1 The Psychosomatic Network

If you start to think about your physical or moral condition, you usually find that you are sick.  ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Proverbs in Prose

I used to think that the term psychosomatic meant that any disease, ache or pain you had, was really all in your head, not real, made up and false.   It wasn't a good thing.  You probably believe that to be true also...but the truth is that we do have a communication network, uniting all the systems of your body.  It is the psychosomatic network, a intercellular network and it's mode of communication is through those linking elements, informational substances known as peptides, hormones and neurotransmitters. (These are the substances that tell a cell what to do.) 

Access to this system is not just though the brain, but via all sensory organs, based on the person's focus of attention. 

So how is this helpful for you to know??   Just know that your thoughts and your state of relaxation have a effect on and are part of the psychosomatic network.  That your thoughts both conscious and subconscious affect the physical state of your body.   And in reality your body and mind are one.

Num. 1  p 34
