    Unmasking Triggers: Reactivating Hidden Viruses and Infections

    Dr. Motley and Courtney discuss how triggers can reactivate latent viruses and infections in the body, leading to various health issues. They explore the impact of life events, exposures, and emotions on these triggers. Topics include common infections, pregnancy, postpartum immune changes, and the connection between genetics and triggers. They emphasize understanding the root causes of health issues and the emotional and psychological aspects of triggers. The conversation concludes with a recommendation to try fasting to uncover buried emotions and gain clarity on health issues.

    You'll Learn:

    Triggers can reactivate latent viruses and infections in the body, leading to a cascade of reactions and the reactivation of symptoms.

    Understanding the root cause of health issues is crucial for effective healing and management.

    Emotions play a significant role in triggering symptoms and can draw out latent infections.

    Pregnancy and postpartum can dysregulate the immune system, leading to the flare-up of autoimmune conditions and the reactivation of dormant infections.

    Genetics and environmental factors can influence the body's response to triggers and the manifestation of symptoms. Triggers are often connected to our belief systems and can be influenced by hidden infections and past traumas.

    Understanding the impact of relationships, environment, and experiences on our well-being is crucial for healing.

    Addressing the emotional and psychological aspects of triggers is essential for achieving overall health.

    Fasting can be a helpful tool for uncovering buried emotions and gaining clarity on the root causes of health issues.
