div_2089056bYou may have heard that half of all marriages end in divorce in the U.S.
The good news: here in Maryland the divorce rate is only 8 in 1,000.
The bad news: if you are one of those 8 per thousand, chances are you are experiencing physical, psychological and social effects.

Research shows divorce take a toll body-mind-& spirit.
Divorce is associated with higher rates of depression, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, anxiety, and insomnia. Feelings of denial, loss, abandonment, betrayal, anger, grief, blame and guilt may all be experienced. Divorce is considered one of the top three most stressful life events.
