Co-creating your holistic path
The Mind-Body-Medicine
of Michigan Methodology

Mind-Body-Medicine focuses on interactions between the brain, body, mind, and behavior. Emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experiential, and behavioral factors directly affect health. At Mind-Body-Medicine of Michigan, we focus on co-creating personalized health plans for individuals which address mindset, nutrition, movement, and lifestyle factors. 

Mindset

Thinking involves how we talk to ourselves. The human mind easily runs wild and our thoughts physically change the brain. The brain does not stop evolving and creating pathways until we die! Experts believe we think between 60,000 and 80,000 thoughts per day. Beyond formal meditation, self-regulating your thoughts and self-talk will change your life.

The gap between our stated goals and life intentions and our actions requires a mindset plan. Learn how to meditate, self-regulate, and develop a champions-mindset.

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."

-Buddha

Nutrition

We are mammals and require a specific nutrient load to function optimally. Regardless of what your health or life goals are, proper nutrition will empower or prevent you from moving forward.

 

Not all healthy foods are healthy for you. Supplementation and on-the-go consumer packaged goods, although potentially beneficial, are not replacements for proper nutrition.

 

We are the health of our cells. Our cells rely on and reflect our nutrition practices. Scrap diets, they don't work. Learn what foods work for you. 

 

We use lab testing, intuition, powerful discussion, and accessiblity to personalize an eating plan.

Movement

Individuals move for many reasons. Some create training programs for pursuing goals such as running a marathon or beating diabetes. Whatever your movement reason, it must be intrinsically motivated, move you towards goals, and should bring you joy.

 

Often, movement programs are ill-devised and cause the body harm, despite a feeling of effort and accomplishment. It is imperative that your movement practices are helping you achieve your health goals, not simply satisfying ego at the cost of bodily harm.

 

Fun fact: the body utilizes adipose tissue (body fat) as a fuel source at lower heart rate zones, and does not utilize fat as fuel during high intensity training.

 

Co-creation of a joyful, personalized, health promoting plan is possible on any schedule for any person. Movement is not about force, it's about flow. Mind-Body-Medicine of Michigan is an office space where we help plan your movement practices.

Intention, breathing, and form are critical in all movement practices.

Lifestyle

Take a moment and consider any holiday, family or friend celebration, or event you enjoy attending. What foods do you expect to be present?

Imagine a yoga class on Tuesday at 3pm or a retreat being offered this weekend, what would you have to change in order to attend?

It is undeniable that we live busy, hectic lives - which we created. In order to change, you will have to evaluate your schedule and priorities. Reviewing the how, who and what you allocate your resources to will help shift priorities and practices.

"Growth requires discomfort. Seek out and create calmness in your own discomfort."
