Mind and Body again

An injured mind can down our body defense mechanisms. And this in turn can even cause mortality.A close relatives or friend's death can produce so much trauma to the mind that it can trigger an illness which can take the life out of the body.So often you might have heard that the spouse getting sick and dying immediately after the partner's death.
Recently an 80 plus man, a widower and a patient of mine for many years , who fought and won against many illnesses succumbed to trivial infection immediately after his last son moved out of his house thus making him feel lonely.
The emotional support you get from your loved ones is as important as any medicine or an expert doctor's care.
