How Life Affects Your Health with Donna Nakazawa
Bookmark and Share
This show is about how the body works as a whole. Because how our body works, when a person seeks treatment, the body as a whole must be considered rather than one small fraction of it. Our guest is Donna Nakazawa. She is the author of Childhood Disrupted: How Your Biography Becomes Your Biology, and How You Can Heal. Her book talks about how traumatic events during childhood can have an affect on our health.
