Check It Out: How to Heal

How to Heal: A Practical Guide To Nine Natural Therapies You Can Use To Release Your Trauma by Jessi Beyer 

The National Council for Behavioral Health estimates that seven out of every ten people you know will experience a trauma during their lifetimes – perhaps even you. When that happens, though, what do you do?

For speaker and mental health advocate Jessi Beyer, it meant doing nothing and avoiding therapy like the plague. What she did not know, though, is that there were alternatives to talk therapy. You could spend time with horses, go on a walk through the woods, or dance your way through healing. If you are moving through your trauma healing journey and are looking for an alternative to talk therapy, then you have landed in the right place.

How To Heal details nine natural and integrative therapy methods that can be a powerful addition to your healing journey: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Craniosacral Therapy, Mindfulness and Meditation, Dance-Movement Therapy, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, Equine-Assisted Therapy, Canine-Assisted Therapy, Ecotherapy and Nature-Based Therapies, and Flower Essence Therapy.

Written by a fellow trauma survivor, How To Heal includes information beyond the therapies to help you understand what trauma is, how it affects your life, and how you can help someone who struggles with a past traumatic experience.

By taking home How To Heal, you help more than just you and your loved ones. 50% of the profits from all book sales will be donated to the Pararescue Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and preserves the pararescue community during and after their time in uniform.

How to Heal is helpful and accessible. As a trauma survivor I understand first hand just how daunting therapy can be when you don't know what to expect. I wish I had known then what I know now, and this book would have been a huge help in that respect. The internet is full of information, but it can be very overwhelming if you're just starting your journey. I highly recommend picking up a copy for you or someone you love who it could help.
