In this latest podcast, Elizabeth talks to Atiq Bhatti of 'The Homeopathy Health Show' about her work as a volunteer homeopath in former war-torn countries which inspired her to write her book, Touching Base with Trauma. This podcast shares how it has informed her practice in the more than six years since it was published. She explains how she has also dedicated time to working with with survivors of Grenfell as part of the SideBySide team. What comes across is how one does not have to have endured disasters or wars to experience trauma but how it can be transmitted across the generations. This is so often a much overlooked feature of a case and, unless addressed, not only does the case remain unhealed but the process can also persist.
A homeopathic approach to trauma
My interview with Eugénie Krüger Homeopathy describes the origin of my interest in trauma and work in bringing my three dimensional model of healing to address the increasingly complex diseases we encounter today.

Remaining Resilient in Times of Shift.
How can we hold on to ourselves in times of shift?
Samuel Hahnemann, the discoverer of homeopathy, gave the definition of health as 'being able to adapt to changes'. With a new paradigm settling in since the millenium, is this too great an expectation to ask or how can we find our resilience in times of change?
What attendees have said about previous events
I am writing to you by way of gratitude for sharing with me your most helpful workshop last July on trauma.
With the intent of encouragement to you to continue your valuable work through homeopathy is also a reason to write to you.
Your trauma workshop led me to the most helpful and effective remedies like Berlin Wall, Hura, Mancinella, Manganum, etc., etc. I had reason to apply most of these in situations over the past year with beautiful results. Deadlock was released in situations, new directions came about, physical healing occurred - really what I am trying to say is that these remedies by way of your guidance had huge positive impact with clients and with myself and my family also.
What it takes is courage and listening to and honouring our potential as practitioners and catalysts in the world.

Touching base with trauma - reaching across the generations, 24 June 2018

Review by Karen Seyersted MARH
I somehow came to the seminar with the expectation that Elizabeth would lecture on what she has written in the book. However, Elizabeth's work is in constant progress and she went deeper and revealed new aspects of not only trauma, but a variety of common problems we meet in practice. Also, she gave small or largely unknown remedies a fuller picture - highly relevant both for professional and personal development.
Elizabeth Adalian claims that 98% of disease comes from epigenetics and only 2% from the DNA itself. Stress is a relatively new complaint only mentioned in medical literature from 1930 onwards. Shedding light on relevant research inspires to study more!
Based on the idea that what is not dealt with is passed on, and that when the pivot of distress is addressed and treated, the dynamics are changed, we received small gems such as: The hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal axis is calibrated at birth. Trauma response is set in place from that time onwards and will have a more severe effect if occurring before a child has developed language, and indeed if it was a result of intentional harm. Behind miasms lie unexpressed trauma and unconscious messages which are passed down. In addition, drug layers, toxic overload and vaccinations all play roles, as do the state of the blood brain barrier and the microbiome.
From susceptibility, stress and resilience, she talks about how we may 'change history' if not only trauma in the patient and her/his family, but also family secrets are addressed. The main message I left with is that family secrets are toxic, and what is not dealt with, even in previous generations, is passed on.
My wish is, of course, that such knowledge could reach a wider audience as it is is so relevant and useful for many patients. Imagine GPs, counsellors and (child) psychologists having this kind of knowledge, connecting trauma in a parent or grandparent to a child's symptoms. Not to mention using remedies to support the journey from disease to better health.
I highly recommend reading Touching Base with Trauma and, if given the opportunity, attending a future seminar with Elizabeth Adalian.
