Fear, anger, and anxiety that go on for too long can lead to a list of debilitating ailments that are so common we assume they are unavoidable: insomnia, heart disease, arthritis, gastrointestinal problems, and more. The key to reversing the negative impacts of stress and reclaiming our health is simple: love. Love sets off a series of physiological events in the body that help us adapt to life's challenges, stop and reverse disease, maintain health, and make it easier for our bodies to improve rather than deteriorate with age.
