Metabolizing Trauma With Intention
Metabolizing Trauma with Intention
In this episode, Lyndsay Soprano speaks with Dr. Laila Contractor about how we can metabolize trauma(s) with intention and the use of ayahuasca as a key component to helping to heal from all that you might be holding onto that is making you chronically ill and living in pain.
Dr. Contractor is an Integrative Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatrist in Irvine California. She works collaboratively with her patients using traditional as well as evidenced-based alternative approaches to the treatment of Psychiatric challenges.
Dr. Contractor’s specialties include treating children and adults with learning difficulties, trauma, and “resistent” mood disorder treatment. Given her specialties, she has a keen interest in using psychedelics to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, and Pain. Dr. Contractor’s own personal journey dealing with chronic pain, autoimmune issues, and complex diagnosis brought her to the world of Integrative Medicine.
We talk about the use of psychedelics for the accelerated treatment of trauma and the deepening of spirituality. We also touch on brain regions involved in pain pathways, such as the prefrontal cortex, hippocampus (memory area), and amygdala, which are similar to those involved in mood disorders.
This is why it is so imperative to treat psychiatric disorders in the context of chronic pain. The importance of validating our patient’s experiences as part of the healing process as well.
