Dr. Wendy Myers | Emotional Detox: Is Perfectionism From Trauma Causing Your Health Issues? Biofield Tuning vs. Talk Therapy

“For many people, perfectionism is a response to trauma. It's not that you just want to do everything perfectly. So, when you are a perfectionist, you have this constant inner voice telling you, ‘That's not good enough. You need to do it again.' It's a defense mechanism that we create which can lead to a negative mindset and inner voice that's a constant critic. That can then override these beautiful emotions like joy and love. Your heart resonates so many positive emotions but trauma can really override that in the inner critic.”  – Dr. Wendy Myers

An expert in detoxification and minerals, Wendy Myers, FDN-P, NC, CHHC, returns to Wellness + Wisdom to share her new Emotional Detox Masterclass, how trauma leads to perfectionism, how biofield tuning compares to talk therapy, and how your enneagram personality type impacts how you process trauma.

Are you a perfectionist? Do you identify with being that way?

Do you know someone in your life who is a perfectionist and just can't seem to let go of their strict behaviors?

Discover why perfectionism tendencies are the product of unprocessed and unhealed trauma.

PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.

Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.

PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks

Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.

Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended… on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.

Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being “free range” – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most “free range” turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

Power Quotes From The Show

The genesis of self-hatred comes from how you were treated as a child by your caregivers. You can't talk away these feelings about yourself because many of these negative situations happened before you were even able to intellectualize them. @MyersDetoxClick To Tweet

Over 65% of Health Issues Caused by Emotional Trauma

“In my research, I found that emotional trauma causes over 65% of physical health issues. It's really a bigger issue than I expected for both little ‘t' and big ‘T' trauma. There will be people with extreme cases such as PTSD but what's more common is childhood attachment trauma or developmental trauma because of an abusive or neglecting parent. This creates a cycle of stress in the body and a person can then develop a high-stress set point where they can be more sensitive to a stressor than the next person and it causes this cascade of stress hormones that can lead to this whole biological domino effect in the gut and brain.” – Dr. Wendy Myers

The Genesis of Self-Hatred

“The genesis of self-hatred comes from how you were treated as a child by your primary caregivers. The reason why you can't talk or intellectualize away these negative feelings about yourself or your parents as an adult is because many of these abusive or neglectful situations happened before you were even able to intellectualize or verbalize them. As a child, you were not even consciously aware of what was happening and that is why talking about them doesn't really work. A lot of people aren't even aware that they still have these issues and you don't have to know what happened to you or what your negative emotions are to tune them out of your energy field.” – Dr. Wendy Myers

How Different Enneagram Personality Types Respond to Trauma

“So many of us have this negative inner voice that can creep in and in the Emotional Detox program, we explore the different enneagram personality types that people have and how this changes their response to trauma. Based on the trauma that you have, your different personality trait(s) might be expressed. Some such as Type 1 or Type 3 might become perfectionists in response to trauma.” – Dr. Wendy Myers

About Dr. Wendy Myers

Dr. Wendy Myers | Emotional Detox: Is Perfectionism From Trauma Causing Your Health Issues? Biofield Tuning vs. Talk TherapyWendy Myers, FDN-P, NC, CHHC is an expert in detoxification and minerals.

She is passionate about educating the public on the importance of long term detoxing considering our toxic world. She healed her own health issues through hair mineral analysis and developed a unique detox and supplement program. Wendy wants to help others do the same.

Wendy’s interest in nutrition began with the death of her father from esophageal cancer. Intuitively, she knew his chemo, radiation, and ten medications killed him prematurely. She vowed to find out what made him sick, why he died, what role medications played in his demise, and how she could avoid the same fate. The more Wendy learned, the more she realized that all the answers to health do not lie in our medical system. Food, detoxification and natural healing modalities must be used to compliment the advances in modern medicine.
