THE LOVE RESPONSE is a medically grounded book that shows us how to change our body’s physiology quickly and lastingly through the deliberate evocation of a series of biochemical reactions in the body that lower blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and adrenaline levels, counteract the unhealthy effects of fear and stress and allow us to experience the myriad health benefits of nature’s own antidote: love and affection. Moving beyond the hopeful advice of Positive Psychology, Dr. Selhub’s groundbreaking work shows us how to actually change the body’s chemical responses in times of stress, neutralizing adrenaline, cortisol and other detrimental substances in the blood, a revolutionary concept she calls Positive Physiology.
