Nutrition for Post-Traumatic Growth

I’ve been researching nutrition to support the process of post-traumatic growth. A few thoughts on this are:

  1. Reduce inflammation: Inflammation puts the body into a sympathetic, or “fight vs. flight” state. Each person has different foods that might inflame their digestive tract. If you have heartburn, you have inflammation.
  2. Take care of the basics. Breathe. Hydrate with filtered water. Go to the bathroom every day.
  3. Feed your vagus nerve. Eat a good amount of foods with choline.
  4. Get minerals and electrolytes via food, including magnesium.
