The NDT (New Decision Therapy) is a loving process that helps an abused person to see the strength within and to leave an abusive relationship. The NDT teachers Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Lynn go into depth on this topic. What would be the mechanism that trauma appears from emotional abuse? And how is this trauma stored in the body? How emotional abuse affects people’s future relationships? What are signs that someone has been emotionally abused? Are there any long term effects of emotional or verbal abuse from parents? What does emotional abuse feel like in a relationship?
Interestingly enough people that go through abuse do not leave the abusive situation right away ,but people that do not carry trauma probably would the leave the relationship. People without trauma would have the clear-headed perception to see that it is not a productive situation to stay in. They would take themselves out the of the line of fire. If someone is standing there and pointing a gun at you the logical thing to do would be to get out of that situation such as a marriage or relationship.
In an abusive relationship (or when living with parents) or marriage, a person is already carrying trauma. They will stay in the abusive situation and blame themselves for the abuse. For example, they will think if only they work harder to please the abusive partner then it will get better. The abuser will squash them down all the time. It is a catch 22. The lower the abused person goes the harder it is for them to leave the abusive situation. This can last for many years.
Quite frankly Lynn has personal experience with being abused. She knows how traumatizing it can be, debilitating and paralysing. It is nothing, but freedom and liberation to find that empowerment inside yourself to leave a bad relationship or marriage. The thing she wants to bring forward is that the NDT is a very loving process. It helps you find a way to leave difficult situations without stepping out of them and carrying a lot of anger within you. You can leave the situation with your heart open rather than closed.
The NDT assists with healing emotional abuse coming from al types of origins or sources. You may be abused by parents/caretakers or in a relationship, but the NDT heals the trauma through forgiveness.
Within the holistic perspective is that when the emotions of a person are healed they will have physical and spiritual changes promoting overbreathing or hyperventilation. Dr. Artour Rakhimov teaches about the globally popular Buteyko method to slow down breathing back to medical norms and his own do-it-yourself device to increase body-oxygen levels. Additionally, important lifestyle points are taught to keep high oxygen levels within the body. For example, physical exercise, diet, proper sleep conditions and other points. When improving body-oxygen levels it helps you to be more resilient to stress. This helps to improve concentration and overall health.
