Disease Comes from Emotions: What Psychosomatic Illnesses Can Teach Us

It has been proven that most psychosomatic issues stem from self-loathing. We should keep in mind that we can always help ourselves by looking into our soul. A great many of us are afraid of that, but do be aware of the fact that our souls are the only place where everything is complete. We are the creators of our lives, and what happens around us is only a projection of our own thoughts and what kind of relationship we have with ourselves. If one loves themselves and is happy about their life, negative thinking can be eradicated.

Do you have thyroid, abdominal or tooth problems? It is said that once we find the spiritual cause of an illness, diseases can miraculously disappear in a flash.

What each organ says and how we can help ourselves

The heart is about emotions, self-worth, and the constant chase after material objects and forgetting about ourselves. That is why it is necessary to stop sometimes, to enjoy a moment for ourselves, to stop constantly thinking about the needs of others. If you feel a pain in the heart, remember that the best medication is tears, because they are remedial and flush away all that burdens and saddens us.

The stomach teaches us to tell people what we feel and to be strong in expressing our emotions, because it is precisely through leaving everything to ourselves that leads to the notorious pressure and pain in the abdominal area, where all grievances, fears and unexpressed emotions reside.
