New science behind the mind-body connection has huge implications on how we can transform our bodies and our lives.
Dr. Candace Pert a neuroscientist and psychopharmacologist and the author of the groundbreaking book, Molecules of Emotion http://amzn.to/INapak has forever changed the way we approach wellness and lasting transformation.
Dr. Pert has discovered messenger molecules called neuropeptides (once believed to be only in the brain) all over the human body. What we now know is your body “hears” and reacts to what your mind says and vise versa.
She writes, ” All systems of the body exchange neuropeptide information and it is the internal feeling state (emotions) that elicits the neuropeptide response. This is the mind-body connection in which every change in the mental-emotional state causes a change in body physiology. Likewise every change in the body physiology causes a change in the mental-emotional state.”
Take away: Every positive thought, empowered action or loving feeling contributes to your health and wellness on a cellular level. Everything counts!
