Early Childhood Adversity Affects Health Across Lifetime
Please click here to watch an inspiring 15 minute TED talk.
Nadine Burke MPH MD brilliantly speaks about about ACEs —
ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES leading to a lifetime of increased susceptibility to many diseases.
A study of 17,500 adults shows staggering correlations between increased ACEs and disease across a lifetime.
The more exposure to childhood trauma from these life experiences, the higher the predictability that people get sick:
1. physical or emotional abuse
2. physical or emotional neglect
3. parental emotional illness
4. substance abuse or dependence
6. parental separation or divorce
7. domestic violence
This video is a wake up call that children need protection from toxic family experiences through education and holistic healing modalities.
