Joan Borysenko: Healing begins by taking your power back

"You’re not a victim of illness or of life"

Joan Borysenko, a renowned speaker in integrative medicine and the mind/body connection, is a firm believer in mind over matter.

"Healing begins by taking your power back," she explains.

"You’re not a victim of illness or of life. When challenges arise they are opportunities for self-discovery, positive evolution, and the discovery of a part of you that has never been wounded. When you learn to connect with that part of yourself, the innate healing mechanisms of the body are engaged."

Joan, a licenced clinical psychologist, says that through daily gratitude practice, we can all realise inner peace. 

"Peace is our birthright and our true nature. It’s a matter of letting go of the stress of distraction, judgment, comparison, and worry," she says.

"One of the simplest ways to achieve this is through daily gratitude practice. Every night before bed, choose one thing you were grateful for during the day and focus on it. It’s that simple.

Joan has a doctorate in cellular biology from Harvard Medical School. She is also a New York Times best-selling author, journalist and radio personality. Her new book The PlantPlus Diet Solution is out now.
