Dearest Dr Pamela Nathan rescued me, with her ubiquitous love and genuine concern for mankind, by introducing me to her Stress Reduction Program. She is a dear, ‘old spiritual soul’ friend! In February, I contacted her and expressed that I had found myself suffering from PTSD as a result of an 11 year, verbally and emotionally abusive relationship.
I did not know I was experiencing the effects of “trauma” with the destruction it brings. I was blind sided and at a lowest of lows! My zest for life was gone, my self esteem felt stripped. I was living in a dark world of fear. This was the extreme opposite from my born blithe spirit and spontaneous discovering soul! I had become a hermit, afraid to leave the house for years. Sinking in quick sand, the “tapes” of abuse would play over and over in my mind consistently through the years. This mental torture pushed me to a place of not wanting to be alive anymore.
After practicing the Stress Reduction Program techniques daily for over a week, I felt a release from the consuming chronic pain! An absolute miracle! There was a strong, positive huge lift in my mind, body and spirit. I was experiencing freedom for the first time in years! The haunting replays of abusive circumstances in my thoughts had diminished!! REALLY! With each passing day of meditation, yoga poses, cognitive reframing, guided imagery etc., my being felt once again renewed!
Restoration of sanity — ha! I began sleeping again and now have less fear. I am more relaxed, productive, mentally alert/sharp, with a keener memory and easier decision making!! Life seems brighter, literally!
As logistics, finances and health issues are a serious reality, I am still living in this unhealthy environment. Now, I have a refuge and solace with the SHC techniques! When anxiety or depression show up, I merely stop what I am doing, begin 4-7-8, alternate nostril and other breathing techniques, do energizing yoga poses, meditate etc. Bingo, I am back to center, refreshed and new! I have a daily morning routine using the Stress Reduction Program management tools such as imagery, focus solutions, colors for relaxation etc. You know, I switch it up and feel a new perspective!
Because of Dr Pam’s astounding program, other natural alternative healing doors have opened for me that has further augmented my trauma healing! A whole new world!
Oh yes….I continue healing! Now, months later, I have moved closer to my goal of living back in freedom and happiness. Dr Pamela Nathan and her program are truly the only reason I have been able to accomplish this success!
This has been a most profound re-birthing for me, embellished with the blessing of empowerment!
Eliciting the myriad of healing techniques changed my life, forever! I now will always be able to enjoy the freedom from any of life’s stressors. Pamela Nathan, gave of herself to me! She gave me hope where I had none with zero prospects for release from living as a prisoner! I now experience the vision of being happy, joyous and free again! Dr Pamela Nathan, literally, saved my life!!! She is the most uniquely multi-faceted, healing human being! There is not another to be found like her, anywhere! How blessed that I have her to know and love, and for the ultimate love she has given me.
