What is PNEI?


The psycho-neuro-endocrino-immunology (PNEI) is an emerging medical science that studies the interrelation of consciousness with the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
It also studies the stress systems. This science has found evidence that a human does not only have a body consisting of individual parts that require treatment by body part specialists, but that body, mind and spirit are inseparable entities.

Our physical health is largely dependent on our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In fact, thoughts and feelings create a complex cascade of biochemical changes which directly effect our health. Chronic stress plays havoc with the immune system, because nerve endings have been found in tissues that produce, develop and store immune system cells. At the same time, the thymus, lymph nodes, spleen and bone marrow (all vital parts of the immune system) respond to signals from the brain. Mental attitude not only influences how readily we become sick, but also how quickly we recover from illness, wounds and surgery.

PNEI is remarkable because it explains how any form of stress can lead to health problems. The stress may have been triggered by how you used your mind (psychological), how you've used your body (physically), or by how your body functions internally (physiologically).


PNI represents the dynamic connections and pathways in the body between who you are as a person, what is important to you, how you use your mind and your immunity. PNI represents those dynamic connections with your hormonal environment (endocrine system). The science behind these connections is becoming well-studied across the world, particularly in the USA.

What is VERY important is that PNI and PNE pathways explain how ANY form of stress can lead to compromised health. So the stress could have arisen from how you used your mind (psychological), how you’ve used your body (physically), or to do with how your body functions internally (physiologically).

So ANY combination of stressors can impact on your well-being. Indeed many complex conditions and symptoms that are not-easy-to diagnose or treat conventionally (including mind problems) often have a stress dimension to them.
Which is GREAT NEWS, because it opens up a whole new range of possibilities for enhancing well-being and treating complex conditions such as CFS, some forms of cancer, autoimmune disorders and lots of other not-easily-diagnosable conditions and symptoms.
