One of the greatest public health crises any society faces is childhood developmental trauma. The trajectory of a person’s lifelong holistic health is determined less by genetics and more by epigenetics. Healthy epigenetic expression is determined by how completely a person’s childhood developmental needs were met and how secure the parent-child attachment relationship had been from birth through adolescence. Devastating numbers of children in industrialized and agricultural societies alike suffer developmental trauma and parent-child attachment disruption, which are scientifically correlated to lifelong deleterious outcomes in mental and physical health, including addiction, violence, suicidal ideation, autoimmune diseases, and premature mortality. Nature’s intent for children’s epigenetic, physical, psychological, neurological, cognitive, social, sexual, and spiritual development is foundational to holistic health. While a healthy Paleolithic diet is part of that equation, so must be attachment parenting and play-based learning: Paleolithic parenting and educating.
