In Ancient times, people were trained to be in tune with their mind, body, and soul, and that gave them a stronger foundation to deal with threats as they arose.
Over the years, we’ve lost that mentality.
As our lives have become compartmentalized, our mind, body, and soul have become separate areas dealt with individually.
The problem with this is, we no longer know how to determine what is a threat and what isn’t.
As we’ve become more sensitized to external factors, we’ve gone into a near constant survival mode.
How can we become more in tune with ourselves, so we can stop giving so much of our energy to things that don’t need it?
Aside from impacting our quality of life, are there any health risks of staying in fight-or-flight mode?
In this episode, Founder and CEO of Wellsmart, Dr Amy Coleman explains the dangers of not taking care of our health holistically.
Nothing causes more destruction to the immune system than what comes from our inner battles.
The immune system follows the consciousness.

Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
- How striving for perfection hurts our immune systems
Perfection is a moving target, so it should never be our goal. When we set our sights on unrealistic expectations, we make way for unrest within our consciousness. This ultimately causes an inner battle that impacts our physical health.
- Why survival mode is more damaging than we realize
Our society has trained us to believe that stress is a motivator and being in survival mode brings great results, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. When we’re on high-alert for too long, our brainwaves collapse and we struggle to complete basic tasks.
- The impact trans-generational trauma has on our health
The experiences of our ancestors have a huge impact on our physiological health. They become memories within us, and impact various organs. There’s no way to remove them, but they shouldn’t be seen as a threat. We just need to digest and vibrate them out.
