The Mind Rules the Body

Approximately a hundred years ago, Franz Alexander MD taught what is now referred to as psychophysiology. He taught: “The fact that the mind rules the body is, in spite of its neglect by biology and medicine, the most fundamental fact which we know about the process of life.”

For this reason, all my teaching is now focused on empowering people to cultivate the mind-training skills that have the power to confer health and wellbeing. My book and course at College of Marin are my teaching vehicles.

This is the final segment of the fall 2014 presentation I gave at San Francisco State University.

The purpose of these videos and my website is to provide evidence-based information on how to live with self-care mastery. It is for all medical patients, caregivers, and advocates who want to learn how to collaborate with physicians to optimize the efficacy of your medical care.
