As nurses we sometimes feel like we have an excellent grasp of what causes dis-ease, but there is a lot we don’t understand about how our bodies handle stress. Any small business owner is prone to stress.

I want to share details about something I think is important for every LNC to understand – how your mind and body interrelate to keep you healthy- or sick.


Kay Rice challenges assumptions about Western medicine and presents a different model of thinking: mind-body medicine. She asks us to think about medical care in a way that will help you realize

  • why “a pill for every ill” could harm you
    • how Western medicine and Ayuvedic medicine differ
    • the basis of mind-body medicine and how that can help you
    • how you can help your body fight disease
    • the impact of stress on the body
    • how you can harness your body’s intelligence to create better balance in your life
