Did you know that the experiences you have during childhood can have a lasting impact on your health and wellbeing? Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic events that occur during childhood, such as abuse, neglect, or household dysfunction. These experiences can have a profound effect on your physical and mental health, leading to a higher risk of chronic diseases and a shorter lifespan.
Research has shown that the more ACEs you experience, the greater your risk of developing health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, and depression. But the good news is that it's never too late to address these issues. By understanding the impact of ACEs and seeking support to overcome them, you can take steps to improve your health and wellbeing, and ultimately enjoy a longer, healthier life. So don't wait – start taking control of your health today.
