Surprising Impact of Family Relationships on Your Health

Surprising Impact of Family Relationships on Your Health

You might not expect that your family has a greater impact on your health than your spouse does. The results of a study that tested the extent to which the emotional climate in family relationships and intimate partnerships are linked to long term health were even surprising to our host! Ned breaks down what it all means in this week’s mini Distraction.

    I would like to emphasize that not only family relationships affect health, but also health greatly affects your relationship. This is very interconnected. After all, if nothing bothers you, there are no pain, you will be in harmony with each other. In the name of this, my family regularly takes CBD oil. Of course, this works if you take effective oils like these: and only when everyone in the family is healthy, we will come to harmony.

    Thank you for your podcast. This is a great solution. In fact, the attitude in your family plays a key role in health, I believe. My friend works as a pharmacist who is on the list of the best and she says that she began to feel much better after her relationship with her husband became much better
