Do You Believe That The Mind Can Help In Healing?

Mind-Body Medicines
There is a belief that the mind has great healing capabilities that can help heal the body.  One complementary therapy that is highly effective is Meditation. Meditation is where one focuses on the breath or using Mantra which is a repetition of words or phrases to quiet the mind. Another therapy is Yoga

Restorative Yoga Therapy
Here I would like to mention Breast Cancer Yoga as a well defined restorative yoga therapy practice that supports healing. Stretching, strengthening all the while consciously using the breath in synch with the movements make the yoga very meditative. Other therapies offered as a CAM are guided visualization, biofeedback, massage, chiropractic care along with vitamins and herbs. A healthy diet is imperative for wellness for our energy levels and proper nutrition.
