Emotional trauma and our brain

Can emotional injuries cause physical damage to our brains?


According to Anthony William this indeed can happen! Emotional injuries from for example hardship, betrayal, broken trust or loss can cause damage and even scar tissue in the brain. 


Our brain contains an intricate network of neurons. Electricity flows through this neural network passing information throughout out nervous system. 


Because of that electricity there is also always a small amount of heat. Every thought, emotion and action will increase the strength of the electricity and cause the heat to rise. 


Emotions, especially difficult emotions create extra heat and depending on the health of the brain can even cause physical damage in the brain. 


Toxic heavy metals, alloys of metals, toxic chemicals, psychedelic drugs both natural, and artificial, adrenaline surges, viral waste and viruses all contribute to damaging and weakening the brain. Making it more prone to physical injury when it heats up due to intense emotions. 


How you cope with brain heat depends on what kind of reserves you have  in the brain: Are your neurotransmitter chemicals strong? Do you have good levels of melatonin? Enough glucose? Enough hydration? Enough oxygen and enough trace minerals? 


The cleaner the brain cell is, the greater the ability for that brain cell to stay alive under increasing heat. When a brain cell is dirty, filled with everyday toxins, toxic heavy metals and more the brain cells heat up more quickly and the heat takes longer to escape.


Another aspect of brain heat is that it diminishes beneficial brain chemicals. Some of these chemicals being used to cool the brain. 



Brain protective foods:  

Anthony gives us 5 categories of foods that support the brain: Fruits, leafy greens, herbs, wild foods and vegetables. These foods all fight disease, and support the growth of cells in the brain such as glial vessels, connective tissue and neurones. It is good to increase these foods as much as possible. 


Some important steps to take to protect the brain and cool an overheated brain:

  • Lower fat intake (This supports the absorption of nutrients, trace minerals and glucose. And also helps to cleanse out brain trouble makers). 
  • Stay hydrated with living water (clean water with a squeeze of lemon juice, fresh cucumber juice, fresh water melon etc etc)
  • Feed the brain trace minerals (from for example fresh celery juice, cucumber juice, coconut water, leafy greens).
  • Feed the brain healthy glucose (from for example fruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes etc.)


Cleanse the brain :


Specific cleansing tools that Anthony has shared with us: 


Avoid brain trouble makers: For example:

  • Vinegar
  • Caffeine
  • Alchohol
  • Perfumes (this includes in products used for cleaning and personal care)
  • Incense
  • If possible pharmaceuticals.  (There are situations where they are needed in which case focussing on the cleansing techniques will be very helpful, including a pharmaceutical exposure brain shot). 
  • There are many more which Anthony discusses in detail in his Brain Saver Companion Books. 


Anthony has shared a very simple “relaxing and rejuvenating the nervous system technique.” link  

Anthony describes it in detail in his book “Brain Saver Protocols and Recipes. 


Emergency Tools for when one has gone through strong emotions are the new brain shot therapies

There are many that can be helpful depending on the situation but this is a favourite of mine:


Trauma, shock and loss stabiliser:

  • 1/2 cup fresh or thawed frozen cherries
  • 1 cup tightly packed spinach
  • 1/2 apple


Run each ingredient through the juicer in the order listed from top to bottom.


We all experience many emotions daily, it is part of being human. Knowing how to protect and heal the brain when we experience emotional trauma can be very helpful! I hope you enjoyed this post!
