The Mind-Body Connection in a Clinical Setting

The Mind-Body Connection in a Clinical Setting

by Robin Foroutan and Stephanie Mandel November 16, 2017

At The Morrison Center, we recognize that the mind-body connection can deeply influence health and wellness. In Dr.Morrison’s latest video, he explains the relationship between stress, emotions, illness, and wellness and the role of mind-body healing in a clinical setting.

When a person has a chronic condition, such as persistent symptoms related to postpartum depression, anxiety, fatigue, or chronic pain that may not be getting better, we acknowledge that it is worth considering whether stress, emotions, or past traumas may be playing a role. The integrative physicians at The Morrison Center always consider the mind-body connection when evaluating a person’s overall health, and when healing is stalled or “blocked,” we consider the role of stress, emotions and beliefs.

The top questions to ask yourself before taking vitamins

The top questions to ask yourself before taking vitamins

by Stephanie Mandel and Robin Foroutan June 19, 2017

We know that vitamins and minerals are important, and nutrient deficiencies are rare, so are vitamin and mineral supplements necessary? If you’ve followed recent highly publicised research, there’s been a resounding NO of late. But does that conclusion follow the science?

In study after study, researchers and medical professionals acknowledge the biological need for vitamins and minerals, and the lack thereof in the diets of most Americans. And yet, they conclude that since deficiencies are rare nowadays, there is no real need for a vitamin or mineral supplement. Taking a closer look reveals a major flaw in this commonly held rationale.
