Mindset, thoughts, feelings, mood, dreams, the soul, the spirit; these are all things I talk about with my patients because they are an integral part of health. The mind is powerful - you can have powerful thoughts and images that create body pain (eg. psychosomatic pain) and you can also have bacteria and viral infections that can affect the mental state (such as anxiety).
All the symptoms you feel are valid, nothing in health happens in isolation from other systems in your body.
I have patients apolgize for crying in my office; and I'm like Girl stop apologizing!! Let it out! Better out than in! lol. But seriously, release of emotion can be therapeutic, having some listen to your story is therapeutic, it can help you figure out your symptoms and lead you to the cause of those symptoms and no matter what it is, it all matters. Because you matter and your unique story matters. #bellletstalk
