As a society, we have been collectively traumatised continually throughout our past and most recent history. Our history echoes out to us, even whilst our future beckons. Speaking from the darkness into the light, a stark voice cries out crisply. Haruko Murakami writes, “And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: According to the Cuna Indians who live on the San Blas islands off the coast of Panama, a part of the soul flies away whenever a person experiences a serious trauma. As a society, we have been collectively traumatised continually throughout our past and most recent history. Our history echoes out to us. The sculptures of our world begin as dreams; it is our mind that brings to us what we have. It is the creation of the mind we see in our world. Our very destiny is being carved by the wisdom of our actions right now – do we keep going as usual, turn around and go backwards, or chart a new enlightened course?

Life is a learning experience. Stressors abound and especially during our early years we have a tendency towards accidents and trauma. First learning to walk, then going up and down stairs, and starting to ride a bike... scabs and bruises were likely a part of your childhood. Part of youth is learning the limits of what our bodies can and cannot do.
Editor's note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Have you ever left the chiropractor's office and thought to yourself, "wow, I never realized those two things were related but it makes sense and I feel so much better"?This frequently happens to many chiropractic patients because chiropractors address and correct the root cause of health concerns. In this article Dr. Brant Pedersen tells his story of falling out a window when he was young, struggling with some health concerns as a teenager and then finally receiving chiropractic care and nutritional advice that changed his life. It made such a profound impression that he decided to become a chiropractor himself, so that he can help others optimize their lives.

Why would a child need to see a chiropractor? Children are healthy and should not have any pain, right? Children do not have years of bad posture imparting unnecessary pressure on their spine. They do not have stress from a ten-hour workday that gives them tension headaches, as do some adults...
Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: In this article Chiropractic Intern Abbey Denaro discusses the importance of chiropractic care for children. People often think that pediatric patients do not need chiropractic care when in fact the birthing process alone can be extremely traumatic on the child's spine and central nervous system. This article provides information on why you should have your child's spine evaluated for subluxations and how children may benefit from chiropractic adjustments.

There are three ways that vertebral subluxations can occur in the spine . These are trauma, toxins and negative thoughts (autosuggestions). Traumas can range from being in a car accident in which a person experiences a whip lash injury to something that seems minor like every day wear and tear through repetitive motions of daily life...
Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: No matter how big or small the trauma the body will protect its self from further injury by creating a grid like matrix in the soft tissue structures which ultimately leads to shortening of the muscles. The increased muscle tension can cause vertebra to be pulled out of alignment causing segmental dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore proper function to the spine and therefore the nervous system is able to flow freely and the body can function at a more optimal level.

I came to the healing practices adapted from indigenous cultures through the path of trauma. I suffered for many years with symptoms of PTSD as a result of childhood abuse. While years of western psychotherapy certainly helped in the development of greater self-awareness and thus gave me the motivation to work on changing old emotional patterns, it was only when I started to explore body-oriented and energy therapies that I began to see truly enduring and deep shifts in my symptoms both short and long-term...
