HEALING WITHIN: How Your State of Mind Can Promote Health and Healing
*Winner! Award of Excellence, First Place - National Health Information
Stress can come from a variety of places: work, school, home, family. A build up can affect the body and be the onset to serious illnesses. Today, researchers are developing an innovative and holistic approach to combat stress. Meditation and relaxation techniques increase the emission of alpha waves by the brain and trigger a series of reactions that sooth the body. These techniques have helped patients rediscover their confidence, their identity, and their livelihood while bringing them a newfound energy to confront the illness face to face. In this program, five patients share their stories - each an emotional battle for survival.
