The Body/Mind:  What’s the Connection?

We live in a culture of chronic stress; work, family responsibilities, financial stress, the list can go on.  When we are in a constant state of stress, our brain chemistry, pain and overall mental and physical health is affected in a number of ways.   Stress has been said to be the root cause of 95% of health issues.

We don’t always have power over our circumstances, so how can we do anything about chronic stress?   Enter Brain Tap!

In 20 relaxing minutes a day you can get the same benefits that thousands of Dr. Patrick Porter’s clinical clients have seen over the last three decades. These users regularly report that BrainTap:
  • Reduces or eliminates brain fog and negative mind chatter
  • Helps increase energy
  • Promoted relaxation, which contributes to Healthy Sleep Habits
  • Reduced unwanted habits and behaviors
  • Enhanced productivity, memory, focus and creativity
  • Improved quality of life
Whether you want to overcome stress eating, conquer a bad habit, instill a positive mindset, advance your career, master a sport, enhance learning, improve creativity, get your body super fit or simply regain your health and vitality, come to Brookside Holistic Solutions and get a session!  There are dozens of options to choose from that will cater to every need.
You Can Think Yourself Sick
Psychology Today stated, “The literature has demonstrated again and again that thoughts affect neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers that allow the brain to communicate with different parts of itself and the nervous system. Neurotransmitters control virtually all of the body’s functions, from feeling happy to modulating hormones to dealing with stress. Therefore, our thoughts influence our bodies directly because the body interprets the messages coming from the brain to prepare us for whatever is expected.

While the placebo effect demonstrates the power of positive thinking, expectation, hope, and nurturing care, the nocebo effect demonstrates the physiological effects of negative belief, fear, anxiety … These negative emotions trigger the brain to send out a red alert that activates the “fight-or-flight” stress response. When the nervous system is in “fight-or-flight,” the body’s self-repair mechanisms don’t function properly and the body is predisposed to illness.”

On the Flip Side

The opposite is also true.  If we are eating a poor diet of bad fats, hormone and antibiotic infested meats, GMO vegetables, processed foods, etc, this can also impact our mind and body’s health.  Most aren’t aware that we actually produce neurotransmitters in the gut as well as the brain.  Our eating habits and digestion plays a large role in our mental health.

In Short

Balance your brain, balance your life!  Brookside Holistic Solutions offers a variety of natural methods and products that can do just that!
