Can a Doctor Prescribe Love?

By far the most powerful therapy for any of life’s difficulties is love.  By far the most powerful tool we have to bring out the best in a person is love.  The difference between a happy life and a sad one is the quality of love in that life. Modern psychiatry too often forgets the primary importance of love.  As psychiatrists increasingly simply diagnose and medicate, they miss the great opportunity to “prescribe” love.  I urge my patients to lead what I call a positively connected life. Loving connections can develop in many different ways.  You may feel a loving connection to members of your extended family, to your mate, to your children, to your friends.  You may also feel a loving connection to your pet, to your favorite beach, to a team you root for, to a club or organization, to a piece of music or poem or painting, to nature, to certain ideas, to God.  Loving connections lead to a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life.  They are free and readily available. To tap into their power, all you have to do is intend to do so.http://www.drhallowell.com/live-a-better-life/love/
