How to Outwit the Six Ghosts of Fear: The Fear of ILL HEALTH

Man fears ill health because of the terrible pictures which have been planted in his mind of what may happen if death should overtake him.

It has been shown most convincingly that the fear of disease, even where there is not the slightest cause for fear, often produces the physical symptoms of the disease feared.

Powerful and mighty is the human mind! It builds or it destroys.

Disease sometimes begins in the form of negative thought impulse. Such an impulse may be passed from one mind to another, by suggestion, or created by an individual in his own mind.

The seed of fear of ill health lives in every human mind. Worry, fear, discouragement, disappointment in love and business affairs, cause this seed to germinate and grow.

Disappointment in business and in love stand at the head of the list of causes of fear of ill health.


  • AUTOSUGGESTION: the habit of negative use of self-suggestion by looking for, and expecting to find the symptoms of all kinds of disease
  • HYPOCHONDRIA: the habit of talking of illness, concentrating the mind upon disease, and expecting its appearance until a nervous break occurs. It is brought on by negative thinking and nothing positive thought can affect a cure.
  • EXERCISE: fear of ill health often interferes with proper physical exercise, and results in over-weight, by causing one to avoid outdoor life.
  • SUSCEPTIBILITY: fear of ill health breaks down Nature’s body resistance, and creates a favorable condition for any form of disease one may contact.
  • SELF-CODDLING: the habit of making a bid for sympathy, using imaginary illness as the lure.
  • INTEMPERANCE: the habit of using alcohol or narcotics to destroy pains such as headaches, neuralgia, etc., instead of eliminating the cause, is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
