Scared Sick

      In their groundbreaking new book SCARED SICK: The Role of Childhood Trauma in Adult Disease childhood expert and family therapist Robin Karr-Morse and lawyer and strategist Meredith Wiley illustrate how overstimulation of the body's fear response in the first thousand days of life lies at the root of many common physical diseases, as well as emotional and behavioral pathologies. SCARED SICK is the first book that illuminates how childhood trauma physically alters the body's immune and endocrine systems, setting the stage for many forms of disease that are currently viewed as genetic or as the result of aging.
