THE MIND-BODY CONNECTION

The human brain (mind)- body is like a machine. You have to take care of it for it to function efficiently.


I will discuss three parts in this article;

  1. The role brain chemicals and nutrition play in the functioning of our mind/body.

  2. How humans, such as, monks; can alter their mental state through energy frequencies and control their bodily functions, such as, temperature. (MIND CONTROL)

  3. Energy Healers (How they heal people physically through the power of their mind and using their energy)




What we;

  • Mentally think

  • Physically do with our body

  • Nutrients we consume (foods/drinks/supplements)

They all effect us simultaneously!


Our gut is often referred to as the "second brain." It is the only organ to control its own independent nervous system. More than 90% of serotonin is found in the gut. "Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness. This hormone impacts your entire body. It enables brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin also helps with sleeping, eating, and digestion."


Many clients who suffer from anxiety disorder are also known to have GI issues, such as; IBS or IBD.

Stress mentally effects us physically.


I am sure you have heard of the term - "Chemical Imbalance" when someone has a mental illness and their mood is "off." Well, that is exactly what is happening, the chemicals in our brain are imbalanced either too high or too low.


  • Serotonin - Serotonin is the key hormone that stabilizes our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness. This hormone impacts your entire body. It enables brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin also helps with sleeping, eating, and digestion.

Low levels of serotonin in the brain may cause depression, anxiety, and sleep trouble.

  • Dopamine - Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter. Your body makes it, and your nervous system uses it to send messages between nerve cells. That's why it's sometimes called a chemical messenger. Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. It's a big part of our unique human ability to think and plan. Dopamine plays an important role in numerous functions, including motivation, reward, learning, movement, memory, and more.

Low levels of dopamine is linked to numerous ailments, including Parkinson's, schizophrenia, and addiction.

High levels of dopamine are linked to high libido, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, increased energy, mania, stress, and improved ability to focus and learn, among others.


  • Norepinephrine, also called Noradrenaline-Norepinephrine also called noradrenaline is both a hormone, produced by the adrenal glands, and a neurotransmitter, a chemical messenger which transmits signals across nerve endings in the body.

High levels of norepinephrine can lead to euphoria (very happy) feelings but are also linked to panic attacks, elevated blood pressure, and hyperactivity.

Low levels of norepinephrine can cause lethargy (lack of energy), lack of concentration, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and possibly depression.


But not only does our chemicals in our mind alter our mood and physical behavior. Nutrition plays an important role too.


Over time, eating foods without a lot of nutrients can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Nutrients important to a healthy mood include:

  • Folate.

  • Iron.

  • Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA).

  • Magnesium.

  • Potassium.

  • Selenium.

  • Thiamine.

  • Vitamin A.

  • Vitamin B6.

  • Vitamin B12.

  • Vitamin C.

  • Zinc.

Sugar is VERY toxic to our system and feeds diseases mentally and physically.


Many clients I see who suffer with mental health issues, do not realize that many of their underlying symptoms could be simply treated by altering their diet and natural supplements. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you get a full metabolic panel done from your primary doctor. Ask them to check not just what insurance typically covers or the general panel, but the more extensive panel that looks into your hormones, metals, nutritional deficiencies, etc.



Now, onto the MONKS! How do they do it? How do they possess mind control to alter their physical state of being? THAT IS THE MIND/BODY CONNECTION!


I cannot explain it as well as this article so read more here:


"How Tibetan Monks Use Meditation to Raise Their Body Temperature. ... The monks were using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, which allowed them to enter a state of deep meditation and significantly raise their body heat, some as much as 17 degrees (Fahrenheit) in their fingers and toes."


"EEG recordings of skilled Buddhist monks with years of training and chanting have shown a significant rise in gamma wave activity in the 80 – 120 Hz range while this effect was lower in new meditators."


"Monks live in the Himalayas where the temperature is very low. In the 80s, a professor and his research team went to remote monasteries in the Himalaya mountains in the 1980s to discover, decode and document the subtle ways through which the monks manipulate their bodies. In the monastery, thinly clad Tibetan monks sit quietly in a room where the temperature was a chilling 40 degrees Fahrenheit using a yoga technique known as tum mo. They entered a state of deep meditation. Other monks soaked three by six foot sheets in cold water which measure 49 degrees Fahrenheit and place them over the mediators shoulders. For untrained people, this would have frozen someone to death, but as a result of body heat produced through the monks during meditation. The sheets dried in about an hour."


It is through deep meditation and altered states of consciousness through changing brain wave frequencies, that we can tap into energy forces beyond our belief.


The Silva Method by Jose Silva is a method used for self healing and healing of others. In the book he speaks of healing a priest who was hospitalized, using visualization. If this topic interests you, research these energy healers;

  • Donna Eden

  • Jeffery Allen




There is a book called, The Body Keeps The Score" and it is one of the most informative and powerful books you can read to learn how the body hold trauma and due to that, it mentally and physically effects us.
