How Trauma Causes Disease
Did you know that trauma, heightened emotional events, and unprocessed emotions can make you sick and even get in the way of you being able to heal from any illness or disease? Trauma symptoms result from an undesired physical response, belief, thought, or emotion in the mind/body when you perceive an event as dangerous, frightening, harmful, or life-threatening in any way. The induced trauma literally gets stuck in your cells, tissues, and organs, causing dysfunction and ultimately disease and illness.
Trauma isn’t the event itself but rather our interpretation or perception of the event and the story we create around it. Our interpretation or perception of the event that we believe to be dangerous, frightening, harmful, or life-threatening causes changes in our brain and body neurology and our biology that is dysfunctional and sometimes even painful. The subsequent dysfunction of our biological and neurological systems is what happens as a result of trauma.
It is well established across all medical disciplines — whether traditional medical or holistic — that severe trauma increases the risk of severe health conditions and disease in children and adults.
Is Our Drinking Water Contaminated?
The National Resource Defense Counsel (NRDC) recently reported that 27 million people, or one in every 12 Americans, are unknowingly exposed to drinking water systems with health-based violations. These violations are alarming and contributing to our major health crisis in the United States. The following health-based violations of our Federal Drinking Water rules set by the EPA that have been found, in order from greatest to least, were caused by: A family of chemicals called disinfection byproducts – KNOWN TO CAUSE CANCER, the failure to properly treat surface and groundwater to remove dangerous pathogens such as coliform bacteria, evidence that disease-causing organisms (pathogens) are in the water system, nitrates and nitrites that are also cancer causing and can cause “blue baby syndrome”, as well as lead and copper.
Tap water is supposed to be considered safe if it comes from a public water system in the United States, such as one run and maintained by a municipality. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the Federally funded organization that sets enforceable health standards regarding the contaminants in drinking water and monitors all public water systems.
In fact, in the United States, nearly one-in-four households risk having unsafe tap water to drink or their local municipal water systems have not been properly monitored for contaminants by federal law.
Stepping into 2022: Intention and Keystone Habits
Welcome to 2022, a new year full of possibilities, experiences, and connections. This article discusses methods for helping us move into a life that feels more supportive and aligned with how we want to live and show up. Of course, the answers are always inside of you but it can be helpful to have a qualified caring coach to empower you through information, strategies, and conscious listening. I hope you enjoy these strategies that have been life changing for so many of our clients.
Finding Your Word for 2022:
For many years, I have set intentions versus goals to start each new calendar year. I find that intention gives me the space to explore how I want to feel daily. Often people set goals such as losing a certain amount of weight by a certain date and begin the new year with a motivated mindset. Motivation is a beautiful quality to drive changes that you want to see in your wellness. For many of us, motivation can fade when we don’t meet the expectations that we set for ourselves and old patterning of poor self-care sets right back in.
When we tap into our heart space and lead from intention, we give ourselves permission to expand our capacity for wellness on a multidimensional level. The human experience is a multidimensional one, meaning there are multiple layers that make up our health. These are:
We also want to think of our health from a perspective of how our relationships and finances are functioning.
Watch Suzanne share her life changing journey to healing with Modern Holistic Health
Having survived an auto accident in 2019, Suzanne has been dealing with the long-lasting effects of a traumatic brain injury. With Modern Holistic Health, she has found the opportunity to take responsibility for her health back in her own hands, and write her own health guarantee.
“Don’t give up. There is a solution if you’re willing to do the work.”
Root Cause Solutions for Mental Health Podcast
A 2010 study published in PLOS One found that 5 of the 10 most violence-inducing drugs were antidepressants. Alongside antidepressants, 6 sedatives/hypnotics and 3 medications for attentional issues were also associated with increased violence. And while pharmaceutical therapies can work for certain individuals, they clearly cause (sometimes scary) side effects, do not work for everyone, and most importantly, do not address the root cause.
Tune in as Dr. V discusses the true causes of mental health issues, the limitations of conventional therapies, and holistic strategies for better mental health.
How Eating Paleo Inspired the Creation of Paleovalley
Despite a career as a professional dancer and celebrity fitness trainer, Autumn Fladmo Smith’s health was in shambles. In 2011, she and her husband stumbled upon the paleo diet and within a month of beginning it, her health was completely transformed. Autumn then made it her mission to share the information she had learned with as many people as possible: she co-founded Paleovalley, an organic whole-food supplement and paleo snack food company that prioritizes nutrient density and food quality..
