Omaha, NE (PRWEB) April 13, 2012
According to best-selling author of "Who Switched Off My Brain?" and Cognitive Neuroscientist, Dr. Caroline Leaf, “Eighty-seven to 95 percent of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life,” said Dr. Leaf. “What we think about affects us physically and emotionally. It's an epidemic of toxic emotions.” Dr. Leaf has researched the human brain for over 25 years with particular emphasis on unlocking its vast untapped potential. She is passionate about linking scientific brain research to Biblical principles in a simple and practical way.
Dr. Leaf will be the keynote presenter next at a medical seminar entitled “The Science of Thought” The goal of the seminar is to explore the science of thought and programs to help people to think, understand and use their brain properly and live healthier, de-toxed thought lives.” Dr. Leaf will cover: how thoughts form, the science of thought, epigenetics and the Geodesic information processing theory and how thoughts become toxic resulting in mental and physical illness. She will also introduce a thought detox program.
This seminar is designed especially for practitioners in the mental health field: nurses, therapists, techs, social workers and chaplains The seminar will run from 9 a.m.-NOON Friday, April 20th at Alegent Healthcare’s Lakeside Hospital in Omaha, NE.
