E45: The Physical Domain of Grief

Mar 15, 2024

"Sick with grief" describes the profound toll of loss on our bodies during the grieving process. Grief is defined as the deep emotional response to loss, and encompasses a spectrum of reactions that extend beyond mere mourning. Alongside its emotional weight, grief also manifests physically, with symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, and a weakened immune response.

Exploring the physical domain of grief, Dr. Kirtly Jones discusses the interconnection between emotional and physical well-being during times of loss.
