brain, mind, & body total functional health

WHAT IS TOTAL FUNCTIONAL HEALTH

Our entire being functions as a whole – brain, body and mind.  They each influence the other – the thoughts in our mind influence our body systems and our brain function, our body health and posture influence our thinking and our brain function and so forth. Total functional health and wellbeing arises when our mind is calm and focused, our body is in optimal physical health and fitness, and our brain is working at its highest level of effectiveness and efficiency.
