Building Healthy Families - From the newborn infant to the hospice patient at death’s door and all of us in between, the physical touch of another person is critically important. Even when they receive nourishment, infants who aren’t touched die from Failure to Thrive Syndrome. For adults, physical touch can reduce anxiety and lower blood pressure. In today’s crazy, fearful and politically correct world, we avoid the touch we need more than ever before. How long has it been since you held another person’s hand, placed your arm around someone’s shoulder or given or received a big bear hug?   Lutheran Family Services
