- How can you juggle stress without giving up your job?
- How do you master your body with your mind?
- What helps you heal your body of disease?
The answer to all these questions is mind-body medicine.
Mind-body medicine helps you to feel more vital, gives you more energy, and allows you to do more in less time with only the investment of time.
At least 80% of all diseases are due to underlying stress. The use of millennia-old mind-body medicine practices such as meditation, yoga, and prayer can be effectively used as powerful therapies to elicit relaxation.
Relaxation practice has been shown to reduce physiological and/or behavioral disorders such as hypertension, anxiety, insomnia, and aging.
Studies indicate that cultivating a relaxation practice may alter gene expression with relationship to:
- Energy metabolism
- Mitochondrial function
- Insulin secretion
- Telomere maintenance
- Stress response
Dr. Deanna Minich will define mind-body medicine, discuss the various modalities, and describe the science of how mind-body medicine works on the brain, heart, and gut.
The presentation is informational, but can be tailored to be experiential, for both professionals and individuals.
