Kristin Rivas was newly married and only 21 when she started having non-neurological seizures. For months, she pursued a diagnosis as her symptoms worsened, but no doctor had an answer.
Rivas had reached her emotional limit; Having upwards of 9 seizures a day she had taken to wearing a helmet, using a wheelchair or cane and removed herself from college. It was then that she was finally diagnosed with traumatic grief.
Rivas tells Gabriel Spitzer about her road to recovery, how hypnotherapy saved her and why she decided to become apracticing hypnotherapist herself.
This talk was given November 9, 2013 in Seattle at TEDxRainier, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.
