Both Fern Langham and Sarah Anne Stewart left high-impact,

Why Meditation Works: The Mind-Body Connection
Today, as holistic health and wellness entrepreneurs and
business partners, we deeply understand how the mind-body connection works by

healing, especially when coupled with other mind-body therapies and practices.
This is very important when healing an internal condition such as thyroid
dysfunction, an autoimmune disease, or even cancer. Just as a house will fall
to the ground without its foundation, your body can often become chronically
sick without a mind focused on health and happiness.
