Health is Mind With Matter

The old saying goes “Mind over matter,”  however that isn’t always the case. The chemicals released in our brain when emotions happen, such as the happiness chemical serotonin, boosts our mood, increases productivity and gives us more energy. Oxytocin has a similar effect. This is attributed to certain chemical rushes in the body, such as adrenalin. If there is a lack of these boosting hormones, it can cause your body to not function properly. We will dive into what other sources are creating the issue and try to correct
