Physical and psychological distress play a role in the development of autoimmune disease as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Many studies confirm the effect of different stressors on the function of the immune system. In addition, many retrospective studies have shown that up to 80% of patients reported uncommon emotional stress before disease onset. The immune system plays […]
How our gut functions: digestion of food, presence of food sensitivities and/or allergies, and processing of stress may be a sign of earlier difficult life experiences. Recent study reports that people with altered microbiomes have differently shaped brains. The hypothesis is that it is probable that this relationship isn’t unidirectional. The scientists state that the […]
Research shows that chronic inflammation may be one mechanism through which abuse affects the risk of disease later in life.
Early life stress (ELS) can induce changes on behavioural and metabolic responses later in life. Stress early in life may cause persistent programming changes on the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis functioning. Persistent hyperactivation of HPA axis can cause damage. Study investigating whether changes in thyroid hormone metabolism could explain mechanistic links between early life stress. […]
