WELLNESS is the harmony between mind, body. and spirit. When the mind, body, and spirit are not fully whole, how can the body be fully well? Spiritual practices, offer interventions separate from their spiritual tradition, that effect our psychological and physical well-being. The mind and body are linked. How you feel emotionally can determine how you feel physically. Certain emotions release hormones into the physical body that, in turn, can trigger the development of a host of diseases. Researchers have directly and scientifically linked emotions to hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diseases related to the immune system. Studies have also highly correlated emotions with infections, allergies, and autoimmune diseases. Specifically, research has linked emotions such as depression to an increased risk in developing cancer and heart disease.
