Our bodies hold our personal mythologies

I made this meme photo today for Facebook. I figured I’d share it here with some links as well.

Our bodies, in perfect reflection of our psyches, hold our personal mythologies. In this way we are all unique. This is what western medicine does not get. Clinical trials can never capture this.

This is, in large part, what Bessel van der Kolk is getting at in his book as well. The Body Keeps the Score
