Psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology (PNIE) is a holistic science that analyses all the systems of the human body.

This means that the entire human body is interrelated and that, for example, a person with emotional stress may develop muscle pain as a consequence (these pains are called psychosomatic pains).

Psychosomatic pain is already well known by the population but there are others interrelationships that are not so evident, for example the relationship that our intestine has with our state of mind, with inflammatory pains and with autoimmune diseases.

So, if a person has cervical pain for example, where can this pain come from? The healthcare professional has to assess it. But often the cause will be multifactorial (i.e. the majority of the pains have more than one cause).

In what order do I have to treat the different systems? First the musculoskeletal dysfunction or the endocrine or the psychological aspect….? Often, it’s appropriate to alternate different treatments. So, one day you can visit the physiotherapist, the next day the PNIE specialist (who will modify your diet) and the next day go to the psychologist…

The specialist in PNIE will use the scientific evidence, together with your analysis and clinical tests, to prescribe some dietary indications (or supplements) in order to correct dysfunctions of your endocrine and immune system.

Nowadays, a lot of diets have become popular, many of them are good but “hell is full of the best intentions”, this means that, is it that all diets go well for everyone? When is it necessary to stop them?

The most responsible action is that an expert supervises the diet, its effects and to modify if it’s necessary.

In the world of physiotherapy, many tools have been developed to treat people but they are useless if the person continues with a high level of inflammation due to an inadequate diet or the level of stress is high and constant.

A good physiotherapy treatment must include a good referral to another professional when necessary. Health professionals must also be interrelated!

Taking care of yourself is an exciting adventure, which sometimes requires patience, creativity, effort … do not be discouraged because health professionals will help you on this journey.
