Modern medicine has found that 65-90% of human diseases result from psychological depression, such as cancer, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, peptic ulcer, and irregular menstruation. Therefore, they are known as psychosomatic diseases.

Why does the human mind so closely affect the body?

If people stay restless, angry, nervous, or greedy all day and do bad things, they retain high levels of stress hormones for a long time, causing the body’s immune system to be suppressed and destroyed. The cardiovascular system becomes particularly vulnerable due to the long-term fatigue.

In psychology, it has been found that when a man is furious, his body can produce enough stress hormones to kill a mouse. “Stress hormones” are also known as “toxic hormones.”

Next time you are feeling stress or are tense, remember that your health is in your mind… literally.
