The Positive Mind Clinic focuses on a Holistic approach to Mind Matters because Mind Matters become Body Matters and all Body Matters need to be treated in a Holistic manner.
When there is an incongruence between the conscious and subconscious mind, Stress is created within the body, which in turn creates disease within the entire physical, emotional and spiritual bodies.
