Recognizing the connection between mental, physical and spiritual health can be beneficial to all of us. But especially to individuals experiencing extreme distress with mental health conditions, substance abuse or co-occurring disorders. While our minds and body are separate, they have influence over one another affecting how we feel overall. That’s why holistic healing is so important.
The Mind-Body Connection
A great example of the mind-body connection is how our mood is greatly affected when our physical health deteriorates. Members of the mind-body connection—our nervous, immune and endocrine systems—are constantly sending messages between each other through hormones and neurons, especially the ones that live directly in our gut. Faster than an eye blink, these neurons can communicate with our brains, using information directly sourced from our stomach.
Many illnesses that span the gap between medical and mental health exist, proving the direct connection between our body and mind. Here are some of the key conditions where our physical and psychological worlds collide:
- Heart Disease is correlated with panic disorder and depression.
- Psoriasis is nearly doubled in individuals with severe depression.
- Those who suffer from migraines are 2.5 times more likely to suffer from anxiety, and nearly one-third of those diagnosed with bipolar disorder suffer these intense headaches as well.
- Anxiety and depression nearly triple the risk for irritable bowel syndrome in women.
- Those who suffer from allergies are 72% more likely to feel depressed.
- Diagnosed schizophrenia indicates a doubled risk for diabetes.
Holistic Healing, Emotional Health and Recovery
Holistic medicine is a method of healing that focuses on the person as a whole, rather than just focusing on the physical, mental or spiritual side. Providers who focus on holistic healing combine all of those, focusing on each and recognizing the importance of all of these aspects. Holistic providers also aim to prevent health issues from ever developing by covering the health of the body, mind and spirit. The Ranch Tennessee aims to focus on all components of an individual to provide a strong and safe recovery.
