Love Sick: How Your Partner Influences Your Health | Dr. Neal Barnard Exam Room LIVE Q&A

Can you spouse or significant other make you physically sick?

The joke writes itself, but it’s truly no laughing matter. The answer is yes! And the reasons extend beyond just the day-to-day hiccups of relationships.

Research shows that your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, or partner can have a direct influence on your health. Dr. Neal Barnard, author of The Power Foods Diet, joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to explain how the love of your life is influencing your ability to be healthy.

Dr. Barnard explains that it’s a double-edged sword. While some relationships can become a barrier to being healthy others can work very much work in your favor to build a healthier body inside and out.

To demonstrate how significant the influence your partner may have, Dr. Barnard shares a study examining high blood pressure among couples. If one person has high blood pressure the other is at a significantly higher risk of having it as well! And that’s just the tip of the health relationship iceberg!

In The Power Foods Focus, Dr. Barnard also shares the foods that you should be eating to boost your metabolism and achieve your weight loss goals.
