What do Genetics Have to do With My Mood?
Mood disorders have a very large inheritance pattern. (Some studies estimate between 40-75%) If one or more of your parents struggled with mood issues, there is a good chance you may too. It’s not just living in the same household but also you may have inherited specific genes that are associated with mood issues.
Anxiety, Stress, Worry?? Finally, some answers!!
Are you still suffering from constant anxiety, stress, and worry? It’s possible that this is due to your genetics. Being born with genetic variants in the COMT genes can lead to excess levels of stress-inducing hormones that you cannot efficiently break down. This leaves your body in a constant state of stress and anxiety. It can interfere with sleep and relaxation and lead to less enjoyment of your life.
