Illnesses from the mind

April 4, 2007 2:16pm CST
I have been confident in the past few years that psychosomatic illnesses comprise over 70% of all the illnesses known to man. But then somebody older than me who has done a lot more researching than I do gave a shock - she said the figure is now close to 90%! Wow! That means that even diabetis can be psychosomatic.

I would say it's closer to 95% without doing any research. Thought precedes action, non flowing action creates tension, non flowing action is created by thought, tension creates dis-ease.

I wouldn't be surprised...many illnesses are caused by our own minds. It is possible for a person to use their mind to heal themselves so it makes sense that the mind could also cause a disease. I know a few people that claim to have diseases that are not detectable. It is kinda crazy how the human mind can work to help or harm us.

Hi, Razpal. I agree with you that most diseases are psychsomatic. Some members of my family are taking diabetic meds. My doc tried to diagnose me with the disease. The meds he prescribe for me caused me to bite my gums each night. So I began chewing gum each night to prevent the gum biting. But I stopped taking the meds for my own good. My latest doctor tried to diagnose me with the same disease and I refused to take the prescription. So the next few months that I visited him he told me that my blood sugar was a little high but he doesn't know why. But he didn't try to give me anymore meds. So you don't have to accept everything that the doctors try to give to you. Even my 84 year old mom says that she doesn't believe anything that the doctors tell her.
