I personally believe that your spiritual state has a lot to do with your health. If you are always down and depressed then it will have an effect on your physical body. Like wise if your happy and outgoing it will have a positive effect on your health. Proverbs 17:22: A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

yes psychologists have shown research on how our mental health effects our physical health. Even studies have been done where people with cancer have lived longer with a more positive attitude

Yes, I agree that our mental state has an effect on our bodies. Apparently it's been proven now, so it's ok to believe it. :) The Bible had it right all along.

I agree 100% with you on this. I try to keep myself happy espically with the illness I have multiple sclrosis. it can cause a lot of depression so I keep myself busy and happy and I fight depression as well as my health.
