Physical health, just like mental health, requires a balance between resources and demands. The biological correlate to psychological stress is inflammation, resulting from acute or chronic challenges to our natural and preferred state of being. These processes of physical and psychological stress, and our attempts at compensating for them, work not only in parallel, but also interweave with each other in obvious and sometimes subtle ways. As I have explored more of these connections, it has become increasingly apparent to me that optimal psychic wellness cannot exist in the absence of physiologic wellness. It became a natural extension for me to return to a more fundamental exploration of the body, its biochemistry, and its interconnected systems
