Can Negative Thinking Make You Sick?
I've been saying for a long time that the root defense for a majority of illness is your mind. As an anecdote (small sample size), both of my sisters and my mother have issues with depression/anxiety/cynicism. They are sick frequently. Whether it be viral (flu), seasonal (allergies), bacterial (strep, pneumonia) or whatever. OTOH, I have always had been positive and have never had mental issues. Believe it or not, I've never been sick. Not since I was 1. I've been exposed just the same.
