Mind-Body Technique for Holistic Health in the Modern World

MindBody Technique for Holistic Health in the Modern World

Mind-body techniques for holistic health are becoming more widespread in the western world. We are seeing the adoption (or re-adoption) of many ancient eastern healing methods and the this resurgence of holistic health is empowering women and men alike to look at the body as an interconnected organism, rather than segmented as in western medicine.

The connection between the body and the mind, when strengthened, can have a positive cascade effect on the health of the entire body. Many ailments such as hormone imbalance, gastrointestinal issues, stress and anxiety, and even insomnia can be alleviated and eased with a strong mind-body connection and a consistent practice.

The power of the mind, when directed to the body, can truly make miracles happen. To gain more perspective on just how effective a strong mind-body connection is for our health, we spoke with Deborah Coady, MD, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Medical Center.

"The body is an interconnected organism - an ecosystem. By looking at it from a holistic perspective and integrating mind-body techniques and exercises into your routine, you can strengthen your healing power and reestablish homeostasis."

Dr. Coady is not only a chronic pain specialist, but she is also an avid practitioner of mind-body techniques which have helped her drastically alter her own health and better understand how the body operates as a single ecosystem. Through her personal and professional experience, she has realized that it is through honoring the body as a whole and consciously directing the energy of the mind that the greatest results can be realized.

There are many ailments, specific to women, that Dr. Coady has helped her patients (and herself) ease through consistent practice. These are just some of the ailments that can be eased through mind-body techniques.

Mind-Body Technique for Holistic Health

Belly Button Healing

This ancient form of abdominal acupressure has been used for millennia in eastern medicine. Belly Button Healing is a quick, one-step, self-healing method through naval stimulation and reactivation of inner healing power. Belly Button Healing works to stimulate the abdomen which has a physiological and energetic cascade effect to the entire body. The gut is known as the second brain and this is where life starts for humans.

How it heals: Belly Button Healing can help to regulate hormones, ease pain, relieve headaches (often associated with hormone imbalance), improve gastrointestinal issues, boost mood, and relieve stress and anxiety.

Just 3-5 minutes a few times a day can drastically strengthen the mind-body connection and reinvigorate the energy within the body. When our energy is flowing freely through our bodies, we can clear blockages, reestablish balance and reconnect our mental awareness to our physical bodies.

Belly Button Healing is Effective For...

Hormone Balance

The gut is responsible for producing 90% of our serotonin (the happiness hormone) and 50% of our dopamine (the joy hormone). There are also trillions of microbes in the gut and nerves that link directly to the brain. Because of this, our emotions can be more balanced and our mood can be visibly elevated from regular and mindful stimulation of the belly button.

Musculoskeletal Disorders

Gentle abdominal massaging induces the fascia and vagus nerve to kickstart the parasympathetic nervous system to relax muscles, which allows for natural pain relief in joints and muscles. This is greatly helpful for arthritis, osteoarthritis, joint degeneration and osteoporosis.

Blood Circulation

A fascinating study reported by the Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post shows the effectiveness of stimulating the abdomen to improve blood circulation. The gut holds one third of your entire body's blood supply. When we put pumping pressure on the abdomen through Belly Button Healing, it circulates the blood collected around your vital organs throughout the entire body from head to toe.

Gastrointestinal Issues

Belly Button Healing massages vital organs of the gastrointestinal tract, which can remove excess waste lodged in the ridges of the intestines acting as harmful toxins. Detoxifying the gut is the most crucial step in sustainably detoxifying the entire body from the inside out.

In addition to proper diet, plenty of water and an active lifestyle, alternative methods like Belly Button Healing can be a wonderful addition to help you heal naturally. While this method can only be used as a supplement, and is in no way meant to be considered a replacement for doctor prescribed medicine or treatments, we see that eastern and western medicine can coexist in our modern world.
