Lifestyle counseling involves adjusting factors of daily living such as exercise, sleep, stress, work, and play.  The mind-body connection is an important component of health which has been gaining research attention and has been developed into a branch of science called psychoneuroimmunology.  It is an interdisciplinary approach that studies how psychological processes impact the nervous and immune systems; in essence, it is how our thoughts and beliefs affect our health.  Naturopathic medicine considers this an important aspect of one’s health care, and  Dr. Elliott believes your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes play a major role in your physical and psychological wellbeing.  The mind is a powerful tool to enhance health!
