Did you know that the QUALITY of your relationships can make or break your health?
I think most of us are aware of the research demonstrating that people with MORE social ties have better health outcomes. But what I don’t think is talked about often enough is that the QUALITY of your social ties is just as (if not, more) important.
In fact, a recent Harvard study revealed that…
“...high conflict marriages are worse for our health than divorce.”
This same research also found that when looking at the data from the 700 participants in the Harvard Study of Adult Development...
“...It wasn’t their middle aged cholesterol levels that predicted how they were going to grow old, it was how satisfied they were in their relationships. The people who were the most satisfied in their relationships at age 50 were the healthiest at age 80.”
My point is...when it comes to health, it’s not about having a lot of relationships, it’s about having high quality, “securely attached” relationships.
Imagine being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 9 years old.
After 10 years of trying to successfully manage your condition to no avail you end up in a freshman biology course that finally helps you understand WHY you developed an autoimmune disease and why chronic disease rates are rising rapidly.
And most importantly, WHAT you need to do to feel better than you ever have in your life.
This is what happened to this week’s podcast guest, board certified chiropractic and Functional Medicine practitioner, Dr. Stephen Hussey.
Dr. Hussey has a bachelor’s degree in Health and Wellness Promotion from the University of North Carolina Asheville, a Master’s in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and a Doctorate of Chiropractic both from the University of Western States. He is the author of The Health Evolution: Why Understanding Evolution is the Key to Vibrant Health and The Heart: Our Most Medically Misunderstood Organ.
Dr. Hussey is passionate and super nerdy (in the best possible way!) which made for a fascinating conversation! Here are some of the fascinating tidbits you’re in for...
What he did to manage his autoimmune condition
The food group that was wreaking havoc on his gut health
The 4 principles of evolution that explain the rise in chronic disease
The 5 imbalances that cause chronic disease
What 3 things TRULY cause heart disease
Why I used to pass out in high school
And so much more!
I hope you listen in and feel ENLIGHTENED and EMPOWERED, and then share this important information with everyone you know and love.
Thanks for listening!
If there is ONE thing that concerns me deeply, it’s the fact that mental health issues are on the rise in a big way. In fact, according to the WHO, between 1990 and 2013 the number of people suffering from depression and/or anxiety increased by almost 50%!
Today, depression is the major cause of suicide, certain people become suicidal shortly after using antidepressants and almost ⅓ of of those treated with antidepressant therapy, do NOT respond.
That. Is. Terrifying.
Are you consuming a paleo diet yet still struggling with digestive issues or symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as stubborn weight gain, fatigue, skin breakouts or PMS?
If so you MUST listen to this week’s podcast, Cultivating Body Wisdom (and healing from the root cause!) with Registered Dietitian and FDN-P (and one of my favorite people), Amanda Montalvo.
I met Amanda at Paleo FX last year and fell in love immediately. She was passionate, educated and as nerdy as I was about all things wellness. As we got to know each other better, we realized that we were attracting the same type of clients:
Motivated women who were eating a paleo diet, but were still stuck.
