The Healthy Gut Podcast Ep.55
Surviving trauma to regain health
Traumatic events can be life-changing and everlasting. For many people, the trauma can stay with them for life, yet they often don’t get the support they need. Today, Rebecca Coomes shares her own personal experience with highly traumatic events; sexual abuse by her uncle, extreme bullying at school and the workplace and how a near-death diving accident was the tipping point for change. She shares how she lived in a constant state of fight or flight and the impact that had on her gut, plus how she manages her past traumas today.
In Today's Episode
In Episode 55 of The Healthy Gut podcast, we discuss:
✓ What trauma can look like
✓ How we know if we’re experiencing it
✓ Why long-term stressful situations can play havoc on our gut
✓ What strategies we can put in place to support ourselves

Thank you for all this fabulous work!
I have a question, excuse me, I can’t find the transcript of this podcast. I find the transcripts from episode 57 to 82. But there is nothing else before 57, is it normal ?
Access to the transcripts became available for members of The Healthy Gut podcast from Season 2. I did have Season 1 transcripts on my old website, but unfortunately that broke and I lost the content (soooo sad!).
Thank you for sharing this, I realised from listening to your podcast that I have been affected by things that have happened in my life as well. I guess I didn’t realise how big of an impact those things had on me. Different to your experiences but how I could relate to this was by how you reacted to it/how you tried to cope with it and how it made you feel about yourself – I had tried to deal with my problems in a similar way and felt a similar way about myself. So sorry you had to go through all this Rebecca but its great to see you are doing so much better now and its an inspiration to so many people.
Rebecca, you are such a beautiful woman inside and out and! Thank you for sharing such a personal and moving story. Hearing you be so candid was very inspiring to hear. I don’t know how you made it through all of this to be where you are today. You would never know all this happened to you by hearing your chipper voice in your podcasts and seeing your smile. You are such an inspiration and listening to this episode brought me to tears! You deserve nothing but the best in life!
Thanks so much for the lovely words Teena xx
