Health is more than diet and exercise... how you live, what you think, your attitude and how you respond to stress are equally important.
Emotional stress is the primary way that the mind affects the body. Unresolved and suppressed feelings create significant stress, adding to the toxic load caused by physical disfunction and harmful nutrition, and tips the scales over the top.
