the connectionThe Connection: Mind Your Body is a feature documentary revealing the ground breaking research by world leading experts in mind body medicine and true stories of recovery.

There is a 1:2 chance that you will develop a chronic illness during your lifetime. The Connection: Mind your Body explores the science behind the mind-body connection and its impact on health and wellness and includes perspectives from leading doctors and researchers in the medical field.

“For hundreds of years, Western medicine has looked at mind and body as totally separate entities, to the point where saying something ‘is all in your head’ implied that it was imaginary. Now we’ve found how changing the activity of the mind can alter the way basic genetic instructions are implemented.”
Herbert Benson MD, Harvard Medical School

The film features scientists, researchers, writers and doctors, as well as remarkable true stories of people adding mind body medicine to their healing toolkit to recover from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis. While the science is complex, the solutions for people suffering with illness are astonishingly simple.

The film shows that we can counter the harmful affects of stress with an equally powerful relaxation response triggered through specific techniques such as meditation. It shows that emotions can impact the course of an illness for better or for worse and could even be the difference between life and death.

The film explains the mechanisms behind belief, which scientists now know contributes 30 to 50 percent of the effect of any known biological cure and explores how scientists at the cutting edge are now learning that the mind can even influence the expression of genes and the rate at which we age.

This is a film for people who have tried everything. It offers answers and proves that you can change your mind, change your health and change your life.
