Allow me to add another interesting detail to this convo. Whether you’re a woman or a man, listen up because knowing this can make a huge difference in your life, especially when it comes to managing your health and relationships.
If you are woman, take a deep breath now. Unfortunately, studies have shown that females have more complex patterns of childhood adversity. In turn, females are more significantly more likely than males to report a range of ACEs and mental health, social, and emotional difficulties in adulthood. For example, women have a 2:1 ration of depression compared with men.
And if you have ever sit down to talk to you male family members and compared notes about childhood, you may have wondered why men don’t remember as many details, especially when it comes to negative experiences, as much as women do…
Dr. Margaret McCarthy, professor of neuroscience at the University of Maryland, discovered that males make about twice as many neurons during the first week of life as females. This may allow males to later “forget” some of the bad things that happened to them, including early life adverse events.
The hormone differences between the gender also cause women to face higher rates of chronic conditions compared to men.
Although this seem unfair and all, there is nothing we can do about our genders. However, each one of us can take steps to heal.
Next episode, I will talk about letting go of these traumas so you can heal and grow to an even more extraordinary version of yourself. I have a high score myself (more coming on that). You and I are not doomed!
That’s it about the ACE Study for today. In the meantime, when you are ready to kick start your health transformation, get the knowledge and accountability you need to succeed, let’s do this. Go to BeFabBeYou.com and schedule a complimentary call. I’d love to be part of your health village.
