Avoiding the Tolls
Life can serve up a heck of a bill. As if the normal hits and hurts of a life-well-lived were not enough, it now requires nearly super-human vigilance to avoid the onslaught of painful news that threatens our core sense of security, and our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness.

In addition to immediate physical stress that causes disruption and disease, studies show trauma registers in our cells, intensifying aging and changing our DNA. Hear that: trauma is changing who we are!
