Rise Above will help you to overcome the conflict between the facts in your head and the feelings in your heart.

    3. Physical Discouragement - Our brains are the organ of thought, action, personality, and feeling. They help to determine our choices, behaviors, and attitudes, as well as how we relate to others. They are an extremely important part of our lives, yet we rarely consider what they need in order to develop spiritual and emotional well-being. Rise Above will examine topics such as: Food and behavior, blood sugar levels, serotonin and beta-endorphins, the importance of sleep, food intolerance, dehydration and much more!
