In this episode of HealthMade Radio, Dr. Michael Karlfeldt speaks with author and world leader in the field of Inherited Family Trauma, Mark Wolynn. 

Mark explains that the mysteries we live with, the unexplained fears, the anxieties we have, the depression we never get to the bottom of, chronic, persistent symptoms, and complex illness could all be linked to generational trauma.

In this episode, learn How the trauma doesn’t necessarily stop with the people who experienced it:

  • Learn how feelings and stress responses can be expressed in genes and can be passed on
  • Discover how to track down generational trauma
  • Listen to learn how significant life experiences can arm the ancestral alarm clock

Unconsciously, we relive our mother’s anxiety. We repeat our father’s disappointments. We replicate the failed relationships of our parents or grandparents.

Just as we inherit our eye color and blood type, we also inherit the residue from traumatic events that have taken place in our family. While our physical traits are easily discernible, this emotional legacy is often hidden from us. Anxiety, fear, financial worries, depression, illness, and unhappy relationships can all be forms of our unconscious inheritance. – Mark Wolynn
