| Love & Health
I am convinced that unconditional love is the most powerful known stimulant of the immune system. If I told patients to raise their blood levels of immune globulins or killer T cells, no one would know how. But if I can teach them to love themselves and others fully, the same changes happen automatically. The truth is: love heals. (Bernie Siegel, MD)
Love releases incredible energy that promotes the biochemistry of healing. (Bernie Siegel, MD)
Love is giving with no expectations... Love cures, heals, and rewards two people: the lover and the beloved. (Bernie Siegel, MD)
Couples should consider sleeping apart for the good of their health and relationship. Sleep research has shown that couples that share a bed suffer on average 50% more sleep disturbances.
Poor sleep is linked to depression, heart disease, strokes, lung disorders, traffic and industrial accidents, Alzheimer's and divorce.
The marital bed is an invention of the Industrial Revolution when people moved to cities and space was limited.
However, do what makes you happy, although beware that research has also shown that people say they sleep better when with their partner, when this is actually not the case! (BBC, posted 9 September 2009, accessed 24 July 2017)

Bernie Siegel said that to be healed, find something to love. Why not love the Sun? The Sun will never reject you. The Sun is always here to be loved and it will always love you - for even if its light and warmth are briefly away, its energy permeates the entirety of our solar system. And as the Sun becomes more real inwardly to you, its warmth and light will always be accessible. Spiritual light in the mind, comforting fire in the heart. I love me. I love you. Love everywhere. (Bruce Mitchell)
The basic therapy is love. Love is the imperial medicine for any illness or disorder. (Father Gabriel Mejia)
The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple and love without measure. (Tibetan proverb)
