The Role of Mind-Body Health in the Development of and Integrative Health Care System

ROBERT ABOULACHE


1993 CONFERENCE PAPER


Abstract:

The foundation of this paper rests upon the latest developments in the fields of mind-body medicine, psycho-neuro-immunology and health promotion. Research strongly suggests the existence of an interactive system which unites the human inner environment (psychological, neurological, immunological, endocrine and bio-chemical) with the external one (psycho-social and physical environment). The data indicates that mind-body interactions are at the root of both health and disease, and that behavioral interventions have at least as much proof of healing effectiveness as many bio-medical treatments. Inquiry into the practical implications for integrating the mind-body model into our current medical, educational and cultural environments will be explored.
