Perhaps the greatest contributor to ill health in society today is stress. Psychosomatic medicine estimates that 70% to 90% of all illnesses are functional, dependent upon one’s state of mind and emotions, rather than organic, based on a virus of some kind.
The tension and anxiety connected with daily life in a modern city can be enormous. How you handle such stress can make the difference between your being a healthy person, or not. Over a prolonged period of time, stress can lead to chronic disorders or affect the immune system’s ability to fight off disease.
