Homeostasis is the natural balance between all body functions. Hormones and neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that constantly renew this essential balance.

A basic knowledge of the most important transmitters can help to better understand the inter-relationship between body and mind.

Yoga and meditation are recognized methods for improving the production of many endogenous (the body’s own) messenger substances.


The course will present extracts in 4 languages from the book: “The Body’s own Drugs – free of side effects” by Josef Zehentbauer.
