First, the URL below is a video of a by: Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D. DHL.- Is a graduate from Australia’s Queensland University with degrees in psychology, physiology, neuroscience, and medicine, and then came to the United States as a Fulbright Scholar.  He is now at the University of California at Irvine where he is professor of psychiatry, philosophy, and anthropology, as well as a professor in the religious studies program. His research has included work in the nature of psychological health and wellbeing. The video presentation – Exercise Benefits Body, Brain, and Mind. Exercise Can Prevent and Heal Disorders Such as Anxiety, Depression & Age-Related Memory Loss – Part 2 of 10 part series on Lifestyle and Mental Health.
