The body refers to the physical structure and the various organs in the body.
Modern medication is generally focussed on the physical body as the source of disease.
The other important aspect is the mind.
The mind relates to the psychological (e.g. emotion, memory, thought, perception, imagination) and intellectual aspects of our being.
“Mind” problems refer to illnesses with a psychological cause, such as anxiety and depression.
It is now increasingly realised that in treatment body and mind cannot be separated.
The body affects the mind. Constant physical discomfort or ailments such as headache can affect a person’s mood or thinking, causing him or her to become anxious or depressed.
The mind affects the body. It means feelings and emotions affect physical health. When one is under pressure, abdominal pain may increase and headache occurs. When one is afraid, the heart beats faster and body sweats profusely. This is because the state of mind signals the body to release the hormone adrenaline, which is responsible for those symptoms.
Keep the body and mind healthy, we will be healthy.
