The Secret to Living a Longer, Healthier Life CAN YOU FEEL THE LOVE? The human brain is an incredibly powerful organ. It solves complex problems, recalls forgotten memories, and triggers a dizzying array of emotions. But its most incredible power is the effect it can have on the rest of the body. When it comes to love, well, our brains certainly love it, and our bodies reflect that.

Odds are, you love coming into work every day to a clean, well-organized office. But have you given much thought to the types of cleaners being used on your floors, tables, and other equipment? If your answer is “no,” you’re not alone. Plenty of health care professionals don’t spend much time considering their cleaning products. However, it turns out that using the wrong products can be detrimental to the health of your patients, your staff, and even you! According to the EPA, many cleaning products contain chemicals that cause skin, eye, and respiratory irritation, hurting both human health and the environment. That means your patients could actually leave your office feeling worse than they did when they came in! With that in mind, Chiro1Source has started stocking a new multipurpose cleaner from Evergreen Cleaning Co. that’s nontoxic, eco-friendly, and sustainable.

Less Stress

Human beings thrive on a sense of connection and belonging, and studies have shown that love actually has positive effects on a person’s physical health as well as mental. The security and commitment felt in a loving relationship are shown to reduce stress by stunting the production of cortisol, the body’s stress-inducing hormone. Less stress means lower blood pressure, a healthier heart, and a lower risk of stroke, especially in men.

Healthier Immune Systems

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University found that calm, happy people can fight common colds and the flu more easily than those who are anxious or depressed. The physical benefits of love even go as far as healing wounds quicker. Small injuries inflicted on a wide test group at Ohio State University Medical Center healed nearly twice as fast on people who experienced consistent warmth and care than those who experienced hostility. In fact, the latter group needed almost a full additional day to achieve the same amount of healing as the first group. Being surrounded by love may even save your life. A statistic from the National Health Interview Survey states that single people face a 58% higher risk of mortality. Further bolstering that claim is the Harvard Health Blog, which claims happily married participants experience better health as they age when compared to peers in unhappy partnerships. In fact, the blog asserts, “People in stressful, unhappy marriages may be worse off than a single person who is surrounded by supportive and caring friends, family, and loved ones.” So, it seems the results are in: Loving someone is a healthy lifestyle choice. Even having a strong network of friends and family boosts your odds of living a long life by 50%. So, get out there and make the healthy choice for yourself and those around you by leading a life full of love. Longer, Happier Lives

Charlotte, North Carolina, residents Nick Hébert and Ryan Cook are the

masterminds behind Evergreen Cleaning Co. Both health and fitness nuts, they were inspired by their eco-conscious wives to create a safe, 100% plant-based cleaning product that would be better for them, their

kids, and the planet. This was particularly important to Ryan, who already breathed in toxins during his day job as a firefighter.
