TalkRx: Five Steps to Honest Conversations that Create Connection, Health, and Happiness
Your ability to communicate effectively is directly and inextricably linked to your likelihood of being sick, or not.
- Do you say yes when you really mean no?
- Do you avoid conflict at all costs?
- Are you waiting for someone in your life to change in order to get what you want?
If so, you’re not alone. Most people will do anything to avoid the unpleasant sensations that accompany having an honest exchange—even if it’s as simple as declining an invitation. But not speaking directly in the short term results in a much bigger problem long-term: hurt feelings and passive-aggressive patterns that stress us out, keep us up at night, and literally make us sick.

You might be thinking, Communication? I know how to communicate. Don’t be fooled. Communication is simple, but it’s not always easy. Many of us learn from an early age to be guarded about what and how we share with others. Few of us know how to pay attention to our body, thoughts, emotions, and values in order to speak from the heart.
“If you’re thinking of someone else in your life who could really use a book on communication,” says Doctor Neha, “let me remind you—it only takes one person to change the outcome of a conversation. And that person is YOU.” Healthy communication provides pathways for countless opportunities, growth, love, support, friendship and healing. We know this intuitively, yet somehow it’s easy to forget. And perhaps more unexpectedly, and even alarming: Poor communication is harmful to your health. When communication breaks down, our heart rate speeds up. Blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels rise. People who feel misunderstood report a higher incidence of depression, which is uncomfortable enough, but to take it one step further, depression leads to a weakened immune system. Our body’s immune system is our primary defense against disease. Under prolonged stress, we become susceptible to ailments such as headaches, digestive issues, heart disease and cancer.
It’s time to put the spotlight back on how we talk to ourselves, talk to others and relate to the world around us. Communication is our primary tool for creating relationship, our deepest and most profound way to connect to the world.
