Surely among the greatest blessings of life is health. Without it, nothing else matters very much. With good health, every other blessing is greatly enhanced.
As I counsel people about their various problems, I am convinced that our thinking directly affects our health. Many people who are in poor health, due to worry over financial problems, find it almost uncanny how fast their health improves as their financial situation improves.
A fine businessman, who had enjoyed good health for a number of years, faced serious financial setbacks in his business. Soon he developed gastric ulcers that later were found to be malignant, making several operations necessary. He is now on the way to complete recovery, which his doctors assure is possible. His wife recently stated, however, that every time he incurs a financial loss, he must return to bed. But when he receives good news about his financial affairs, his spirit soars, and he enjoys normal well-being.
The studies of psychosomatic medicine and holistic healing are surely wonderful steps forward in helping people to realize how strongly their mental states influence the condition of their bodies.
