Science Warms to the Mind-Body Connection

Just heard a fascinating episode of Speaking of Faith on NPR. A biochemist talks about her research into the link between stress, emotions and health. It's exciting that neuroscience and molecular biology have advanced to the point where they can start to "see" emotions and thoughts as they travel through the body. The link between stress and the immune system has become undeniable. As the mind-body connection becomes more widely accepted in scientific/medical circles, the case for bringing yoga and meditation into schools/hospitals/businesses/government will become irresistible! A glimmer of hope for the future of humanity in these chaotic times.
