The biology of fear.

April 2014

Fear is the greatest creator of diseases, and the road to good health involves facing and conquering our fears, says Shivi Verma
I suffered from eczema, psoriasis, stomach disorders and depression for a pretty long time. I sought help in medications but they provided only temporary relief. I blamed my diseases for my lack of dynamism, and lack of material progress in life. In a way I hid behind my diseases to explain my failures in life. When I got married, my husband’s dynamism and take-on-the-world attitude inspired me to look beyond my limitations, and focus on my abilities. The moment I changed my mindset, the medicines began to work their magic on me. As I focussed on doing what I should, instead of brooding about fearful consequences, my body began to respond positively.
