What is mind body medicine?
Emerging research supports the idea that your mind and body are deeply connected. For many people, the root of a physical problem originates in the mind. By balancing and integrating your mind, body, and spirit, you’ll live at your highest health potential and thrive.
Sometimes called holistic healing, mind body medicine is a centuries-old practice that addresses the mental, social, spiritual, physical, and behavioral factors that affect your health and wellness. Because of the intricate connection of your mind and your body, the way you think and believe contributes to the development of disease. For instance, unresolved pain can permeate your entire system and cause depression, anger, or anxiety that disrupt your physical body.
The team at Renewed Medical Center is passionate about total mind body medicine. They bridge the gap of between your body and your mind to maximize your healing.
