6.0 Getting Physical. What Does Grief Feel Like in the Body?


Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness.  It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love.  The only cure for grief is to grieve.  – Rabbi Earl Grollman

Today we’re going to talk about the physical effects of grief on the body.  In a 2014 study in Journal of the American Medical Association showed that within 30 days of their partner’s death, people ages 60 and old had more than twice the risk of a stroke or heart attack compared to people who hadn’t suffered such a loss.  Grief affects your physically.  Join me today to see if you are experiencing any of these effects as you walk out the grief process.
