How is the mind-body connection explained?
It means that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning. In other words, our minds can affect how healthy, or ill, our bodies are each day.
On the other hand, what we do with our physical body (what we eat, how much we exercise, even our posture and breathing) can impact our mental state (again positively or negatively). This results in a complex interrelationship between our minds and bodies. Some would argue there is no “connection”. It’s all the same. It’s all one. It’s just “us”.
Attitudes, beliefs and emotional states ranging from love and compassion to fear and anger can trigger chain reactions that affect blood chemistry, heart rate, blood pressure and the activity of every cell and organ in the body from the stomach and digestive tract to the immune system.
Emotions can also affect your body’s reaction to stresses and strains, which can cause head and backaches and other physical problems. For example, if you really feel you are carrying the “weight of the world on your shoulders” your low back can begin to hurt.
How do your thoughts and feelings affect your health?
Your brain produces substances that can improve your health. These substances include endorphins, which are natural painkillers, and gamma globulin, which strengthens your immune system.
Extensive research shows that what your brain produces depends – in part – on your thoughts, feelings, and expectations. If you’re sick, but you have hope and a positive attitude, and you believe that you’ll get better, your brain is far more likely to produce chemicals that will boost your body’s healing power. As a result you get better more quickly. A large premise of this course is to optimize these processes.
As an example, during a panic attack, your body experiences surges in adrenaline, cortisol, and immune-system activity. That’s a combustible mix for the heart. If that arousal happens too often (people with the worst forms of the disorder can have attacks several times a day), it can cause the heart to beat erratically, increasing heart attack risk. Indeed, one study showed that people with panic disorder (about 3% of American adults, twice as many women as men) face a 47% higher risk for heart disease.
To counter this type of feeling, you can also become qualified to teach your clients stress management techniques and yoga as well.

Results we have
Learning life coaching at the Spencer Institute has been a great way for me to increase my business base. I really liked that I could work full time while learning life coaching on my own time schedule. Not only do I now have coaching clients, but I also attract more psychotherapy clients who choose me because I can do coaching in addition to psychotherapy.
The Spencer Institute Coaching programs are informative while being exciting and cutting edge. Their variety of approaches to coaching holistically keeps my business fresh and me coming back for more.
I am a lifelong learner, and firmly believe no matter how much we know, we can always discover more!! My brother told me about Spencer Institute, and I thank him because it really amped up my skills in coaching clients. Being a busy mom, I absolutely loved the distance learning since it fits with my hectic schedule, and I was able to do the courses at my own pace!
I completed the personal fitness chef, fitness nutrition coach and kid’s nutrition specialist programs (some from NESTA) and I am so glad that I did. Most recently, I’ve been giving talks on healthy snacking to children and I am finding that it complements my cooking schedule. It’s a nice complement to the work I do in the kitchen. I just wanted to say thanks!
