Divorce and your health

Follow Us

Studies show that not only does divorce wreak havoc on emotions and bank accounts; it also can have a long-lasting impact on your health.

It continues to say that divorced people suffer from 20% more chronic illness than those who have not experienced divorce.  In addition, the physical effects may linger over time.  This does not always occur immediately after divorce; it can happen many years later.

Reasons for health issues in women include being alone and poor job opportunities.  Studies also indicate that after divorce, some individuals just don’t care any longer – they stop taking care of themselves, eat junk food and stop exercising.

Studies are taking place every day.  It is a fact though that emotional and physical changes that take place after divorce and erode an individual’s overall physical health.  If you are going through a divorce, don’t let it affect your health; be aware of these risks.