Dr. V’s masterclasses provided Debbie with the answer to healing her brain injury
I decided to join Modern Holistic Health because of concerns regarding my long-term brain health. After several serious head injuries, I was left with symptoms of post-concussion, depression and anxiety. Once I developed a tremor and was told I had to wait and see if it was an indicator for something more serious, I knew I had to look for another way. I watched several of Dr. V’s Mental Health, Leaky Brain and Gut Health masterclasses and summits as well as Tribe Talks and found them to be so positive and hopeful that I knew I had found my answer.
Dr. V and her entire team at MHH are kind, caring and compassionate. They are incredibly knowledgeable and educated in their approach to healing and I have always felt confident that I was getting the best care.
Not only are they teaching me how to address and reverse my brain symptoms, but also my mold, glyphosate, hormonal and nutritional imbalances and past traumas.
I would never have been able to heal without addressing all of these issues. I can never express how truly grateful I am to Dr. V and everyone at Modern Holistic Health. I finally feel like I am in control of my future health. Thank you!

Plagued by decades of health issues, Gale finds answers and confidence in weekly group classes
So grateful for Dr. V and the Modern Holistic Health team, after being plagued with health issues for decades. After seeing many traditional doctors and even holistic doctors I just wasn’t getting answers to what was causing symptoms like anxiety, IBS, thyroid disease, achy joints, food sensitivities and many more making me sick. They were treating my symptoms but not getting to the root cause.
I had seen Dr V on many health podcasts and after listening to her I just thought, I really think she could help me. Dr V. and the team, they start with lab testing and know right away what they’re dealing with. I had answers fairly quickly. I’m halfway through the program. I’m definitely doing better, it took me decades to get here so I know It’s going to take time to heal completely. I am so confident in the process and I’m learning so much from the weekly group classes.
So hopeful for the Future! I can’t thank you all enough.
Give yourself the opportunity of knowing all perspectives instead of just one
Being able to see multiple perspectives outside of whatever our belief systems may be, has fostered the advancement of science and technology throughout the history of mankind. Unfortunately over the last 18 months, we have seen a colossal distortion of how useful and important other perspectives can be. Never in my life have I witnessed such an inability for people to be open to a perspective that is not in line with their religious, political, or other agendas. In fact, people are refusing to see truths that are right in front of them.
The truth is, without the ability to see different perspectives, we wouldn’t have had all the amazing advancements we’ve had that have brought us to where we are now. A great example of how useful different perspectives have been in our human evolution is in the story of Louis Pasteur. If not for Louis and his ability to be open to new possibilities, we would still be stuck in the throes of the 1800’s where people would still be dying needlessly all because they refused to believe Louis Pasteur when he proposed there were invisible bugs called ‘germs’ that were killing people. In fact, Louis Pasteur was severely criticized and ridiculed for proposing his germ theory because people just didn’t want to believe him. Fortunately, after some time, Louis was able to prove his theory and as a result millions of lives have been saved around the world over the last 160 years!
All of this to divert to the hot topic of va-c-inations. Yes, let’s talk about it. We don’t have to argue, instead we can educate and simply give different perspectives and after hearing other perspectives we can appreciate them or not, and move on. But without the ability to see other perspectives – on any topic – we are all losing.
Vac-c-inations have an amazing history in that what started out as an accidental discovery that was developed to save lives and eradicate deaths from various ‘diseases’, has turned into a multi billion dollar industry where what is being touted as an immune protective procedure has actually led to exponential increases in autoimmune disease and autism that started in the 70’s and is now at the highest rates ever. We have more children suffering from autoimmune diseases and autism than we have ever seen in history, and over the last 18 months a new medical procedure being touted as a va¢¢ine is not only miraculously available after no human studies to ensure its safely, its being called a va¢¢ine when it is actually not a va¢¢ine at all. If you are not aware of this gene altering therapy (that is being called a va¢¢ine), and the ingredients that are in it – if you are even remotely interested in what is being forced into people’s bodies (without informed consent – which is legally supposed to be given to everyone and anyone asking for the vac-cine), then this docu-series is one you will want to see. When high ranking officials are leaving the pharmaceutical companies and crying foul play, when physicians, doctors, and scientists around the world who have always been pro va¢¢ine are now yelling foul play even at the risk of persecution (like Louis Pasteur), doesn’t that warrant that we at least listen to what they have to say?
My dear friend, Jonathan Otto, an investigative journalist, devout Christian, and loving father of two beautiful boys, has interviewed many experts who are speaking their truth and honoring their oath to ‘do no harm’. I invite you to add this to your evening TV watching so you can have the opportunity to hear what many have to say about the current vac-c-ine.
Give yourself the opportunity of knowing all perspectives instead of just one.
The Most Important Insider Secrets (literally)
Now, there’s a phrase that often doesn’t deliver on its promise. As a woman in her 50’s now with two grandchildren, well, I’ve been around the block a few times lol.
