The National Center for Biotechnology Information defines psychosomatic disease as an illness that has been caused by a person's mental processes. In this issue, we explore how your state-of-mind affects your physical health.*

Psychosomatic Disease: The Mindbody Connection

by D. Graeme Shaw, M.D.Dr. Graeme Shaw
 "As an internist, I'm fascinated by the cause of disease. Just as every crime mystery has a perpetrator, every disease has a cause. The closer you get in identifying the cause of disease, the more effective the treatment. One axiom I follow is that the further away the target of our treatment is from the actual cause of the disease, the more difficult and stronger the treatment must be in order to be effective. And the corollary is that the closer the treatment is to the cause, the easier it can be to create an effective treatment," says D. Graeme Shaw, M.D. In his fascinating article Psychosomatic disease: the mindbody connection,Dr. Shaw reviews recent research confirming that state-of-mind has an affect on physical health, and how overall healing comes from self awareness.*

Laughter Really is "The Best Medicine"Laughing Children

Here at Get Well Natural, we're big fans of a good laugh. According to, laughter dissipates stress hormones like cortisol, epinephrine and dopamine. It takes the focus away from any negativity that might be consuming your emotions. This may be why we feel a sense of physical release after a good laugh. The Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor says, ". . . playful discovery, expression or appreciation of the absurdity or incongruity of life's situations . . . may enhance health or be used as a complementary treatment of illness to facilitate healing or coping." And WebMD advises that laughter may be just the boost your body needs. Recent findings indicate that humor may increase the level of infection-fighting antibodies and immune cells in the body.*

"As you walk, take in all the colors, textures, and fragrances. By the end of your walk you should feel better." No room for a garden?  Apartment Therapy and Oh My Apartment show how to grow vegetables in small spaces. If you don't have a green thumb, try these popular stress-relievers:
