Healing Chronic Illness by Healing Childhood Trauma
With Veronique Mead
Having faced her fair share of illnesses as an adult, Veronique began to search for answers to some of the questions she had about the connection between trauma and chronic illness. Her curiosity and inquiring spirit led her to pivot her career from being a family physician to Somatic Therapist, and today she is on the forefront of the conversations around the ACE’s Study (Adverse Childhood Experiences). Her website hosts a generous amount of information that has been a resource I have personally used, as well as shared with others. What an incredible opportunity to ask her some of the questions that have been on my mind!
