Overview

Mind/Body Health: The Effects of Attitudes, Emotions, and Relationships, Third Edition details the latest scientific findings regarding the relationship between the mind and body, and discusses how attitudes and emotions directly affect physical health and well-being. Written by an interdisciplinary team of authors, including a professional health educator who is deeply involved in Mind/Body research and an MD/Internist who specializes in Mind/Body practices, this text details current global findings on the relationship between the mind, body, and health. The authors show that negative emotions such as anger, depression, and anxiety can adversely affect physical health while positive emotions such as humor and optimism can serve to improve health and increase longevity. Relationships between physical health and spirituality, attitude, medicine, and various social factors are explored. The authors stress the importance of health choices and lifestyle factors on overall health and well-being, while laying groundwork for continued research in Mind/Body medicine in the 21st century. New to this edition is a chapter on the role nutrition plays in emotional, mental, and physical health.
