Mind-Body Medicine with Dr. Archana Lal-Tabak

After a being misdiagnosed by thirty (30) doctors and experiencing side effects from the fourteen (14) medications, Dr. Archana Lal-Tabak took back her health and completely healed naturally.  Today she now helps others return to health using modern and ancient techniques.

We do not need to be a victim of our genes.  We are not powerless in changing our experience of life and health.  We have innate knowledge as to own healing capabilities.

Modern medicine and insurance separate us into parts when in truth all of our systems overlap and intertwine.  There is no separation between mind and body.  When we can begin to look at ourselves from an overall perspective, we can find healing not solely from medications but from changing nutrition, community involvement, detox, exercise, meditation, creativity, and a host of other options.  Our minds and bodies are continuously sending us messages.  By learning to hear and respond to these messages, we can find ways to make positive changes in our lives through lifestyle changes.  Instead of masking pain, there are ways to listen and learn from one’s discomfort in order to make long-lasting changes to the level of health we experience.

Listen to this powerful conversation about the Mind-Body Connection to learn about psychoneuroimmulogy and Indian Ayuveda, to learn how our gut and our heart receptors are providing as much insight into our health as our brains, and how we have the ability to go “beyond our genes” by affecting how our genes express themselves.

Dr. Archana Lal-Tabak and Melissa Heisler discuss new findings about ancient healing practices and how you can use these to take back your health.
