February 14, 2016 Dear Friends,
St. Valentine's Day! This week and this month we seem to celebrate the
gift of Love. Many of us have allowed this word to be co-opted by
a"romantic" love concept that seems to exclude the many other loves that
exist. What about the love bond between parent and child? Best friends?
Spiritual love? Love between siblings, for grandparents -- aunts,
uncles, cousins? Of course, there is love for those romantic partners
that may last a few moments or a lifetime! But how about loving yourself which is where we all should start? St.
Valentine is partly known for the letters of encouragement he wrote to
other prisoners, as well as, for encouraging people to get married and
form families. His famous last letter was signed,"your Valentine".
you know that feeling loved helps our nervous system and immune system
to function at the highest level? We fight off infection, recover faster
from injury or illness, sleep better, and stay healthier when we have
warm, loving relationships with family or friends. That doesn't mean
that we must be married, or must have 20 siblings, or that we need 100
"close" friends to feel loved. We can start by caring for ourselves and
loving that each of us is a miracle! Then, we can begin to love and
appreciate those around us --family of every relationship, spouses,
friends and acquaintances-- to reap the very real benefits of love in
in our office love to help you achieve the highest level of health,
wellness and vitality! We DO love our patients and express that love by

pillow, a commitment to care for yourself and your health today!
Happy St. Valentine's Day and much love from your Healthy Valentine,
