We have replaced the need for touch and intimacy with sex and most of the time porn sex. The belief that sex with someone random, just to have sex, can replace the healing of touch, of connection is a false and empty belief, but a strong belief for most Americans.
We are energy beings and exchanging energy through touch, understanding, eye contact and compassion literally raises and strengthens one’s energy.
Making it a point to touch someone lovingly and to be touched lovingly daily, can strengthen your immune system, lessen depression, raise dopamine in your body while lowering the stress hormones, cortisol, and adrenaline.
Touch is truly healing, important and just what the Dr. Ordered.
