Here’s Alex from the OHC (as mentioned in the Healing Plan) doing a brief video about how emotions are at play in chronic illness. Not that it is all in the mind, more that suppressing them can leave your body screaming to get your attention – that’s how I see it anyway!
I think actually a lot of the time, we are not consciously suppressing them but it is happening at a subconscious level.

Fascinating. Here’s Alex anyway in case it helps and, of course, far more on this and what to do about it in the Healing Plan for you:
