Want to know more about the Mind Body Approach?

I'm creating a series of blogs that I hope will be useful in explaining the cutting-edge science behind this approach. There are also many excellent texts and websites that give more information on the mind body approach. Here are a few that I have found particularly helpful. However, do look into this approach for yourself. It is identified under several different labels:
Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS)                 Mind-Body Syndrome (MBS)                 Psychophysiological Disorder (PPD)                Stress Illness
