Trauma and Addiction with Dr. Aimie Apigian
October 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Carmen will be joined by Dr. Aimie Apigian for a conversation about:
- Addiction medicine
- Vagus nerve
- Nervous system regulation with substances and chemical or behavioral addictions
Dr. Aimie studied at Loma Linda University and did 4 years in General Surgery training at Oregon State Health Sciences University in Portland, OR. Her life was dramatically affected by Miguel, a 4 year old boy she adopted from the foster care system during medical school, who had experienced neglect, abuse, and instability since he was born. He ultimately challenged every aspect of her way of thinking, her medical training, and even her spiritual beliefs. The result has been an experiential learning of trauma, neurobiology, attachment disorders, stress and inflammatory illnesses, and addictions. The result has also been what she calls her personal quest to find the underlying cause and heal herself from fatigue, depression, and high levels of autoimmune antibodies that the specialists had no answers for except an anti-depressant to manage symptoms.
