Stress Dysregulation

By Mike Parker | June 10, 2017

“An epigenetic change known as “methylation”— named after methyl, the chemical compound that is responsible— shuts down a key gene that is designed to tell the stress system to turn off when a threat has passed.

These three elements should work together as a team.
