Carrying unresolved traumatic experiences or distressing memories from the past or present causes blockages in the body's cellular communication pathways.    This can result in a compromised immune system, physical problems and emotional unrest.

Certain organs are sensitive to specific emotional states (E.g. Nervousness shows up as "butterflies" in the stomach; fear affects the bowel);

Emotional (and physical) stress affects hormone production.   By creating energy disturbances that upset neuro-hormonal pathways and block energy flow between cells;

 Having stronger social relationships predicts a 50% increased likelihood of survival, consistent across age, sex, initial health status, cause of death and follow-up period!

Another meta-review of 70 studies from 1980 to 2014 (involving 3.4 million people from N. America, Europe, Asia and Australia), Holt-Lunstad and her team found that loneliness, social isolation, and living alone all increased likelihood of mortality ~29, 26, and 32% respectively. The researchers also mentioned that:

"Affluent nations have the highest rates of individuals living alone since census data collection began and also likely have the highest rates in human history, with those rates projected to increase,"

In the U.S., 28% of households have just one person living in them
