How Your Thoughts Affect Your Body Health w/ Dr. Elizabeth Hughes
Show Notes

Dr. Elizabeth Hughes is a Stanford-trained physician with more than 25 years of clinical
experience, , a certified yoga instructor, and an advanced PSYCH-K facilitator. For most of her career she believed that conventional medicine was the only effective method of treating illness and injury. Her perspective was radically changed after a patient was cured of a chronic, “incurable” condition with a simple change in belief.

In this episode of the Awake and Thriving Podcast, Dr. Elizabeth shares how she helps her patients change their beliefs towards their health and transform their bodies. She talks about how stress affects different body organs in different people but is usually first noticed by patient when skin issues develop. 

Listen in to learn how you can align your emotions with your thoughts to be at the best of your health. You will also hear about all the resources that Dr. Elizabeth utilized when bridging from conventional medicine and how you can too.
