Episode Description

Stress is the 6th largest cause of death in the U.S. 75-95% of all disease is due to stress. Just imagine what the constant stress of abuse does to a child's developing body. The abuse could be emotional, physical, mental or sexual toward the child, a sibling or a parent. Because the diagnosis is often years after the childhood abuse, it has taken researchers a long time to discover the connection. Here are some of the diseases that have been specifically tied to childhood abuse: chronic pain, diabetes, eating disorders, autoimmune diseases, diverticulitis, heart disease, cancer, depression and sleep disorders. Knowing that an individual's condition is the result of childhood abuse increases the potential for cure with additional avenues of treatment. For instance, if you have diabetes, changing your diet or taking insulin is necessary but not sufficient. Please join us Thursday to learn the 4 additional ways to treat the health problems created from childhood abuse.
