DO YOU THINK STRESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS CAN HARM YOUR HEALTH?

A study in Britain says YES, it can.


A lousy marriage might literally make you sick.

Marital strife and other bad personal relationships can raise your risk for heart disease, researchers reported Monday.

What it likely boils down to is stress -- a well-known contributor to health problems, as well as a potential byproduct of troubled relationships, the scientists said.

In a study of 9,011 British civil servants, most of them married, those with the worst close relationships were 34 percent more likely to have heart attacks or other heart trouble during 12 years of follow-up than those with good relationships. That included partners, close relatives and friends.

There's a segment of research in the Biology of Empowerment that the heart actually has much more to do with a person's consciousness than their brain. Our real "brain" is our heart, which is why strong relationships are so important to our health. I know through personal experience that every illness today was the result of stress yesterday; the illness we see is the red-shifted after-effect of how we feel.

Feel better soon, Cat. :wink:
