Wellness comes from many areas of your life. It’s not just what you eat that makes you healthy or unhealthy. Together, we’ll achieve your goals in areas such as how you handle stress, how you move your body, what foods you are craving, how well do you sleep and how much energy would you like to have.
What is Mind-Body Medicine?
Mind-Body medicine focuses on the interactions between mind and body and the powerful ways in which emotional, mental, social and spiritual factors can directly relieve stress and improve health.
Up to 80% of all illnesses are related to chronic stress.
Thousands of studies published since 1960 demonstrate the efficacy of mind-body medicine techniques in lowering blood pressure and stress hormone levels, relieving pain and improving immune functioning, as well as improvements in clinical conditions such as HIV, cancer, insomnia, anxiety, depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Where is it used?
Mind-body medicine is used with individuals, groups, and entire populations. It is integrated in hospitals, medical schools, private practices, schools, and community health and trauma relief programs in the US and around the world.
Easy to learn and easy to teach, mind-body medicine skills are changing the lives of individuals and healing communities around the world. Our model is based on the approach provided by The Center for Mind Body Medicine.
Not sure what it means to be healthy?
Through working with me, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will help you get to the bottom of what’s really going on if you feel stuck or find yourself at a plateau. We won’t focus on calories or what you can’t eat, but I will guide you in discovering ways to improve your diet, avoid foods that are inflammatory to your body, and include foods that are nutrient-dense. We will work with calming the thoughts and mind chatter that keeps you from being clear on who you are and what you want to accomplish.
Ready for guidance on what will serve you the best?
I strive to understand the whole person, and we will focus on the importance of supplying your body with the best quality foods for growth and nourishment while providing the mind with guidance to develop mental skills that produce positive thoughts and feelings to keep the body in good communication and support.
So in truth… you are what you eat, and you are what you think!
