    435: Developmental Trauma, Autoimmune + Integrative Nutrition with Dr. Leslie Korn

    435: Developmental Trauma, Autoimmune + Integrative Nutrition with Dr. Leslie Korn

    Welcome back to Therapy Chat! In the last of the interviews from Psychotherapy Networker Symposium in March 2024, I was fortunate to have a deep conversation with my friend and colleague Dr. Leslie Korn. Leslie has been a guest on Therapy Chat previously and I've learned so much from her about integrative nutrition and trauma.
    This time we talked about the intersection between childhood trauma, "dis-ease," "dis-orders," autoimmune responses, integrative nutrition and overall health and wellbeing. I talked about my own journey with a health crisis between 2015 and 2019 and what I've learned since then. We touched on attachment, developmental trauma, hormones, autoimmune responses, integrative nutrition and mental health, among many other things, in this fascinating conversation!
    Work with Leslie via her website here.

Insightful

I don't enjoy the ads and long introductions, but I like the content. I just finished listening to an audiobook of one of the guests, Lindsay Gibson. It was great. Thanks Ms. Regan.

Eye Opening

One of the very first episodes I listened to was in early 2022 and it spoke immensely to me. This podcast gave me language at a time where I was searching for answers. It helped me put my thoughts into words. Super thankful I randomly stumbled upon this podcast. It was definitely a God send.

stackedtight ,

Excellent content

Invaluable information and guests for trauma clinicians and laypeople. But the rambling and redundant introductions are the worst. Add to that ads that are spliced in without warning and the podcast loses me a bit making it a challenge to follow as optimally.
