Energy, Overwhelm & Freeze Module

Energy. Changes. Everything.


Trauma is an energy problem. By bringing energy into the system, you increase the body's capacity for life, stress, and resilience — all the way down to the cellular level. You can help prevent the body from going into overwhelm and freeze.

Overwhelm happens on a cellular level. 


Why does the cell decide to give up and shut down?

Because it runs out of energy.


“It wasn’t until I began to study with Dr. Aimie Apigian that I saw monumental changes… I’ve had more contact from old and new clients. They really want to learn the piece that I offer."

- Deborah Burnham, PT


physical movement as children, and epigenetics all shape how the nervous system develops. 

This early wiring becomes the foundation with which we see not only ourselves, but also the world.

A Step Towards Certification

Completing this module is a step towards becoming certified as a Biology of Trauma™ Provider.

 Dive Deep Into Energy, Overwhelm & Freeze

and the Connection to the Biology of Trauma™!

In This Module We Will Cover:


Cellular Overwhelm

 While people experience overwhelm on an emotional level, in this chapter we look at overwhelm that happens on the cellular level. By understanding the process by which an individual cell gets overwhelmed, we have knowledge and tools to address overwhelm on a systems level.


Energy, Nutrients and Mitochondria

When a system has the support and nutrients it needs, it can face any stress. In this chapter, we look at the specific nutrients that get depleted with chronic stress and overwhelm as well as the nutrient imbalances that will lead to stress and overwhelm.


Energy, Toxins and Infections

Toxins and infections can play a major role in cellular overwhelm. They can both drain energy and compromise its production in the mitochondria. In this chapter, we understand the mechanisms, identify the various toxins and infections that play a role, and the leverage points we have to help address these.


Energy and Lab Testing

For a person struggling with overwhelm and freeze response, are labs important? Which labs are important? How do you read those labs through the lens of stress and trauma? In this chapter, we review the specific labs that are helpful for identifying the biology leverage points and healing opportunities for energy, overwhelm and freeze.


Trauma as an Energy Problem

When a system has enough energy, It will experience stress, but not overwhelm. In this chapter, we review the instinctual trauma response and why people get stuck in the survival patterns rather than being able to complete the cycle that it is designed to do.


Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia as Trauma Freeze Response

Energy and pain are features of the chronic freeze, and how do we effectively address these conditions through the lens of trauma. This chapter brings everything together from this module with real life cases and how to integrate the biology and trauma work in a safe way.

Special Guest Speaker : Evan H. Hirsch, MD

Topic: Fix Your Fatigue

Dr. Evan Hirsch is the #1 best selling author of Fix Your Fatigue: The 4 step process to resolving fatigue, achieving abundant energy and reclaiming your life!

Who Is This Course NOT For?

- If you are not able to keep up with reading, lectures and need 1:1 support.  You need to be able to dedicate  4-6 hours a week to go through all of the course material and be ready for the exams during the 4th week.

-If you are a provider that believes you already have  all the answers. This course is to learn about a piece of the Biology Of Trauma.  

- If you are here to promote yourself rather than learn from others. This program strictly prohibits self-promotion.

-If you take things personally.  You will likely experience this course as a source of stress for you and additional support outside of class is not something that is available at this time.
