Why your brain might need healing…

I spent 10 minutes belly crawling with all of my kids today, and I felt like I was going to throw up afterwards. It wasn’t because I was ill, or because my tummy really hurt–my head hurt so bad that it made me want to puke. Belly crawling does something to the brain. It brings up emotions we felt when we were pre-verbal and couldn’t tell anybody that we were sad or scared or needed to be taken care of. If we keep belly crawling long enough, it helps us deal with those emotions, rather than stuffing them…More on How to Heal the Brain later. For now, why might someone’s brain need to be healed?

1. Head Injury

This is an obvious one, so let’s get it out of the way. Head injuries can cause all kinds of issues. If you’ve fallen on your head or face, had something heavy drop on your head, been in a car accident, etc., there may be underlying problems going on that you don’t even think about. Trouble sleeping? Loss of appetite? Moodiness? Your brain is a precious organ–and yet, when it is hurt, most of the time, doctors do nothing about it. Think twice about “brushing off” a head injury just because it didn’t cause the eyes to stop dilating, or because you can remember your Birthday and hop on one foot….If the brain was injured, it may need some therapies to heal it…

2. Past Trauma

Were you hurt? Physically abused? Sexually abused? Emotionally abused? There is evidence that when a child is abused, their brain growth is stunted. This is through no fault of your own, and your brain can be healed!

3. Neglect
