When a child shuts down his painful emotional side, he also loses the ability to express his joyous side. Emotions are a whole. With anger comes the ability to express delight; with sadness comes the ability to express lightheartedness. This is the breadth of emotion that allows an adult to experience intimacy with a spouse, with God, and with his children.”

The Power of Smell to Heal Trauma

Odors take a direct route to the limbic system, including the amygdala and the hippocampus, the regions related to emotion and memory.

In this powerful episode, “The Power of Smell to Heal Trauma,” I get to introduce you to one of my favorite clinical psychologists and friend, Dr. Ben Perkus.

In January 2019, I was introduced to him through a vivacious friend and life hasn’t been the same since. There are those times in our lives when a day changes the trajectory of one’s course.

She said to me, “You have to know about AFT.”

I said, “AF-what?”

She then shared everything she knew about Aroma Freedom Technique + how it had helped her resolve some deeply rooted, trauma-related issues in her life.

Two days later, I had signed up for the practitioner training and became certified in AFT six months later.

It changed my life.

It changed my practice.

It changed me.

Today, I pray it brings a beautiful change into your life. Or at least the beginning of one.
