Chris Ross® joins Dr. Ruth Allan on the 47th Episode of Brain Health: Unchaining Your Pain and 7th Episode in series 3

Please note that during this podcast we discuss the topic of the trauma and grief of losing a loved one

Chris Ross is Founder of Winject Studios, seeking to empower content creators with an all-in-one platform to engage with their listeners and create content in a way never done before. Chris is also host of the show 'The Win-Win Effect' and an awesome dad

In this Episode, Dr Ruth and Chris discuss the sensitive topic of how to manage your way through the trauma and grief of losing something or someone. For Dr Ruth this was witnessing the death of her father and for Chris losing his older sister

Dr Ruth and Chris take you on their journey, the trauma they experienced and how they dealt with and navigated their way through the grief that followed

Dr Ruth talks about the different types of loss we can experience and why it can sometimes take us by surprise

This is a difficult conversation for both Chris and Dr Ruth, yet they hope in sharing their story and their journey that it offers hope, knowing that you are not alone and that others have been on a similar journey before
