3. The Joy Prescription Podcast - The Positive Impact of Faith on Physical Health

Season 1, Ep. 3

On this episode of The Joy Prescription Podcast, my co-host and I continue to explore the first step to creating vibrant health in my Joy Prescription Toolbox - just be still and breathe. Specifically, we discuss the spiritual concept of surrender, and the positive impact of faith on physical, mental and emotional health. You may be surprised to learn just how instrumental religion and spirituality are to experiencing whole-body health.


Our discussion centers around these main ideas:


  • Surrender as an act of faith
  • What scientific literature has to say about the relationship between religion and health
  • Mental health benefits of religious involvement
