Man is extremely complicated matter, consisting of soul and body.
Already in antiquity, people have noticed that when diagnosing human health, one cannot separate the soul and body because together they form an inseparable whole. Among others, such observations were made by Plato, who wrote that “the treatment of many diseases is not known to the doctors of the Hellas, because they do not look at the whole, which is also to be studied, because it cannot be a healthy part when the whole is unwell.”
Psychosomatics are understood as a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of the human body, which focuses its attention on the influence of psychological factors on the emergence of a disease state. The term was used in medical science for the first time by J.Ch. Heinroth in 1818.
Psychosomatic proponents believe that disease is not only the result of viruses or bacteria, but also a reaction to the internal life of a human being. Our physical health depends largely on our mood, thoughts and emotions, and if problems arise in our internal lives, they will eventually become manifest throughout our body with disease.
