Science has now shown us that your body responds to the way you feel, think and act. There is a proven link between your emotions and physical health. This is often called the mind body connection. The mind body connection is about understanding how what you think and believe can cause certain biological changes to occur in your body. Such emotions as stress, anxiety and sadness have been linked to changes in the brain, heart, immune and other organ systems.
