Healthy Brain, Healthy Body.

With The Healthy Brain and Body Show coming up this weekend, almost all of my attention has been focused there. The idea for the show came to me a few years ago, when I realized the need for a show that highlights the interconnectedness between our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health.
