Is there a link between emotional stress and physical illness? It seems that most people think so and I would have to agree. Unfortunately, there are still those who try to cure the physical while paying little attention to the emotional problems that are the root cause. Why do you think this is so? Is it because many people refuse to admit that their emotions are the problem?
