Love is What Heals
A very wise teacher of mine once said ‘Love is a very powerful healer’. This may sound a little bit out there, but there is a perfectly scientific explanation for the way love ‘works’. When we receive love, hormones are released that lower blood pressure, improve mood and trust, increase tolerance for pain, etc. In a state of greater relaxation and reduced stress all bodily functions shift away from ‘fight or flight’ to healing.
