Bleep Bulimia Episode 81 with Anissa Hudak Founder of the Trauma Healing Yoga Therapy Program
Anissa said she began taking yoga lessons. She had no intention of teaching.
Anissa lived in a large active Military community. She decided to support the community and realized she had to start by helping herself.
Trauma was not a stranger in Anissa's life. She says she knows it intimately. Among the traumas, she is a bereaved mother and a two-time rape survivor. She says today her mat is her best friend, her confidant.
Anissa's healing programs deal with working PTSD out of the body. She says you have to treat the whole person. She explains that this kind of yoga therapy is not for anyone. There are different types of yoga. There are therapeutic yogas, and these are specialized. Anissa's is specific to PTSD. People with PTSD either live in the future or in the past. The goal is to have them live in the present.
To the eating disorder, Anissa says it is abuse and addictive behaviour, and typically they arise from trauma, be it several small traumas, or large ones.

My life has been intertwined with PTSD/Trauma and the military. Not only am I the daughter of a Vietnam Veteran, I was also married to an active duty member (and Iraq/Afghanistan Veteran) for over 20 years. For 3 years, I volunteered at the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Riley, Kansas providing yoga therapy, meditation, and other holistic treatments to the soldiers, family members, and staff. After seeing others struggle, and having my own personal struggles with trauma/PTSD, I was inspired to create the Trauma Healing Yoga Therapy Program.
As a Yoga Therapist and founder of the Trauma Healing Yoga Therapy Program, I guide others in the use of effective, science-based yoga therapy and other holistic techniques for the management/healing of symptoms relating to PTSD and trauma for people who want to control their PTSD - not allow it to control them.
Recently, I have focused my efforts on working with women who have been sexually traumatized to help them heal their PTSD (and other trauma-related issues) with yoga therapy. As a 2x rape survivor, I intimately understand the needs these women face and help them navigate their healing journeys.
I earned my 200 RYT, 500 RYT and was awarded my Certification in Yoga Therapy from the International Association of Yoga Therapy. Additionally, I have completed a 120 Hour YogaFit Warriors training and the MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) online course through the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Currently a student with the Phoenix Rising School of Yoga Therapy, I'm learning another approach to utilizing yoga to help release trauma from the body. I work with people with all types of physical conditions, however, I specialize in working with those suffering from PTSD, TBI’s, and all trauma-related issues and have been for over the past 5 years.

Bleep Bulimia Episode 80 with Alison Rothman Founder of Embody My Life - Sharing Her Story of Recovery
Beautiful episode with Alison who shares about her eating disorder and her journey to recovery. What an amazing story about using holistic practices to heal. As I often say, this podcast is about finding the RIGHT solution for YOU. Alison's story is one that speaks to using our life experiences to heal and recover.
Alison speaks to the combination of how this holistic yoga, meditation, walking, art and group, nutrition therapy... and more. It was accessing yourself from so many angles. I love that.
Alison wrote an article about addiction recovery and wrote about being a "recovered addict" and was called on that by someone. The person's vision was "once an addict always an addict", and Alison disagrees. I agree with Alison. Recovery is achievable when it comes to eating disorders.
I truly am always grateful for my guests who share their stories about their own journeys, and I do hope that my listeners feel the same.
"Allow this eating disorder to release its grip on us..." What powerful words. And OH MY GOSH being weighed at a young age and being tall? I could relate so much! Stories Alison shared that were so parallel.
Please visit Alison at www.embodymylife.com
Alison always has various programs, retreats, and offerings running so she is just putting her website there for simplicity!
She does have a FREE Guided Meditation on her website if you sign up for her email list.

Bleep Bulimia Episode 79 with Spencer Bishins Author of Social Security Disability Revealed and Eating Disorders Categorized
Very interesting conversation with Spencer. Who knew that Social Assistance was available to people with eating disorders? I know I am in Canada, however, I think the conversation about mental health and how Bulimia falls under this category, is really important for my listeners to know, globally.

The site includes the book overview, where to purchase, and links to both interviews and Spencer's social media links.

Bleep Bulimia Episode 78 with Greg Wieting Healer on Metabolizing Your Trauma
Unpack and heal your trauma with Greg. He helps people feel the pain to be able to metabolize it.
Can we create our own trauma? Why do we hide our trauma?
Greg speaks to relationships with others being so important.
Greg works with people to connect to their inate wisdom.
These notes will never be able to clearly define Greg's own wisdom and the wonderful responses to the questions I ask him. Listen from start to finish to hear those in-depth answers to questions I asked that were not so simple to find an answer to.
Being able to feel some really hard things needs to be done slowly, and that is a part of healing.
You can reach Greg at https://www.gregwieting.com or at https://www.prismamethod.com
More about PRISMA:
The PRISMA Course is the owner's manual and roadmap for mental, emotional, and spiritual health. An online community offers travel companions, guided meditations are the built-in GPS and a self-care energy medicine foundation training is the vehicle needed for a lifetime of healing.
This is an arc of transformation to heal the anxiety and depression rooted in trauma.
More about Greg:
Greg is most compelled by the intersection of all things leadership, healing, purpose, and performance.
He loves to discuss the bridge between entrepreneurship and spirituality and how leadership can be used as a healing force for good.
Greg is also interested in exploring the state of mental health in America and why we have a sick-care, not a healthcare system that’s in crisis. And he brings a unique take on how to effectively heal the trauma that underlies anxiety, depression, and chronic pain without chasing or suppressing symptoms.
Greg can geek out on neuroscience, energy medicine, and mindfulness making it practical, relevant, accessible, and fun. :)
