Everyone has a different opinion about whether fighting for couples is healthy or not. To be honest, I think it does not matter if people think you should fight with your partner or not. Because something is going to happen, probably related to loading the dishwasher, and you're not going to think about fighting. You're just going to fight. But maybe you should not do it. Because fighting with your partner can make you ill in a rather coarse way. So maybe your husband just put pots and pans in the dishwasher as a sociopath and stay healthy?
A new study from the Wexner Medical Center at the University of Ohio looked at how arguments with your significant other might affect your health. Or more specifically, your intestinal health. The collected research showed that couples with mostly hostile battles suffered more from leaky gut syndrome. So here is what happens with leaky gut syndrome; the walls of the intestines become more permeable according to Web MD, making it easier for things like bacteria to seep into the bloodstream. People with a leaky gut may experience uncomfortable side effects such as bloating, gas, cramps, sensitivity to food and aches and pains.
And it can be aggravated by a big fight with your partner.
Now before you decide that you will never spit again with your partner, be on your guard. Study lead author Janice Kiecolt-Glaser stated in a statement that couples who regularly fight aggressively were more at risk of becoming ill from the emotional turmoil, according to NBC News :
This study takes a look at chronic, everyday , real stress and leaky gut. We know that inflammations lead to leaky gut and cause a number of age-related diseases. Our research shows that marital stress is conducive to inflammation.
Researchers at the University of Ohio looked at 43 physically healthy married couples who encouraged the couples to engage in real discussions and to concentrate on conflict resolution that would usually cause a big argument. Things like money and family were discussed, which are always quite difficult to navigate for a few. They left the couples alone and filmed for 20 minutes, paying attention to especially hostile behavior such as harsh criticism and my personal favorite argumentation tactic, the glance.
Kielcott-Glaser, a professor of psychiatry, noted in a statement that hostile behavior is a hallmark of a bad marriage & # 39; and can lead to & # 39; adverse physiological changes & # 39 ;. With that in mind, researchers took blood samples from the couples before and after their interviews and compared them. The extra hostile men and women had higher levels of one of the markers for leaky gut, LPS-binding protein, than their calmer counterparts. If one of the people in the study also suffered from depression, researchers discovered that they were at even greater risk of leaky gut, according to the statement: [Depressionandsolemnmarriage-thatiswhythepatientmaybereflectiveofpsychologicalandphysiologicalvulnerabilitiesinhumanswhohavesufferedfromanalienationdisorder
Although the researchers on the New York Post noted that couples who are more at risk for leaky gut can compensate the danger by eating a lot of lean proteins, whole grains and healthy fats. You know, in case they were super attached to the enemy battles and did not want to give up or something.
Otherwise it might be a good idea to give the self-help section of the wedding a little glimpse? Maybe a marriage counseling would not be the worst idea in the world either. Not that I want to tell you your business, but I am willing to give up my classic eye role if it means that I can avoid leaking bowel.
