In this episode Dr. Jannine Krause interviews Veronique Mead – a former family physician and assistant professor turned trauma therapist who now integrates the research showing how adverse life events effect risk for chronic illness: why it’s not psychological – and what you can do about it. Veronique never realized that she’d experienced adversity until she left medical practice, retrained as a trauma therapist and discovered how adverse life experiences affect health. Learn the impact adverse life experiences have on your genes, the nervous system, the cell danger response & more.
