The Following Concepts are


Commonly Accepted in
Mainstream Medical Circles :
1. An individual is inherently capable of
controlling his or her own physiological
processes to a greater degree than ever
before thought possible.
2. Healing always involves both mind and
body as well as what many call the spirit.
3. Negative emotions can have adverse
psychophysiological effects.
4. Positive emotions can have positive
psychophysiological effects.
5. The mind has many avenues of contact with
bodily processes, some of which can "tip
the scales" toward healing.
