We have all experienced some form of trauma in our lives. For some people, however, trauma can leave them in a high-alert state that can last for years or even a lifetime, significantly impacting the quality of their lives. Childhood abuse, being exposed to violence or losing a very significant person in our lives can leave us in a state of what Eden Energy Medicine would refer to as “Triple Warmer Overload”.
The Triple Warmer or Triple Burner, as it is sometimes referred to in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is the meridian that keeps us alive. It governs our “fight or flight” response and is highly tied into the more primitive part of our brain. When we feel threatened or are exposed to a traumatic event, the Triple Warmer goes into full force, attempting to protect us from the external threat in our environment. The trouble with this is that even after the event is over, the Triple Warmer continues to send signals to the amygdala and the mid-brain and we can become frozen in this state.
In recent years, energetic rebalancing methods such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and other techniques that address the Triple Warmer response, have been used to successfully treat soldiers suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as others who have suffered through severe trauma.
