Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI)

Psychoneuroimmunology, often referred to as PNI, is the union of medical disciplines that have long been isolated in western conventional medicine: Psychology, Neurology and Immunology.

The field of PNI explores how a person’s emotional and mental state contributes to illness and disease, or health and vitality in the body.

Based on the philosophy of physicians dating back to the ancient Greeks, Psychoneuroimmunology is the study of the relationship between a person’s perception of the world around them, their behaviour, the way their brain functions and the combined impact of these factors on the endocrine and immune systems.

PNI takes a holistic approach...

by investigating the biological, psychological and social factors that contribute to any illness and disease. All of the systems in the body are in constant communication with each other, and by identifying the impact that stress, anxiety, family issues and other social factors are having on our emotional and mental state, through PNI, we can also identify the impact that these situations are having on our body. With the understanding of both the physical symptoms as well as the emotional factors, we are able to support in addressing the condition at the root cause and provide the opportunity for true and lasting healing to occur.

PNI is not a modality unto itself, but is a field of scientific research that informs diagnosis of a condition and the course of treatment that is recommended to support you on every level – whether this be one or a combination of Natural Medicine, Nutritional Medicine, Orthomolecular Medicine, Holistic Sports Medicine, and/or Musculoskeletal Therapy.
