Studies indicate that trauma experienced by our parents and earlier generations can shape our health, including a brand new one showing how the nervous system can transmit information across generations.

How We Can Inherit Emotions from Earlier Generations
Over almost three decades, Dr. Brad has worked help people overcome effects of emotional trauma. His best-book “The Emotion Code” sold more than 175,000 copies and launched a holistic healing revolution worldwide, with almost 5,000 practitioners around the globe trained and certified in the energy healing techniques he teaches.
St. Martins Press just released a revised and expanded edition of “The Emotion Code” in which Dr. Brad devotes a new chapter to how “trapped emotions” – unresolved negative feelings from difficult and traumatic life experiences – can be inherited. Science is providing tantalizing clues about how emotionally charged memories may be passed from generation to generation, including:
- A UCLA study finds that severe childhood trauma and stresses early in parents' lives are linked to higher rates of behavioral health problems in their own children.
- Researchers at Emory discovered mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences to subsequent generations through chemical changes that occur in DNA, and may help to explain why people suffer from seemingly irrational phobias.
- Another study looked at sons of Union Army Civil War soldiers who endured grueling conditions as prisoners of war, and found they were likely to die younger than the sons of soldiers who were not prisoners. Both groups were born after the war, indicating the stresses of war were being passed down between generations.
Dr. Brad has worked with many people suffering physical, emotional and mental distress related to emotions passed down from parents, grandparents and previous generations. Some topics he can discuss include:
- Nature vs. Nurture vs. Inherited Emotions – “If you have a brother or sister, it is likely that they share some of the same inherited emotions that you received from your mother or father. As with the distribution of genetic material within a family, not all siblings receive the same set of inherited emotions from both parents. This may be one reason why a small child has severe tantrums while his twin brother has always been a peaceful and easy child to raise.”
- Energy, Physics and Inherited Emotions – “A fascinating principle in Quantum Physics is that one energy may exist simultaneously in an infinite number of places at the same time. This is what can happen when a trapped emotion is passed from one generation to another.”
- Positive Effects of Releasing Inherited Emotions – “At this stage of our understanding, we may not be able to do a lot to change our actual DNA, but releasing trapped emotions can help us to make changes on an energetic level that can make huge improvements in how we feel emotionally and physically."
“If you have children, they have probably inherited at least one trapped emotion from you, just as you probably inherited some emotional baggage from your parents and grandparents,” Dr. Brad says. “When we find and release an inherited emotion, we are actually identifying an emotional vibration shared by two or more people, sometimes many.”
Dr. Brad can share his process for uncovering and releasing emotions from the past.
