FEELING BETTER: THE BODY AND MIND CONNECTION
THIS COURSE IS NOW CLOSED. SPRING SESSION REGISTRATION OPENS MARCH 31, 2019. COME BACK AND SEE US!
There are still openings remaining at this time.
Psychoneuroimmunology addresses the connections between the brain (mental, emotional) and physical pain or disease. The mind and the body are completely intertwined, and the evidence is clear that negative or positive thinking patterns have an impact on our physical health, both good and bad. For example, stressful thinking patterns can cause physical reactions (panic attacks, headaches, heart attacks, stomach issues, increased pain, slow healing, etc.), while focused, positively directed thought patterns can boost the immune system, promote healing, decrease pain, and in some cases, restore health.
This class will discuss examples of this dynamic and what you can do to improve your physical health by addressing your mental and emotional reactions to a negative health condition.
