Brain Hack 9 – What causes triggers anyway?

by Linda Forrest

What causes triggers anyway? Put simply, sensory information – sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell – combines with memories to create chemical reactions in our brain. To have a full understanding of this concept, we cannot think of memories as videos from our past. While they can seem like videos when we access them, memories are actually individually stored data of all our experiences. The videos we imagine to be memory are instances of combined data presented in a way we can comprehend.

At the age of 23, Linda Forrest decided to refuse the definition of incurable when she was diagnosed and medicated for severe PTSD and addiction. On that day, she began a study that would eventually result in her discovery of a cure.

Through diverse research combining the sciences of psychology, pharmacology, neurology, and education, she assembled a puzzle that has not just cured the condition but has also helped hundreds of others to finally discover what it means to live a life free of suffering.

As an author, speaker, muse and mentor, she continually calls into question what it means to be human and offers clear explanations of what becomes possible when we finally eliminate fight or flight triggers.
