Gabe Caplice and Annette Baker talk with Lucy Dahill about living life with more love and how it can affect our physical and mental health. The World Health Organisation (WHO) predicts over 11 million deaths from coronary heart disease in 2020. Why do we indulge in lifestyle choices that mean we are pre-disposed to major physical disease? Could it be there are underlying hurts we are not addressing that lead us to protect ourselves? Join us for a fresh look at choices and consequences.
When I looked at the feelings that were listed as coming up post CVD diagnosis listed here:
- anxiety and stress about the future
- confusion over changing roles in the family
- sense of losing control of your life
- fear of changes in your lifestyle
- fear of resuming physical and sexual activity
- anxiety about work commitments
- fear of a slow recovery.
We didn't manage to discuss it but there was a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania called Rosetto that is worth paying attention to! I have included the link below for those who are interested in seeing how, if we live as a caring and connected community we can influence our physical health outcomes.
As with everything in our bodies, a combined approach is always preferred - don't discount the amazing work medicine and doctors can do when we bring a fully committed and dedicated approach as the patient.
