Psychological reasons that lead to physical sickness

In my previous article Why do we become ill i said that 75% of illnesses were found to be caused by psychological factors.

You don't catch a cold because a virus or bacteria suddenly appeared out of nowhere but you do catch a cold when your immunity goes lower to the extent that it allows the existing viruses and Bactria to land in your body.

In this article i will tell you about some astonishing facts that explains why do we sometimes get sick.

Getting sick for a psychological reason

  • Guilt can lead to sickness: If you feel guilty because of doing something really bad and you didn't manage to forgive yourself your subconscious mind might force your immunity to become lower in order to let you become sick. By doing so it hopes to provide you with some relief of the guilt through self punishment!!!
  • A cry for help: If a person needs help badly and if no one is paying attention to him then his subconscious mind might lower his immunity to make him ill so that he draws the attention of the people around him. Some people cut themselves in order to let others notice the scars and give them some care and attention. Some people might develop serious illnesses in order to attract serious attention, stuttering can be a good example
  • Suicide attempt: Because of the pressure a person who thinks about suicide is subjected to his subconscious mind sometimes tries to fulfill the desire by making him become sick and so escape the blame!!
  • Compensation: If a person failed to peruse his goals or to reach self actualization he might even develop a disability in order to blame it rather than blame himself for his failure!! By doing so he protects his ego and escapes guilt

That's serious right?

As you just saw serious things take place inside the subconscious mind and that's why you must do two very important things:

The first is to get more self understanding so that you become aware of what's happening behind the scenes in your subconscious mind.

The second is to learn how to deal with the different bad emotions so that you don't motivate your subconscious mind to take a serious action such as the ones mentioned in this article.

How to maintain a good health

There is no doubt that learning how to maintain a proper psychological state will help you in living a healthier life. Once you learn exactly how your subconscious mind works you will be able to prevent it , to a certain extent, from interfering with your health.

And even if you didn't manage to stop this effect you will still be able to take the right actions that can help you solve the emotional problems that led to this sickness.

In my article Why do we feel bad when we are sick i explained how physical pain can actually result in mood problems. In other words physical pain can lead to psychological pain just like psychological pain can lead to sickness.

In order to live a good life you need to understand those two aspects well.
