Researcher Kevin Tracy has discovered a key mind/body link which explains why meditation and biofeedback works?why you can sometimes "think" yourself to health. He recently gave a paper on his discoveries at a conference honoring the Dalai Lama.
Through years of research on the immune system's response to injury, Dr. Tracey has discovered foundation for the mind-body connection, as it provides a direct link between the nervous system and the immune system. His discovery that the brain controls the immune system through the vagus nerve?the largest nerve in the body that wanders through the major organs?has gotten the attention of both Western scientists and Eastern mystics. Because vagus nerve activity can be measured, researchers now have a way to scientifically test the effects of many ancient concepts and Indo-Tibetan practices such as meditation and yoga on health and longevity.
