Part 1 Abandoning the child, the ace test and effect in health by Sarahjanediamond published on 2016-03-10T11:51:07Z WE explore how to heal the abandoned child, your ACE score and accessing your true nature, healing your body mind and how to live in your True Nature. Research shows early life stress epigenetically resets the gluticocorticoid receptors, resulting in a lowered threshold required for a stress response. So, early life stress causes chronic release of stress hormones and inflammatory cytokines. Genes that shut off the stress response are silenced. The body is flooded with inflammation at the slightest provocation, and researchers have confirmed that crucial set of breaks are off, and the body is marinading in inflammatory chemicals. A study by Dr Joan Kaufman and colleagues also looked at epigenetic differences in children with ACEs and found gene expression changes across the entire genome, including genes implicated in cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and cancer.
