Many people respond to trauma by repressing it, in an attempt not to notice or give a name to what has happened. The trauma that is pushed/moved aside is manifested through the development of a variety of physical symptoms such as: headaches/migraines, asthma attacks and a wide range of physical pains. Trauma can be represented in many ways, from childhood trauma to issues that have arisen in work. Such as during a war, in your work etc. Thankfully there are people to help, for example you may want to look at Operation Heal America.
The price of ignoring trauma or distorting the body's messages is the inability to identify what is really dangerous or harmful, as well as what is safe and nutritious. Self-regulation depends on being able to have a good relationship with your body. Without this you have to rely on external regulation - drugs, drugs, alcohol, compulsive pleasures of others, the need for constant approval and the like. Traumas can affect health in old age in many different ways. Increased mental stress can lead to decreased immune system function and flare-ups of symptoms that existed in the past. Another explanation for physical problems among trauma survivors is the occurrence of an “body memory” experience that causes emotional discomfort associated with a particular organ in the body, which may later manifest itself in physical pain.
