About Tucker Health
The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.
Tucker Health was created to promote the emerging benefits of a proactive, wellness-based model of health.
Tucker Health capitalizes on the benefits of focused nutritional education, as well as counseling to leverage the power of thoughts and emotions to influence physical health.
Much of this approach can be classified as mind-body medicine, and it dates as far as back as the great Greek healer Hippocrates who wrote, “The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” Mind-body health focuses on the interactions among the brain, the rest of the body, the mind, and behavior, that is, the ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experiential, and behavioral factors can directly affect health.
Clinical evidence suggests that mind-body therapies can reduce psychological stress and improve functional outcomes in a variety of illness states across cardiology, oncology, immunity, autoimmune disorders, and psychiatric conditions.
Numerous studies document that psychological stress is linked to a variety of health problems, such as increased heart disease, compromised immune system functioning, and premature cellular and cognitive aging.
Additionally, individual patient expectations and patient-provider interactions may produce biological effects that play a role in health outcomes. Obesity, pre-diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome are increasingly common conditions that increase risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and dementia.
Programs that combine mindfulness meditation, “mindful eating,” walking, and targeted exercise may help to improve and reverse these conditions.
