BrainBody25 Program

Most mental health programs miss the boat because they focus on the symptoms rather than the cause...

Which is why most things end up coming back or feeling worse overtime.

Which no one wants.

We all want to get better, but that requires us to look at health from a different perspective, a more holistic perspective.

It is now clear that mental health is more than psychology.

It is our foods, nutrients, gut health, hormones, immune system, sleep, movement etc. to name a few. These are the elements of health and the foundation to optimal living.

The History Behind BrainBody25

BrainBody25 program was created by Dr. Sharleen McDowall, a Clinical Psychologist, and after many years of treating patients with emotional issues with psychological interventions but came to realize that something was missing.

Although psychologists are trained to use a bio-psycho-social approach when treating patients, she realized that biological aspects of the person that could potentially impact a person's mental well-being were not being addressed by psychology. Psychological interventions were not equipped to treat these physical concerns. She had patients with a variety of health concerns (eg. hormonal issues, blood sugar deregulation or digestion issues, etc.) that were significantly impacting her patient's mental health.

Feeling helpless time and time again, Dr. McDowall began thinking about how she could include healthcare services in her practice. Being passionate about helping patients achieve optimal health and happiness, the BrainBody25 program was born, a whole-body system approach to addressing the primary areas of health that could potentially impact a person's psychological and physical health.

Influenced by the renowned psychologist Abraham Maslow's theory of psychological health, and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the Be5 Living program includes 5 Levels and 25 Elements of Health, with each level building upon the other. However, each level is not mutually exclusive and patients are required to conduct an integrative health assessment (IHA) prior to the program in order to create a personalized treatment plan to determine the individual elements of mind-body health that requires the most attention.
