Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) an interdisciplinary field of study that started in 1975, studies the relationship between the immune, endocrine, and central/peripheral nervous systems.
A relatively new field of study that integrates these concepts in order to better understand the connections between thinking and physical health. ThinkTherapy.org is one source that has embraced this concept, focusing on the growth of our thoughts and the effect of how our nervous and immune systems interact with each other.
#ThinkTherapy recognizes that physical and mental states influence one another in many ways, and understanding how we think about ourselves and the world around us will ultimately affect our overall well-being. We explore how changes in behavior or attitude can have a direct effect on the functioning of both the nervous and the immune systems. In our philosophy, we focus on people making positive lifestyle changes. By promoting these two systems we can better regulate the stress that affects our bodies, minds and behaviors, thereby improving overall health outcomes.
