Thoughts are so powerful that they can significantly alter the structure, function and chemistry of your brain.  Consequently, what you think can have a profound effect on your health, both physical and mental.  Just thinking about something, anything, causes your brain to release chemicals that communicate with your brain and the rest of your body. 

Changes to the chemistry in your brain can lead to changes in your sensory experiences, perceptions, beliefs and the ability to formulate and express thought, cognition, emotion and memories. 

Your thoughts can harm or heal your brain, impair or improve your mental health.
