Childhood Experiences and DNA

An earlier post asked about stress and trauma and the link to autoimmune disease. I thought this article on how childhood experiences can affect inflammation genes may be of interest.

Great article in my view. I believe also that our parents and grandparents have a play in this....let's say a parent did not address trauma in their life, then I think that influences nature and nurture. My spouse is a perfect example of this. I believe theirs, not just his traumatic childhood played a part in his autoimmune disease. So sad really

Good article and quite interesting. It would seem that Health Unlocked contributors from all the auto immune disease forums could be a good source of information. For myself I nearly died when I was about 5 with what they called encephalitis which literally took the legs from under me, I was ill for a very long time. I wonder how many others of us have had stressful events in our young lives. Thank you for sharing this article.

Can somebody please just tell me what Dr. Grundy's(?) so-called 3 super foods 'that we should never, ever eat' are, please??

I tried watching the promo video, but lost the will to live after he had introduced himself for the 3rd time.
