    This post is exactly why I wish Therapists and doctors for mental health were more readily available to everyone. It’s so important.

    It really is fascinating to me how the mind and the body really play into each other. When I’m going through an bipolar episode or dealing with anxiety, my gastroparesis acts up. And when that acts up, I begin to get depressed, and it’s this frustrating, cyclic nightmare. But finding peace and calm in the mind can help so much throughout the rest of the body. Meditation, yoga, reading, and listening to certain kinds of music are all SO necessary in order for me to function in a healthier way. I’m glad you’re taking the time to note the scientific intricacies as well, since that’s helpful in order to be more educated!

      I love that medicine is finally becoming more accepting (in general) of treating the entire body rather than surmising it’s only one specific issue. Not only that – but when we’re mentally not in a healthy place, we’re less likely to want to seek treatment for whatever is ailing us.. which again feeds that cyclic nightmare and fuels the flame.
