Current Medical Findings…

According to the Art of Living Foundation research , “Mounting scientific research continues to suggest that health, quality of life and even the very length of life, are all profoundly affected by our mental and emotional states. The emerging field  of mind/body medicine explains how our thoughts and emotions  can powerfully affect brain, endocrine (hormone) and immune  system function. This influence is facilitated by chemical messengers called neuropeptides, which are released with every emotion. They are rapidly picked up by cells in the immune, endocrine and autonomic nervous system and directly affect the functioning of these systems.”
