Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?

When you first met your spouse you probably had a physical response to the emotions you felt. You'd get butterflies in your stomach, your heart would race, and your palms would sweat. So why is it that after you're married, it's so hard to make the connection between your physical health and your emotional well-being when you're facing relational stress?

If your emotional pain feels physical and your physical pain feels emotional, your marriage may be making you sick--literally. Join Dr. David Hawkins and his sons, an internist and a surgeon, as they explore the effects relational stress and trauma can have on our bodies. You will learn to . . .

  • recognize the link between emotional and physical pain
  • embrace the power of choice to become empowered by hope
  • find a path forward to ultimate restoration and regain your life

No matter what kind of pain you're experiencing, or how long your health has been in decline, you don't have to stay stuck. Discover hope and healing when you take control of your life.
