HOW YOUR MIND MAY MAKE YOU Ill

Medical colleges like those at Harvard, Cornell and Columbia now require intensive courses in the mental roots of illness, and a new medicine is being practiced, called "psychosomatic" from the Greek words "mind" and" body."
Sometimes the emotional conflict is so deep-seated that the patient must be referred to a psychiatrist. But a general practitioner trained in mind-body relationships can usually uncover the difficulty - even when the patient has carefully hidden it from himself.
There are, of course, problems which psychosomatic medicine cannot solve. Countless ailments are not caused by any mental state. Some difficulties, economic and physical, are not readily banished. In such cases the modern physician helps his patient face his problem squarely, and build up satisfactory compensations. When we stop fighting the inevitable we release energy which enables us to create a richer life, even in the face of poor health.
Young medical graduates of today are often able to help cases that baffle physicians of the old school. After older doctors had failed to cure a little girl of persistent vomiting, a recent graduate of the Cornell Medical Center was consulted. The laboratory reported no intestinal difficulty, but a friendly talk with the child revealed a painful emotional upset. She had remarked in a moment of pique that she wished her teacher would die. Three days later the teacher did drop dead of heart failure. The child, who felt sure that her wish had caused the tragedy, reacted with stomach trouble. When the doctor convinced her that she was not responsible for the teacher's death, she recovered.
"Once again," writes Dr. Franz Alexander, "the patient as a human being with his worries, fears, hopes and despairs, as an individual whole and not only as thepossessor of organs, is becoming the legitimate object of medical interest." It is more important, progressive doctors now insist, to know what sort of patient has a disease, than what sort of disease the patient has.
