HOW YOUR MIND MAY MAKE YOU Ill

Thanks to recent research, medical schools are teaching doctors to trace and correct the mental states that cause bodily ailments

Condensed from Your Life
Elsie McCormick

OR MORE THAN a decade a group of outstanding physicians has been investigating the strange influence that our minds have on our bodies. They have evidence even stronger than the medical profession previously suspected that mental conditions can upset normal physical functions, can weaken our resistance to infection, and, most remarkable of all, can actually cause physical change in vital organs. Dr. Flanders Dunbar and associates at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City studied 1500 patients suffering from a variety of illnesses. An emotional upset lay at the root of more than half the cases.
At Johns Hopkins, Dr. G. Canby Robinson examined 50 patients who complained of nausea or stomach pains; he could find a definite organic reason in only six cases. The rest were literally worrying themselves sick. One man's symptoms began years before, on the day he lost his job. A woman confessed that hers developed after listening to a description of stomach cancer on the radio.
Few ailments show so clearly as stomach ulcer the close connections between mind and body. At the New York Hospital, Dr. Harold G. Wolff tested Zog patients to see how emotional upsets affected the flow of hydrochloric acid, which aggravates stomach ulcers. While making his tests he led the conversation around to topics he suspected would be painful. The acid count soared when the bankrupt business or the thwarted career was being discussed. It doubled at the mere mention of an estranged wife.
