Health and Happiness: How Improving Your Health Can Improve Your Marriage with Dr. Bhavesh Patel

55: Health and Happiness: How Improving Your Health Can Improve Your Marriage with Dr. Bhavesh Patel

Have you ever wondered how your physical health can impact your relationship? 

I’ve had many counseling sessions with couples that have resulted in referring them to see their medical practitioner for underlying health issues that can impact mood and energy levels. By improving your wellness, you can regain the motivation and energy to improve your marriage as well. 

That’s why I am excited for you to hear from my guest in this episode, Dr. Bhavesh Patel. 

Dr. Patel is an expert in age management, functional medicine, and men’s health. He is a board-certified physician who has been in clinical practice for over 18 years. He currently resides with his family in the Chicago area where he founded the Chicago Cenegenics practice. 

In this episode, Dr. Patel explains some common issues he treats in his practice that could potentially be affecting YOUR health and relationship. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • What functional medicine and optimal wellness are
  • Why functional medicine is a great support to marriage counseling
  • How hormone management can support your relationship    
  • How a man can potentially decrease his mortality risk by 50%
  • Why entrepreneurs are commonly suffering from low testosterone
  • What bioidentical hormones are 
  • How cortisol levels impact your health and energy 
  • How a lifestyle change can strengthen your marriage

As you will hear from Dr. Patel, it’s a worthy endeavor to improve your marriage. When you do, it’s important to address any health issues that may be the underlying cause for your marital struggles. If you make the effort to improve your health, then it will also improve your relationship with your spouse. It’s truly a win/win for everyone.