However, if you’re determined to heal your body and mind, keep your body healthy and resilient, keep your mind thinking clearly, and keep your body moving freely; if you want to regain and maintain feeling energetic and productive for years to come… then let me share with you some of the things I’ve done and still do that has reversed AND slowed my aging process down.
This is me with my beautiful (and super silly) 8 year old granddaughter, and this photo was taken last month. One of my long time friends, Jane, who recently moved down to Costa Rica, mentioned on our social media how at first she didn’t even recognize this was me at first! You see, I have been reverse aging for the last 5 years!
Some of you may be wondering if I use Botox for wrinkles – the answer is NO. Some think I perhaps stay out of the sun. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I LOVE the sun and have spent most of my life outdoors WITHOUT sunscreen (unless I am out in the direct sun to the point I feel I am starting to burn. Then I will finally apply sunscreen so that I can extend my time in the sun).
So how then have I managed to look the way I do?! It’s simple. I cleaned up my body, my mind, AND my spirit using MANY of the secrets you will learn in this Healthy Aging and Longevity Summit. It took a while. It certainly wasn’t a 90 day process for me, it was more like almost 10 years of work but only because I didn’t have the knowledge provided here in the summit so I could understand all the facets of healing, health, and vitality. If I had to do it all again with the knowledge I now have, it would go so much faster!
These days my focus is primarily on optimization, biohacking, and building resilience so that I can defy what most of us think of as old. And you know what?! It’s working for me and it can work for you, too.
I’ve got something I am sure you will be interested in, if you are interested in anti-aging and longevity like I am. My good friend, Brian Vaszily, who’s been a widely renowned and trusted natural health advocate and researcher for over 20 years has put together, for your viewing pleasure, top speakers from around the globe who like me, are focused on their longevity, vitality, and slowing the aging process down!
Brian is gathering 21 of the world’s leading healthy aging and longevity doctors and researchers, each from different specialty areas.
And he’s doing something quite different – and genuinely life-changing.
You see, he’s about to have them each reveal the top health secrets from their specific areas of expertise that are so powerful – that have been proven so effective – that they make certain to personally take those steps themselves.
This summit will be available for viewing and it’s called The Ultimate Healthy Aging and Longevity Summit.
And YES, for the first time, these world-renowned experts will open their private doors to reveal the most important steps of all that they personally take to live long and live well.
Don’t miss this unique and GENUINELY life-changing online event to start your New Year right.

These top picks will start your New Year off right
Each month, my coaching team and I want to share with you one or more products we love and trust – because of the safety and ‘clean’ ingredients they have, how well they work, and because it supports small business… and we want to make it easy for you to find great products and support the amazing people and families who are behind them.
It’s so easy to buy on Amazon, yes I get that, but did you know that Amazon takes away everything that makes a small business amazing and sustainable? And not only that, they are now controlling what you have the ability to purchase, and what the pricing is, leaving small businesses with their hands tied behind their back, at the mercy of Amazon.
If YOU find a great product that you want to share with us, let us know so that we can look into it and share it with our tribe – YOUR tribe!
As we move into the new year and kick of new healthy habits, I am excited to share two of my favorite brands and a great book with you. Enjoy!
Purity Woods: One of Dr V’s Personal Favorite Skincare lines!
If you’ve been trying those expensive creams at the department store thinking they must be better because of the price, let me tell you that the majority of those are FILLED with TOXINS which will actually age you faster. The truth is that clean and natural products really are better for your skin and they really DO work! That is, if you are also taking care of your body on the inside too.
I use and really enjoy the Purity Woods line of skincare including their Dream Cream. This cream includes 3 of nature’s top collagen-boosting vitamin C ingredients…
Nature’s premier ingredient against sun damage…
AND the superstar among the stars – 3 different types of the surprising extract from certain much-loved trees that new research shows may provide “fountain-of-youth-like effects.”
The Age-Defying Dream Cream is perfect for all skin types, even highly sensitive skin… it won’t clog your pores… and it’s outstanding on your face, neck, hands, arms, and anywhere you want fast and long-lasting results.
A key to their guiding principles for Purity Woods was making sure that this cream was, indeed, USDA Certified Organic.
PLEASE NOTE, though: Because of the meticulous production process to create this highly effective, USDA Certified Organic Age-Defying Dream Cream, it is created in small batches, so Purity Woods’ inventory truly is limited. I love supporting small businesses and this one is one of my favorites to support!
Start this new year by showing your body and mind radical self love! Give your body (and your skin) products they will thrive with. I encourage you to try one of my favorite products!
