Scroll down for the YouTube video (and we do recommend reading the mini-article here for context).

I recently listened to a brilliant interview of Anthony Kiedis, lead vocalist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He said something that inspired me to write this week’s email: 

“The most powerful thing that you could ever write is something that is honest.”  

So, here it goes. 

If you’re reading this, it is possible you’re dealing with a chronic health condition such as chronic pain, autoimmune issues, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, severe PMS, CFS, IBS, or “mysterious” symptoms with no official diagnoses…the list goes on. 

But do you know WHY?

The answer is something I believe every human being deserves to hear.

Because without this information, it’s very difficult (if not impossible) to heal. 

>> We now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the more adverse experiences a person experiences in their childhood, the more likely they are to suffer from a chronic illness (mental, physical, or emotional) later in life. <<

This is not yet common knowledge. 

And it explains why our traditional “health” care system is failing so many people…and why many healing modalities (even the alternative ones!) are missing the mark. 

There is good news. 

And it’s my life’s work to ensure that more people hear it. 

There is a way to heal these chronic conditions and troubles that stem from early trauma and adversity. This is not just about managing them, it is about getting to the root cause so that deep healing that is long lasting can take shape. That’s what we’ll cover in this week’s video share—the undeniable link between early childhood stress and chronic illness and the essential ingredients you need for deep healing.
