adverse childhood experiences - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Only a strategy that takes ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) and how they relate to the stress response can have any lasting effect on obesity in the nation. Irrespective of income, though they are correlated to poverty for obvious reasons, they are the engine we need to "fix" alongside the other measures that deal with the "fuel intake" and "energy burnt." Otherwise we run the risk of acing the symptoms rather than unveiling the all-too-painful and often embarrassing cause. Without more love in our society, without less of the things that cause humans stress, obesity and the other ill-health factors that ACEs bring will continue to haunt us.
Without treatment, adverse childhood experiences can cause long term health issues for the brain and body, shortening lives and reducing their quality. One of the most effective remedies is talking to someone kind, who will listen and hear you deeply - a therapist or someone that loves you and has the ability to remain stable and dependable regardless of what you need to say. So, my lovely, feel free to take all the therapy you need - after all, it is the strong that ask and the brave that are willing to show vulnerability.
