Loneliness is a universal human experience, and it has become increasingly prevalent in our modern world. A recent survey showed that over 60% of Americans feel lonely, and this is not just a problem in the United States. People all over the world are struggling with feelings of isolation and disconnection. This loneliness epidemic is not just an emotional issue; it has serious health consequences. In this blog post, we will explore the loneliness epidemic and provide practical tips for overcoming isolation and improving your health.

What is the loneliness epidemic?

The loneliness epidemic refers to the widespread feeling of loneliness and disconnection that is prevalent in our modern society. Despite being more connected than ever through technology and social media, people are struggling to form meaningful connections with others. This is due in part to the breakdown of traditional social structures like families and communities. Many people now live far away from their families and do not have close relationships with their neighbors. Additionally, people are working longer hours and spending more time alone than ever before.

Why is loneliness a problem?

Loneliness is not just an emotional issue; it has serious health consequences. Studies have shown that chronic loneliness can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic illnesses. It can also weaken the immune system, making people more susceptible to illness. Loneliness can also have a negative impact on mental health, leading to depression and anxiety.

How to overcome loneliness

Overcoming loneliness is not always easy, but it is possible. Here are some practical tips for improving your social connections and reducing feelings of isolation:

  1. Join a club or group: Joining a club or group that interests you is a great way to meet like-minded people and form new friendships. Whether it's a book club, a hiking group, or a cooking class, find something that you enjoy and get involved.

  2. Volunteer: Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and give back to your community. Whether it's at a local shelter, hospital, or food bank, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved and make a difference.

  3. Take a class: Taking a class is not only a great way to learn something new, but it's also a great way to meet new people. Whether it's a language class, a cooking class, or a dance class, find something that interests you and sign up.

  4. Connect with old friends: Sometimes, we lose touch with old friends as we get older. Reach out to old friends and try to rekindle those relationships.

  5. Use technology wisely: While technology can be a source of isolation, it can also be a tool for connection. Use social media and other online platforms to connect with friends and family who live far away.

  6. Seek professional help: If you are struggling with loneliness, it may be helpful to seek professional help. A therapist or counselor can provide you with the tools and support you need to overcome feelings of isolation and improve your mental health.


The loneliness epidemic is a real problem that is affecting people all over the world. It's important to recognize the impact that loneliness can have on our physical and mental health and take steps to overcome it. Whether it's joining a club or group, volunteering, taking a class, or seeking professional help, there are plenty of ways to form meaningful connections with others and reduce feelings of isolation. By taking action to overcome loneliness, you can improve your health and well-being and live a more fulfilling life.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.

Release & Transmute: Emotional Healing Session

In this active participation session, we will work through personal emotional blockages using a series of practices including meditation, sound, breathwork and visualisation to identify, acknowledge, feel and release these emotions.

This session is open to all and particularly those who feel that they have unresolved trauma that they would like to address.

This is a space to take healing into your own hands and shift traumatic energy and transform it into new experiences that bring forth positive life changes and improved mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.

The session is multi-sensory to enable participants to access various aspects of their being to draw out cellular memories of these past events to confront and manage them better moving forward.

You will need:

  • A private space where you can lie or sit up and relax comfortably
  • A note pad to journal your experiences and emotions
  • A blindfold/eye cover
  • Your camera will need to be on
  • If you wish you can have candles and incense of your choice for your personal space

Ancestral Voices Co-founder Verona Spence-Adofo launched the Release & Transmute: Emotional Healing Sessions to the public this year. It is a series of techniques she has used in her private consultations to great effect to assist in overcoming blockages we put up to deal with past uncomfortable experiences.
Drawn from her knowledge accumulated over 12 years of working with different healers and medicine people, a culmination of therapies she used on her own emotional blockages first and then successively on those who have used her services and gifts.
