Recovery from Rape or Sexual Abuse with NDT: Feel Safe, Strong, and Happy – Interview with Lynn Himmelman, NDT Master Trainer


The NDT (New Decision Therapy) helps people that experienced rape or sexual abuse to trust in life and feel safe again instead of emotions of anger, guilt and regret. In this video, NDT teacher’s Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Lynn discuss this topic in detail. Lynn had a lot of students with sexual abuse. What is common for these type of students? The NDT is really successful for people who went through sexual abuse. Which emotions and behavior people experience or go through after sexual abuse as victims?

Lynn worked with people that have gone through very serious sexual abuse cases. Sometimes there was a gang rape and other horrible things have happened to people. They have been unable to get back on board with their life. This is where they would be able to feel safe, happy and strong. I love Kandis Blakely (the creator of the NDT) for having created this process because it gives a way to get inside a person. To actually bring finality to the trauma. And to really end it once and for all. The person will be able to trust in life and understand that there are multiple opportunities to get into life and feel safe rather than feeling angry, guilty or regretful.

The NDT helps with healing emotional abuse. In the holistic perspective, emotions are connected to our physical and spiritual health. When a person has their emotions healed they will have physical and spiritual improvements as well. Dr. Artour Rakhimov is an NDT teacher and breathing retraining teacher. He teaches about the famous worldwide Buteyko method and his own do-it-yourself device to increase body-oxygen levels.

The Buteyko method has grown incredibly popular in Australia, Russia and various other countries. Many serious health conditions are treated with it. These include asthma, bronchitis, liver-cirrhosis, HIV-AIDS, cancer, diabetes and many others. There are numerous medical studies on Dr. Artour’s website Also, there are many more discussions involving a variety of topics on his YouTube channel.

Along with breathing retraining, Dr. Artour Rakhimov teaches important lifestyle points to keep high oxygen levels within the body. For example, diet, physical exercise, proper sleep conditions, grounding and other points. When increasing body-oxygen levels or the control pause, it assists you to be more resilient to stress. Also, concentration, focus and clarity are improved. Having higher body-oxygen levels helps to improve sleep quality and shorten its duration. Physical exercise becomes easier to perform and it becomes desirable to be active. This, in turn, increases body-oxygen levels. Digestion is improved and less food is required to feel full. Also, raw foods become desirable. Posture becomes improved and as well helps to improve CP. These changes occur naturally with having a higher body-oxygen level. All these lifestyle changes assist faster recovery from emotional traumas and effects of sexual abuse as well.

Additionally, normal breathing makes prevention of sexual abuse more natural and easier. Hyperventilating people have overexcited states of their minds that fuels their neurons to produce sexual fantasies. This is a known effect caused by hypocapnia (or low CO2 levels) in the brain cells. From the same perspective, overbreathing prolongs the state of victimhood after sexual abuse and strengthens negative emotions related to feeling guilt and regret or anger in relation to perpetrators.
