  1. I'm curious what correlation is between these ACE's and the onset & rise of autoimmune disorders. I was in a toxic household growing up and tho I wasn't physically or sexually abused, there was some extreme emotional trauma in what I witnessed on the regular growing up.
    Now I was diagnosed 12 years ago with crohn's disease in my early 30's though I am certain that I had been living with undiagnosed crohn's for over 10 years prior.
    Anyway, I could go on & on but I just am curious if there was any connection to the ACE's and the onset of autoimmune disease.
