Freud was on to something I swear. But it was more than psychological.
Have you ever wondered how your childhood experiences have shaped your health today? Turns out Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, like abuse, neglect and household dysfunction can lead to significant medical and mental health problems. We have known for a long time that anxiety, depression, bipolar and more severe psychiatric conditions can result from childhood trauma, but more research is being done on how these experiences can be directly related to your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, hepatitis, HIV and even cancers.
Understanding your risk for certain conditions can help you take steps to prevent them. And not only can you take a look at your own experiences, but knowing where you came from can help you become a better parent.
Acknowledging traumas from your past can help ensure that you don’t repeat them with your children. Just because someone survives childhood trauma doesn’t mean it has not become part of who they are, or part of their genetic expression. And it doesn’t mean that they have learned other ways of coping.
Take this quick anonymous quiz to determine your ACE risk and read on to see how it translates to health risks. If you identify that you are at higher risk for medical or psychological conditions because of ACEs, make sure you talk to your doctor. The sooner you know, the more you can do to protect yourself and your family!
