The connection between your Spirit, mind, and body is a fascinating and complex relationship. Both people and animals experience physical responses to traumas and stress. If left unresolved, those physical responses can create chronic health concerns that diminish one’s quality and length of life.
Likewise, traumas and stress can be a result of a deterioration of physical health. This can add additional layers to your road to strong and stable emotional and mental health.
Whenever physical symptoms are present, it’s always a good idea to be evaluated by a medical doctor before pursuing non-medical forms of treatment. Even something seemingly as harmless as the development of chronic headaches or unexpected weight gain may be an indicator of a more serious health concern.
Ruling out medical causes can give non-medical practitioners the confidence to explore other potential sources of the issue. In addition, if you were to receive a diagnosis, this too can be incredibly helpful in our determination of how to best proceed and support you or the treatment programs in which you may be involved.
By looking at your overall health care from a holistic lens (that is… involving experts in a variety of health and wellness areas), you can be better equipped to
- Prevent illness and disease
- Improve concentration and focus
- Help to reduce stress and tension in your body
