It is amazing how we try to compartmentalize our wellness...we take care of the body, but not the soul and wonder where we went wrong...

It'll take time to change the mindset of the body as mechanical, separate from the mind but it will come. There's been too many repeated studies proving mind-body medicine is here to stay.
Just like the validity of invisible bacteria being the cause of sepsis and some illnesses and diseases went through several stages of acceptance, after time it was accepted as medical and scientific 'fact' ...so will this. There's just too much research in the field to intelligently keep ignoring it.
I really appreciate the courageous ones doing the work and speaking the truth regardless of what their peers think of them and their work.
Thanks for the info.

This is an excellent article. The interviewer Amy Goodman skillfully elicits data from the Dr., so we may learn about about how the latest scientific research correlates with ayurvedic medicine. Thanks, Don!

"When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” Mr. Rogers

I didn't read the entire article, but I have always suspected it to be true just by watching people and their mentality throughout life. Some just never get sick and I think it is because of their mentality. Other's seem to suffer so much and yet their mentality is different. Of course that is not to say their mental outlook is the only factor in their health, but I believe it is a big one.

I am not denying myself anything; I am just choosing something different.

I can do it! I am worth it!

so true.....thanks for sharing........


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Below is a link to a interview with Gabor Mate, a Canadian physician who summarizes all the research and evidence pointing toward the direct connection between our emotions and our physical well-being.

www.alternet.org/story/149384

"Dr. Maté argues too many doctors seem to have forgotten what was once a commonplace assumption, that emotions are deeply implicated in both the development of illness, addictions and disorders, and in their healing."

There is much wisdom here which can be so helpful for ourselves and to pass along to our loved ones and the clients with whom we work!
