Doctors are estimating that as much as 70% if all illnesses are psychosomatic.

The University of Michigan describes,

“A disorder that involves both mind and body is called a psychosomatic illness. In other words, the illness may be emotional or mental in origin but have physical symptoms. Psychosomatic illnesses are not imaginary. They are physical disorders in which both emotions and thought patterns are believed to play a central role, and usually develop when a person’s disease-fighting ability is weakened due to stress.”

But it’s even more than stress, Emotional conditions such as anger, anxiety, depression and guilt are also contribute to health problems.
