On one hand,imaginary illnesses begin in the mind and later manifest in the physical body.

Treatment:Body and most importantly the mind should be targeted.

It will be a revelation to many that majority of diseases fall under the imaginary category.

Solomon,the wisest man,says:”For as a man thinks within himself, so he is.”

On the other hand,real diseases have their origin in the physical body.If they persist they affect the mind as well.Any chronic illness takes its toll on the mental health of the individual.This then makes the conditions worse because what happens for someone with imaginary diseases repeats itself.

Treatment: Body and then the mind.

NB: I deliberately left out spiritual influence on diseases because the mind is a portal through which such negative incursions take place.An unregenerated mind is a potential battle ground!
