What is chronic illness and emotional pain?
There is a clear link between mind and body. When the mind is fatigued or not thinking in a positive way, it affects the body.
If the problems the mind is experiencing aren’t dealt with promptly and in a suitable way, chronic illness and emotional pain will be the result.
Many people are amazed to discover that the physical problems which they experience are related to emotional hurt they have suffered in the past.
The link between the onset of a physical condition and some form of mental trauma, like depression and anxiety, may not be obvious — sometimes people suffer tragic circumstances that affect them gravely mentally, but not develop any physical issue until years later.
Sometimes people develop crippling physical symptoms out of the blue. They may not even be aware that they have any mental trauma to deal with.
