Health and Social Contact
Visionaries: Lee Lipsenthal, MD and Marilyn Schlitz, PhD
Lee Lipsenthal, MD, talks with Marilyn Schlitz in this segment about social interactions and group support positively effecting health. Lee discusses research and statistics that indicate interpersonal connection at a level of vulnerability can have an effect on the healing process from heart disease, blood pressure and depression. The quality of interaction rather than the quantity of interactions is important. Social isolation from deep meaningful conversations at least once a day at work or at home can have a detrimental effect on your health.
