In this episode, Anissa Hernández, MD talks about her work with trauma patients who have been impacted by Puerto Rico's hurricane Maria and the subsequent severe earthquakes.
She shares her discovery how nature connection is helping her patients in trauma recovery and building hope and resilience, especially after ecological trauma. How cultivating a relationship with nature can support anyone to find a positive perspective on life and develop a renewed sense of self-love.
As a pioneer in her field, Dr. Hernandez is also observing the delicate balance between the need for psychiatric drugs and increased resilience through other wellness modalities such as Reiki, Aroma Therapy, Sound Therapy and Forest Bathing.
Bonus: At the end of the episode, Dr. Hernandez is offering an introductory experience of forest bathing with a spontaneous "Pleasures of Presence" invitation.
