Mind-Body Medicine in Atlanta
Mind-Body Medicine, a component of Functional Medicine and other alternative medicines, focuses on the connection between the mind and the body and the measurable ways in which mental, emotional and spiritual factors directly affect one’s health. Perhaps the best illustration of holistic medicine at work, Mind-Body medicine teaches patients practical techniques to integrate into their daily lives which will empower them as they gain greater control of the body’s systems.
A Natural Medicine, not requiring pharmaceuticals, Mind-Body medicine has been scientifically proven to improve the health and well being of individuals. Studies show that its practice can help to reduce the stress which has been proven to cause or worsen many conditions. Chronic stress has been found to impact up to 80% of all illnesses.
At Atlanta Functional Medicine, we believe that self-care and awareness are integral to optimal health. Everything a person thinks, feels and perceives has an effect physically, mentally and emotionally. We can use our minds to affect the way our bodies work and we can use our bodies to affect our minds.
