Scientists have now identified chemical messengers within the immune system called cytokines, which are relaying messages from the body to brain. This is defined as Bodymind. It is not just the brain that talks to the body. The body talks to the brain and the mind.


Neuroscientist Francisco Varela provides a scientific understanding of the psychosomatic body. 

Psychosomatic body 'It is the body's sense of self, of what belongs within it and what does not.'

Neuroscientist Francisco Varela defines the immune system as the "body's brain".'

'Immune cells travel in the bloodstream throughout the entire body, contacting virtually every other cell.'
