Menopause will not get worse if you worry about it, but stress can aggravate the symptoms. Our bodies are complex systems with the stress hormones, the ovaries, the chemical systems, they all interrelate.

How often do you hug? Do you like to sit close and hold each other’s hands? Recent research shows it’s good for your health.

Irregular heartbeats, or arrhythmias, are extra beats of the heart, which run the gamut from being of no health risk to absolutely life-threatening. We get extra beats of the heart from time to time, and not all are dangerous.

Generally if a patient is asymptomatic, there is no concern.
