In Sickness and in Health: The Physical Consequences of Emotional Stress in Marriage


Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? 

When you first met your spouse you probably had a physical response to the emotions you felt. You’d get butterflies in your stomach, your heart would race, and your palms would sweat. So why is it that after you’re married, it’s so hard to make the connection between your physical health and your emotional well-being when you’re facing relational stress?

If your emotional pain feels physical and your physical pain feels emotional, your marriage may be making you sick—literally. Join Dr. David Hawkins and his sons, an internist and a surgeon, as they explore the effects relational stress and trauma can have on our bodies. You will learn to . . .

recognize the link between emotional and physical pain
embrace the power of choice to become empowered by hope
find a path forward to ultimate restoration and regain your life
No matter what kind of pain you’re experiencing, or how long your health has been in decline, you don’t have to stay stuck. Discover hope and healing when you take control of your life.

My Thoughts:
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Are you worn out? Not sure where to turn to or why you can't shake something. In Sickness and In Health shows how any type of stress will lead to illness if not taken care of. It examines if one is sick, how to take ahold of their stress and treat it. This book is a good book for those who are counseling. It provides solutions to help those who have been through traumatic events in their life deal with stress. Overall, great thoughts to ponder in this book. Thank you to the publisher for providing a complimentary copy. A review was not required.
