Reclaiming your physical health is a large part of recovering from narcissistic abuse. After being with a narcissist, and being raised by them, we need to take care of our health dynamically like never before. We were taught from an early age to respond to other people’s needs and wants rather than listen to the needs of our own body. The physical body is a vehicle which can lead you towards achieving mental health and clarity.
Here is a short list of things that can aid in reclaiming your physical health while in recovery:
- Stress response can lead to autoimmune issues-cortisol management
- Microbiome-everything from what you eat, to your children, to your dogs, to your kitchen sink, etc
- Environmental toxins
- Bad habits/addictions
- Parasite cleanse
- Heavy metal detox
- Emotional detox
- Adrenal reset
- Liver support
Recovering and reclaiming your physical health is not limited to just these things, but these are some ideas on where to start.
