Balance Mind & Body is a Best of Health Online educational module to give you some background information on mind/body medicine. It does NOT offer instant cures. Just like exercise and nutrition, balancing the mind and body takes time, hard work, patience and commitment.

The skills that you learn in this module should be used alongside conventional medicine rather than as an "alternative" to conventional medicine. Talk to your physician and other health providers about this so the techniques can be in harmony with your standard medical treatment.

Please remember that information included in Best of Health Online is for your general knowledge only and is not intended as a substitute for the advice or care of medical professionals. Always consult your physician or other healthcare professionals for all personal health problems, and also before starting a new physical fitness program.
