The Body as a Brain
On this episode, Dr. Gladden and Mark talk about how the brain-body connection impacts health. Dr. Gladden believes that people actually need to think of their body as a brain because the neurological system runs throughout the body.
The discuss the power of the brain in helping your body heal or possibly holding your body back. If you’re not treating the whole body, recovery from an injury or illness may be impeded because the whole system is out of balance. Behaviors and mindset play a major role in health, both in the positive and negative. In the reverse, problems in your body can affect the way your brain works as well.
They consider the mindset we need to overcome the sick care system we have, to try and restore ourselves to our peak health.
Dr. Gladden suggests things you can do to help retrain your brain, including meditation, transcranial direct stimulation and hypnosis.
