Thank you for tuning in for another episode of Life’s Best Medicine. Dr. Brian Lenzkes is joined by two special guests on today’s episode—his wife, Lanell Lenzkes, and marriage therapist, Dovid Feldman. Dovid started his career as a computer/technical entrepreneur but switched career paths later in life in order to help people have successful, healthy marriage relationships. Dovid is a licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a licensed Professional Counselor. He earned his masters degree in Counselor Education from Northeastern Illinois University and earned a BA in Sociology from Grinnell College. Just as it is with physical well-being, there are general guiding principals for maintaining a healthy marriage relationship. Why do people fall out of love or become bitter toward their partner? Dovid says that the number one reason is lack of gratitude. Therefore, one of the most important things Dovid helps his patients with is learning to appreciate their spouse. In addition to hearing from Dovid about his methods and experiences working with couples, Lanell and Brian discuss their own relationship in light of the principles Dovid brings up. Along the way, the trio discusses love languages, the differences between dating and marriage relationships, eliminating negativity (disrespectful speech, criticism, etc), others-centered action, and building a mindset and environment of positivity.
