    Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone has a fun Memorial Day weekend planned with family and friends!

    If you have an hour to spare this weekend, watch this video. It is a lecture we were required to listen to in my nutrition class this week and I found it so very interesting. It is about healing and preventative medicine using the mind to heal the body and vice-versa. I’m sure many of you have heard stories of cancer patients surviving because of his/her positivity and mental dedication to healing oneself.

    Dr. Kevin Barrows is a physician at UCSF and works with mind body medicine (MBM). This type of medicine believes in “self-efficacy” – that you can affect your situation, particularly through the mind. REALLY interesting discussion and Dr. Barrows is such a down-to-earth and humble speaker. Keep in mind he has a VERY soothing voice and it IS a long talk, so you may just fall asleep… particularly during the meditation session that he performs LOL.

    I hope you find this talk as enlightening as I did :) .
