down with Dr. Naim from Hope Integrative Psychiatry and La Maida Institute in Los Angeles, CA to discuss many topics that penetrate us to our cores. They discuss the nature of community and why it’s important, including how Dr. Naim has ditched his car and has become comfortable asking for rides from time to time.
They also dig into the controversial topic of treating depression by using a variety of modalities—and digging into the root cause of the depression—rather than using medications alone or as the only option.
I know you’ll love all the educational information from this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as much as I did.
