Memory, CPTSD and Healing from Autoimmune

“One-way thinking” is often where the problem starts, says our guest Alan Eisenberg; “I’m sick and I’ll always be sick” is a type of “one-way thinking.”

It’s an easy mind trap to fall into. You may have heard your doctor give you a “pronouncement” of “You have “X” and you will always have it – so get use to it!” like I did…. This trap as well as others are important to know, as your healing, no matter, if you heal a little or a lot, often begins in what you believe about your self and your ability to heal.

And all too often, it’s those difficult feelings, thoughts and emotions that are often right under the surface of our public facade that create a lifetime of hardship that doesn’t have to be. It can even make illness worse!  Join us as Sharon Sayler, your host for The Autoimmune Hour on Life Interrupted Radio for his episode’s special guest Alan Eisenberg from In this podcast, Alan shares his own autoimmune story and how memory, trauma and what we think plays into healing.

He also explains:
