Modern Psychology Sends the Study of Trauma Where it Belongs – the Realm of Integrative Whole Body Health.

Childhood neglect… abusive relationships… war… societal violence… transgenerational epigenetics…developmental neglect… Big T and little t…

True healing happens when we learn to release the past and find hope again.

New techniques and therapies have totally changed the game.The most radical kindness you can show yourself is deep attention, acceptance, and unconditional love. You not only deserve it – it’s a vital ingredient in restoring yourself to a being radiating grace and vitality.

Trauma leaves its survivors feeling frozen… frightened… stuck…

In order to thaw, we need the warmth and light of research that's rooted in compassion.

Nick Polizzi and Dr. Pedram Shojai are about to release their latest and most urgent nine-part docuseries, all about recognizing our own trauma – emotional, physical, and societal.

Over 55 Esteemed Doctors, Psychologists, Healers, and Trauma Experts Reveal the Truth About the Hidden Wounds We All Carry and How to Heal From Them

But first, let’s get something out of the way…

What is Trauma?

Whatever you answered in your head, expand it. Make it bigger. Wider. More impactful.

Trauma is…

A hard lesson learned before you were ready.

A shock to your system.

A tear in the fabric of your life.

These moments, big and little, rare and recurring, hide in pockets of our narratives and define our entire personalities.

And contrary to the beliefs we were all raised on, unresolved trauma doesn’t simply go away.

It festers. It twists us up from the inside, changing the shape of us, informing our interactions with the world around us.

Leading experts know that unresolved trauma leaves a biochemical mark, rearranges the functioning of the nervous system, and stagnates our energy, rippling out to cause issues like addictions, eating disorders, dysfunctional relationships, domestic violence, and even chronic disease down the road.

But the lessons and testimonials shared in this series prove they don’t have to.

More than 55 mental health, psychotherapy, and neurology experts come together in this ground-breaking nine-part series to help you get out from under the thumb of trauma. Here’s where you’ve seen them before:

Are you ready to free yourself?

You are not alone…

Others have walked this path before you – including the experts in this series.

We have searched, interviewed, scoured, prodded, and peeled back the layers of more traumas than you knew existed to find actionable solutions that address the collective pain of humanity at the ROOT.

Triggering Trauma





Emotional Trauma Part One

  • All mammals have a particular neural system in common… and it can end up screwing with the way you remember your trauma, keeping you stuck in the eternal now…

  • Why speaking negatively about yourself doesn’t “keep you honest” – it actually serves to reinforce a trauma response…

  • Certain kinds of traumas can cause “weight loss resistance” via chemical distress signals, but you would only know to check for it if someone told you. Our bodies and our minds are more connected than you think…

  • How the Earth’s seasons are a direct result of trauma to the Earth’s body – and what that can teach us about the miracle of post-traumatic growth. Never heard of it? It’s a gift that only those with trauma in their lives can hope for…

  • Sometimes, survival can be a real killer. When your trauma-adaptive behaviors can become maladaptive, there are certain questions you should be asking yourself to do a fresh assessment of your survival circuitry…



Emotional Trauma Part Two

  • The biggest difference between what “fight” and “flight” mean to a person who’s experienced trauma… Hint: It’s not about what you do with your feet.

  • Often, people with trauma find themselves trapped in loops of attracting people with repeating behaviors… That’s not by accident – it’s by design. Find out what that’s really telling you about yourself.

  • How and why the logical left brain is trying to keep you safe from the hopeful vulnerability of the right brain…

  • Forgiveness is always tough, especially depending on the nature of the trespass. Sometimes, we have to move on without even getting an apology. But there’s a more powerful way to reframe and reclaim being a “victim.” It banks on your bravery...

  • What the four pillars of healing from any kind of trauma are

  • Why neuroplasticity is on the frontlines of personalized trauma healing, bringing trauma from the psychiatric field exclusively into the medical field…



Emotional Trauma Part Three

  • Were you sick a lot as a kid, and given antibiotics? The gut microbiome can only take so many hits in early development… and that can point to traumatic health disasters in the future – from mental, to physical, to emotional.

  • Why age three is considered a turning point in child psychology, and one of the riskiest ages to experience a trauma… (If you consider yourself an empath, this might have been the age you developed that evolutionary survival mechanism.)

  • What the pre-adolescent eye-roll actually means, and it’s not what you think…

  • Why animals don’t experience trauma the same way that we do, even though their nervous system generates a similar response…

  • No, that feeling that you get seeing, reading, or hearing bad news all the time is not overreacting… the nature of the collective trauma energy field is real (and it has a name)...



Physical Trauma

  • Why the strength, flexibility, and resources of your nervous system are a greater indicator of traumatic impact than the event itself… It’s got a very specific name, too.

  • The old adage is true – everything is created twice. What does that mean for your emotional or physical trauma responses?

  • There’s a specific stem cell that’s responsible for your body’s healing after a physical trauma… but an MRI won’t catch all the microscopic damage that’s being done. Here’s how to check instead…

  • Defeatist thinking actually informs your physical healing. Your thoughts matter more than you realize.

  • The diet and lifestyle plan that works in harmony with your body to reverse the effects of multiple sclerosis…

  • You should never get too chummy with your therapist. If you think of them as a friend, it might be time to let them go, for the sake of your neural strength.



Physical Trauma Part Two

  • What a major medical care provider revealed in their landmark study of nearly 10,000 participants about childhood trauma markers that make heart disease, strokes, depression, smoking habits, and suicides more likely…

  • How trauma at birth can actually be encoded in the brain, and even shows up on a QEEG brain map…

  • Returning to homeostasis after a traumatic event is so vital. If you’re not able to do that, there are a whole host of things that can happen later as a direct and traceable result…

  • A person who has been abused continues the cycle right where an abuser left off. You need to know what that looks like, so you can catch yourself when you’re doing it and stop the cycle. You don’t need to pile more pain onto your plate.

  • How compounding traumas with our increasingly prevalent modern cocktail of underlying issues has irrevocably broadened the spectrum of trauma responses…



Societal Trauma

  • Societal trauma can be difficult to quantify, but not if you use these three major points…

  • Distance used to have a buffering effect between us and traumas far, far away… It matters that that’s no longer true…

  • Epigenetics has proven what persecuted peoples have long known to be true – trauma gets passed down in families. There are specific genes researchers have found consistently morphing in situations of multi-generational, major traumas (like genocides and slavery), and we need to understand how they work…

  • Why family and religious patterns of behavior can be so dangerous to us when they end in trauma, and how to look for the signs…

  • What has to happen in order for transgenerational trauma to remain coded beyond four generations… Always trust in your own sense of well-being. If you don’t feel like you’re okay, you probably aren’t.



Societal Trauma Part Two

  • Why empathy and forgiveness are essential touchstones on the way to healing… and how to wield them wisely…

  • The social movements we recognize in today’s world are sweeping, spiritual shifts in collective consciousness – which is to say, they’re trauma responses…

  • Major cultural events can affect millions of brains in the same exact way… and that can make it harder to heal from them…

  • Why the brain wants a breakthrough in order to heal… but what you should actually be giving it instead, if you really want a lasting legacy of healing…

  • Homeopathic healing traditions can help you center and locate trauma in your body after major ruptures. When we limit ourselves to talk therapy, we miss out on all kinds of pressure-tested methods for extracting our traumas.



Identifying Your Trauma

  • Trauma goes beyond mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual – researchers have classified near infinite types of daggers that can cause those thousands of cuts…

  • Why losing your curiosity for the world around you can be a powerful signal that your brain is traumatized…

  • We up-regulate the autonomic functions of the brain during traumatic events in order to prepare us for danger and trouble, and to get us through moments of incredible pain. But that can lead to documented and measurable hyper-sensitivity and hyper-vigilance…

  • Survival circuitry formed as a defense against trauma can serve to block healing… You need to find out how to get around that mechanism…

  • Why betrayal can often be found at the beginning of the personal narratives of the world’s greatest givers… But what you need are the five stages of betrayal healing that are found in the middle of those narratives.

  • Our parents are the source of so many developmental traumas – but not always on purpose. Sometimes, they’re doing the best they can with the tools they’ve got. You’ve still got to heal, though. There are certain traits we should try to recognize in our parents that help us solve the riddle of why we keep trying to learn to tolerate perpetrators…
