In brief: Mind-Body connection

Great question! mind-body medicine focuses on the interactions between mind and body -- and the powerful ways emotional, mental, social and spiritual factors can directly affect health.
The nervous system is only part of this, as there are many aspects that have not yet been discovered or measured. Treatments include relaxation, hypnosis, visual imagery, meditation, yoga, and biofeedback.

In brief: Body mind

The mind and body used to be thought of as entirely separate, but they are integrally connected.
The mind can change the brain and the brain affects the mind. They are two sides of the same coin, but have qualitative differences. By maintaining a positive state of mind and also practicing mindfulness, your body, which obviously includes your brain, is healthier.
