Today marks the start of Mental Health Week in Canada and this is a special bonus episode.
We all experience stress, some of us more than others. Sometimes, stress can make us tired and irritated. Often, it shows up in the form of physical or mental health issues. Trying to eliminate stress seems to be a futile adventure and many of us just give up and try to deal with it the best we can.
What if you could counteract and lower the amount of daily and lifetime stress you experience? What if there was a way to heal your pains and put yourself back into balance? To go after the life you have always dreamed of?
That’s exactly what today’s guest discovered when he suffered the effects of stored stress loads and trauma that derailed his dreams. When conventional systems were unable to help him, he began his own journey of finding deep and permanent healing.
At the age of 22, Christopher Lee Maher was a Navy SEAL, in his prime with a sleek 1.8% body fat and pound for pound, he was one of the fittest people on the planet. He was also completely unaware of the full impact that stress would eventually have on his physical, mental, energetic, and emotional wellbeing.
He trained all day long, at a level on par with professional athletes. In fact, after the SEALs, he began focusing on his dream of making it to the US Olympic trials, in track and field. A lack of awareness of the impact of high stored stress loads kept him from ever manifesting his dream.
Piled-up stress causes severe and traumatic damage over time—what Christopher calls Strauma, a combination of stress plus time that transforms into trauma.
Through intense pain, Christopher devoted all of his energy, time, and resources seeking out answers that would alleviate his discomfort. Eventually finding relief, Christopher applied the learned techniques and worked on himself 5 to 6 hours every day for 7 years. He put every biological system that was out of balance back in balance.
Christopher went on to study at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and Yo San University where he learned Traditional Chinese Medical Practices and an equal amount of Western science and pathology. He has spent the last decade studying at The Universal Healing Tao System and is a Master student of Grand Master Mantak Chia at the Universal Tao Master School in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He is currently pursuing his masters and doctoral degrees in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
His knowledge and experience led him to develop a comprehensive system of total physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing and integration: the True Body Intelligence technology. Christopher’s practice is located in Los Angeles, CA. He is an author, inventor, entrepreneur, speaker, coach, and innovator in the fields of health, wellness, and longevity.
